There is an innner cirle infront of the stage and as far as I know they run seperate lines for the different acts on the day. Not sure about it since Thursday is when they open and there's usually a big rush Thursday when they open at 5pm. So I'm not sure you can sit in line for Stones from Thursday morning like you can the other days for other bands.

Hope someone with more experience can share more.

There's a paved area in the very front of the orange stage that will take just a certain amount of people to avoid crowding. There's a traffic light that will show red if it's full. This was built after the Pearl Jam concert in 2000 when 9 people were trampled to death.

This area however is open for everyone until it's full.

Here's how the pit system usually works out:

There's separate queue entrances for the left/right side of the pit, so decide in advance which one you want to go in. You can't move between sides once inside, but you can move between the front/rear pits.

The gates to the main festival site (ie. where all the stages are) opens thursday at 5 pm., and there's almost guaranteed to be one concert before the Stones (possibly two), so the organisers will create a formal queue for the Stones concert (and the other, if it's a sufficiently big name). This will be marked with a sign and red/white striped police tape and it should be open form 5 pm onwards. There's usually no formal system in place to keep your place in the queue, but if you're more than one queueing together, there's usually no problem in one stepping out for a couple of minutes to go to the toilet, buy food/drinks, etc.

The pits are cleared between concerts, and once the crowd safety people have removed debris, they let in people for the next concert. Depending on how many bands are performing, it can be a lengthy wait in the pits, and as mentioned above, it's a paved surface inside them. There's a couple of toilets in the pits, but not much else (though they did experiment with having vendors walk around at one time).

Oh, and a bit of trivia: The main (Orange/Canopy) stage was originally a Stones tour tent (used at Knebworth '76), which the Roskilde Festival management purchased in 1978. It's been upgraded and replaced entirely since then (most recently in 2001 IIRC), but it's still the same shape and it remains the logo of the festival. They did, however, ditch the "tongue" grinning smiley

Last year they sold 5000 day-tickets for each of the four days with music, and around 75.000 tickets for the full festival.

Orange Stage Roskilde
Posted by: maradona ()

In some newspaper articles I read that Roskilde's Orange Stage was actually built for the Stones in the 1970s. Is that correct or could anybody provide further information, please? I can hardly imagine the stage they will play on in July is more than 40 years old - it actually looks very modern to me. Are there any pictures of the band using the Orange Stage in the 70s?

There's a couple of pictures from the Knebworth Faire here:
[www.ukrockfestivals.com]
[www.ukrockfestivals.com]

The Stones played at night, so most film and photos are close-ups that doesn't show much of the canopy.

The canopy was created by Bill Harkin (who was also involved in creating Glastonbury's Pyramid stage) for the Stones' 1976 European Tour. It was allegedly used by others in 1977, and then bought by the Roskilde Festival in 1978. The canopy was replaced in 1983 and at the same time some minor modifications were made (mainly adding the steel arch in front, which allowed more light & sound to be added).

The whole stage are replaced in 2001, as it was no longer adequate for modern touring productions, and for security reasons.

Roskilde is exactly a month away today.

This might become my last time seeing the stones and my first time seeing them at a festival site.

I have never been to Roskilde before, so my question to any locals is how to reach the festival best for the stones when arriving CPH around 18.00?

the greatest rock and roll band in the world - definitely
