ULTIMATE EURO WEEKEND
Roskilde Festival starts up on the following days after CPH PRO and is a good excuse to extend your stay. The festival is the Woodstock of Europe and only a 40-minute train ride from Copenhagen Skatepark. Located on the festival venue there is a 2000 sq. ft. concrete skate park with a smooth bowl and a good vert ramp. Three days before the Roskilde Festival begins (Monday – Wednesday) we are organizing some smaller skate comps and demos for the 80,000 people that camp out there all week. On Thursday the festival starts with a line up of over 200 bands, lasting over four days. We can offer free tickets to Roskilde to any pros interested in skating the Contests or Demos there. Please contact us for details.
