You can’t say Roskilde without saying festival. At least not if you’re young, free-spirited and extraordinarily in love with your friends and music. At ArtRebels we are all of the above. And our love for Roskilde Festival has only grown stronger now that we’ve seen this year’s official t-shirt designed by a member of the audience.
More than 500 creative souls from the waves of people that inhabit Roskilde Festival each year sent in their suggestions as to how the new t-shirt should look. Now the winning design has been chosen and its creator is a 19-year-old Sidsel from the Denmark. Together with her three sisters, she has recently started the web-based company Elektronkanon.dk where she works primarily on graphics and sound assignments. She describes her design for the t-shirt as follows:
“One of the thoughts behind it is the idea that many individuals become one and instigate the way from thought and idea to action. The creative cravings of humans and the process of thought are very central, but often it takes more than one person to carry something out in reality. You need more hands than your own. As an individual you are often helpless without a community. To me, this drawing shows the condition in which you join together as a single organism and complete activities with the same goal.”
On the 19th of April the full line-up for Roskilde Festival will be announced at the Lineup Release party, and the t-shirt will be officially released that evening. In the Roskilde Festival spirit, we’ve got two of the t-shirts to give away! To enter simply send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us which band you hope to experience live at this year’s festival. Put ‘ROSKILDE’ in the subject header and remember to include your full name, address and t-shirt size. Entries close at midday on the 20th of April. Good luck!
