The Scandinavian festival giant: Roskilde 2021

Europe consists of a handful of festival giants. Roskilde is one of them. Year after year, the organization manages to book the world’s largest headliners. For its 50th edition, which obviously could not take place in 2020 and had to be postponed to 2021, the festival will once again pull out all the stops.

Roskilde always takes care of not only a massive line-up filled with stadium acts, but also a special camping experience. Of the eight days allocated for the festival, only four days are provided with a top-notch program. The other four are camping days, so that you have enough time to settle down and already enjoy those Roskilde vibes before the festival really starts. At the legendary festival campsite all visitors come together as one big community to celebrate a fantastic week in Denmark. A nice plus is that it’s allowed to bring your own food and drinks (including alcohol). However, it is also highly recommended to visit the Scandinavian craft beers bar!
