  • 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.

With only three weeks to the festival, it will not be long before the festival site begins to take shape. There is probably already a lot of preparations going on. Previous years, there have been websites such as Roskilde.laf.dk and www.kraglund.net/fk/ros/ with pictures from the preparations before the festival starts. But both websites are no longer updated.

So now I ask you guys: Have any of you locals been at the festival site recently so you can provide us with a update on how it looks out there right now?

The annual Roskilde Livestock show which is held at the Roskilde Festival site, just ended today so nothing is in place yet.

Many thanks. It looks a little wet in places. I hope it will clear up the coming weeks.

We snapped this the day before yesterday ..

Not much preparation to be seen, but it does show that it's been raining cats and dogs in the area for the past week or so. We're hoping that's just the "Emptying out the reserves before Roskilde"-rain

That's interesting stuff, thanks. Seems strange to see that so much ex-gravel pit area is now grassy and ready for camping (although if there's a chance of rain, I'd avoid it at all costs as it looks water-logged to me!).

Check the TV-clips from TV2 Lorry from the annual animal show held on the festival ground. Taken just last week.
Pretty hard to recognize the place.

Never mind, most of those clips were from 2008. icon_smile.gif

My gallery is updated with 42 pictures from friday.

http://picasaweb.google.com/brian.albertsen/RoskildeFestivalSite
starting from http://picasaweb.google.com/brian.albertsen/RoskildeFestivalSite#5484249829387196674
this time in full resolution

Agora H is not on the west side of the lake as on the map.
There is a new shallow pool on the festival site and thes a new tunnel under the road that separates the GaT and caravan camping sites from the rest of the site

I might include Camping area P in the next tour

Thank you Brian for the pics! Without your comments I would have had no idea where the pictures were taken icon_wink.gif

I wonder what the Tuborg pool will be used for.

All the pictures are GPS tagged so you might want to click show map in the lower right corner and switch to satellite view.

The satellite images are a couple of years old and it's easy to see that the gravelpit has moved north from area H

Seriously, if we get rain this year, that pool is going to cause a flood! icon_eek.gif

I had no idea they started this early with the preparation, but looking through these pictures I can really understand why. So much work to do!

Do they really fill the beach by the swimming lake with new sand every year??

The put some fresh sand on top of the old. I don't think they remove the sand after the festival.

Today sunday the site is buzzing with activity.
The camping area must be complete first.
Work in the festival area will continue until 5 minutes before the gates open on Thursday.

13 more pictures from today.
