  • 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.

This year we'll create a festival that gets wilder day by day – throughout a total of 8 days. Read about some of the new initiatives we're working on for Roskilde Festival 2013.

Since 2005, we have divided the festival experience into two distinct parts – four days of warm-up followed by four music days with full throttle on the stages. Never mind that in 2013. We drop the idea of ​​warm-up. When we start, we start, and we build up – step by step – towards the wildest climax.

We call it an eight-day experience ladder that leads to a greater festival, peaking when the music's playing on all stages between Thursday and Sunday.

This means that you don't have to be late for anything – even if you start higher up the ladder.


Any idea what this means (maybe the original Danish text is more clear)?

The Danish text is pretty much the same. No clear details. Would really like to know what it means.

It basically means that the notion of 'warm-up' is out, and instead we see it as ONE FULL festival experience. And the idea is that you can jump the train any time without being late for anything. Of course, being here for the whole thing is always what we recommend.

Does this mean the main music program will be spread out over the 8/9 days? I can't imagine that really.

Although, I think it is a good idea to present the festival as one whole and no longer as warm-up/music. This still seems to be confusing to new/foreign visitors according to many forum posts at least.

I still read it as if all of the stages are only active Thur-Sun, and that the Apollo Countdown/Pavilion Junior stages are active Sun-Wed:

According to the statement the music is only playing on all stages on thursday to sunday, which I read like Coldblooded as only Apollo and Junior are open for the first days. But unless the festival area is open every day (which seems unlikely) I don't see what the actual change is from 2012. They could put in more events on warm-up days (not a fan of that since it would mean less focus on music), but I can't see how there can't be a big difference from the warm-up days to the festival days in a music festival.
