GENTLEMAN & THE EVOLUTION (DE)
Friday 06.07.12 - 23:30 - Arena
Although he was born far from Kingston Town, Gentleman has captured a large audience with his European hybrid of reggae, dancehall and R&B.
The German-born rasta soul is also appreciated in Jamaica. He has made several trips to the island and won the respect of the country's musicians. At the same time he encourages his large, international audience to remember the reggae genre's message of universal love and diversity.
Gentleman comes to Roskilde with his big band The Evolution as a solid backing.
A sunny summer party filled with rocking riddims, shouts for tolerance and Caribbean flavour awaits.
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.
