Each year Roskilde Festival Charity Society selects an artist who collaborates on picking a project or an organisation, that will receive a donation of DKK 1.5 million from Roskilde Festival Charity Society. Roskilde Festival could gladly announce that the main act, Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band wanted to take part in choosing who should receive the money.

The choice fell on Caritas Denmark, which is the Danish part of one of the world’s largest humanitarian organisations with sister organisations in more than 167 countries. In Denmark Caritas helps socially marginalised people and internationally they work with development and relief aid.

- We are very honoured that Bruce Springsteen has chosen Caritas Denmark as the recipient of DKK 1.5 million from Roskilde Festival. We would like to say many thanks to the festival and to this year’s festivalgoers for this great gift, says general secretary, Jann Sjursen, who was handed the check by Bruce Springsteen just before The Boss went on stage to play for an expectant audience.
