  • 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.

If I remember correctly the date on the clock was maeasuring time for Sunday last year too. And here it says it begins on the 28th. http://roskilde-festival.dk/practical/

One night in line doesn´t sound very tempting as I´m 137 years old, but if it comes to that I hope someone will bring some fisk to the line.

A night at a hostel isn´t a bad idea at all or maybe I´ll just buy that bottle of Fisk and join the queue...

because the want people to stay the whole sunday and not go home, they think it is because the pre party is too long

I don't think that will work. Instead they could make Saturday the last day so people can return home during the Sunday.
Make Thursday a full day as well (instead of only starting at 15:00 and ending early) and program some of the 'regular' acts during the warm-up period.

The fact that the festival starts on Thursday afternoon is no longer relevant as 98% of the guest will have arrived during the warm-up anyway.

Here is the officel answer to it:

We’re cutting 24 hours from the opening in 2014 – because we believe that eight days of Roskilde are better than nine!

A few years back – 2010 to be specific – we moved the opening day from Sunday to Saturday. We did this to have a more calm arrival situation – however, some of the more than 30,000 early birds were a bit too eager to get into the campsite and start building their camp. Back then you could get your Roskilde wristband in Tivoli from Friday – and many people went directly from Tivoli to Roskilde. By opening the campsite in the evening and presenting entrance booking have helped a bit on the atmosphere.

A consequence of the prolonged warm-up was that many – us included – felt that the festival seemed a bit ’out of focus’ and unclear. We’ve stated earlier that a great deal of participants felt tired when we reached Thursday. We still believe this. But there’s more to it. This is just as much about focusing the many events and activities that we spend so many hours on preparing and creating, so that they don’t spread over as many days – that way they will appear sharper and will be noticed and used by more people.

So this year we’re trying to sharpen things in a lot of places. We concentrate our art projects on fewer geographical areas, we create a brand-new music stage at CITYcentre East, we gear up our Dream City and Street City and much more. And we cut off 24 hours of the opening.

We want to appear sharp and relevant for everyone who want to dive into a week full of unpredictable Roskilde living. And it’s important for us to develop and sharpen the festival and not just repeat the same year after year. And with four days of camping craziness before we begin with four days of music at the festival site, we hope to find the right balance again.

And just to make it clear: we’re NOT cutting one day off to save money. We still build a city from nothing on a field, and we still need to rent the same amount of equipment and gear regardless if we opened Saturday or Sunday. Or Friday, even. We wouldn’t save much. And on that note, we don’t spend less money on music in 2014 compared to 2013 either.

Does anybody know anything about the waiting areas this year? Is there any? When will they open? Is there an entrance booking system (didn´t say anything such when I purchased my ticket...)? The reason I´m asking is that I have my flights for Saturday and I´m pondering on my options if I´ll join the queue then already or not.

So if there are no budgetary reasons to make the festival 1 day shorter, the question becomes only bigger: why in the world would you voluntarily want to eliminate one day of fun and happiness?

From the official reasoning I understand that it is to 'focus' and it was 'too long'. But too long for who? I wish it was a 2-week festival. I have never heard anybody complain about the length, and people that can't handle 9 days of fun were always free to leave anytime they wished.

Is it because there were people that didn't understand why you would have 5 warmup days with 4 days of music? As a mathematician I appreciate the yearning for symmetry in numbers, but in this case it makes me sad.

I do not understand why 8 days would be better than 9 either.
Anyhow, most likely this will mean that people will be waiting in line (or in whatever shape) for two days instead of one. After all, people will still finish work / school on Friday and then get ready.
Now this will be fun... banghead.gif
