The largest Scandinavian festival of the season, Roskilde Festival, welcomed 180 artists from all around the world; and 130.000 guests in all ages enjoyed music, the wet Danish weather and discussed topics like gender inequality, strengthened security in todays world of terror and not at least the parents of teens who suddenly found themself in a national shitstorm. Roskilde is a cultural hotspot for experiences and creative inspiration – and indeed much more than just a music festival.
Photographer Lasse Bak Mejlvang spent a wet and muddy night at Roskilde with his pocket analogue camera. Here is his story.
“I love to watch the fine mist of the night come on,
The windows and the stars illumined, one by one,
The rivers of dark smoke pour upward lazily,
And the moon rise and turn them silver. I shall see
The springs, the summers, and the autumns slowly pass;
And when old Winter puts his blank face to the glass,
I shall close all my shutters, pull the curtains tight,
And build me stately palaces by candlelight.”
