  • 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.

Excuse me. Primavera Sound is about 40000 people/day which is like half of the people that come to Roskilde per day. I go to primavera every year, so I know what i'm talking about icon_wink.gif


ehem....

And did Caribou headline last year?

I go every year too, what's your point?

The figures say an average of 40,000 per day, but 100,000 paying customers over the weekend. This must be down to locals paying for day tickets.

Either way 40,000 is not a long way off 60,000, and with the added extras of single day attendees, you're looking roughly the same amount.

This is besides the point, and yes, Caribou did headline last year, they played at 00:45 on the second biggest stage, at the same time as Grinderman and Flaming Lips were playing the main stage, and at the same time that Interpol were playing a lesser stage.

They got billed equally with Fleet Foxes, The National, Interpol, Sufjan Stevens, The Flaming Lips, Belle and Sebastian, Animal Collective, PJ Harvey, James Blake, Explosions In the Sky, Pulp, DJ Shadow, Caribou, Deerhunter, Mogwai, Simian Mobile Disco, Echo and The Bunnymen, The Walkmen, Big Boi, Battles, Warpaint...

And if I remember correctly, a couple of these have headlined different stages at Roskilde in the past. Some of these are up and coming, some are more established.

These are their peers, despite anyone's opinion, and I never said Caribou were THE headliner to replace Bjork - I simply said that Caribou, Radiohead and Massive Attack, in combination would be more than enough to replace Bjork. Which is also my opinion. So unless ye have anything interesting to say, you can give it a rest.

And your solution is to put a band who can't even headline a smallish festival in Spain?

I never said that.

What I said was, that if Bjork were to cancel, then she could be replaced by a combination of 3 bands - Massive Attack, Radiohead and Caribou - all three are her peers, and in combination, would more than make up for Bjork if she were to cancel.

This is all I've ever said.

Also, Primavera is larger than Roskilde, sorry to burst your bubble, but that is fact. More people go to Primavera.

Primavera = 100,000+
Roskilde = 65,000 / 70,000+

And I don't see why you're saying Caribou 'can't even headline a smallish festival', because they did headline a larger festival, Primavera, along with 20 bands of a similar stature.

I fail to see 20 bands on the Roskilde bill who are of a similar stature. Less than 10 in fact. I remember a couple of years ago, there would easily be 20 prominent bands on Roskilde's bill. Less and less every year, sad but true.

You're in denial kid. And on top of all of this, you've also twisted my words. You're so righteous! icon_lol.gif


Hey, I've never said that the festival is as good as it used to be. I have just argued that Caribou never is a headliner at RF at their current status, and that they weren't headlining Primavera- a festival who is a lot smaller, both in terms of crowd and the size of bands they attract, then you have tried to let us believe.

None of these should headline RF, so your point is really not that good.

"Caribou are also an amazing live band, mind-blowing, and could fit the bill as a headliner, they're touring with Radiohead, and like them, will also be free on the 8th;"
- this is what you said. It clearly states that you think they "could fit the bill as A (singular, as in alone not as a three some) headliner. Don't try and deny what you said, it's there in black and white icon_wink.gif

We have never talked about headliners at different stages at Roskilde. Either they headline the festival, or they don't.

Caribou would be a great booking, but I'm with Høstler here. There's no way in hell they (he) would headline. Subheadline, tops.

It's also a bit of a stretch to compare a festival with 40.000 attendants to Roskilde, which is three times as big, if you factor all the volunteers in. The 100.000 strong number from Primavera comes from combining the number of attendants each day. If the Roskilde audience was counted in a similar fashion, the number at Roskilde would be 400.000+.

Kenny, Suarez, Coldblooded, lets put this to rest.

I initially said, Caribou + Radiohead + Massive Attack = Bjork. I then when on to say, that they'd make a great headliner, because they would make a great headliner. I've seen them headline the Electric Picnic and Primavera, and I have NOT seen a better live band than Caribou over the past 3 years. They've never disappointed, and their live shows are amazing. Also, I've looked up figures for Primavera, and over 120,000 tickets were sold in 2011. It's bigger and bigger every year. And of course Roskilde is bigger, because it has the biggest campsite on the planet, and a lot of people to take care of. Primavera has no campsites, and needs no volunteers. In fact, they hire security - and my friend, who is a photojournalist for Vice/NME, got jumped by the hired security, and they stole his gear, and disappeared off into the night... It's a vastly different environment. But the ticket sales don't lie. 67,000+ tickets sold for Roskilde 2011, 120,000+ tickets sold for Primavera 2011. All in all, there would be a similar amount of attendees at stages, particularly on the Friday and Saturday nights.

Anyway, this doesn't concern me. I couldn't care less.

And you're forgetting the case in point - that this year's Roskilde line-up has less genuine headliners than any other year in recent memory. And if Bjork doesn't make it (which I'm sure she will) then the bill will look a lot worse.

And the only way to rectify that is to fill the remaining 15 slots with some quality acts / subliners / call them what you want. Just because they lack popularity, does not mean they lack quality.

There won't be many headliners available at this short notice, besides Radiohead I guess, and if they're coming, then Caribou might as well too.

And IMO, 15 quality 'subliners' is much better than one or two quality headliners and 10+ filler acts.

And there's already too much filler on the bill.

Anyway, if Caribou do end up being added to the bill, we can all meet at their gig and have a dance and put this behind us. And then you can see how good they are for yourselves.

(i keep having to edit this because i use the 'ampersand' symbol for 'and' and the html forums here don't like that at all!)

Well the question was if Caribou headlined Primavera last year and i will allow to answer this question before we put in to a rest.

Big surprice they did not, the headliners were as followed.

Pulp, PJ Harvey, The Flaming Lips, Animal Collective, Belle and Sebastian, Interpol, The National, Fleet Foxes, Sufjan Stevens, Mogwai, John Cale and band with BCN 216, Mercury Rev, M. Ward and Low.

And none of those have the size to headline RF in my opinion. I know it has happened with PJ Harvey, but that wasn't a strong headliner by a long stretch.

Well, The Flaming Lips and Pulp would be ok headliners I think... not the biggest, but they seem too big for the subheadlining slot.

I think PJ, and maybe Flaming Lips + Pulp are the only ones from that list who deserves headliner status at Roskilde.

With that said The Flaming Lips, Animal Collective, The National, Mercury Rev and Low would all be must-sees for me.

I have to admit I am not really sure how big Pulp's comeback is, so hard to say definitely for me.

Personally they weren't big enough to headline even back in their days. Mainly because back then the ceiling was a lot higher
