A hosted forum could also easily be transferred to a new volunteer if needed (or Roskilde Festival could keep control if they pay the bill and appoint a volunteer administrator to run the forum).
Roskilde don´t want to run it. If they want to do what you say, I pretty sure they would just as ask me to keep on been the volunteer admin of the forum on another platform
I get where your coming from, but Roskilde don’t want to run a forum.
