2004 - ? This will be my 9th in a row
Been here since 1995, so I guess this'll be my 18th year in a row, which means that I've been here for more years in a row than many people at Roskilde has actually lived. I don't feel old though. I feel wise! 8)
Well - let's see ...

72,72,


So.. you invented a time machine only to experince 1972 at Roskilde twice, or were there any other reasons?
It was a damn good year - so I was there twice.
Pretty good idea with a timemachine to reexperience a couple of other years.
But maybe it was just my fingers out of control.

Definitely a shift in focus away from rock music. For good and for bad.


That wording almost makes it sound like punks = the gypsies of the 90's[*]... Frankly, I'm sorry to see any group of people go that made the festival a more diverse place. Whether it's subcultures or international guests. Both rather rare at Roskilde now - although the reasons for that aren't that hard to figure out.

"Shift in focus" would imply that there still is a focus...

[*] Yeah, there were Romanis at the festival then too. Most people just hadn't decided to hate on them yet.

had a bit of a scare after 07's poor weather, but the orange feeling pulled me back in :-D


Always wondered if anyone would go back if their first year was a mudfest. Glad to see it's possible. :-)


07 was my first rf, i loved it but haven't returned since mostly because i got my girl pregnant :)
but divorced now so returning first time since 2007, i go every time in Iceland to a similar but smaller festival i westmanislands :)

hope to have a great time this year me and my friend, just going the two of us so still looking for a good camp to join :) party on :)
This will be my 5th time there. sadly not in a row, stupid work!
cant wait, only 28 days remaining :)
Been to Roskilde 11 times. Not a lot compared to many of the regulars in here, but I feel it's a respectable number. Almost enough to consider myself a veteran?
Not very fond of the way the audience has changed the later years, but hopefully they'll be booking bands for a wider audience once again soon. Looks like audience's drug profile has changed to the worse with the music profile and the big techno party camps, from the green to more chemical partypills and shit.
Enough complaining... Anyways..Wasn't supposed to be going this year, but suddenly I won a couple of tickets, so now it looks like it will be Roskilde number 12 for me! I'll hopefully be a happy camper again in about a month's time. :)
This year will be my 22 time at Roskilde, every year since 1991. Things have changed alot in the camping area. We used to arrive at roskilde a couple of days before the festival opened and there was usually almost nobody there, in fact one year getting there 5 days before (maybe 6) we were one of the first. We got to drive our car to were we wanted our camp :-) Well, I spent my 20th festival staying at a hotel, and yes, I think thats the way to go for me! Hey, mo bones are aking!
Hopefully I will go to Roskilde for many years more, and I still think "what will I do when I can't go no more?"

Just walking towards the festival for the first time every year and I see the top of the Orange stage makes me feel great, I'm home!, and to see the duck on the top of the orange stage makes me sure that some people come back.

But seeing how people are leaving the area with all the trash and fires, makes me sad though.

RECYCLE!!!!

See you in 2012!!!

AND 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018.......

Vakkert, kjell!
I started in 1992 (I will never forget the dustcloud above the camping area :D) and I only missed 2002 and the last year.
2010 and 2011.
My first time was in 2001 but I went because my father worked at the festival and Aqua was playing their last concert so only for one day. But i've been at the festival 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and i'm going this year as well so it's gonna be my fifth real festival but sixth if you count 2001 as well :)
This will be my ninth in a row!
This year will be my 19th.
Started going in 1993, missed 2001 due to a great opportunity to work abroad for 3 months.
At least I went to see Ozzfest in Charlotte, NC that summer.

I feel my age when I arrive back home, but before and during the most parts of the festival you're a youngster again.
