  • Wildcard-Search
    With the help of a so-called wildcard you can look for several search words, which have the same word beginning. If you search e.g. for "Typo*", the search will find everything that begins with "Typo" : Typo3, Typoscript, Typocode, Typo3user... etc.
  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.
  • Search for user
    It is possible to limit the search result on answers of certain users. In addition to the retrieval query attach still another "user:username" and find the results, which were written by this certain user. If the username could not be found this will be ignored.

"AM" will probably get into a fair few albums of the year lists so I can see why Roskilde got them. A lot of people on Facebook complain about them being on the roster too often, but yeah, those guys are pretty much an enigma these days.

Yeah they already played 3 songs from their new album at Northside icon_smile.gif
It was in response to Cliche Guevara who was disappointed from their last concert at Roskilde, they were imo better at Northside, so Roskilde can justify to book them again icon_wink.gif
But there's nothing wrong in Roskilde taking some inspirations from Northside, is it?

People surely has the right the share their opinions but some of the reactions on facebook is quite hilarious. It seems that some people think that all 150+ acts should suit them. Or even that all headliners should be personal favourites.

Yes, Arctic Monkeys has been the festival often. That's a good point. But, it's gonna be three years between this time and the last. They have released a new album, they are Englands biggest rockband and they number three on the wishlist. People should relax a little bit. If you really love music you know that Roskilde always deliver the goods.

And all the danish people also seem to have a hang up about Northside. Why aren't people happy that there are two big festivals in Denmark nowadays. It's very strange to me to compare them all the time. Artists tour northern Europe at different dates during the summer so it must be perfect that at least one of the festivals can catch all great bands.

The times when Roskilde was one around five big festivals in all Europe is long gone. Nowadays I guess it's at least 50 huge festivals around the continent. And i love the fact that Roskilde still is the best line-up every year for me.

Btw i think Arctic Monkeys is a good and relevant booking.

Great Booking. It's right they've come in 2006, 2007 and 2011, always wih a new album, always better than the last one. They are young and rock for all the masses, i can't think in a better headliner in this style.

Of course they also should book Phoenix (never in the festival) not because of playing this year's northside, but also because of the target they have, of course as a subliner. I wish Black Keys will be too and then Neil Young with Crazy horse (as the oldie) and after that they can make some metal and some hiphop big names.

At least with the names we know now that will be touring Europe in june-july.

I didn´t see them in 2011 (I was at Balaton Sound festival instead) so the last time i saw them was at Beatday in Valbyparken in 2009.

So the point is that i can´t wait to see them again icon_smile.gif

I want Neil Young also and i hope Roskilde will book Foo Fighters in 2014. New album and tour in 2014. And my biggest dream is to have AC/DC to play Roskilde. I want also Iron Maiden back to Roskilde icon_cool.gif

This was pretty predictable, IMO, seeing as they (as previously mentioned) have been here several times since 2006, and around most of their releases. So nothing exhilarating there, but still a solid booking I am going to see and enjoy (they killed it at NS last year), unless a must-see should show up at the same time.

Agree with you about Pheonix too, though not that familiar with them but I´ve heard good things of their live performances and they´ve been long on my wish list. Hopefully Beck and Tool will tour too (I think Tool had at least one show in Mexico with Primus and Perfect Circle (imagine getting both Tool and Primus playing this year)).

Too soon indeed. Played NS lasy year, has played Roskilde a couple of times the last 10 years. Had really hoped for something fresh. Still got a bunch of names to go though, but a really weak headliner IMO.

Really don't get the criticism of this booking at all. They're one of the best and most interesting bands to come out of the 00's. Just like they've been in a huge development since 2011, where they played their last show at Roskilde. Actually think that it was the show with the biggest attendance that year! Live they have gotten a lot better too, just look at the show at Glastonbury, which has won all sorts of awards for best headlining show (at a time when The Rolling Stones and Biffy Clyro have been headlining festivals too!). Further more their newest album is considered by many to be their best, and they are one of the biggest wishes for this festival. To miss all of this would truly be a shame! ..and I saw them at NorthSide. Just glad to get to see them again.

They played NS with a 2½-year-old album. When they play Roskilde, it is the first time they play here with the new album and they are in top three of most wished bands. How can´t that be weak?

Not been a fan, hoping for something other headliner, makes sense, but weak? I dont understand that?
Whatever indierock band it booked it is not a good booking for me personal, but of the big indierock names, with Arcade fire not being in Europa I have a hard time seeing many names what is in the same league

I think I've already answered your question. It's weak because this will be their 4th time at Roskilde within 10 years. ANY band that plays that often is a weak headliner IMO. It doesn't help that they just visited another danish festival last year - new album out or not, it just doesn't make me want to see them again so soon after last time.

Well this is a difficult one. On one hand I also personally feel the "hmm already again / I was not that impressed last 3 times".
On the other hand it seems that it was an act many wished for and you just can't argue with the fact that the new album is spectacular. My younger brother was psyched as this will be his first festival / greatest must see.

To sum up, I think it's a decent booking this year, but it's severely weakened by their earlier visits (They shouldn't have been booked in either 07 and 11 or both). Hopefully the next headliners will be more fresh to us older fuckers who attend every year (Tool, Black Keys etc.)

I hope their performance will be really good and show us all that they have evolved. I might as well end up seeing it, as I really like the new album (but if they disappoint! icon_evil.gif)

I hope your brother gets a better experience than mine did. His first year (and only one so far) was in 2011 and he was incredibly psyched to see Arctic Monkeys as well. He's a huge fan of theirs. But he was pretty disappointed that they didn't seem to care.
I didn't see their show last time but I might pop by this time around. "AM" really is pretty damn good.

I thought they were good in ´11, given the fact they played so early. Also, I have that show on my digibox and it´s at least an ok gig getting better towards the end. So, a decent booking, not a must-see, since they´re not Prince... icon_wink.gif But now I have already two shows on Orange I want to see.

Well you are right. They did play quite early, and I might also always have to high expectations when I go see them. It could be fun to see them at night where everyone is drunk and ready to party (maybe like the strokes the same day in 11).

Best band at the moment. They're continuously getting bigger and progressing. Check their most recent Glastonbury performance (which they headlined)it's a good one. You're lucky they're going.
