Roskilde Festival 2000
Parts of the gang went down to RF on "Säfflebussen". It looks like the lot is getting in the mood. Can't remember which day this is, but I think it's Monday before the festival starts
After putting in quite an effort to make the perfect camp (with very good help from Thomas I've heard) Fist Camp stood ready for many days and night of rocking and partying.
Thomas climbed to the top of the pyramid that was build on the area and took some great shots of the Festival area before the festival started. This is Club Roskilde and Tech scene. To the left you can see the entrance where the chatgang gathered on Thursday for the chatmeeting.
Tech scene and the Yellow Scene furter back.
Here you can see Orange scene. Looks weird with no people on the field or what?
This is the view towards White scene and Green scene way back there. To the right in the picture you can see a pretty crowded Camping East.
The chatmeeting has started. At first we stood over by the brigde to try to find all the new ones and we were soon quite a bunch so we moved over to the gras by gate 10.
We were quite a lot of people, and the 99 - gang was soon onto old habits, like Dark Grief singing Spanish lovesongs. Angel looks like she wants strangle him. The rest of us are just happygolucky.
Old buddies meet again. Last time Fredde and Darkie met was at the Madrugada concert party back in Nov' 99.
After gathering everyone on the gras it's beer time. A couple of people collected in money and went of to buy some beer. So here we are after a while doing what we like best - chatting and drinking beer. Cheers ZapArt!!!
Personal Jesus is making new aquaintances (I can let you in on the fact that these two chatters now are living together). And he is as charming as ever.
The weather was just perfect for the chatmeeting, sunny and warm. This is Harvest! He just had the most amazing language skills I've ever heard. The education in Switzerland must be good.
Everyone is busy talking to old friends and new friends, and the gates will soon open so the area is filling up with people eager to get in and start the festival.
This is from Friday. We are on our second concert of the day - Kent. Earlier I saw Morten Abel and the guys saw Sahara Hotnights. It was really good and it was a brilliant start of what we thought would be the best concert night ever. Later on we were gonna see Pearl Jam and The Cure
The partymood is at it's best and we are ready to rock on all night long.
The Pearl Jam concert has just started and as the darkness falls and the great music of one of my favorite bands fills the air we are all thinking that this is the time of our lives. After only 5 songs, "Daughter" being the last, the sound is cut and the time of 8 lives are over. Later the 9th life expires in a hospital. Rest in peace guys.
And this is the sad sight that meets us the day after. Police tape and photographers from newspapers, policedepartment etc. Coming back here to see a concert seems like a very distant thought.
A lot of the concerts on the festival was cancelled and we didn't much feel like going either, so we spent the time in fistcamp. Here we could talk, cry, sing and take care of eachother. Some of us were in better shape than others, but just to be with friends what was we all wanted.
And we kept on singing
Some crazy Danes that come to the festival every year and that always have an outstanding camp. This year it's an absolute brilliant replica of the Orange scene. They are even playing music from the speakers on the poles.
We are hanging out in Fistcamp, and Fredde is showing us what a real Fister is all about.
Lots of people came to our camp. Some of them just strolled in because they heard the music, so the musicians changed quite often. People brought their guitars or drums or just their voices and from that came an eternal concert going on all day and night.
The morning has broken and people are still about their drinking and talking and singing in the Fistcamp. This is around 7 or 8 in the morning and Benny and I finally go back to our camp which is (or feels like) miles away from the Fistcamp. It actually was a 30 minute walk or something.
After listening to all the singing outside the tent, Thomas couldn't sleep anymore and got up. The guy to the left is a young Dane who were playing guitar and rapping in Danish. We had left by then, but everyone says it's the coolest thing they've ever heard. And I think this picture really captures what the Roskilde festival is. Right on Thomas!
Some more young Danes. We met these guys on our way home to the camp. The guy to the left is maked-up like a cat. So we called him catboy. And when we asked if we could take a picture of them in their cool saggerpants....catboy just as well pulled his pants all the way down!
This is the Henry Rollins concert at orange stage. Later we also saw D:A:D. But we didn't stay for long. Benny and me took a stroll to the pyramid and later on to the backstage where we saw the crowd at Orange from the tower. All those lighters and everyone singing "It's after midnight and Disneyland is closed...." Still makes my eyes water.
The pyramid of painted doors. It was really cool and in the late evening sun it stood out beautifully to the darkening sky. So many doors, so many cool paintings. I never went up in it thought - bummer.
Fires in the night. I was not feeling very comfortable with all the fires that were burning around the camping area the last night. Lots of tents were trashed and burned, and I hardly slept a minute in fear of someone setting our tent on fire. I honestly wish they would stop this tradition.
