KID KOALA (CA)
Sunday 07.07.13 - 18:00 - Cosmopol
He is a jester wearing several caps: Away from his turntables Kid Koala moonlights as a graphic novelist and designer. Ask any music nerd, though, and his trademark will forever be his virtuoso skills at the record players: He uses his turntables as a melodic instrument, bending a single long note under the needle at different speeds, thus creating a seasick, psychedelic and jazzy sound all of his own. On his latest record, 12 Bit Blues, Kid Koala puts blues music under the needle and he will continue the sounds from this album with his extravagant vinyl vaudeville 2.0 show, featuring costumes, dancers and robots.

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.
