Blasts from the Past: Roskilde 2008 part II

Did you enjoy the 31 pictures from Roskilde Festival 2008 that was posted two days ago?

If so, get ready for some more pleasurable scrolling: Here’s the second round of digital memories from the same festival, and be warned: Things are becoming messier.

Oh, but first: warm up with the warmup-scroll –> the 31 Blasts from the Past: Roskilde 2008 part I.

Okay, you’re ready:

Things start out reasonably enough.

But they quickly deteriorate.

People try to find the meaning of life at the bottom of their plastic cups.

Kristian gets a glimpse of the brutal vastness of the universe through the Total Perspective Vortex device and feels horrible. Then the Playground beer kicks back in and he forgets all about it. (The Total Perspective Vortex can be found on the planet Frogstar B if anyone feels like giving it a go).

Chriszka the Time Traveller escapes from Media City and meets Julian at random morning party amongst the tents.

The next day, my brother explains something important to a skeptical accountant.

AP throws a well-known handsign (see this post for details –> https://chriszka.com/2016/12/13/how-to-be-a-junglist-the-hand-horn-special/) and adds the t-shirt communication on top. No need for talking at all. Very junglist!

The all-important deciding-where-to-go-next-situation.

More hand signs. Don’t miss the hand Horn Special, it’s pretty essential.

Okay, so Keanu Reeves totally entered my life in 2008, and I only realize now, eight and a half years later. GOD DAMN IT! Come back and ask for directions, Keanu!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Ah, this is what happened. Sneaky people with friendly faces made some evil magical brew, handed it out to innocent passers-by and erased everyone’s brains. That is so mean.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And the sun started to set on people and their mainstream t-shirts.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

BAM! -darkness again. We’re back in the lounge.

Kalle B does some babyfacin’ here. Nicka, on the contrary, looks exactly the same in this moment as he did 8 years before this and 8 years after. How is this possible? I shall reveal nothing; any time traveller’s secret is safe with me.

Hello, random hot festival service guy.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

DJ Buda decides to teach the Stella Polaris crew a thing or two.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And people go semi-bananas.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The sun rises and some people give up.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

But when the going gets tough THE TOUGH GET GOING.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It isn’t easy, but someone has to do it: The festival vibe must continue.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For a moment, a slight glimpse of the horrors of the Total Perspective Vortex enters Kristian’s brain once again.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Fortunately, he forgets all about it once again a second later.

Jkamata arrives from another dimension.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Everyone’s still putting on their brave faces.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If we sit at this magical table long enough, everyone will turn up eventually.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

See what I mean? Here’s Sofus the Amazing Shape-Shifter.

After some rest, everyone’s relaxed and ready for round 12.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A group of junglists show up for Slayer.

Nico Defrost takes a small nap while stocking up on the beers.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And here we go again.

Goodbye, Roskilde, that was sunny!
