A greener music festival in Roskilde

The European Environment Agency (EEA) is teaming up with Roskilde Festival to give thousands of music fans visiting Denmark this week relevant, up-to-date information about Europe's environment.The Roskilde Festival is northern Europe's biggest music event, drawing 100 000 visitors from around the world and bringing together some of the world's leading rock, pop, soul, R&B, electronic and hip hop artists.

Concert-goers at  the four-day event this year will have the opportunity to gain extra knowledge of environmental issues related to food, transport, tourism, water, waste and climate change. Roskilde Festival will be a showcase for 'event greening' — easing the burden of mass gatherings on our environment.

Based in Copenhagen, the EEA helps achieve significant and measurable improvement of Europe's environment by providing timely, targeted, relevant and reliable information to policy-makers and the public.

The festival organisers are encouraging participants to use public transportation to get to Roskilde, to minimise waste production during the festival but also to reduce their impact on the environment beyond the festival by drawing focus to several green messages.
