EUR 2.64 million profit from Roskilde Festival 2011
Roskilde Festival 2011 resulted in the second-best economic performance in the festival's history. All profits are now donated to charity.

Approximately 2.64 million euro is the result from the sold-out Roskilde Festival in 2011. That’s the second best economic performance in the festival's history - only surpassed by the festival in 2009 when the results arrived at 2.74 million euro.

This very satisfactory result comes after a sold-out and successful festival with over 120,000 participants. The festival did, however, experience increased costs for clean-up and restoration of the festival area after heavy rain on Saturday evening during the festival.

"It’s fantastic that our 30,000 volunteers are able to generate such a great profit, making Roskilde Festival able to make a difference for other people through our donations," says Steen Jørgensen, chairman of Roskilde Festival Charity Society.

Roskilde Festival Charity Society organises the annual Roskilde Festival with the aim of supporting humanitarian and cultural initiatives. Because of its VAT exemption, Roskilde Festival cannot spend its profits on upcoming festivals or other investments.

All proceeds will be donated to charity before the festival in 2012.

Through the years Roskilde Festival Charity Society has distributed more than 23 million euro million to charity.
