This LCA-based study estimates the environmental impacts of the activities happening on the Roskilde Festival’s site during its 8 day length. The purpose is to prioritize policies and mitigation actions. The system boundaries include: audience transportation; accommodation, food and water consumption; electricity and fuel consumption; waste management. The impact assessment was carried out according to the EDIP method. The results revealed that main contributors to all impact categories are the transportation of festival goers and the food consumption. Subsequently action to reduce the impacts of the festival is best focused on influencing behavioral change rather than investing in technical solutions.
