Below we have gathered useful information that helps you get the most out of Roskilde Festival. Here you can find information on everything from first aid and timetables to bottle refunds and parking.
Remember: You can always get answers at the Audience Information Office.
ACCESS & WRISTBANDS
Your wristband gives you access to the festival areas, so take good care of it. If your wristband is damaged or broken, contact one of the ticket offices at entrance East, West or the festival train station (see map), where the situation will be assessed. If your wristband is stolen you must immediately report the theft to the police and then bring a copy of the police report to the nearest ticket office where the situation will be assessed. Stolen wristbands are usually not replaced by Roskilde Festival. Instead you should contact your home or travel insurance provider for information about replacement of stolen wristbands.
Anyone caught without a wristband at the festival area will be liable to pay a fee of DKK 3,500. When the fee is paid you will be offered a ticket without any additional charge if the festival is not sold out. [to the top]
When you turn 15 you are old enough to explore Roskilde Festival on your own, but please remember that Roskilde Festival is one big city where everybody is partying all the time, so it is a good idea for you and your friends to stick together.
If you want to bring your kids along, tickets can (only) be purchased at the entrance. See Tickets for more info. Please note that it is illegal to serve alcohol to anyone under the age of 18 in Denmark.
If you've turned 65 years we offer you free access to the festival on Sunday 6 July from 08:00. This is for everyone, no matter where you're from. Please bring photo ID - from this we will register name and address and give you a valid wristband. Expect some waiting hours - many people want in Sunday and everyone over 65 years have to be registered manually. [to the top]
The agoras are the squares and meeting places of the different neighbourhoods in the camping area.

DRINKS ON THE FESTIVAL SITE
You are allowed to bring one drink of your own choosing onto the main festival site in a container of up to 0.5 litres.

There are no requirements regarding spacing of tents on the campsite, but the fire authorities require that there be at least 3 metres between caravans. Caravans will be escorted into place by a service attendant. All fire access routes must be kept completely clear from items and equipment such as tents, guy lines and rubbish. The fire authorities must be able to move around unhindered.
In areas with many people camping close together open fire is dangerous, and therefore no open fire is allowed on the camping areas. This includes campfires, torches, candles, camping stoves and barbeques. All cooking must be done at the cooking islands by the agoras. Here you’ll also find a communal barbeque.
There are cooking islands at the agoras where you can use camping stoves, disposable grills, the communal grill or the communal campfire spot. Service attendants will guide you in the use of the cooking islands.

SILENT & CLEAN AREA
Silent & Clean by Agora J in Camping East is for those of you who wish to stay in an area that is kept cleaner and where there are no noisy parties and loud music constantly. The area will be under supervision and everybody is encouraged to help each other make sure the area is a nice place to be. Music cannot be played in the Silent & Clean area from 22:00 – 10:00.
This year we also have camping areas called Clean, which will be kept even cleaner. The clean areas are situated at the areas B & K and also in the areas Get A Tent and Get A Place. In these areas there will be increased focus on waste disposal, and everyone is encouraged to help each other make the area a nicer and cleaner place to be. Please note that the Clean areas are not silent.
CITYcentre EAST AND WEST
CITYcentres are located at camping East and camping West (See map). The CITYcentres are the shopping streets and market squares of the festival city and house a variety of services and exciting activities that make the CITYcentres worth a visit. Here you’ll find an agora, ATMs, merchandise sellers, first aid station, beer sales, refund stalls and food stalls. At the CITYcentres chosen stalls are open around the clock from Sunday 29 June at 18:00 until Monday 7 July at 12:00. [to the top]

A cloakroom for small items is situated in the information office by Gate 10 on the road ‘Along the Railroad’.[to the top]
You can buy condoms at the pharmacy and the kiosks. [to the top]
We prefer to keep advertising at a minimum at the campsite. So please don’t bring any flyers to the site (they just end up as trash on the ground), and please don’t accept sponsored goods from any companies for your parties. Commercial stuff is done best through us – that way we can ensure that it offers better opportunities or service for you, and it helps keep the ticket price low. [to the top]
At the cloakrooms at CITYcentre East and West cooler bricks can be exchanged free of charge. [to the top]
All stalls receive other currencies than Danish kroner (EUR, NOK, SEK, GBP, USD), and many stalls accept credit/debit cards. You can get cash back during a purchase if the stall has sufficient cash available (only applies to Dankort transactions). The maximum amount for such a withdrawal is 500 DKK and you can only withdraw bank notes. Change is only given in Danish kroner. [to the top]
During the festival wheelchair users have the possibility to watch concerts from platforms placed near the stages and they have first priority here. Parking and toilet facilities for the disabled can also be found by the stages.
At Ryttergården located in Hall 45 you can get help with minor repairs of assistive technology, have a cosy chat with others, or perhaps have a well-earned rest if you are not living or camping nearby. The volunteers at Ryttergården can also be of assistance with further information on possibilities and facilities for disabled people on the festival.

Out of respect for the nine young men who lost their lives on 30 June 2000 at Roskilde Festival and their relatives, the festival established a memorial in 2001 at the western border of the audience area of Orange Stage.

GENERAL PARKING RULES
You are not permitted to sleep in your car
You may not use open fire, gas stoves or other sources of heat in the parking areas
There is no surveillance in the parking areas, and your own insurance policy must cover any damage or theft. Roskilde Festival recommends that everyone uses public transportation or rides their bike. It’s better for the environment and means that we can use the areas for camping instead.
All parking areas are open around the clock from Saturday 28 June at 15:00 until Monday 7 July at 15:00. See map of the parking areas
PAYING FOR PARKING

There is room for 1250 cars and the charge is DKK 365 per car when you buy a ticket in advance purchase and DKK 400 per car when paying on site. The payment covers parking in the area for the whole festival period. There is a similar parking area near Entrance West with room for 1,600 cars. A token for display in the window of your car is given and will allow you access to parking area you have paid for.
Bicycle parking can be found by Entrance East. Bicycle parking is free. [to the top]
Loads of people are staying at the campsite, and to ensure space for everyone we ask you not to take up too much space with pavilions. A rule of thumb is one pavilion (3x3 metres) per 20 inhabitants in the camp. [to the top]

NO OPEN FIRE
The combination of nylon tents and open fire is extremely dangerous, which is why it is important that you do not light any fire in your camp – neither during the festival nor when you’re leaving. The ban on open fire also includes torches, candles, hurricane lanterns, cooking devices and barbecues – including disposable barbecues.
At every agora you’ll find a fire ring, a cooking island and a communal barbecue you can use if you want to grill sausages, make soup or simply heat a meal. Please remember that it is absolutely life threatening to light a gas burner in your tent, likewise it is not allowed to burn your tent, containers or other objects when you leave the festival.
IF YOU NEED HELP
If you need help during the festival you can address the campsite service attendants in orange vests. Furthermore at all agoras service attendants are ready to help you, and keep an eye on the camping area.
If you’re in need of medical assistance at Roskilde Festival, please use the festival’s own first aid stations. The emergency room at Roskilde Hospital requires you to contact them in advance on (+45) 7015 0708. In case of accidents or life threatening emergencies, call 112 or use the 112-app, which can track your position and make it easier for the ambulance service to find you.
SAFETY AT THE STAGES
Being at a concert should never be boring, but it shouldn’t be dangerous either. Therefore, there are a number of safety requirements and precautions at all the stages at Roskilde Festival that we ask you to follow. For the sake of you and your friends.
TAKE CARE OF THOSE AROUND YOU
The safety at Roskilde Festival is continually evaluated to remove and reduce risks. We closely follow and participate in national and international developments in the safety field, but we still need your help to ensure that you and everybody around you gets the best and most safe concert experience possible.
Please help us with the following:
- Pay attention to – and follow – the safety information presented on the big screens at the stages and the guidelines from the crowd safety staff in the orange vests.
- Pay attention to friends and people around you.
- If you need help, or see others who do, please address the crowd safety staff.
- Make sure to sleep, eat, and drink so that your body is supplied with rest and energy. If you feel unwell, or see someone else who seems to need help, address the festival staff.
PROTECT YOUR EARS
You won’t get much out of Roskilde Festival if you can’t hear anything. If you experience a ringing or a buzzing in your ears you have to be careful – it’s a serious danger signal. Therefore – buy a set of earplugs. They can be found in all kiosks, drink stalls and merchandise stalls and cost 10 DKK.
The pit systems in front of Orange stage and Arena are safety constructions that make the concert experience safe for those of you who would like to be right in front of the stage. Show up early at the concerts since there is limited amount of space in the pit systems and many who would like to get in there. The pit system entrances are located at both sides of the Orange stage and in the east side of Arena. The green and red lights at the entrance tell you if there is free space available or if it’s full. You can’t stay in the pit between concerts since they have to be cleared and cleaned.
Staying in the pit systems during concerts can be a very intense and physical experience. We ask that you only stay in there if you feel completely safe at all times.
- Crowd surf. Crowd surfing is very dangerous. Nobody likes your shoe in their face, and you might fall down or be trampled at worst. Crowd surfing is strictly forbidden at all stages and can cause immediate expulsion from the festival.
- Form human chains. You put others at risk by creating unrest in the crowd.
- Run or push to get in front. You create waves in the crowd and increase the risk of someone falling or getting crushed
- Sit on the shoulders of somebody. You risk getting hurt, and it ruins the concert experience for others.
Cold showers are free of charge and can be found at Agora C and L. Hot showers are also found at Agora C and L as well as at G/H and P, Get A Tent East, and at Caravan Camping (see map). Hot showers are 25 DKK.
OPENING HOURS FOR HOT SHOWERS

Dive into our very own swimming lake in Relax City by Agora K. There is free access to the lake for all festival participants as long as you’re not intoxicated. There will be life guards present. Remember that Mother Nature – unlike your own mother – doesn’t like soap and shampoo so please only use these in the showers and not in the lake. [to the top]
Unfortunately, there are thieves at Roskilde Festival, especially in the camping area, so we encourage you to take extra good care of your valuables and use the free cloakrooms at the agoras. Lock your tent with a padlock so your neighbours can keep an eye on it.
You can report any stolen property at politi.dk.This also includes stolen wristbands. If you have an iPhone, remember to download the Find My iPhone app. It will help the police track down your phone if stolen. For Android users, we recommend Prey, which offers a similar service. Download at preyproject.com. [to the top]

From Sunday 29 June guides at Roskilde Station will help you board the correct busses or trains to the festival site.
Taxi stands are established near the bus stands next to the East and West entrances and by Gate 16, Darupvej. We encourage everybody not to use pirate taxis.
It’s getting easier to get rid of your trash! This year every Agora has its own new Trash Station where you can sort and dispose your trash. Between 9:00 – 16:00 Trash Station guards help you sort your trash correctly. Look for the Trash Station symbol. You can also deliver your trash to the Festival’s orange trash trucks, which you will encounter in the camping area. They drive around collecting trash all day long. Ask the guards for garbage bags.

WASTE AND THE ENVIRONMENT
PASS IT ON – DONATE YOUR CAMPING GEAR
Let others benefit from your old camping gear, when you leave the festival. This year, you’re again able to donate your tent, sleeping mats, unopened canned food etc. to homeless and those in need. Deliver your equipment Throughout the week at the Trash Stations in agoras B, E, C, G, K, L, N, and P (See map).
Do you want to live cleaner and greener? Then pitch your tent in one of the Clean Areas B, K and J. As always, Area J is “Clean & Silent”, B and K are “regular” areas where you can party as loud as you want – but where everyone helps in keeping the area clean and comfortable. The Clean Areas are for those of you who want to take part in keeping your camping area nice. It is for you who prefer grass to broken glass, and you who would rather dispose of your garbage than sit in it.
CLEAN OUT LOUD
If you are visiting Area E this year, you will experience that it is not just the Festival’s most festive area, but also one of the cleanest. This area is the home of Clean Out Loud. Throughout the last four years Clean Out Loud has worked to change the trash culture on Roskilde Festival through community, festive trash parades and creative events. [to the top]
