Quick guide for the search
X


  • Wildcard-Search
    With the help of a so-called wildcard you can look for several search words, which have the same word beginning. If you search e.g. for "Typo*", the search will find everything that begins with "Typo" : Typo3, Typoscript, Typocode, Typo3user... etc.
  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.
  • Search for user
    It is possible to limit the search result on answers of certain users. In addition to the retrieval query attach still another "user:username" and find the results, which were written by this certain user. If the username could not be found this will be ignored.

Since this is my first time going to Roskilde I'm a little confused.

I and 7 other friends want to camp together (we just got one big tent, so we kinda have too) but how can we be sure that we'll find a big enough area? And how big of an area can we claim? Are there a limit on how big your tent can be?

I thought area E looked like a good place to camp, but do you think we'll get a big enough spot if we book it, and arrive at the 27. around 4 am? Is it even possible to get wristbands and enter the camp at that time of the night? Are the other camps(that you can't book access to) open? Will it be easier to get a good spot there?

Yeah, that was a lot of questions. Hoping for a lot of answers icon_smile.gif

Area E is one of the areas you can book. Do so and you're sure to get a space there. You arrive at 4 in the morning, and that means the booking is still valid for another 8 hours. After that, it's first come, first served.

Generally it shouldn't be a problem. Remember, there's usually room also for the many more people coming later in the week.

I would try my luck at area P instead. Last year E had all the large theme and party camps so it might fill up quickly again.
Remember that you all need reservations if you all want to enter one of the booked spaces before 8 a.m. on Sunday.

And to answer your question if there's going to be people to let you in at 4am, of course.
This is a place that never sleeps and all entrances/ticket booths will be open at all times.
Go for booking of E. Read more about it under Practical info.
You can claim as big space as your tents base area, don't expect to have too much room to your next door neighbours though.

Thanks for the answers! icon_smile.gif

Are the camping areas very different? Like when it comes to average age, partymood, musicgenres, soundlevel, druguse, violence ect.?

I would say no.
Ages are mixed all over, drugs all over, violence only in the lines to the ladies bathrooms.
Area J is supposed to be "Silent&Clean" so if you are looking for somewhat lower noice that's the place for you.
And in regular, the closer you get to the festival area, the more party. But if you're not arriving until 4am sunday morning, those spots are full anyway.

The partier the better! But if we book entrance to camp E (isn't that pretty close to the festival area?) will it be full when we arrive?

Yes, Area E is a good deal since you can make camping bookings for it as well.
Bookings guarantee you a spot on E up to 8 a.m sunday morning, then the leftover spots are free for everyone to take.
However many of the veterans of Roskilde would never set foot on the west side of the railroad since it wasn't there from the birth of the festival. :

What kind of tent do you have? You mention one tent for 8 people.
Even with the reservation system this year I think you will be pushing your luck with a large tent on E if you are not queuing.

Not really sure what the tent looks like since it's not mine.
Hm, what should we do then, go for a camp without booking? I really wanted to be there when it opened, but it crashed with other travel plans.

Well, the whole idea with booking is that there is a spot for you until 8a.m sunday morning.
I'm sure they have calculated the number of reservations for each of Area P, E and J so that everyone that books will have room for their tents. And there has to be lots of free areas even if you arrive at 4a.m in the night.
P and surrounding areas will be more party then E and J.
And if you stay at any other area, you still will feel the smell of P.

I think it said on Facebook that the bookable areas would only be around 60% filled via the system, and that the rest is left untouched as a safety margin.

I hope that translates to lots of space, because some will inevitably bring more than one tent, and some of the volunteers are going to claim some space too icon_wink.gif

Great! Then we better book soon!

I got a few questions about pavilions too. Do you have to bring one, or can you buy/rent one at Roskilde? Can we have more then one next to our tent?

You can buy them at the camp store at "city center" East. One should be enough for an 8 people camp. If you put up more you'll probably get asked to take 'm down.

Deleted user Yeah careful with 2 gazebos. You risk getting it pulled down, or worse, someone just setting up their tents underneath both of them.

Last year there was a rule of only one gazebo per camp. It's alright, I guess, except for the fact that big camps with 20-30 persons often need two...

In your case, if you only are 8 persons in total, one will be more than sufficient.

I think they cost around 150 DKK. Add to that the refund levied on gazebos. That means you have to pay an additional 100 DKK, which you will get back once you leave the camping site with your gazebo again, or hand it over to the recycling-people.

I don't think they enforce that gazebo rule very strictly. I think it's there mostly to have something to refer to, if some loonies put up an excessive amount of gazebos. We were around 30 in my camp last year, and we squeezed together beneath two gazebos, and that I think was perfectly alright with the festival crew.
