We can look up the dictionary definition of consent, but what does it mean for us personally — as living, breathing sex-having humans? The music is over, but the conversation continues. Consent at Roskilde Festival. Have we made any progress?
And the more people are aware, the more people know how to recognise this kind of behaviour — at least in theory. Which is why we wanted to continue the conversation, get more ideas out there and keep the momentum going. Still, it is a difficult topic. The silences. That there are a few little rules, simple ones, that people should start living by at Roskilde and definitely also every other day of their lives.
We decided a good place to start our discussion was to define these vague, jargon-like terms that are being thrown around the conversation so nonchalantly. Namely: Consent.
What does it actually mean? So what does consent mean on a more anecdotal level? For real people with real feelings and real sexual experiences? We walked around Roskilde Festival and posed one question to the masses: How do you personally define consent?

Here are the answers, thoughts and stories we were very lucky to have heard, along with the people who were awesome enough to share them:. So many grey areas. Alcohol plays a huge part. So then it becomes like, when does this person actually want this and when does the person feel pressured? Especially at Roskilde. In terms of Roskilde, people are more open minded down here. And people can easily mix up the als they get from the girls.
We spoke about it on Wednesday actually — we were at a concert, and there were these two girls in front of us just in bras. You get confused, you know?
Especially here in the heat. Nikoline: Yes… well no. Then the other person needs to stop. Pia: Nope. It really is. You probably also need to take into consideration how drunk she is.
Lasse: First and foremost: respect. That is the most important word. There are many people who come here with different views and different everything, but I think the word everyone can agree on is respect.
That counts for sex but also generally at this festival. Respect for each other. Proper gentlemen can feel that kind of thing. And you might be thinking: I am someone different than I was last week when I was at work. And then you come home with bad experiences, and ruin [the festival] for everyone. The most important thing, in my eyes, is that the person is in the right mindset to give consent. The most important thing is that you should always be able to say no.
So it gets hard in those situations. You just need to be a good person.
Sara: Yeah, you can see it on someone if they want to, or when enough is enough. If it can happen to me, it can happen to my friends — it can happen to everyone. Even with the sweet boys. You can be used. That was me a week ago. But it fucking does. I know that. Maybe they are bright red. Or purple or whatever.
