Tragic death last night at Roskilde

A 20-year-old Swedish man has died as a result of drug consumption.

A 20-year-old Swedish man died early Monday morning at Roskilde Festival 2012 as a result of drug consumption.

The 20-year-old man was brought to the festival's first-aid by some friends, as the 20-year-old didn’t feel well after having consumed drugs earlier the same day. He was taken to the hospital where his condition was critical and he died at 3:04.

According to the police, the 20-year-old has seemingly bought the drugs at the festival’s campsite. It’s still unknown which drug the 20-year-old has taken, but we believe that it’s a terrible case of so-called polluted drugs.

Unfortunately, there are many polluted drugs circulating in society, and Roskilde Festival reflects society in many ways. We ask all our guests to take care of themselves and each other. It is very important that you are aware of the fact that you can't trust any drug, and we recommend that you stay away from them.

Few other festival guests are hospitalized at the present time, presumably because of drug intoxication. The police are currently investigating whether these incidents are connected.

Roskilde Festival has a wide range of initiatives to ensure that you have the most secure festival. If you or your festival friends have problems or need help, you can do the following:

  • Contact the towers on site and camping area. They are open around the clock with service personnel ready to help.
  • Contact the outreach workers present at the campsite around the clock.
  • Contact the first-aids on site, open around the clock.
  • Contact first-aid at the festival's CITY centres, manned by trained doctors and nurses.
