JOHN GRANT (US)
Sunday 07.07.13 - 16:30 - Odeon
John Grant guested Roskilde Festival 2011 in the wake of his breakthrough album, Queen of Denmark, treating his audience with intimate piano version of his 70’es-esque ballads. On his new album Pale Green Ghosts this brutally honest bohemian has directed his gaze at the 80es and electronic music without abandoning his heartbreaking song craft. The former lead singer of long-overlooked The Czars enjoys an uplifting momentum these days, making him a likely candidate to a larger stage this time around.
Label: Bella Union / Cooperative
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.
