    I´m going solo in this thread but the funny guys from Improv Everywhere is doing some kind of happening during the warm up days, the news are a little bit old but here it goes.



    Look forward to our best display of art ever
    This year’s festival features a number of art events that involve you in new thought-provoking ways. Get a glimpse of what to look forward to.
    This year Roskilde Festival’s ‘More Than Music' content is more ambitious than ever before. This means international art that involves you and wants you to participate. Roskilde Festival is not a white museum. Here you can play, if you dare to join in.

    Today we reveal a few of the international treats that you can experience this summer.

    The Danish premiere: Improv Everywhere
    Charlie Todd, the man behind the phenomenon Improv Everywhere creates mega events involving up to 20,000 people that manages to engage people in a humorous and provocative way. Maybe you've heard about 'No Pants Subway Ride'? – if you haven’t, check out the video at the bottom of the page.

    This summer you can - among other things - look forward to a huge party including a string quartet and tuxedo and prom dresses at the swimming lake when this American performance artist ad is crew comes to Roskilde.

    The sign-maker: Steve Powers
    He transforms dead, sad neighbourhoods into poetic street corners with his ‘Love Letters for You’. 50s-kitschy signs and letters are Steve Powers’ characteristics. This international artist also has the prestigious job of painting the grandstand wall by Orange Stage.

    The intimate provocateur: Einat Amir
    Imagine going into a soundproof box where you meet someone you don’t know. Speakers tell you what to do and in four minutes you’ll get to know another person. Together with Lilith Performance Studio in Malmö, the acclaimed Israeli artist shares her magnificent performance ‘Enough About Me’ with us. In an age where we constantly expose ourselves, it’s Einat Amirs wish that we ask: How well do we really know the person next to us?

    The city art craftsmen: RAUMLABOR
    The Berlin-based urban activists have created an installation at Roskilde Road Trip in Berlin, which with is interactive facade with street art and poster collages comments critically on the urban space and capitalistic companies.

    It might be difficult to imagine how it will all go down at the festival – but you can definitely look forward to be challenged at this year’s festival. Well, if you really dare to join in.

    Is it the line up that does it, well if it is the case then I understand you but I think that this is what we get when they both expand with one stage and in the same time book a artist that take up 1/3 of the music budget.

    But there are 12 names left to be announced so I cross my fingers for something good but I have decided to go anyway and will probably still enjoy concerts with bands I don't know that well beforehand.

    btw. there are missing 15 names on the poster and the rumor says that 1 headliner and 2-3 subliners are among the last 15 and Kiss and Franz Ferdinand are among the names that are mentioned together with Florence & The Machine but they usually don´t reveal the first couple of names before the middle of May.
    You mentioned Kiss a while back...this is starting to look very possible as they've just announced a stand alone date in Norway for June 30.

    Yes it looks likely but I think that I heard somewere that it was exclusive for Scandinavia.

    We also got the last name for the small Gloria stage, and it is from Marocco we got Hamadcha Sufi Tariqa and 11 to go in total.


    Musical obsession at the Gloria stage
    Hamadcha Sufi Tariqa completes the programme of obsessive, ethnic music on Roskilde Festival’s smallest stage.
    Our intimate stage Gloria presents a challenging schedule of mesmerising music from Africa, The Caribbean and Eastern Europe.

    The musical trance and persistent repetition in the rhythms and vocal harmonies are common among the very different artists appearing in this schedule.

    With their Arabian oboes, exotic major scales and persistent percussion rhythms HAMADCHA SUFI TARIQA of ESSAOUIRA (MAR) creates a unique space that is both timeless and drags you down through the centuries. The roots of this music reach more than 500 years back in time and are part of the mystic and poetic sufi tradition of Islam.

    Here is the second last announcement.


    GOSSIP (US) has a starting point in alternative rock and punk but the band embraces the lip-glossed, glamorous disco pop on the new album A Joyful Noise. The band has the iconic Beth Ditto in front, a wonderful voice and a modern diva who will soon conquer the chic queen throne. Gossip also played Roskilde in 2008 - but since then they have focused more on pop, still with lots of nerve and raw energy.

    LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS (US) are ready to make the Roskilde summer even hotter with some golden-age soul. The same brass-gilded mixture that Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley have previously won over the Roskilde audience with. When you experience the sharply dressed soul crooner and cool cat Lee Fields, you understand why he has previously been called Little James Brown.

    GENTLEMAN & THE EVOLUTION (DE) has captured a large audience with his European hybrid of reggae, dancehall and R&B. Gentleman fills the Roskilde tent with his optimistic message of love, backed by his big band The Evolution. A sunny summer party filled with rocking riddims, shouts for tolerance and Caribbean flavour awaits.

    NIKLAS (DK) has a remarkable talent for creating hits full of Danish-language rap, syrupy sweet synths, 90s disco and power-flirtatious funk attitude. Niklas has become one of today's hottest, totally home-grown pop acts on the Danish scene.

    SPILLEMÆNDENE (DK) conquer their own baroque, literary universe with a point of departure in the ballad and folk tradition. Nicolai Elsberg has a sonorous voice and is an original storyteller, like a young Danish version of Leonard Cohen.

    Full schedule is now up. I'm surprised at the lack of additions...since announcing the poster they haven't added much of significance, aside from maybe Dr John and Gossip.

    Really strong quartet of headliners but the rest of the lineup is a mixed bag. Not the strongest year IMO.
