NILS FRAHM (DE)
Sunday 08.07.12 - 19:00 - Gloria
Nils Frahm’s latest record is called Felt, named after the velvet he used to cover up the piano strings in order to avoid waking his neighbours at night when composing his songs. This awareness of sound characterises the German composer and pianist.
From the piano he creates atmospheric and satisfying soundscapes that insist on the attention of every single nerve ending in your ear.
Nils Frahm is a perfect break from pulsating rhythms and howling amplifiers. His music brings forth inner fantasies of walks in majestic landscapes covered in snow and exquisite neo-classicism, all quite far away from the festival.

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.
