Good weather, great music and the best of vibes (plus totally non-profit!) – Roskilde is the festival we’re waiting for.
With the festival season kicking in hard, we’re going to be calling out our highlight festivals of the year, starting with Roskilde, the widely known annual community-orientated festival that’s 100% non-profit. With a killer line-up, you’d be mad to miss it.
This eight day festival runs from Sunday 30th June to Saturday 6th July. Note, the main headline acts perform from the 3rd July – 6th July, so these are the key days you don’t want to miss.
Roskilde is a Danish festival based in, you guessed it, Denmark!
Wednesday 3rd July: Bob Dylan With His Band, Cardi B, Christine And The Queens, Rosalía, Sheck Wes, Skepta, Tears For Fears and more.
Thursday 4th July: Travis Scott, MØ, Robert Plant And The Sensational Space Shifters, Jon Hopkins, Testament, Brockhampton and more.
Friday 5th July: Chance The Rapper, Robyn, Vampire Weekend, Underworld, Bring Me The Horizon, Johnny Marr, Death Crips, Jungle and more.
Saturday 6th July: The Cure, Janelle Monáe, Cypress Hill, Jorja Smith, Marina, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Catfish And The Bottlemen and more.
Roskilde is a 100% non-profit festival, but what does that actually mean? Well, after each festival, they donate everything they make to selected charities. How amazing is that? The festival has been doing this since 1972 and they’ve promised to keep doing it. Last year (2018), Roskilde made €2,572,989 – an amazing charity give out. For more information about how the festival’s non-profit aspect works, take a look here.
In short, very. From implementing a no-plastic straws policy to introducing new recyclable cups for all drinks, Roskilde has the environment at the forefront of their minds. Oh, and 90% of the food at the festival is organic – we can’t wait for this. For more on their sustainability movements, take a look here.
Naturally, Roskilde is a very high-demand festival. Full festival tickets have now sold out, but a limited number of individual day tickets are still up for grabs on their website. Why not make it a holiday with a day of festival fun?
