Quick guide for the search

  • 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.

Regarding psychobilly, Powersolo has played twice at the festival. Could they be labeled as such? And how about Hank III? Tremolo Beer Gut opened the Orange stage in 2000, but they're definitely more surf than 'billy.

None of them are psychobilly. The closest that comes to it that has played in recent years (and are this year as well) is Volbeat. Psychobilly is usually traditional rockabilly in it's purest form which includes the mandatory floor bass but paired with punk attitude and extreme lyrics usually about the undead and violence in general.

Bands like The Misfits and Coffinshakers are often seen as belonging to the psychobilly genre although neither are strictly speaking.



Incidently. One of the biggest rockabilly/psychobilly festivals in Europe, Pineda de Mar (near Barcelona), coincides with Roskilde every year, so it wouldn't be that hard to get some of the bands to travel northwards.
