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.

Hi! We are 5 norwegian boys who are going to Roskilde for the first time, so we wonder where it's best to camp, or like what is the difference between them? We are travelling by car.

None of the regular camping areas are better or worse than the others but in general, the closer to the stages and the festival site you get, the more mayhem and the wilder the parties. If you want peace and quiet in the evening go for some of the farthest areas from the stages – in particular Agora J which is usually the Silent & Clean area. Agoras C, G and L are usually the loudest and rowdiest, but you also need to get there early. Be in the queue when the festival opens Sunday or you have to camp further away.

Thank you for the answer! How early do you think we need to be there?

That of course depends on where you want to camp. If you want to camp in the C, G or L areas, I'd say arrive early Sunday morning at the latest to get in the very front of the queue. I camp in the E or F areas with my camp which is usually much quieter. However, these areas also fill up quick due to their proximity close to the stages. We usually arrive at the West entrance around noon.

I have only been twice but I think it also depends on age. West seems a little older than East and the quiet areas seem to host the older "kids". Yet, you will find that I am just talking averages (and perhaps just my impression) as you will find a very diverse crowd anywhere you go.

I have camped in H and C and had very, very different festival experiences, so do your research but don't have expectations. Where you end up maybe opposite of what you wanted. it will depend on how committed you are, if you want to camp on the popular areas like C you will have to show up early and hope the entrance plan goes as planned... or show up late and hope that everyone jumps the fence (which is illegal).

In general, the popular areas are fun but also crowded, taking a shower at the wrong time can take a good chunk of your day and the bathrooms can get messy (clean in festival terms means there shit all over but it is not overflowing). Also, I realized that a quiet area wasn't necessary to sleep as by the third day you will be so drunk and tired, it will not matter.
