The festival has now started. You’ve stopped blading, and started running around, as you try to catch as many live acts as possible. None of them have disappointed you so far, as every artist seem to be giving their best to Roskilde. You had an amazing time, obviously. Be it dancing like crazy to Trentemoller, bouncing your head to the Southern tunes of Outkast, or simply listening to great music all over the place, you lost yourself in the sound.

You found yourself, too. Reached an emotional state where some forgotten truth could emerge from the Darkside. Memories of a girl you once loved brought back by a Warpaint song. Tears of joy thinking of friends you dearly love still during the Lykke Li concert. And once done reflecting on the past, Future Islands got you excited for what is yet to come. You felt happy, and really glad, with Damon Albarn and surprise guest De La Soul.
After seeing The Rolling Stones play on Thursday night, you can’t help but draw a parallel with Roskilde. A clear reflection of the past. The greatness of it. What it has brought to you, and what you’ve learned from your experience. How it’s made you. But also a bright look into the future. A reminder of all the great things to come. The experiences still to be had, the lessons yet to be learned. A smile on your face and some hip moves can get you far in life. Mick Jagger and Roskilde both taught you that.
