“Dua Lipa and Tyler, The Creator are exactly the artists who can create the euphoric and memorable Roskilde experience that we have missed for far too long. We know that the artists have missed their audiences throughout the lockdown, and with HAIM, St. Vincent and Arlo Parks among our first announcements, our 50th edition of the festival is on its way to become a very special occasion.”
Special ‘under 25’ ticket available
Only 5000 out of 80,000 tickets were refunded after Roskilde Festival was cancelled in 2021. These tickets go on sale on Thursday 14 October.
An additional 5000 tickets go on sale on 30 November as a special ‘Under 25‘ ticket that only gives access to young people under the age of 25 (born after 3 July 1997). The ‘Under 25’ ticket is an effort to make the festival experience available for young people who missed out on the opportunity to attend Roskilde Festival for the first time during the lockdown. 80 percent of the guests at Roskilde Festival have their debut when they are under 25 years of age.
Signe Lopdrup, Roskilde Festival’s CEO, says:
“We are very grateful that almost all ticket holders have held on to their tickets through two tough cancellations. At the same time, thousands missed a chance to meet up with their friends at Roskilde Festival for the first time. The ‘Under 25’ ticket is a way for Roskilde Festival to remain a special meeting place for young people in the difficult times after the corona crisis.”
