Hi,

Does anybody now if the trains from the festival site to Hovedbanegården CPH run all night during the festival? Thinking of maybe taking a night at a hotel in town this year...

There's a night bus from East entrance that goes every hour in the warm up and every half hour during the music days.

I strongly suggest taking that. It's cheaper (about DKK60) and it's non-stop from East to Copenhagen Central Station and then it goes to Town Hall Square for the return trip, so it's a lot less of a hassle than taking the train. i just wish there was a equivalent service during the day time.

EDIT: I just surprised you didn't know about it with that many RFs under your belt. It's been there since 1999 IIRC.

Thank you! I have never left the camping during the night before, so it has not been relevant :)

Fair point. Since I learned about the service I try to do as much of my travelling to and from the festival using the night bus as possible because when you live in central Copenhagen it is just so much easier and hassle free.

I´m curious to see how it works out with 2 out of 4 tracks closed between Roskilde and Høje Taastrup for maintenance.

For the night trains back to Copenhagen there will be no problems but I´m guessing the trains from Copenhagen to Roskilde will more jam packed than usual.

That I can understand. My decision is a result of last years fiasco where I just broke down and left the festival on saturday (hence missing out Paul Mccartney etc). So this year I am taking a hotel break one night to avoid that happening again. Seems like age is catching up with me. On saturday there is really nothing I want to see before a date at Dizzy Mizz Lizzy (never heard them before) at 17, so guess going in after the concerts on friday is optimal.

The night bus is 80 kroner this year.
