until Roskilde Festival 2014 - 29 June to 6 July


Saturday 06.07.13 - 00:00 - Arena

One of the world’s most ethereal and delicate rock bands is finally back at Roskilde Festival – for the first time since 2006.

Sigur Rós find their symphonic future rock in an air-void space, only accessed by astronauts and abstract painters. The unmistakable Icelandic mixture of sad angelic singing, big reverb and profound organ sounds is more delicate than newly fallen snow.

The joy and redemption will even greater when front man Jónsi now and again rocks out on the electric guitar. Sigur Rós – Icelandic for victory rose – have sown something quite unique in the middle of the flower bed of rock music.

Label: XL / Playground

Delicate future rock

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.
