Signe Lopdrup, CEO of the festival, said in the press release regarding the cancellation of the event: “We are devastated. So far, although we feared that this would happen, we hoped that it would not end there. However, the risk of infection with the COVID-19 virus is too great when many people come together, and this consideration is by far the most important thing. ”

At the Roskilde Festival, Taylor Swift , Deftones , Kendrick Lamar , Faith No More , Tyler, The Creator , The Strokes , Haim and many more should appear.

But the failure of the open air is not just a slap in the face for music fans. The festival regularly donates its winnings so that it has hardly any reserves. Because behind the Roskilde is a non-profit organization that annually gathers money for charitable initiatives. In 2020, the focus should be on supporting children and young adults. They cannot get the support from the festival as planned.

Lopdrup explains: “Our ambitions were sky high. We all worked hard […]. We are facing an extremely serious situation, but the consequences go far beyond us. Artists, volunteer societies, cultural partners, companies and organizations that operate the various stands, serve the festival guests, secure production and supply or contribute to the festival program; they will all be badly affected. Many of them are already suffering from the current situation. ”Read the original
