The early campers at Roskilde haven’t had the sunniest start to their festival experience. However, according to the meteorological institute DMI, by the time the music starts it will be a scorcher, Metroxpress reports.

Frank Nielsen, a meteorologist at DMI, told the newspaper that Tuesday will be warm and sunny and by Wednesday it will be veritably hot.

Will get hotter and hotter
“Once we’ve got Monday out of the way – we’ll have some clouds and small showers in the morning – it will clear up and be a beautiful week, during which it will get hotter and hotter,” he said.

“Wednesday will be dry and sunny again and now 20-25 degrees, so we can locally get a really good summer’s day. There will be a very light breeze, so it will be a fantastically good day.”

By Thursday the thermometer will have reached 27 degrees and by Saturday it will be a sweltering 32 degrees. Nielsen said that night temperatures will also be suitable for campers at Roskilde.

“It won’t be a problem to lie in a tent this week and keep warm during the night,” he said.

“We’ll have night temperatures of about 15 degrees. We have been at about eight to ten degrees recently.”
