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.

2012 was my first Roskilde festival. It was truly amazing. I am coming back in 2013 but this time I would also like to attend at least one other festival. Does anyone have suggestions on what festivals in Europe are the most similar to Roskilde?

I can think of Glastonbury, Melt, Werchter, Bestival, Isle of Man Festival, Pinkpop, Tomorrowlands and Sziget.

In US of A you will find Bonnaroo, Coachella, Lolapallooza (in Chicago so probably more like Primavere) and Sasquatch.


But if you fancy some electronic music i can highly recommend Balaton sound, right at the beach and its always sunny with temperatures around 30-40.

ok..werchter and pinkpop are nothing compared to RF. It is too small too crowded and it's only for 3 till 4 days. no cool parties at the camping area.. ehmm and i can go on and on icon_wink.gif

Further just find out for yoursel Glastonbury is sold out.

Thanks Bongo and Eff. That list was pretty good. I have looked into most of them and Like Eef said, some seem quite short.

Since I am coming from the US, I am looking for festivals in Europe. As I can't stay for over a month, I think I will just do Benicassim which is next to Barcelona or Balaton Sound per your recommendation.

I just wished that there were two Roskilde fesvtivals per year icon_smile.gif

If you or anyone else have any further suggestions I would love to hear them.

Sonar is a city festival that favour electronic music. I am sure it can be great
But it is in no way like Roskilde.. I guess it is a fareaways as you can get from what you get at Roskilde
