Roskilde Festival 2017 is sold out


All 80,000 full festival tickets for the Danish non-profit festival have been sold. There is a limited number of one-day tickets left.


Saturday 24 June marks the opening of the 47th Roskilde Festival. A celebration of community, art and music for eight full days in the temporary big city.


A limited number of one-day tickets are left for Wednesday 28 June and Thursday 29 June.


Roskilde Festival spokeswoman Christina Bilde says:


"It's an amazing feeling to have a sold out festival once again. We can't wait to welcome the thousands of guests, and we're happy that 80,000 festival-goers have chosen the full experience. They will be part of a very special community for eight full days. The ticket sales are also a positive indication that we can once again expect a healthy profit to be donated in full to charity after the festival."


The tickets have been sold in 82 countries, and 15 % of the tickets have been sold outside of Denmark.


The full festival experience includes 180 concerts on nine difference stages, art projects, culinary delights and an abundance of activities, parties and communities.


Roskilde Festival has been sold out in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2016.


Few one-day tickets left

For those still interested in tasting the festival atmosphere and seeing acts such as The Weeknd, Solange, Justice, The XX and many more, there are still a few one-day tickets left for Wednesday 28 June and Thursday 29 June.


One-day tickets for Friday 30 June and Saturday 1 July are sold out.


Beware of tickets sold on the black market
After all full festival tickets have sold out, tickets start popping up on unofficial channels - often at a much higher price. Stolen or lost tickets will be made invalid. This may result in crooks trying to sell tickets that are, in fact, invalid. If you are interesting in buying or selling tickets, we strongly encourage everyone to do so through the festival's own ticket website.


Roskilde Festival cannot check whether tickets purchased through unofficial channels are valid or not. Roskilde Festival encourages anyone interested in buying one-day tickets to do so from an official retailer before they are sold out. Or wait until next year.

  • Roskilde Festival 2017 takes place from 24 June - 1 July.
