    Default Roskilde 2009 Anyone?

    I can't resist. This crushes any summer festival in the states and anywhere else for that matter.
    209 squid, British
    Copenhagen July 2-5




    have any other boardies been before? Best festival I've ever been to. Back in the Kristiana days it was just fucking nuts. Two weeks of pre-festival with tons of bands; sort of an unorganized SXSW and then the big show itself. Great sound, some rain sometimes, but tons of amazing undercard; thats my main draw.

    EDIT: add Faith No More to that lineup

    The undercard better be good as the headliners blow in a big way. I intend to go one year, but there is nothing new or exciting to persuade me in 09.

    Half the artists are pretty obscure Scandinavian acts who i'd be shocked if 99% of the board would recognise, to be fair.

    Coldplay + Lil Wayne + Fever Ray + Grace Jones = Huge win and jealousy in my book.
    of course last year was better:
    MBV + Radiohead + Jay Z + Neil Young = Crushed Soul

    if and when I attend a Euro fest...this will be the one.

    have you ever been to roskilde?

    i think some of these responses are typical from a westcoast based coachella crowd that doesnt get out much. Im just trying to see if anyone else is interested in going. guess not

    Wow, that lineup looks great. I don't know much about this festival, but I do know there are nearly three-dozen acts I would pay money to go see.

    yeah... a typical response. like marco said, I went in '07 because I was in europe for a few months and had heard good things about the festival.

    don't really care for the lineup this year... but if someone is into it, i'd recommend this festival in a heartbeat.

    indeed, they did.

    So I take it nobody from the board is gonna make this festival this year?

    well. I would agree that this isnt the same kind of lineup as the last three years, its not any worse than those, its just going to be a lot different. Some of those undercard bands I've been dreaming to see forever. Its so nice.

    I am going too, but i do live 20 miles from the festival site so its kind of stupid not to go.

    BTW. 2ManyDjs and Neurosis was added today and there is still around 20 names left.

    If you want to know it, there are 7 (or 8) stages at Roskilde and they are...

    Orange stage (main stage) - 60.000+

    Arena Stage (huge tent, sometimes the capacity is listed as 25.000 when people stands outside the tent) - 17.000

    Cosmopol (Urban music) - 6.000

    Odeon (Rock music) - 5.000

    Astoria (World music at day and club music at night) 3.500

    Pavilion (small artists) 2.000

    Pavilion Jr. (new scandinavian artists in the warm up days before the festival starts) 2.000

    Lounge - 1.300

    Those are two good adds, but Slipknot should not be that high up. At least Tuborg is the official sponsor.

    So you are going to see Fever Ray both on Roskilde and a solo koncert, that sounds cool.


    BTW. The Gaslight Anthem og Little Boots are added to the program.

    I can add Deerhoof, St. Vincent og Zu (Jazz/death metal band from italy!!!!) to the official line-up.


    Here is the best concert video from Roskilde ever, it is with danish rock band Nephew and Irish/danish rapper L.O.C (Liam O´Connor) and the song is called Hospital.
