Most stages have podiums to make sure that wheelchair users have a chance to be at the same level as the rest of the audience.

If you are not comfortable standing close in big groups, we recommend that you familiarise yourself with the individual stages’ podiums, sitting installations, audience density, location of big screens and sound conditions. The hosts in front of the stages are there to help.

We cannot reserve a spot on the podium for individual concerts.

We recommend that you arrive in plenty of time to secure a spot, so that you can get the best possible experience at the concert.

If you have special needs, you can bring one companion or carer with you to Roskilde Festival free of charge.

You and your companion must arrive at Roskilde Festival together. 

You can change companions throughout the festival – so when one companion leaves the area, another can enter and take over. When changing, your companion must hand in their wristband and state their name at one of our ticket offices. Your next companion can then pick up the wristband at the same ticket office.

As documentation for your needs, you must show one of the following:

  • A companion card issued by Danish Disability Organizations
  • Or on of the following equivalent foreign card:

If you do not have such a card but still believe you are eligible to bring a companion to Roskilde Festival free of charge, please write to accessibility@roskilde-festival.dk.

 

Access for your companion;

If you are a guest, you need to purchase a "Disabled with Companion" ticket from Ticketmaster. These tickets are available for both full festival passes and single-day passes. If you have already purchased a regular ticket, Ticketmaster can assist you in exchanging it for a "Disabled with Companion" ticket.

At Roskilde Festival, we are a diverse community of partygoers and campers, and it is important that we take care of each other and respect our different needs and ways of experiencing the festival. The Sunflower Ribbon is a way to raise awareness of some of these differences. It is a tool to signal that someone has an invisible disability or impairment. The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower – or simply the Sunflower ribbon – has a plastic pocket where a brief description can be placed.

Anyone can use the the Sunflower. It does not grant any special privileges but is used to indicate when someone may need extra support.

So when you see a Sunflower, you know that this person may benefit from being approached with:

  • Extra patience or a little more time
  • Extra help and support

You can get the Sunflower lanyard at Soft Spots, First Aid Station and in Handicamp.
