All volunteers are allowed to bring their children under the age of 10 to the festival free of charge. Children over the age of 5 must wear a wristband, which is handed out in Check-In.

If your child is between the ages of 10 to 14, you can purchase a wristband. The price is 400 DKK per child.

The wristband is put on when the child arrives at Check-In accompanied by a parent. Any payment is also handled here.

Remember to bring the child’s yellow health insurance card to Check-In.

Young people, from the age of 15, must buy a Full festival ticket (if tickets are not sold out). It is not possible to exchange a ticket for a volunteer wristband.

Children of volunteers under the age of 15 must always be in the company of an adult.

Please note that there are special rules for passionate volunteers and for children of professionals. Read below for a complete overview.

You must always show your volunteer wristband when passing through a gate. If you’re driving through a gate, you must come to a complete stop and show your wristband.

Enhanced check of wristbands at gates

At times, your wristband will be scanned at our gates. We do this to ensure that you have access to the area.

In addition, we scan wristbands to keep track of how many people are in our areas at any given time. This helps us keep the festival safe. 

We may also physically check your wristband by pulling on it to ensure that it is still attached properly. If that is not the case, you will be directed to Check-In to get it fixed.

Please note that, subject to Danish law, it is not allowed to re-sell tickets at a higher price than its face value. Therefore, it is not allowed to re-sell one’s Roskilde Festival volunteer wristband, as this is given without charge and is as such without value.

In most cases, a wristband is a prerequisite for your ability to perform your volunteer effort during the festival and must not be mistaken for salary.
