JULIA HOLTER (US)
Loud City Song, Julia Holter’s third record since 2011, was the best album of 2013 according to picky music magazine Wire. A rich variety of instruments appears in these dreamy songs, bringing Paris year 1900 together with contemporary Los Angeles.
The young American’s sophisticated avant-pop was already introduced to Roskilde’s audience in 2012. However, we want to give even more people the opportunity to experience this great musician.
Drawing inspiration from musicals, jazz, poetry and theater, Julia Holter may seem like a demanding acquaintance. Actually, the highly detailed music has a light touch, making Julia Holter’s universe alluring and broad.
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.
