If things seemed pretty quiet around Roskilde on Sunday, you were obviously in the wrong place at the wrong time. If you thought it your original idea to go and watch Denmark play Croatia at the festival, you were fooled, fool!

When our photographer Elke Numeyer-Windshuttle arrived at the scene of Denmark’s football match with Croatia, festival-goers had turned into a sea of red and white flags, everyone trying to find space between tents to stand, jump, scream, and eventually cry. What began as one of the highest intensity matches of the year, resulted in a disappointing slow-motion exodus of defeat. Luckily we had Denmark’s spectacular 11pm sunset to guide us back to camp, with our tails between our legs.
