It’s the hedonistic peak of many a young Scandinavian’s summer and a major player in Danish youth culture. Roskilde Festival, the biggest open-air music event in northern Europe, is back for its 2018 edition with a strong, strong line-up.
The musical billing for 2018 up there with other impressive line ups in recent years, with big names like Eminem, Nick Cave, Gorillaz and Nine Inch Nails all scheduled to appear.
True to Roskilde tradition, the camping area is opened on Saturday 30th June so that keen festival goers can find a good camping spot and soak up the atmosphere before the music begins in earnest on Wednesday 4th July.
Spending a week or just a day on Roskilde’s sprawling festival ground, with its many food stands, events and activities (designed to create a sense of community among the guests), is a unique and often formative experience for music lovers of any age. We think you’ll love it.
One-day tickets cost 1050 DKK; the full festival experience costs 2100 DKK.
