Building the Apollo Stage at Roskilde
Only a few weeks before Roskilde Festival starts there is only a big field. But with help from the many volunteer’s fences, stages and much more get in to place and all the festivalgoers can have 8 spectacular days of festival.
Denmark.dk meet with Ib Valentin, who has helped set up on of the five stages – The Apollo Stage. He says it takes 25 guys more then 100 hundred hours each to set up the stage, but all the volunteer work also pays off. Because if you put in more then 100 hours, you get a shed to sleep in instead of a tent, and also running water and other luxuries the other volunteers that don’t work as much don’t get.
This isn’t the first time Ib Valentin has volunteered a Roskilde Festival, but he really like the privileges that comes with working more then 100 hours.
The Apollo stage opens before the other stages a the festival, so before the real music area is open the Apollo stage has bands playing on it.
