My name is Donna, I'm planning a trip to Europe from Australia this year
and I want to kick it off by going to Roskilde.
My problem though is that I'm going alone and I'm a little
nervous. Is there anyone else who is going alone and perhaps
wants some company? Or a group of people who want to meet up?
I'm very exci and to meet as many new people as I can.
Also is there anyone who has been alone before? I would
love to hear your experiences
As you might have picked up in similar threads across the forum (I've seen you have posted in other threads as well) this site is quite dead at the moment. However, it will get more busy as we approach the festival. So if you're very keen on sorting out a group to meet up/camp with right now you might want to try making a post on the Facebook page
as well. Sadly, it seems Roskilde are intent on not updating
these forums in order to make them more functional.
Now I've never been to Roskilde alone myself but most people will let you get a bit of room for your tent in their camp if you ask nicely. Almost everyone are able to communicate in English as well so the language shouldn't be a problem. Be open and speak to whoever you feel like speaking to.
Alternatively (and if you want to save some money) you could sign up to be a volunteer. You'll get the ticket and some food and drink coupons for an amount of work (24 or 32 hours). And then you'll obviously get to meet the people you're going to work with. Personally, I'm not volunteering as Roskilde is usually my only vacation but some people really enjoy it (this depends a lot on what type of work you're doing, I believe).
Best of luck
