  • 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.

While I somewhat agree with Robbie Fowler Is A Fool, I still have to point out, that this year's program is far better than last year. Roskilde started out with huge and great anouncements, and there's no way they can continue that way throughout every announcement. Maybe they should reconsider the way they announce bands, because with the bands they started out with this time around, how can anyone not be disappointed afterwards? However, I don't consider all the announcements post The Roots completely dire. Most are in small print, which means few knew them before their announcement, and therefor few will get excited about them. But there is indeed some gold in there. To me Baroness was a huge announcement and on my must see list, and there's a couple on my might see as well. I'm expecting a lot from poster day, because as I said, I do agree somewhat with Robbie Fowler Is A Fat Bastard, there's some headlining material missing and there's a lot of opportunites out there, that I hope Roskilde will add in my favour. I still am satisfied with the program so far, it will keep me more busy than last year, where one of my clearest memories was sitting on a saturday eating breakfast with a couple of friends, and having a hard time finding just one band we wanted to see on that day. That's never happened to me before in my 17 years of Roskilde, and hopefully it won't ever happen again.


Ey! That is way below the belt! No one messes with the Zoha.... Fowler!

For the rest of the post: Spot on!

Red Fang is my favourite signing so far

There is nothing wrong in having high expectations just as long as they are within limits of reality and as long i don´t expect all the trance DJ´s in the world to be announced then i think its a shame that anyone should point fingers at anyone because they are exited for the poster release.

I know that i probably don´t know half the names released and that only 10 % of the names will get me exited but if we can´t discuss the poster then why have a debate forum.


You will never get a reply on this question. Some people likes harmony more than passion


@Bongo Anders & Hoestler.

where did I imply that you can't debate? I just joined the debate by implying that every year theres some self-appointed expert with analytical superpowers, saying the lineup is weaker than ever. It's getting old.


Are you saying every year consists of an equally strong line-up?


What a "strong" lineup consists of, is hard to determine on Roskilde's standards. On a festival like Download or Sonisphere it's easier to know what to expect. I like to keep my mind open when it comes to Roskilde icon_smile.gif


Not fair that: You can look at the interest the big guns are getting and also how many of the small bands progresses in the following year.

90% of the bands this year is totally not bands of magnitude that should be booked at one of the biggest festival in the world. Unless: They are all meant to be bottom of the list and that the big release is where all the big guns will come out.

I understand why you're disappointed year after year by the Roskilde lineup. It's about expectations. The 10% you dig are the headliners and subliners. You expect the remaining 90% to be of the same magnitude, and this is where the film breaks. There are maybe 30-35 slots or so at Orange and Arena to be filled by headliners, subs and the occasional smaller band with arena rock qualities (Asian Dub Foundation, Den Sorte Skole, Flogging Molly, Shantel and Wilco are good examples of small print names who could fill the Arena tent up pretty nicely when they played there across the past decade). If your wet dream of a lineup was to come true, it would require an entirely different set of stages. Like five exact copies of the Arena tent instead of the smaller, more intimate stages that Roskilde has now and has had for donkey's years now.

Let's dig into twenty of the smaller names:

There is a plethora of great hiphop names in the programme:
A$AP Rocky, Mac Miller, Royce da 5'9", Wiz Khalifa and Yelawolf.

There is the slew of Southern rock and metal names, presented as a "theme" one day:
Baroness, Crowbar, Hank 3, Red Fang and Weedeater.

There is a pretty solid electronica handful:
Paul Kalkbrenner, Martyn, Shlohmo and Toddla T.

There is a very respectable Scandinavian indie/rock broadside:
120 Days, Dead Skeletons, Sivert Høyem, I Got You On Tape, Jonathan Johansson and Larsen & Furious Jane.

Yeah, they are billed in small print, but that doesn't mean that they're unworthy acts. Most have several albums out, years of a career and draw crowds of thousands when they're playing at festivals. You just haven't discovered them yet.

And THEN there are the 40-50 extremely small bands for the warmup stages. Your statement would objectively ring true, if the percentage you mentioned reflected the warmup bands who make up half of the announced names so far.


Didn't put into account the amount of warm up bands that is on the list- that gives the lineup a bit different outlook to me. I'll get back to the rest of your post- but, you are really wrong about me. I don't care how big the bands are on a personal level, and I probably knows at least as many "small" bands as any of you (take a look at some of my other posts in the music section) but I don't think Roskilde should focus sooo much on trying to be the breakthrough festival for small bands.

I can't think of a single smaller band from last year that has elevated it's status since summer. Can you?

Funny you should mention Asian Dub Foundation, I was there at the show in 95 (I think) when they were an extremely strong small print band icon_wink.gif Those days you didn't have to look at the subliners or headliners to find plenty of bands you recognized as I've argued before.

Leif Skov is my hero, he knew what he was doing icon_wink.gif



Regarding small names last year, you must have overseen Charles Bradley. He is playing a sold out show at Store Vega later this month. Pretty good for a man, who only few knew before last year. Besides him Nicholas Jarr, Odd Future and The Tallest Man on Earth are also examples on small names from last year, who has elevated since last year


Didn't really overlook Charles Bradley, one of the very few highlights last year. I've known him for a while, and I don't think his status has risen since- as I am not only talking about Danish popularity but if they progress in general to become big artists. The guy is ooold also though, so not likely he will be the next Michael Jackson, although that is irrelevant.

Odd Future has not become bigger as far as I know- in fact their main members have been focusing on their solo careers which makes sense as they are doing really well.

@ Thyrrestrup

I think there will be big name, we headlineres and a lot of subsheadlines still. How big the names will be is hard to say, but I am sure a lot of well known names will come up, and whit sonisphere uk cancelled the chances is higher

Just wanted to answer this isolated and name a handful:

OFWGKTA has ascended to headliner-status in some circles:
http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-fAFtrakAsqc/Tjb7L8xTWNI/AAAAAAAAASg/BO6dAVTmwk8/s1600/FFF6_10X13.25+web.jpg (billed same size as Slayer, Public Enemy etc. – some of the other headliners are smaller, but these are still names that would subheadline Roskilde and similar festivals)
http://static.okayplayer.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/Paid_Dues_festival_flyer.jpg (billed same size as Wu-Tang Clan (!).

James Blake is subheadlining Northside Festival aswell as Hultsfred. He was one of the smallest names last year on the Roskilde poster.

Chase & Status subheadlines Download, Hultsfred and loads of other festivals.

Iceage are touring US and Europe thin despite being a bunch of snotty teenagers from Copenhagen. Roskilde helped break them to the public. Subheadlining Hove Festivalen and playing Pitchfork's own festival in Chicago amongst others.

Janelle Monae subheadlines Latitude 2012 and was one of the select few artists, Prince chose to bring with him on tour last autumn. She kinda exploded on Roskilde with a concert that received full markes wherever it was reviewed.

Oh Land went on to have her songs sung by contestants in both the competing song contests in Denmark – Voice and X Factor. One hell of a win for a small pop artist like her.
