Roskilde 2022: On the way home with a headache, feeling like the undead and longing for their bed!

It was great to be back, agreed the three parties we spoke to when they left the campsite this weekend.

They all selected different highlights, both on stage and at the festival in general.

Of those loved vibes they met during the rain, another dug the art.

But if there was one thing they completely agreed on: it’s how much they’ve missed their bed so much!

Has this year after the pandemic been different from other years?
The last time I went was in 2019 and it’s great to be back after a full three years without the festival. Fortunately, the mood has been largely the same as before the pandemic. I lived in C, where not much has changed, but one big difference is that most of the camping area has been reserved by people. Things were more organized and less chaotic. I actually like it – probably because I’ve also gotten older the last three years, so now I want to have more control over things.

What were your best musical experiences?
Haim was definitely the best. It completed my Roskilde when they played the last night. I had struggled all week to stand there on Saturday night – and luckily they delivered big time with a great concert.

What experiences outside of the music program stood out to you this year?
Camp Beast (The Beast) in Dream City has held big rave parties. And one day, when it was raining, we had to take refuge under some random pavilion, where we had to stay for hours. Luckily we were surrounded by good people and we just started partying together for the next four hours. It really was a moment that captured the essence of Roskilde.

What are you looking forward to when you go home?
First I want to take a long shower and then lie down in my bed, look at my computer and then sleep long.

Has this year after the pandemic been different from other years?
I have been here every year since 1988 except for the pandemic and it has been great to come back. The last few years I have felt that the music program has gotten worse and worse with all that pop. And it looked particularly bad this year, but I had already bought a ticket, so I decided to just leave anyway. But luckily everything has been perfect – and I will never again consider not going to Roskilde. The atmosphere has been good and positive – and there seem to be fewer of those hardcore camps with giant DJ towers competing to play each other out.

What were your best musical experiences?
I mostly just walked around between the concerts and saw a lot of actions I did not know in advance – and it was a super good experience that you can only really get at a festival like this. I was worried it would all pop up when I watched the actions, but everything ended really well. Sierra Ferrel stand out because they are people – and in that genre there are not many musical surprises, so the voices really have to stand out. And they did.

What experiences outside of the music program stood out to you this year?
Mostly just by chance encountering old friends out here. It always happens – and it feels great.

What are you looking forward to when you go home?
It will be a long trip to , but when I get there, I look forward to having wooden floors instead of soil under my feet – and my bed of course too.

Has this year after the pandemic been different from other years?
I chose a quieter, cleaner option this year, which has been great. Other than that, things are just as normal. I’ve been here for 13 years in a row, and by that time you know what’s going to happen. But even ‘normal’ is impressive after three years away.

What were your best musical experiences?
My last concert, Saturday Surfboard, was amazing. They had a great energy – it was punk and people made a mosh pit. Great end to a great festival year.

What experiences outside of the music program stand out to you this year?
For me, the art was great. Especially the play outside Gloria, where you can read a rape story of a rapist in a tent at Roskilde Festival. Many people walk past that area, but there were always a handful of people who read it and had a moment.

What are you looking forward to when you go home?
My bed. I have had a terrible sleeping pad that lost all its air during the night. So I had exactly 45 minutes to fall asleep before that happened. Luckily it does not happen with my bed.
