Where do you get the big headliners from? I just only read about 1-2 big names... big names and big headliners is not the same

In the Gaffa interview, Rikke said "Vi har 82 nye bands på plakaten i dag, og kommer nok til at præsentere cirka 15 artister inden vi går løs, hvor 1-2 navne vil være i den absolutte topklasse.", which I read as big headliner and certainly bigger than The nationals and Sigur Ros.


Ok, I read that too.. I don’t read the words like you do.. it can mean a lot of different thinks if you ask me

When the poster was released, I was very disappointed. And after sleeping on it, I somewhat still think that. There is a lot of hype about that day, and then not revealing any big names, makes me think that maybe something went wrong? Maybe they had something planned which didnt turn out. Roskilde Festival always have a lot of good names, but the headliners this year are missing some, and even the subheadliners could have been a lot better if you ask me. Where is Grizzly Bears, Yeah yeah yeahs, Steven Wilson etc? So many good artists who would fit perfectly into roskilde that i'm missing. But hey, you cant be satisfied every year. The three last years had some great bands for me. But what goes for the poster release, it is not so much that they didnt give me what I wanted to hear, more the fact that there was nothing big at all. Not sure if I am going this year, depends on the final bands.
Have a good weekend icon_smile.gif

It would not, but it's a good question to ask. As I have stated earlier in a post of my own, I was diasappointed at first - until I'd slept on it, and thought about what we already had. Then, I was satisfied once again.

People expect too much of the release. I expect too much of the release.

Had, say, QotSA and The National not been announced previously and was announced yesterday, people would probably complain a lot less.

And now I'm going out on a limb here: people think they are complaining about the line-up, where as they're actually just disappointed in the big release due to the hype.

Wow, thank you, Doctor Duke of DK! icon_smile.gif

Yeah sorry no D'n'B, there are so many different electronic genres to keep track on.

What can we call the French guys turntablism or something.

I just want my trance, techno and house icon_biggrin.gif

But I do always know that my kind of music is rarely on the poster but that is not the reason why I'm coming here anyway.

I love live music in almost every genre and that Roskilde can provide and I seem to enjoy alot of the African acts (not world music) and that Marcos Valle guy seems awesome.


Yeah, missing some solid House/Techno acts also. Although I'm more than sure Simian Mobile Disco will keep up the heritage of Modeslektor from last year! And yeah, this just means I'll be seeing lots of more non-electronic this year - Marcos Valle, Goat and Bixiga sound great and the whole hip hop lineup is awesome!

Don't think so, it has to do with the relation between the number of headliners and how big they are. Sure Roskilde can have 7 headliners, but there should be more bigger names amongst them. For instance(2007 had 7 headliners including Muse, The Who, RHCP and Beastie Boys and last year there were Springsteen and The Cure. In such a case it is more acceptable to only have 7 headliners. But at the moment the biggest name is Rihanna and she is smaller than the biggest names in 2012 (Bruce, The Cure), 2011 (Iron Maiden), 2010 (Prince, Gorillaz, Muse, Prodigy), 2009 (Coldplay, Oasis), 2008 (Radiohead, Neil Young), etc.

So I think the main critique is the missing of the really big names. The names that could sell out big concert halls (arenas) in a few minutes. At the moment there is not such a name.

I would say yes, but I would rater have that Sigur Ros wasn't a headliner, and they instead announced one today, not a big one like Bowie or something like that, which would take away the spotlight from the rest of the releases, but a solid headliner like Blur or similar.

I'm not sure that the posterrelease added any bands for Orange stage where we last year had The Cult, Jack White, Machinehead and Magtens korridorrer.

I think there are a lot of interesting, new acts on this year's program, but I can't for the life of me believe that Frank Ocean wasn't booked. He was lacking last year, and the fact that Roskilde choose to opt for Kendrick Lamar and Miguel this year (granted, interesting acts, but they have both performed in Copenhagen over the last two months... Frank Ocean has never performed in Denmark) I just cannot fathom..

Also, I think some more indie names and a stronger sub-headliner group with names along the line of:

Ben Howard
Two Door Cinema Club
Beach House
Major Lazer
The Weekend
Tame Impala
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Vampire Weekend,
The xx
Beach House
Kings of Convenience,
Haim
Empire of the Sun
Gary Clark Jr.
Yuna
Mayer Hawthorne
Rhye

would really do this year's program good (:

I hope at least a couple of them will appear among the last 15 acts yet to be announced.

Knowlegde bomb!! People tend to forget how completely amazing the poster was before the big release. I did. But looking at it now I can't believe how many great names that are on there. 8,5/10 - maybe more if the last names are just as good.

Regarding the Frank Ocean-problematique, I think that it's maybe too soon to have him on as a sub or headliner. Of all the livefootage I have seen with him, he doesn't seem to deliver tbh. And I have seen a lot of livefootage, been digging his music since Nostalgia Ultra. The only time that he really blew me away was at SNL, where he made two amazing appereances with John Mayer on guitar. Forrest Gump at the Grammys just seemed forgettable, just like the Coachella-concert in 2012 seemed insecure, as the singer and the band didn't seem to complement each other.
Kendrick Lamar however seems at home on a stage, both with a full band and with just a DJ. Haven't seen a rapper on stage like that since Jay-Z. This incredible talented rapper seems ready to take it to the next level, whereas Ocean already makes amazing music but needs a little more liveexperience to really pull it off. Otherwise I'm afraid he would be this big name on the poster which we'll have overly high expectations for.. eventually leading to everyone getting let down.
Haven't gotten that much into Miguel yet, but he seems to have an promising onstage persona just like his music seems pretty good and soulful

Overall this year's poster presents a pretty decent line-up, that'll probably turn out to be pretty terrific in the end. As per usual. First, a few complaints:

- Whereas the metal spectrum of this year's line-up might be right up the alley for some of you guys, I personally am not looking forward to all that many of this year's metal acts. Slipknot is most likely going to suck (last performance was pretty stale and they don't have any new material) and aside from them I'm only looking forward to Kvelertak (which might just end up being the best show at this year's festival. Seriously, be excited). Lots of metal acts on the bill, very few of them very interesting to me personally. A shame, but that's the thing about taste, I guess.

- Where is the German techno/tech house/minimal? Last year we had both Modeselektor and Paul Kalkbrenner delivering some of the best shows at the festival. This year I can't find a single act that even remotely resembles anything in that area of electronic music - in fact, Kraftwerk and The Blue Angel Lounge are the only two German names on the poster despite the fact that the Berlin scene is bigger than ever these years. I don't get it. Booka Shade would be a very welcome addition among the missing 15 or so names (Wankelmut, Klangkarussell, Alle Farben, Oliver Schories, Monkey Safari, Bakermat, Kolombo or Boys Noize would do fine as well, though).

Then some speculation:

- If we are indeed missing some 15 or so names on the poster, I personally wouldn't mind adding Grimes, My Bloody Valentine, Atoms For Peace, Graveyard, The Black Keys, Nine Inch Nails and any of the other names listed above. It seems to me that there still are a great variety of interesting names to add to the poster that would make it just a little more complete. As of right now there are a lot of empty seats genre-wise to be filled, that one would usually expect of Roskilde.

- Where's the 'dinosaur'? We often get this one major act in the rock/pop genre that started making music more than 25 years ago. I guess, Kraftwerk are what they are going with this year in terms of old-time familiarity, but they just don't quite fit in my opinion. They're not excactly a house hold name like Prince or Springsteen.

As said I like the program and it gives me a lot of different stuff

Headliners:

Slipknot: Play a great show the last time, and with them only playing a few special shows this year, I am sure it will be just as great.

Kraftwerk: Legends – might not be a band I want to see again and again, but this one time it is a sure must see

QOTSA: Good show the last time, now with a new album and Josh Homme who is not injured it will be one of the big great rock show that works so well on Orange

(Volbeat: I think I will see them, there are a few great songs on the new album, I want to hear live, and I would like to see how they have evolved as a live act.)
So 3-4 headliner I want to see, that is better then most years for me

Sub headliners:

Airbourne: Will be one great rock n roll party
BRMC: great rock band there always get good reviews form the live shows, so can only be good
C2C: 4times world champs and now a great album, what more can you want form a turntables act?
Hatebreed: Hope Roskilde knows what they have said yes to get back.. It will be crazy
Kreator: Thrash legends, I am sure it will be great.
Kvelertak: Awesome albums, awesome energy, this will be a must see act.. Hope they don’t get a to big stage that will kill some of that energy

Suicidal tendencies & Turbonegro: don’t know them that well but sounds good.

Small print:

The Bots – this is one of the most important discovers of Roskilde 2013.. It can only be great
Ensiferum – folk metal to Roskilde

Savages, The Sword and UNCLE ACID & THE DEADBEATS – don’t know the act so good, but again sounds good

Pavilion junior:
Baby in vain, Overtrow, Pää Kii – here is Pää Kii the important band, found them before Roskilde put them on the post.. That is how to make punk-rock with a catchy tone

And if I need a party there will be bands like
Rihanna, Crystal Castles, Linkoban, Maskinen

And then there is all the bands I still need to check out... dam when will I sleep and party in the camp when festival area opens?

Well spotted! That just confirms there's still a good pile of money leftover in the budget. I interpret that as either one massive headliner or two quite big headliners. So either something like David Bowie, Leonard Cohen or someone in a similar class, or two headliners who are at least in the size of Sigur Rós and The National.

I would like to direct attention back to Muse as a potential taker. When they announced their European dates they said they would be visiting Denmark. No dates were actually announced. A few months later they posted on facebook that they hadn't forgotten about Denmark. Yet they have still not announced any concert on Danish ground... Could be that negotiations with Roskilde are just taking longer than expected. Or that Roskilde is saving the announcement as one last big name to draw people a month before the festival. <- This should probably go in the rumours, but considering the current debate it seems relevant here anyway.

I don't think they have booked a headliner yet and read it like they want another headliner (probably the closing act), while the second headliner is only if tjey can find an act they want to a price they can't afford. It should at least be a 'real' headliner, where they in my opinion so far only have four real headliners.

Muse would be great, and as you said, they promised a dansih concert severel months ago (and they owe me one after cancelling Malmø last year).

But there should also be other bands for Orage stage left, since there is at most 1+ bands for that scene announced by now.

Do I like the poster?
Well, the line-up is wicked! icon_smile.gif

But I'm not too fond of the poster design. It's a little too dark and it makes me associate to being nauseous. Better than last year's poster, though. It kinda had the same feel to it, but this year's poster sort of says "party time", which is a plus. Loved the '11 poster, though. It had "awesome summer time" all over it. icon_biggrin.gif
