Nile : Esben RF......what will they do? the good mood patrols?
Esben RF : Creed is not coming to Europe in our period ... sorry
Esben RF : Nile -- yes exactly
Esben RF : We think about this that one beer stand is not enough
Esben RF : Our firepatrols work very good - I know it seems not of much - but we have had big test after the festival, where we tryed sticking fire to tent, and test have to shut the fires down afterwards - and its working very good

roskildica : About the burning, dont stop selling beers sunday night, then people will stay and drink instead!!
fredde : unfortunaltely I wasn't there last year... :(
Nile : Esben RF.....will there be "good mood" patrols at the camping site?

isager : have RF booked nice weather for the festival?
roskildica : will weezer be playing this year and what about Monster Magnet?
Esben RF : Cant confirm Donots ...
heyde : More firemen is a good start - two guys with a bucket of water isn't enough for 100m2

Esben RF : This tent burning sucks ... lets think how we can make it go away and party instead
heyde : What about Donots?
CampLover : What about the fires on sunday night. Some people are really frighten and go home before the evening. Something has to be done. Maybe its the one day tickets on sunday
Esben RF : Uni-radio er cool ... but they like to try the rumours ... we only publive the sure bands ...

Esben RF : It get pissed of also ... we have a group thinking alot on a solution - but we haven't found the great idea yet
laffer : and how many do you think will be sold this year??
isager : biggest problem with bottle collectors is that they raid your camp at night
Esben RF : Last year we sold aprox 65.000 all in all
heyde : I understand that - it's just really annoying...
Nile : is really annoying when the bottle collectors go with FLASHLIGHTS during a concert in the dark....that makes me quite pissed off
laffer : cool.. but how many was sold last year??¨
Esben RF : Bottlet collectors are people with tickets - they are not on behalf of the festival - tahts why it is so complicated
Norway_girl : but was it a problem before with a lot of glass and bottles all over the place?
sven3632 : on there are mor than 140 bands for RF02... are they call confirmed yet? seems so...
Norway_girl : bottlecollectors- some of them are really rude, because they stand next to you waiting for you to finish your beer!!
Esben RF : Laffer - double as last year at this time ... so looking gooooodddd
System : Creed logged in at 18:34
heyde : There shouldn't as many, and they shouldn't be allowed to collect stuff during the concerts
Esben RF : Erykah ... I like

Nile : Esben....its a hard question.....what do you think about the bottle collectors?
RF2002 : how is the share so far between tickets sold in Denmark and tickets sold in the rest of europe?
Esben RF : What would you suggest concerning the bottle collectors ...
fredde : has bands said no to come to Roskilde due to the accident in 2000?
heyde : Do something about the bottle collectors
Esben RF : Its not a question of turning down - morely a problem of timeschedule, planning, tour puzzle and so on
roskildica : More rock, no R 'n B....please !!
Nile : Esben......I miss the GUINNESS beer on the festival.....=)
ollie_holland : will more bands from Holland to perform at Roskilde this year?
