Anyone can ride their bike in the Camping Area and on Darupvej without a bike permit.

In general, bikes are not allowed on the Inner Area when the area is open to participants. However, special cases may require the need to bring a bike to the Inner Area – and only in these cases is a bike permit issued.

You need a bike permit, if you must bring your bike to the Inner Area between Wednesday 3 July at 16:00 and Sunday 7 July at 08:00 – except in the service hours between 04:00 and 10:00.

You can apply for at bike permit with your supervisor. The application must then be approved by your Division Management. Note, that you must have a special reason for bringing your bike on to the Inner Area to get the permission.

A bike permit is a wristband that must be attached to the bike, and it can be collected at Check-in.

Without a bike permit, it will still be possible to bring a bike:

  • from Darupvej to Camping East - east and west of Inner Area
  • through Gate 14 to Gate 10 behind Apollo and Pavilion.
  • through Gate 3(A) to Gate 41 behind Volunteers’ Village and Sovebyen

We recommend everyone to use public transport, or to go by bike, when going to the festival. It is better for the environment, and we prefer to use the parking areas for better camping facilities.

However, we understand that some people need to come by car, and for that purpose, we have set up several parking lots in connection with Roskilde Festival.

Parking for volunteers

There are two large parking lots for cars – EAST and WEST (they are divided into two zones: W and WY).

As a volunteer, you can park your vehicle on the parking lots for volunteers. This is free of charge and all you need to do is to show your volunteer wristband at the entrance. The areas are located by W, EY and WY.

W is for short term parking while you are on shift, while EY and WY are for long term parking. There is a 15-minute walk from the parking area to the festival.

If you want to park somewhere else, you can buy a parking spot in the paid parking areas on equal terms with paying festivalgoers.

See map of the parking areas


Opening hours for parking areas

W (short-term parking), WY (long-term parking) and EY (long-term parking):

Saturday 29 June at 07:00 to Sunday 7 July at 12:00.


Parking in general

There is no surveillance in the areas, so make sure your insurance covers any damage or theft.

It is not allowed to sleep in the car.

Use of open fire, gas burner or other heat sources in the areas is not permitted.


Restricted Parking for volunteers with special parking needs
