Tuesday night the members of Roskilde Festival Charity Society approved the accounts at the annual general meeting. Now a profit of DKK 17.5 million (approx. EUR 2.3 million) will be donated to charity.
It was a proud board that Tuesday night could present the second best financial result in the history of Roskilde Festival Charity Society.
DKK 17.5 million (approx. EUR 2.3 million) is the result from the sunny and sold-out Roskilde Festival in 2010.
Roskilde Festival Charity Society organises the annual Roskilde Festival with the purpose of supporting humanitarian and cultural initiatives. The board will now start donating the profit from 2010, which due to the festival's VAT exemption must be done before the execution of Roskilde Festival in 2011.
All credit to the volunteers
"Our 28,000 volunteers have made a completely indescribable effort to put together a great festival. It's because of them that Roskilde Festival exists and that we can now donate this much money to charity," says Steen Jørgensen, chairman of Roskilde Festival Charity Society.
Through the years Roskilde Festival Charity Society has generated approx. 20.1 million euro to charity.
