Roskilde Festival 2021 Is Cancelled Due to COVID-19

On a typical year, 130,000 music fans descend on the site, about 20 miles west of the capital, Copenhagen. This, however, is the second successive year Roskilde has had to cancel due to COVID-19.

The latest development is “very serious for the festival,” for the Roskilde Festival Charity, the organization behind the fest, “and for our community,” the statement continues.

“We will work extra hard to make room for art, volunteering and new cultural experiences in the time to come,” say organizers. “But first we must digest this sad announcement. Then we will be back.”

Ticketholders can transfer their stubs for the 2022 event, or get a refund.

Denmark’s population of about 5.8 million has reported more than 254,000 cases of infection and 2,491 COVID-related deaths, according to updating research published by Johns Hopkins University. Currently, just 11% of the population is fully vaccinated.
