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.

So, what time does the camping site _actually_ open?

Hi all,

We've been coming to Roskilde for a few years now. The first time we came on wednesday, and last year it was on monday. This year I want to be there when the gates open, but I'm not quite sure _when_ that is. The website says 08:00 on sunday, but I've heard from people that it's actually on midnight between saturday/sunday.

Can someone tell me which it really is? And, do East and West open at different times?

Well, last year when i was at the airport in Bergen, i got a text from my sister saying that they were in and had put up their tents at 3AM i think... So it pretty much opens when the people in the queue manage to break down the gates

I hope we will avoid this kind of behaviour this year.

Doesn't seem likely but I certainly hope we can avoid such juvenile behaviour as well.

Queueing at East again, btw?

Yeah, that was kinda the main reason why Wests fence went down because of the policy "Everyone should get the same advantage" :p

Always east!

In case of the fence crashing, we will be ready!

An opening on time sems unlikely, This is what i think of the only eksample of massive antisocial behavejour at roskilde! What can the festivals answer on how to solve it be?
In my opinion putting pressure on the festival, to make harsh desitions on this matter, means more rules and penaltys for for us and higher costs for roskilde plus a bad work inviroment for the volenteers!

Dude! You seriously need to run a spell check on that post.

Cattle prods seems like a mighty fine idea, though.

i think i read some thing about that there will be a fence of orange guards between the fence and the people in the waiting area. So that people would have to ram down a line of frightened teen girls before the would be able to push down the real fence.

i think this is a really good way making sure that people will stay until 8 in the morning. as long as its not my little sister being guard that night. icon_rolleyes.gif

on the other hand combining this new human fence with 24 hours of drunk people that wants to get in.
i have fate in that the roskilde crowd is pretty peace loving on the other hand i have seen episodes of people being violent idiots.

i wouldn't now how to find my spelling mistakes.

viva dyslexia.

Being on the campsite before 08:00 = Cut off wristband

Only thing that would work, end of discussion...

Unfortunately also quite impossible to enforce.

that could be really fun though a few hundred camp guards running after approximately what 20000 guests. And try to explain to them that if they could just lend them there wrist the would like to make a little change.

I guess you are right.
My head started drifting along a bit, for a moment there as I felt all the aggrevation from last years que, still not having got my wristband after 12 hrs in line, and seeing the site filling up with people... banghead.gif banghead.gif banghead.gif

A big fence with solid plates and a bit of barbwire on top, and supportbeams on the inside.. maybe that could do it..

Less could do it. If there was a fence like the one in front of the stages (maybe they could even use those and just move it) in front of the real fence with a few meters between. Crowd control would be rather easy as it's pretty easy to spot people climbing a fence with all their gear.
