Roskilde is home to Europe’s premier rock festival. The Roskilde ‘O7 line-up included The Who, Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Bjork, Queens of the Stone Age, My Chemical Romance, CSS, Mastadon, Muse, Klaxons, The Sounds, LCD Soundsystem, Arcade Fire, The Arctic Monkeys, Basement Jaxx, Dizzie Rascal, The Killers and Justice to name but a very few. It also hosted some of the wettest conditions Denmark has seen in 100, years making it a complete wash out. Thankfully, unlike hundreds of our co-festivelers, our tent didn’t wash away in a river or get completely submerged in a lake so we managed to party until the final day. Unfortunately the weather would also hamper the collection of international graffiti artists the festival organisers had gathered to paint there miles of hording. Between the 20 hour showers however there was a just enough time for some fairly impressive murals to pop up all over the venu.
