LARS WINNERBÄCK (SE)
Sunday 08.07.12 - 16:30 - Odeon
Sweden's perhaps most popular rock singer nowadays is called Lars Winnerbäck, a sharp observational troubadour with a bulging song catalogue and a huge ecstatic crowd celebrating him as one of the brightest shining lights of the Swedish songwriting tradition.
Loaded with his poetic lyrics and acoustic guitar, he is in many ways the epitome of the classic folk singer.
However, the Linköping pride is in no way musically stagnant or conservative. On his latest album Tänk om jeg ångrar mig, och sen ångrar mig igen, synthesizers and electric guitars move away from the ballad tradition, which has previously been the popular Swede's domain.
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.
