AZEALIA BANKS (US)
Sunday 07.07.13 - 16:00 - Cosmopol
She achieved star status before the world (i.e. the Internet) had even finished listening to a single song from this dirt dropping MC and singer. The EP 1991 took it’s name from Azealia Banks’ birth year. Soon everybody realised that pure talent was entering the stage through the cloud of hype, beefs and buzz. Azealia Banks departs from hip hop to create her very own regime – commanding other genres of music to kneel before her superior flow, wit and edge. 2013 may be a year even more important than 1991: This year should see the release of Banks’ debut album and she will show Roskilde Festival the stuff she is really made off.
Label: Interscope / Universal
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.
