SYSTEMA SOLAR (CO)
They were here in 2010; that was Solar System’s first time playing a major festival outside their native Columbia.
In 2014 their visually rich sound system party has become sweatier and sharper. The politically charged music collective mixes house, hip hop and techno with Columbia’s own genres such as cumbia, champeta and bullerengue.
Everything under the Latin American sun has melted into a mix of equal parts urban beats, Caribbean light and elements from South America’s African diaspora.
Reports from concerts abroad to Roskilde Festival speak of a live band in great form. Systema Solar’s tropical club sound creates a neon-coloured rainbow between Africa and South America.
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.
