THE HELIOCENTRICS (UK)
Sunday 07.07.13 - 14:00 - Cosmopol
13 Degrees of Reality - the latest album by The Heliocentrics – draws on music from more than 13 different places. The psychedelic funk collective mixes Latin American, African, German and British sources of inspiration – from Miles Davis to James Brown. And that leaves out the inspiration from the rest of the Milky Way: The Heliocentrics obviously share their enthusiasm for outer space with jazz legend and main source of inspiration Sun Ra. The Heliocentrics travel – partially improvising – into a glowing constellation of genre, thumping bass, beats and syncope; a dimension full of blinking colours and dissolved consciousness.

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.
