  • 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.

Yeah, me too, I'm getting so old that if I sleep more than 5-6 hours in a row, it's a luxury but I usually need a midday 45 minute-1hour nap as well.

I too am so Roskilde accustomed that I can sleep almost anywhere regardless of the surroundings and noise level at Roskilde. I don't even need a sleeping bag or even matress anymore, I'm fine with sleeping on the ground, as long as I have a blanket to shield me from the cold of the ground.

Wow icon_eek.gif
That´s hardcore! I need at least a bed of blonds, soaked in jack daniels, sprinkled with weed and chunks of garlicbread!!! Sleeping tight! HÆH

Did it all week last year, where I didn't have a tent, or matress. Only a sleeping bag, and a blanket. It was fine, although I probably would have preferred at least one or two nights with a more comfortable sleeping arrangement.

I would love to shelter you, but my wife hate drunk and stoned people!
I sleep in the grass too. hehe

hehehe

It wasn't until roskilde '01 until I felt I had gone too old I actually got my first matress and sleeping bag, before that I just had a blanket. So I'm pretty hardcore in that respect. icon_biggrin.gif

Plus you can snuggle with Mr Boominator now! icon_lol.gif

Hey guys! As this will be my first Roskilde Experience, I have some questions to you veterans!
First of all, and most important: Is it possible to get any sleep? I've been to other, smaller festivals and I haven't slept that much but three days without a good night's sleep isn't that terrible. I imagine a whole week must be, though! So people, do you have any tips? Where to camp, and so on.
This does of course not mean that I don't wanna party, just not "til' the break of dawn" icon_razz.gif

Well this was the only question I could come up with at this time, but I'll be back!


and you get earplugs when you exchange your ticket for bracelet as well,


WHAT? Since when? When I've been at RF (06, 07) we had to buy earplugs at the merch store or bring them from home...

But Wadso, as it is already said. It won't be a problem to get sleep, unless you live right next to the festival entrances. In 2007 I slept close to the service-area, and eventhough it was a quite popular area, it was still possible to get a descent night's sleep!

I think the earplugs give-away was only last year. Not sure if they repeat this this year. They where fairly decent earplugs though, unfortunately I lost them. I've now ordered a pair of Elacin ER-20 earplugs which apparently are specially made for musicians and concert guests.

Sounds like they have active noise cancellation with that kind of name. Do they also sing you a lullaby?

youre right about that...

But i don't realy use earplugs.. I think it ruins the sound a lot at the concerts.. and as said before, i don't think sleeping is a problem..

It's just a matter of buying some really high-profile ear plugs OR just leave them at the edge of your ear canal so the worst noise doesn't trash your eardrums.

I'm looking forward to the day when it's posible to do eardrum transplantations... icon_cool.gif That is going to be awsome!

Elacin ER-20 apparently have a linear profile so you still hear all the frequencies at the correct level only several dB less loud. They also have custom made plugs you'll have to have fitted a specialized store but the ER-20 are one size fits all.

For sleeping I use the normal disposable ear plug but I've also used wax earplugs for sleeping, this is even better.

I use some Sennheiser earphones that almost completely stop incoming noise, and play music at very low level on my iPod if I really have trouble sleeping.

I was going to see a 02.45 concert last year and was so exhausted so I laid on the ground to wait for it. People felt so sorry for me that I got a hug, a sip of wine and half a glass of beer within 5 minutes. icon_smile.gif
They thought I was half passed out from alcohol though..nice to give me more then. icon_smile.gif

You should try Grado headphones! A bit pricy, but they got some of the best sound money can buy. With a headphone amp and non compressed music (cd) Oh boy what a joy! Got a pair of grado 325i. Sweet!!!

The grado is not a good headphone to fall asleep with or doing any sort often listening to in a noisy enviroment ... a good in-ear type like the Sennheisers are much better.

Quite right you are! With a family and a job whos got me on call 24/7, listening to music when falling asleep is not an option. Sadly! So when i enjoy some tunes in a rare moment, it has to be the best it can be!

I never had any troubles sleeping, but earplugs are nice to have.

When it is cold/raining at roskilde you sleep better, because the temp in your tent/sleeping bag is better.

When it is hot, like 05, 06, 08 you don't get as much sleep because your tent is like a sauna at 8 o'cloak in the morning.

I'm hoping for average weathericon_biggrin.gif

Me too, every year. Cloudy, a little breeze and about 23°C would be perfect every day.
