Fiftieth edition of Roskilde festival canceled due to coronavirus | NOW


The Danish festival Roskilde, which is scheduled to start on Saturday June 27, has been canceled. Due to Danish measures regarding the coronavirus, the fiftieth edition of the festival cannot take place this summer, the organization reports Monday. Taylor Swift, The Strokes, Kendrick Lamar and Thom Yorke, among others, would play at the festival.

“We are devastated,” said a statement. “Although we were afraid this would happen, we hoped it wouldn’t end that way. However, the risk of becoming infected with the coronavirus is too great when many people are together, and that consideration is by far the most important. “

According to the organization, the fiftieth edition would be a special one. “We should celebrate the festival’s origins and look forward to the future. It should have been a celebration of art, community and the drive to make a difference. A celebration of everything we so badly need and seek in this unbearable times. “

“We were looking forward to celebrating it with you. Together we crossed our fingers and held our breath hoping that the situation would change for the better and that we would meet each other this summer. Unfortunately, it shouldn’t be. “

The fiftieth edition is now being postponed to 2021. People who have bought a ticket can keep it for next year, or get a refund. The organization will report on this at a later time.
