There are many rock festivals around the world but in terms of history, amount of performances, the level of the lineup, and number of participants, Roskilde Festival held in the suburbs of Copenhagen is the one that rivals Glastonbury Festival, considered to be the largest in the world. This festival, which begins on the last Thursday of June and runs for 8 days, began in 1973 and is known to attract over 100 thousand visitors each year. Director Ulrik Wivel filmed for 8 years to document the Roskilde chronicles featuring the likes of Sonic Youth, Rufus Wainwright and Placebo.
Ulrik Wivel has educated as ballet dancer at the Royal Theatre of Denmark and danced at the Royal Ballet of Denmark, The National Ballet of Canada and New York City Ballet. In 1998 he has since then worked in the film industry. Ulrik Wivel made his debut as director with the documentary film Danser. Besides Roskilde he released the film Come Back in 2008 which was first feature film.
