BOBBY WOMACK (US)
Friday 05.07.13 - 19:30 - Orange
He was ready to abandon music, but Gorillaz persuaded him to sing on Plastic Beach as well as our Orange Stage in 2010. Everyone present heard a majestic soul voice. Among the last, against all odds, still standing titans of the golden era. A voice trembling with more experience than most people achieve or care for in a lifetime. Now this great artist takes the stage on his own, bringing his first solo record for the last 18 years in his rucksack. The Bravest Man In The Universe was produced by Damon Albarn among others, the record combines vintage soul and contemporary British sounds. Don’t miss this meeting with a great voice and true one of a kind.

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.
