Roskilde Festival Radio's Legendary Naked Run


Here are several shot of the traditional naked run at the Roskilde music festival in Denmark. As you might already know, the Danish like to do everything in the nude. The "Naked Run" held during the annual Roskilde Festival is not just for fun though. Both the male and female winner get a free pair of tickets to following year's festival. Price for each ticket run about 1785 Danish kroner or 353.80 U.S. dollars so it might be worth the effort if you are really into music festivals and a bit cheap. Anyway, Danish exhibitionist Cristiane Petersen is the most recent female winner of the naked run. In the video she is being interviews about her fantastic performance, I don't understand a work but everyone is naked and not a bit sky. Not really interested in what the male winner had to say so no vid of that... Watch the video and click on pictures to enlarge.

Roskilde Festival is held south of Roskilde in Denmark and is one of the five biggest annual rock music festivals in Europe (the other four being the Sziget Festival, the Glastonbury Festival, the Paleo Festival and Rock Werchter). It was created in 1971 by two high school students, Mogens Sandfær and Jesper Switzer Møller, and promoter Carl Fischer. In 1972, the festival was taken over by the Roskilde Foundation, which has since run the festival as a non-profit organisation for development and support of music, culture and humanism.

It is Denmark's first real music-oriented festival, originally for hippies but today it covers more of the mainstream youth from Scandinavia and the rest of Europe. Roskilde Festival 2007 had more than 180 performing bands and gathered around 80,000 people paying for the concerts, with more than 21,000 volunteers, 5,000 media people and 3,000 artists — which means almost 110,000 people participated in the festival.

Traditionally the campsite opens the last Sunday of June, which gives the festival guests plenty of time to settle down and "warm up". The festival officially starts the following Thursday at the Animal Showgrounds (in recent years simply known as the "Festival Site") and lasts for 4 days.

Until the mid-1990s the festival attracted mostly Scandinavians, but in recent years it has become more and more international (with an especially large influx of Germans, Australians and British). A Scandinavian alternative remained in the Midtfyns Festival, until that closed in 2004 following declining ticket sales.
