Today, the Roskilde Festival, serving about 100.000 people during one week, depends on conventional water supply from the Roskilde municipality. However, this is a major stress to the Roskilde water supply and leads to insufficient water delivery at the festival. In an attempt to become self-sufficient of water at the Roskilde Festival, the lake in the camping area is introduced as primary water resource. A public domain water distribution software is used to model the hydraulic behavior of the water distribution systems in order to optimize the sustainability of this novel approach. The system is thought to be implemented in combination with existing technologies for local treatment of surface water and waste water. The outlook of this project is to prepare a general water supply scheme which can be applied at other similar temporary “mega-events”.
