Roskilde Festival 2006 with more than 79,000 paying visitors (as well as approximately 20 000 volunteer day workers), the 2006 festival was the biggest in Europe[1] for the year. With only one day of rain and the rest of the week being sunny, this festival also ranks as one with a lucky weather. Changes from last year include a new swimming lake - which proved to be very successful due to the warm and sunny weather - and a lounge stage called Bar'n. Another significant change was the introduction of new sound systems that reduced the noise levels beyond the audience area. This also included the removal of the big sound towers at Orange, these changes and the new surround sound system for Orange, made The Dark Side of the Moon one of the most memorable moments of the Festival. Some of the performing artists were Bob Dylan, Roger Waters, Guns N' Roses, Tool, The Strokes, Deftones, Morrissey, Franz Ferdinand, Kanye West, Placebo, Arctic Monkeys, Sigur Rós and the Streets.
