JULIA HOLTER (US)
Saturday 07.07.12 - 13:00 - Gloria
Julia Holter is an acquaintance of the more sophisticated kind, with her inspiration from and references to avant-garde composition music, poetry, art films and theatre.
However, there is still an element of accessible pop music in the many-sided instrumentation of the American’s compositions. The playfulness, the excess of detail and the transitions between anything from synthesizers to cembalo, from beauty to eeriness, is invested in a melodious material that can be related to in countless ways.
Julia Holter creates ambitious avant-garde pop saturated with atmosphere, which rewards the willing and attentive listener to a great degree. Great art is hidden here in outwardly timid music.

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.
