  • 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.

Either you have some insights into the booking process that the rest of us don't, or you are jumping to conclusions. I'm pretty sure the Roskilde bookers have had plenty of opportunities to book both The Knife and Alt-J and decided not to. Booking Rihanna is hardly directly related to not booking somebody else.

Booking acts for festivals is hardly like a week long transfer window containing some 20 acts every week, that can then only be assigned that one week and which changes from week to week.


(sorry for the late answer)

As far as I heard, Roskilde practically passed the bands in question to that crap-festival they wound up on (which in itself just annoys the hell out of me).

Personally I feel it as a bit of a let down. I choose my yearly festival the same way I choose what bars and clubs to visit; from my taste in people, music and general vibe. And yes, I guess I am quite attached to Roskilde after all these years...

I dont mind Rihanna as such (I'm sure a lot of guest will have a nice time), but like when my favorite bar chooses to install a Breezer-tap instead of that supertasty new stout everyone heard about, or starts to buy over exposed pop to replace innovative, experimental, groundbreaking... well, music in the juke box, I must admit I feel, yes, a bit let down and a bit confused. Dont they have that stuff everywhere else? Did they only have room for one and went for Breezer? What?

Do you know what I mean?

I am not the one to claim that Roskilde is this and not that, but the entire frame of this festival - the entire vibe - is perfect for music that stands out artistically and tries to push boundaries globally at the music-scene and/or locally at the festival. I feel it is a shame, when names like The Knife finally - after ten years - pops up for festivals and Roskilde lets them pass! They said no to one and yes to another. That is a priority. Not that they chose directly between them. That is not what I mean. Or know of.

As mentioned before - it just stings when that priority becomes evident. I am pretty sure, they could have had all three.


Where have you heard that from? What is our source?

I would pick a brezzer over a stout every day on a festival.. But okay.. I probably would by ether.. but have and will by Somersby on Roskilde, to get something cold and fresh, that is not beer.

Roskilde booked Robbie Williams in 99.. and now Rihanna in 2013... Robbie in 99 was a much pop as Rihanna is too day.. so I don’t see what have chance over the last many 14years on that point?

The only problem I can have if Roskilde said no to The Knife.. but even if they did, I don’t see that the is a connect in the 2 bookings.. like The Juice said it is not like the booking of band X can only happen in week X

I heard this would make your Penis smaller - and I'm already risking my size, when I consider dancing to Rihanna...

I get really sad when I see all the comments on facebook and elsewhere. What kind of Roskilde goer judges the whole festival based on only one name? These people are so negative and I do hope they stay home. For me Roskilde has never lacked for great music and other great stuff to do. What's the point of bitching about one single concert when you can do so much else at Roskilde. Those ignorant assholes are probably one of the worst things about Roskilde. If you care about the festival you should know it's not only about one act. It pisses me of. icon_confused.gif

I think Rihanna is a great booking. Maybe just because I was really surprised by it. I do think of her as superficial and commercial pop and that's really not my thing. But she does keep on making hit after hit after hit and she been doing it for some years now. If nothing else super interesting is on when she plays I'm gonna have a great party and feast on a couple of guilty pleasures.

you are so right
they have totaly misunderstood what roskilde is all about yes there are upcomming names but many pop names has been on the festival sinse it began and one of the things that define roskilde as one of the best known festivals is that it is for everyone and it spands from one side of the music genre to the other and i never hope that changes
its gonner be a great year se you on RF2013
ps:remember the orange feeling ;O)

The knife are also playing two concerts at Vega in May, so they probably wouldn't be at RF even if Northside didn't book them.
By the way I don't see why Northside is a crapfestival: Both last year and this year they have gathered a very good lineup with a lot of artists, which would look good at RF.

According to her website she's in Poland on Sunday:

She's definitely not going to be the last act on Sunday then.

I researched a bit and found out that she makes $800.000 for each show.

http://www.celebritynetworth.com/articles/entertainment-articles/rappers-concert/

I think that Roskilde generally pays less money than other venues because of its profile (all proceeds goes to charity and all that) so it is possibly less than that. Anyway it is hardly a fourth of the music budget as it has been suggested.

Personally I do not find her interesting. She is a major booking, no doubt...but she is also the girl that sings about girl power and takes back the dude that beat the shit out of her while she is creating attention towards herself with almost-naked twitter pictures instead of music. I find it sad that she feels the need to do so. To me it feels like she is justifying something.

If you can separate the person from the music and just enjoy the show I think it is going to be a great concert. I am not convinced I will be able to do that, but I think I will give it a try if I do not have other plans. icon_smile.gif

Then it seems Saturnus got it right. We're probably looking at a show similar to the M.I.A. show in 2011, which makes perfect sense, I guess. would have preferred to have Rihanna play on Sunday but I guess I'll manage.

The fourth of the budget is based on the assumption, that she costs as much as Prince and Springsteen, 10-11 mio DKR, but 800000$ is only half of that, so there should still be room for a big headliner or two.

Don't hang me up on this but I seem to remember that the music budget is around 36-40 million kr. out of a total budget of 120 million so if the 3-4 million figure is correct then it justifies that booking.

no matter how you feel about rihanna the crowd is still the most important part of a festival. i always look at live festival footage and the crowd creates the atmosphere. i am sure the roskilde crowd will be able to make rihanna enjoyable icon_biggrin.gif
