The Stage Design of Apollo Will Be Otherworldly and Unique

Roskilde Festival’s new electronic stage has found its shape. With its futuristic, cocoon-like appearance Apollo is unlike anything, Roskilde (or any other festival) has featured before.

Apollo, Roskilde Festival’s new electronic stage, is ready.

Apollo is inflatable, the colour orange and with an otherworldly, cocoon-like appearance, so that people might mistake it for some kind of UFO or mirage at the first encounter. Visuals and specially designed helium balloons will be an integrated part of the experience as soon as the music commences.

Drawn in Berlin, sown in Barcelona

Apollo’s design has been tendered at six studios as well as the usual suppliers of light and sound. The internationally acclaimed, Berlin-based studio p was chosen. In close interaction with Roskilde Festival they thought out the unique construction. Área Cúbica situated on the outskirts of Barcelona has sown the stage which we will receive in Roskilde shortly. 

During our warm-up days from 1 to 4 July we present Nordic, electronic artists at the stage – during this period we have named the stage Apollo Countdown.
