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.

I have been wondering...

...why there´s always people standing in row in the middle of the swimming lake?
...how come you Danes always have one beer in your hand with no extra beers around even when far away from your camp. Is it a magic beer that fills itself up or do you just drink veeeery sloooowly? We finns need a sixpack just going to the toilet..

There's a sand reef with swallow water built there.
We rely on the people we meet to provide the next beer, and they do from us as well.

Haven't noticed that about the beers, will look out for it this year. I often find myself strapping a six pack to my belt or buying some new beers on the way to where I'm going, or rely on the people I'm going to meet.

But what if the people you meet rely on you??

Ok. One more.

...is it possible to buy a camping chair somewhere in Roskilde city (or near Copenhagen train station) after 6 pm on Saturday. Beer is also needed. And a bottle of Fisk.

Beer and Fisk is quite possible, but it's not many stores in Roskilde that are open after 6 PM. Maybe the Føtex supermarket near Roskilde Station carries camping chairs.

Ok, thanks! Didn´t know there was a supermarket there, so this helps a lot. Maybe I´ll just buy enough beer and Fisk then, so I won´t need a chair even in case of rain...

I also would like to know how is the walk to East/South entrance from Roskilde station. If I remember correctly there are some big roads I´ll have to cross. Are there sidewalks for pedestrians there? How to avoid getting lost? How much is the Fisk etc...

It's quite a walk if you have a lot of luggage (still I've done it several times), but it's pretty much straight ahead all the way, so it's no problem in terms of getting lost. Normally you just "go with the flow" of other people. You won't be in danger in terms of crossing roads either unless you jump out in out on the road in front of some cars icon_smile.gif. If there's a føtex (I don't know) they should have chairs (especially if it's in Roskilde!). Else I've often seen locals have a stand along the road where you can purchase a chair for around 100 DKK.

Price fisk in normal supermarket: 100 - 150 DKK
Price beer: Depends on the quality and if they have them on offer. You shouldn't buy beer in Denmark unless they are on sale. The difference is normally huge, and there's almost always some brand on sale.

Thank you, dear sir! The reason I asked if I could get lost, is that I´ll probably join the queue on Saturday. Don´t think there are that many people I can follow then and the festival busses don´t go yet. That´s also the main reason I´m desperate to get a chair before the gates open.

I´ll be fine with whatever they charge for beer in danish supermarket as I´m only taking as much as I need for one night (and I will have that bottle of Fisk too). The prices in the festival camping grounds are very reasonable for a finn, so I´ll just buy my beer there whenever needed.

Now I know How Much is the Fisk. But if I´m too tired to walk and want to go Faster, Harder you think I should rent a Scooter? (sorry about this one.. icon_smile.gif banghead.gif)

It is quite reasonable yes, even though they raise the prcis a little every year (which is just annoying as a fact.

Well it's under 2 km in a straight line, so it should be possible to walk. Event though it's saturday I'm pretty sure there will be people you can follow and talk to. People are crazy icon_biggrin.gif... Rent a scooter? WTF? Can you do that? Can't answer that. I'm in too good shape to know how it is not to walk icon_wink.gif

The scooter idea isn't really feasible.

Wait at the taxi stop outside of the station and see if you can tag along with some other festivalgoers who are taking a taxi towards your entrance of preference. The fare per person should be pretty reasonable when split between three or four people.

You guys are too young for an old man´s bad humour... icon_wink.gif But the taxi idea is great, somehow I didn´t think of that at all. I don´t mind a litlle walk, but with all that gear it might be better to split a cab (if there are other people coming on Saturday).

Bring Vodka, it is cheaper (well for me) and it will get you drunk faster than a 6 pack! You can everything inside or outside the camping area and there is that super cheap store in town as well. Which will be open on Sunday just for the festival goers.

Don't forget the Slushy machines in town, you can add vodka or rum and get really wasted on them!

You don't drink the vodka straight do you?

I like to wait with the strong liquer until a little later on the week, when it's harder to get drunk. (would really like to see some sort of chart of alcohol consumption during the 8 days icon_razz.gif ).

Well I am almost 2 meters tall, so I need something stronger or else I am just pissing all the time with Beer (Plus i am use to Austria beer which is like 6% alcohol). So I usually start off drinking Ruffitinis, which I always share. It is just Vodka and some Snow Cone Syrup and some Lemon Juice/Powdered drink mix and 7up or Sprite. It is strong but sdtill tastes like a soda. I usually have a liter of that and then I am good to go.

Try to find me and you can try it. I am easier to spot than one would think. I usually have a furry pimp hat and some sort f plastic farm animal on me.

Oh and 1.75 liters of Vodka only cost me $10.00 so I usually bring it in my luggage from the States.

Is there any way to get to Hilleröd from Roskilde after the concerts from Friday to Sunday. I have a friend living there this sommer. Night busses, trains?

Bus line 600S will take you from Roskilde Station to Hillerød Station. I think you would have to wait for a bus in the daytime though.
Otherwise you have to go to Copenhagen Central Station and take the E line of the S-trains.

Ok, thanks a lot. I wasn´t too clear. I was asking on her behalf if she can come to the festival and travel back-and-forth from Hilleröd each night.

The night after Friday and Saturday its possible to take bus 91N.

From Roskilde Station the bus departs at 00:41, 01:41 and 02:41 and it takes 1 hour and 22 minutes.



The night after Thurday is more difficult.


Take one off the trains back to København H from the festival train station, the train schedule is not annnounced yet but its usually a train every 30th minute and I´m guessing that it takes around 40 minutes to get into Copenhagen.

Then walk to Rådhuspladsen from where bus 94N goes to Hillerød from 01:30, 02:30 and 03:30, it takes 1 hour and 5 minutes.

According to rejseplanen.dk it takes 11 minutes to walk from København H to Rådhuspladsen.

Ok, thanks. Good to know there´s a nightbus. I think the journey via Copenhagen is too much if she wants to come back in the morning. I thought tent was totally out of the question, but I guess it´s not so there might not be need for her to travel back-and-forth. But thanks for the info anyway for both of you. 35 days, huh!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Any info on Føtex Roskilde. Somewhere in the net it says they´ll be open until 21 on Saturday, somewhere else it´s until 17. If someone knows the right opening hours, it would help a lot.

Also in some other thread someone said that the shuttle busses start going already on Saturday. Is this true or do I just remember wrong.
