Quick guide for the search

  • 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.

Before we could show up on Friday or Saturday, and the fences would be knocked down soon after. But now I hear we can only show up to camp/start partying on Sunday? Is this true? When did this change? What day/time do most people show up?

It's true.

However, camp opening at Saturday has only been a Roskilde thing for four years (2010-2013).

In 2009, the camp opened Sunday morning officially, but the fences were toppled already Saturday evening, much to the dismay of our camp who were leaving to queue the night between Saturday and Sunday. We rushed, only to find that all available spots were taken, and we had to wait until a designated "Green" area of the campsite was opened up to the public around 16:00 Sunday afternoon. It sucked.

However, since the opening this year isn't until 18 Sunday, I expect most people to show up during the day to queue. The worst case scenario is that most people will show up already Saturday evening and fuck the fences over.

So there is a chance the fences will come down on Saturday instead of Sunday? Since they did last year? When do they give out the bands? I do not want to show up on Sunday and not have a decent place to camp as a result.

For me it's all a bit confusing now. Last year the fences were brought down half an hour before the planned opening so it wasn't as bad as earlier years. But this year with the "new" opening time it might go back to being how it was before with the fences going down very early.
Hopefully the festival have something smart in store for us because I absolutely hate it when the fences are toppled. All planning goes straight out the window then.
As of now it's really anyone's guess regarding what's going to happen. The major worry for me is that people have that extra day to show up early. Whereas most people had to go to work/school/whatever on the Friday before the opening last year.
