BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN & THE E STREET BAND (US)
Saturday 07.07.12 - 21:00 - Orange
Get ready for some ”Glory Days” at Roskilde Festival when Bruce Springsteen takes the iconic main stage. Having this denim-clad superhero on Orange Stage is no longer a dream scenario.
In 2012, he and his faithful the E Street Band will fill a summer’s night with classic, poetic rock songs and the great artist has just released indignant new album Wrecking Ball.
Bruce Springsteen's influence on rock history can hardly be overstated. Without this masterful songwriter and storyteller, younger bands such as Arcade Fire and The National would not sound the way they do.
Regardless of age and knowledge of Bruce Springsteen, it is practically a civic duty to experience this artist who – despite his simple and unpretentious craft – towers up on the rock horizon.

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.
