NON-FOOD TRADE AT ROSKILDE FESTIVAL 2014
Trade stalls are divided into food and non-food stalls, respectively. Here, you will find information about non-food stalls on Roskilde Festival as well as a link to download the application form for 2014 to the right.
Counting guests, staff, artists and media, more than 100,000 people participate on the festival, thus presenting a large customer base. And the average festival goer spends app. DKK 2,850.00 (besides the ticket price) during the festival on food, drinks and various non-food products.
Roskilde Festival would like our initiatives within environment, sustainable trade and humanitarian engagement to also be reflected in our collaborators, the stalls. At the same time, we also want to accommodate our guests’ wishes for many different types of stalls with as many interesting, fun and diverse goods as possible. Further, we want for our guests to be able to return to the stalls that they have come to know over the years and look forward to seeing again in 2014. All these criteria are important – as a whole and separately – when we select stalls at Roskilde Festival 2014.
As mentioned, we keep our focus on sustainable trade, therefore we are very interested in information regarding the sustainability of your products. Please mark this clearly in the application form, and please also elaborate why and how these products are sustainable. For example, if recycling is part of the production of your products, if the production of your products is conducted under approved conditions in a Third World country or if you have a Fair Trade certificate or the like.
All trade that includes copy goods is illegal at Roskilde Festival, just as in our surrounding environment. Besides the fact that this is against Danish law, it also conflicts with Roskilde Festival’s own regulations, as we want to offer our guests an honest product. Applicants who deal with copy goods will be rejected. Any trader dealing with copy goods at Roskilde Festival’s area will be immediately suspended and the stall will be shut down along with a notification to the police.

When you are offered a stall at the Roskilde Festival 2014 you will receive information about the trade area in which your stall is placed. The exact location of the stall will be informed only upon arrival at the Roskilde Festival’s Trade Office.
Please note that we cannot guarantee that your stall is placed in the area that you put down as a first priority in the application form, but we try to make everyone happy – taking the trade area into account and our evaluation of the stalls’ chance for sale.
Both while planning and during the Roskilde Festival, changes can happen. Not all measures and geographical conditions are known before the event takes place. This means that even if you have received a contract where the stall has been located, the festival reserves the right to relocate stalls up to 30 days before the first day of the festival. The stalls will only be relocated within the overall assigned area. This means relocation will only happen within the Camping Sites or within the Festival Site, respectively.
Any relocation will be notified in writing ASAP. Relocations between the overall areas (from Camping Site to Festival Site or visa versa) release a 20% deduction of the non-food stall price.
As Roskilde Festival wishes to provide as good and precise information to our traders as possible, we try to avoid relocations. However experience has shown that there is no festival without unforeseen incidents. This is why we wish to specify the policy in regards of relocation of the stalls.
All costs for establishing the stall are at the stall holders’ expense. Roskilde Festival does not supply any material, tents or the like for this.
To display the general expression of the Festival, the Festival would like to emphasize that all non-food stalls are to be equipped with a sign at the front of the stall. The sign should be big enough to identify the name of the stall from a reasonable distance.
The stall front is only allowed to display signs with the stall holder's own brand/name, which may be the same brand/name as the product range in the stall.
If the stall holder wishes to display brands/names on the front other than his own, the stall holder must pay a special branding fee of 25% of the stall price. The stall holder must have filled out in the application form if they wish to use other brands/names on the stall front.
If the stall holder still goes ahead and displays signs on the front with other brands/names than provided in the application form, an extra fee of DKK 5,000.00 must be paid in cash immediately at the festival on top of the branding fee on 25% of the stall price.
The application form is to be sent no later than 17 February 2014 by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to:
Att. Non Food Trade (application)
Response to your application is to be expected mid March 2014.
Please note that we need descriptions to the entire product range to be sold in your stall and that only products included in the product range description in the final contract are to be sold on the festival.
Further, it is important to include photos of the product range (and not photos of the stall) – regardless of previous participation in Roskilde Festival. Please keep the combined size of the photos below 10MB if sent by e-mail. Applications without photos will not be considered. References to photos on a homepage will not be accepted. Samples of the product range can be sent along with the application to the address mentioned above. Any photos and samples sent to Roskilde Festival by post will not be returned.
Applications received after 17 February 2014 will be read and considered but with significantly less chance of being offered a stall.
