WIZ KHALIFA (US)
Thursday 05.07.12 - 20:30 - Arena
You've probably heard "Black and Yellow", which has been a huge hit on the radio almost everywhere. With this festive and poppy tribute to his local NFL team, Wiz Khalifa went straight for the mainstream heart of the wide audience and gave both Drake and Lil Wayne a fight for their money about being the young generation's biggest hip hop hero.
The tattooed rapper from Pittsburgh is not as new to the game as his birth year (1987) might indicate. In the course of numerous mixtapes and other releases Cameron Jibril Thomaz has expanded his fan base with a persistence, energy and dedication, which also shows during live shows as a true contrast to his cannabis-seasoned and laid-back hip hop.

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.
