This summer, Victory had once again the pleasure to work with the legendary Roskilde Festival
Roskilde Festival Summer 2023
At long last, the doors swung wide open for a full-blown celebration at this year’s Roskilde Festival. After a year marked by a pause due to the pandemic,
Therefore, it was extra exciting this year, as Victory has entered into a long-term agreement with Roskilde Festival to be their sound supplier for all stages.
The collaboration entails providing top-notch audio systems from the renowned manufacturer Meyer Sound, complete light setup with video walls for the main stage, Orange, as well as full stage setup, ground support, and lighting for the Avalon stage, and more.
In total, Roskilde Festival has 7 stages of varying sizes, each with their own unique design, there was no doubt that our warehouse was bustling in preparation for this year’s event.
Of course, a dedicated and skilled team is essential for making it all possible! Alongside our passionate employees, we’re grateful to have a fantastic freelance team always ready to give their best.
We haven’t tallied the kilometers of cable used yet, but we’ll get there. The numerous trucks loaded with audio gear amounted to a staggering 14 trailers, while the lights, video, and support equipment totaled 9 trailers.
To most, these numbers might not mean much, but believe us – creating an unforgettable experience for 130.000 festival-goers requires much more than just a single lamp or speaker.
This year, we introduced the cutting-edge Panther speakers, launched in 2022, so there was no doubt that all the experience we’ve gained around Europe was a good thing when it came time to pass the final test at Roskilde.
In the coming months, we’ll be reevaluating our power consumption, cable management, and optimizing wherever possible, to further enhance our commitment to sustainability.
