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.

Hiya everyone!! I signed up to volunteer but I also don't want to wait too long to get my ticket if they don't choose me... Does anyone know when they usually inform people?? And do you think it might be sold out by then? (I expect it to sell out faster than ever this year.)

Also, what general advice do you have for volunteering? Is it worth it? Could I be forced to miss the stones? There's absolutely no way in hell I'm missing the Rolling Stones (they are the main reason I'm going in the first place) and I definitely want to see the Arctic Monkeys too... Just wondering if it's a good idea for my first time at Roskilde! Thanks guys!

Don't know about how long you will have to wait to before you get an answer.But i know you might miss some bands. Someone has to work during the music, and that someone could be you.

If you work before or after the festival, setting up the stages, cleaning up afterwards, you will ofcourse not end up missing anything. But if you work during the festival, you probably have to work atleast one shift while the music is playing.

Most places try to make it possible for the workers to go to there prefered bands, but there is no guarantee you won't miss the Stones (since many of your coworkers probably want to go see them aswell).

So you might want to get a job before or after the festival - or rethink volunteering.

What Jim said. Plus, there usually the posibility for you to swap your working schedule with someone else in your volunteer organization, if you for example are scheduled to work thursday night.
