Roskilde Festival is the largest music festival in Northern Europe – attracting audiences from all over Europe and the rest of the world. It is an independent, non-profit festival organised by The Roskilde Festival Charity Society. Roskilde Festival presents a progressive music programme as well as lots of events, art and activities. Approximately 175 bands play at the festival. The camping areas open onSaturday preceding the festival with upcoming acts playing the smaller stages Rising and Countdown and many activities during the days up to Wednesday. An extensive environmental programme is implemented each year including a refund system. All profits from the festival are donated to humanitarian, cultural and non-profit projects that benefit people all over the world. The festival is located on the Festival Site, outside the town of Roskilde, 35 km from Copenhagen. Musicians representing all conceivable genres, from all over the world, play minimum one-hour sets on the smaller stages and often 90-minutes sets on the biggest stages. The long sets make the Roskilde Festival music experience fundamentally different from most competing festivals in Europe.
