Roskilde Festival 2004 - Micellaneous #1
Ah...another year - another festival! Our bus left Oslo on Saturday at 16:00 and we had 8 hours ahead of us to kill. With red wine, music and stuff to read it would be no problem.
We also had a very amusing bus driver half of the trip. Imagine a Swedish guy with bad English knowlegde trying to be cool...I am pretty sure it's the same guy that told us the toilets only were for pissing last year. Anyway...we were curled up in our seats laughing as quietly as possible as he went on telling us how "to FLASH the toilets" and to "don't remember your luggage"...
He also managed to put on some awful music that made everyone turn off the overhead speakers...But we had brought our own "boom box" and lots of music so we could chill out in the backseat that we'd occupied. We arrived at CPH around midnight and missed the stores, so we decided to head straight for the festival by train. We got to ride in the nice doubledecker train and the conductor lady was nice and didn't charge us for 1st class.
Some ass drunk Swede further down the aisle managed to show his gratitude by pissing on the floor when the bottle he was trying to piss in got full. Arriving at Roskilde station we bought some food and then took a taxi out to the festival. When we got there, the real waiting started...And it was the worst by far. The place was already packed with people.
Thankfully it didn't rain, but the air was humid so it got really cold and we huddled together on the tarp under some blankets trying to keep eachother warm. Around 6 in the morning Terje and me went to the gas station to get warm and get some food. We were to enter the workers's gate at 8, so we moved our stuff to wait there.
After waiting and being pushed back and forth by incoming and outgoing cars we finally got through the worker's gate some time after 8. The others waited 3 - 5 hours in line to get in at the main gate. It's a disgrace!
The days before the festival started we went "sightseeing" all over the place to check out the artworks and activities of the year. We also went shopping in Roskilde City the day after the first big rainy day.
We bought brand new rubberboots to keep of the steady growing amount of mud at the festival area, we also had to buy some new clothes, warm socks and other practical things for the tent. With all our purchases done there was only one more thing we needed - a big bite of meat! So we went to a Grill and had spearribs and steak with onionrings and fries! Yummy! Then back to mud hell!
Our part of the camping area was still keeping up pretty well. No mud until the last two days. But not everyone was so lucky.
Large areas on East turned into mudholes or even lakes after several days with heavy rain. The "toilet truck" would empty the ones they could get to, but the entire place looked rather shitty I must say...
The rain also made it more diffucult for the festival to progress in it's regular speed. I usually take a trip on the concert area and backstage to grab something nice to eat and see how everything has turned out. This year there were no food and not much to see. Only a few days left till the opening and lots more to be done.
The grafitti artists had done mostpart of their work.
All along the "road" from Arena to Orange you could see plenty of different works on the grafittiwall. Everything from fantasy to politic comments and tributes.
Other art projects was in their final stages and just needed some finishing off.
Out on the camping other forms of art took place.
