MAÏA VIDAL (FR)
Thursday 05.07.12 - 17:45 - Gloria
Paris calls for a soundtrack of accordion, glockenspiel and sweet charm.
Maïa Vidal is a worldling with New York, Montreal and Barcelona as her home turfs, but her primarily English-language songs bring about a feeling of the city of lights.
Her music is rich on classic Seine atmosphere. Meanwhile, the singer is not afraid to include a cover of punk idols Rancid whom she has previously paid tribute to on an entire EP.
The well-traveled Parisienne uses accordion, guitar, violin and various toy instuments in her both playful and nostalgic universe.

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.
