Finally, we have M83 back at Roskilde Festival to bathe our ears in grandiose sci-fi sounds.
Anthony Gonzalez’ latest magnum opus – the double album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming – makes M83's previous releases sound rustic and simple.
80s-happy synths and bombastic noise rock float in an upward maelstrom with the Milky Way's outer provinces as the final destination – like keyboard whiz Jean-Michel Jarre would have sounded if he were backed by My Bloody Valentine.
M83 has delivered one of the ultimate dreamy soundtracks of this millennium. Over the top – and damn proud of it.
Label: Naïve / Playground
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.
