I’ve only been to Roskilde Festival once before, back in 2003, so it was good to be back! I’ll show you some snaps from the days we were there..
The designers: Me, Mette Marko and Soffi Mbenga
I worked as a designer for H&M at Roskilde, and in return I got my ticket. I worked all Thursday on opening day, and me and two other designers made accessories and t-shirts for the Swap Shop. Festival guest could come and swap their old (and dirty) clothing/accessories to new ones. The overlying theme for the H&M Reboot area was sustainability, and I think it came across pretty well.
Friday we attended the “Taste of Lolland-Falster” lunch at Roskilde. The ever handsome Rødder was cooking, and as always the food was beautiful and tasty! We has three courses, beer and dessert wine for only 110 kroner! This is a must if you attend Roskilde next year – and there are lots of other social dining experiences as well.
Did you attend Roskilde festival this year??
On a hot day a few weeks ago, I was invited to an event by Jabra involving new Jabra products, cool music and lovely food. I got to bring home a Jabra SOLEMATE (a blootooth transportable speaker) that I’m currently testing. I’ll give you a review later – but so far so good!
The event was held at Casa Magnifica that holds a rooftop terrace with this beautiful view of Copenhagen. Oh joy on a sunny day!
Sunday, we all drove up to Louisiana – Museum of Modern Art. Loooooved the Tara Donovan exhibition! Not so fond of Yoko Ono’s though, but this wish tree was pretty nice. I love the gardens at Louisiana, especially the Lake Garden.
Yesterday I dropped by Lidkoeb for a free (!) dinner and drinks event. Liquid Management served some impressive drinks with Monkey Shoulder whisky, Rødder made some delicious food and The Orgelheimers (Organ beat music!) sat the tone. Very cozy evening. I should really go out more on weekdays..

Saturday I was invited to Rødder’s staff-summer-party. If you’re not already familiar with Rødder, I can tell you it’s a Copenhagen based pop up dinner experience, run by three fantastic guys (who just happens to be marvellous cooks as well.) If you ever get the chance to participate in one of their pop up dinners, you should definitely do so. They make great food made from local products in season, and serve it with fine biodynamic wines – all at a very fair price. What’s not to like? Anyways, I’m lucky to have gotten to known these guys though my friend M, and to be invited for a dinner my taste buds won’t forget for a long time. If the pictures make you hungry, keep and eye out for the next Rødder event right here.
