until Roskilde Festival 2014 - 29 June to 6 July


Sunday 08.07.12 - 20:30 - Odeon

Few places have defined the sound of the American South as much as the state of Alabama, and few bands manage to combine good old-fashioned greasy soul with genuine R&B as much as Alabama Shakes.

With the debut album Boys & Girls on the move from hype to hit lists, the quartet from Athens, Alabama prove that their musical intensity and sense of tradition have far from suffered from the fact that they are one of the hottest bands at the moment. 

Singer and guitarist Brittany Howard has already been named the next big queen of rock, so don’t miss a tasteful and swinging bite of the South.

Label: Rough Trade / Playground

Swingin’ soul and rampant R&B from the South.

Band schedule is ready in May

Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.

We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
