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.

Roskilde introduced me to the festival scene and for that I will be forever grateful.
One persistent problem with Roskilde from my perspective though.
The reckless, I-don't-have-to-act-like-a-grownup-and-will-throw-my-trash-where-ever-I-damn-well-please, attitude of party goers of all ages.
So I thought I would pass on a tip that could improve the experience of the festival grounds for everyone and save the festival money to be used on more great acts or reduced ticket prices.
At Fusion festival in Germany you pay an extra 10 or 15 € for the ticket and receive a refund token and a empty trash bag when you enter the festival. You can trade your refund token and a filled trash bag for the money at any point during the festival at designated trash centers around the festival.
The result: a festival that does not at any point resemble a tsunami struck refugee camp.
Costs: one trash bag and a piece of paper for each festival guest.
Savings: properly a lot of money, also this new hip thing called saving the environment.

Happy Roskilde Rusgilde to ya.

That is an excellent idea. The festival should seriously consider this!

Another thing to consider would be having a small deposit for every beer mug. Some people might still throw their mugs away, but others with less money will collect a hundred mugs, return them and then go and buy two cases of beer with that money.

I do believe this system is already in place. Or something similar at least. There are plenty of refund collectors at the festival.

I dont know if the system still exists but in the 90's they basically payed you to collect your trash. Its a lot dirtier nowdays so I guess they dont have that system anymore.

My guess is that the cost for cleaning up after the festival is closed is basically the same regardless of the amount of trash. The machines and personal is probably the biggest cost.

The last 2 years Ive stayed at GaT and there is zero trash there. Nothing. Im not going back to the ordinary camping areas again.
