  • 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.

My name is Øystein Kvanneid.
And since we run on nicknames in our camp, mine ended up as "Kvannabis"... go figure icon_razz.gif
And you'll find us in C-57, right next to the C-tower icon_smile.gif

Björk's concert '07 was great. It was first time I saw her and I didn't even notice the rain and coldness.
Also Roger Waters '06 was absolutely fantastic! The whole Roskilde '06 was great all that sun and lovely weather icon_smile.gif But I made much more friends in '07 (bad weather connects people (: )

My best Roskilde experience was in 2003 (I think so anyway...I'm not really sure, but it doesn't matter).

I was kinda bummed one night...me and my girlfriend had just broken up a month before Roskilde, and I had been pretty busy comforting myself with all kinds of girls, so I had made a promise to myself, that I wouldn't pick up any girls on the festival that year. I couldn't stand myself, using all these girls just because I felt bad.

I had lots of fun on the Festival, because I didn't have to think about scoring with the ladies, but I was still a bit sad because I missed my ex.

One of the first days I smoked waaaay to much funny tobacco and went to sleep for 4 hours. I woke up at midnight well rested, while everyone else in my camp was getting ready to go to sleep. "Boring bastards", I thought to myself and packed my pants, hoodie and jacket with beer bottles..."I'm going out to find a party!!".

Armed with 14 beers (biiiig pockets in my jacket) and the right attitude, I was on my way.

I was completely awake and sober, which is a rare occasion at midnight as you might already know, so walking around in the camping area was quite an experience. People were partying hard and I had no trouble finding fun people to join.

After running around for 4 hours talking to strangers about everything and nothing, I'm on my way home to the camp. 20 meters from the camp I find 15 people sitting on a paved road near the entrance on Easy, playing guitar and having fun.

I was a pretty amateurish guitarist back then (and maybe too aware of it), but I joined them hoping to get to play a song or two. They were incredible people, sweet and funny, and their guitarist spotted me looking at him playing, so he asked if I wanted to play.

I ended up playing for 2½ hours straight, while people were singing and partying. Others joined us and suddenly there were 25 people.

Considering my lack of confidence in my guitar playing skills, it was an enormous ego boost, that I could entertain a group of complete strangers, bringing everyone together to sing the songs, that I played.

Some of the girls in the group were sending me the "you can sleep in MY tent tonight"-eyes, but I stayed true to my promise to myself.

To top it all off...in the middle of playing a song, I was tapped on the shoulder and I looked back while still playing. Behind me stood two girls dancing, and when they saw me looking at them, they both shouted: "YOU ROCK!! YOU F*CKING ROCK!!" and danced even harder.

That was the first night in a month I had true fun without any of the other shit creeping up in my mind. And this is what Roskilde is all about: Making you forget about all your worries and just enjoying the moment that is right now. icon_smile.gif

My best experience at the festvial? Definitely 2001, meeting the love of my life and the man of my dreams! We hooked up on Monday, stayed in my tent forever and ever until the festival started and have been together since! Being in love in front of the Orange stage, holding hands and listening to the Cure - no words can describe that feeling, especially since I lost a very good friend at that spot in 2000. I felt I was really beginning to heal then.

We're hoping to get married on the Orange stage in 2011 - would be a nice way to commemorate it all!

my best moment...well one of the best:
Thursday, Social Distortion playing. I was pretty bad because the night before my bag was stolen with everything (except my cigarettes and LSD's) on it.
I wasenjoing the show, possitive thinking over all!!and at a time I needed a pause. I was sitting on the ground chatting with a couple of girls when I see a BIG spanish flag coming my way...
I stood up went right to the groupand..."Hello, are you Spanish?" lots of kisses, hugs and hurras came along!!!
I told them my "sad story" and the told me not to worry, with them, I could eat or drink as if what they had were mine...
The whole festival, every timethat I have found them was a lot of happiness..in fact, on Sunday after EOTDM I stayed with them insted of staying with my friends...

THE BEST GENTUZA EVER!!!!!!

There have actually been a couple of weddings at Roskilde already. Met the Finnish couple who were married on the Orange Stage a few years back, very laid back, super cool couple who've been going to the festival for ages! I think it was 2001 or 2002 that they were married on Orange and another couple were married on Green (= Arena).

I think it'd be a bloody blast to be married at the Festival.

Picking one single thing as your best experience is pretty much impossible, but if you don't count all the amazing concerts, i have a memory from this summer, 09, that I think shows true Roskilde spirit.

It was after the Lily Allen concert (saturday?), I was hanging out with some random guys I met at the concert when i discovered I'd lost my sweater that I earlier had had tied around my waist. I was kind of drunk (obviously) and I really loved that sweater so I decided that I simply had to find it! So, I went to all the lost-and-found-places (as if anybody would hand it in if they found it?) but found nothing. As I said, I was a bit drunk, so I started crying. heavily. At this point I was just walking around, but suddenly I was stopped by a girl who, without a word, gave me a HUGE hug. After a while, when I had sobbed into her shirt a little bit, she let me go and gave me a smile.

I felt a lot better and didn't really care about my sweater anymore, went back to my camp for a few more beers and then a great Deadmau5 concert.
Btw, I found my sweater the morning after, lying outside my tent... hehe

Well im not a good storyteller but in 2008 i meet alot of great friends from Canada, Australia, Norway and The Faroe Island and that is my best Roskilde memory.

Anthony from Australia even visited me after the festival before he returned home, we went to Beatday to see Sigur Ros and we also took him to Køge BK 's first game of the season ( a 3-0 defeat at home to FC Fredericia)

A Facebook group called I Love Anders is named after me and is created by some of the people i meet.

Well he did say that the grill sausage was the best he ever tasted so he got someting out of it.

And i must say that the horrible merger between Herfølge and Køge called HB Køge was not a reality yet and it was like a last minute plan because he suddenly just went back to Denmark on his eurotrip and i didn´t want to dissapoint him by saying no to his request of visiting me.


Regarding the FB group i really don´t know why they made it but i must have made a good impression at the festival.

Another great moment: the first time I realised that something like the Cathedral of silence excisted. Having a sit at a chair next to my friend and talking to a kind Christian person who washed my festival-feet and then walking inside and falling onto their mega "bean bags" (?). The only thing one could hear was the little water-sculpture, the rest of the world was blocked out by the tent.

It was a brilliant experience, and I urge everyone who have'nt tried it to do so icon_biggrin.gif


Does such a place really exist? icon_eek.gif Does anyone know where I could find this sanctuary of bliss?
