Very nice to read is this bit: The Stones will also play London's Hyde Park in July, and may add European festival dates. Even further dates could be possible, but, of course, there are no concrete plans as yet. from http://stonesnews.com/
Hmm maybe Roskilde ? Could be awesome icon_cool.gif

Awesome ? YES!

BUT - there's always a but icon_lol.gif

A roskilde ticket would be cheaper than a stones ticket - i've heard several times thats why you will never see Rolling Stones play Roskilde - too many ticket holders would only come that night. But sure it would be awesome

Didn´t they also say that with Bruce Springsteen last year and it was for sure not empty on the festival ground the other days.

What's the point of that link?? It has nothing to do with Rolling Stones and Roskilde's profit doesn't have any effect on the musicbudget.. It's the same every year, of course with a genral inflation taking into account. Increase in beersales = Rolling Stones at Roskilde: What?? I don't even..

Yeah, Roskilde can´t spend their last year´s income on this year´s bands due to tax rules. So extra money has to be spent on charity every year to get tax benefits as a charity organisation.

don't get your point with the link at all? don't you know how roskilde works? icon_rolleyes.gif

btw. at the "bigger bang tour" rolling stones' price pr. concert was about 32 mio. dkk.

it's 20 mio. more than they paid for e.g. Prince.

Don't believe in rolling stones EVER will come to roskilde...

Let s wait if the get the price more down. You are not the rolling stones manager. If Roskilde can book Roger Waters, The Who and Bruce Springsteen then they can also book The Stones icon_cool.gif

But Glasto sells around 130.000-170.000 tickets and Roskilde sells almost 80.000 tickets plus 20.000 day tickets.

Plus that glasto have a 1 million pound limit on headliners, no matter who they are.

Are you not contradicting your point with that last sentence?

Maybe I should be more specific.

If Roskilde told, Bruce or Prince or whatever that there is a limit of lets say 5 million they would simply just say no to perform.

Glasto is such an important festival that the big bands will come anyway even though they probably could have earned 2 or 3 million pound on a gig at Wembley.
Roskilde has to pay up or else they just perform in Parken or a field in Herning or Horsens, that why Roskilde will have to pay 12-15 millions for the big names while Glasto can get a discount so to say.

So to clarify

Glastonbury
Bigger music budget (but also more stages)
Salary cap
Worlds biggest festival both in size and prestige and the media market in GB are huge so bands performing will get more press coverage from around the world.

Roskilde
Smaller Music Budget (but also fewer stages)
No Salary cap (or at least I don't know it)
Its still a top 20 festival of the world but lacks the prestige that Glasto and Coachella has and the only press coverage they will get is a bad review from Thomas Treo in Ekstrabladet.

You don't think RF is important enough to get a discount? According to rumour Bruce Springsteen took a big discount to play at RF last year (11mio dkr instead of his usual 28mio dkr). It is of cause unconfirmed, but I think it would make sense, that they can get a discount from some of the big artists, since RF has a good reputation and also won the artists favourite award last year.

Personally I'm not a fan of spending +10 mio dkr on any artist at RF, if Rolling Stones ego is out of sync with reality, then they have to stay home, since there are 199 other acts, RF also need to pay for.

Maybe you are right and I'm not, its pure speculation from my side because I know nothing about how Roskilde are booking bands.

But I was thinking of an American journalist (think it was pitchfork)that during a festival report referred Roskilde to a regional festival rather than a world renowned festival, and that was the same year as we had Prince.

But yet again that it his opinion.

Putting the money talk aside, I don't see the Stones play Roskilde just for the fact that their stage setup is HUGE and too highly incorporated in their show for them to let it go for a Roskilde concert.

Maybe they'll give a discount, as they will be playing at their own '76 european tour stage/tent/canopy icon_razz.gif (I know the tent isn't the exact same today, but identical)- and throw a concert with a "smaller" setup.

This picture is from tour from 2005 to 2007. In 2007 The Stones played Isle Of Wight without all the stage setup. Let s see and wait

Stones are now confirmed by Glastonbury.. Well, eventhoug I never will believe it, this makes a slight posibility for a Roskilde gig..

The talk on the Coachella boards goes on the Stones had declined to perform at Coachella for 5 million dollars and that they asked for 7 million dollars.

Another one talked about that theu didn´t want to perform at any for profit festival this year, that rules out Coachella but doesn´t rule out Roskilde.

This is of course just rumours so don´t take it for anything other than that, but its interesting nonetheless.

True. The Stones are maybe going to play more festivals in Europe. I really hope they will visit Roskilde and we need classic rock band to Roskilde icon_cool.gif

"The orange canopy was originally designed in the UK for The Rolling Stones’ summer tour in 1976." Could be that the band could get a little kick playing at their old stage altso? (even though the canopy technically been replaced with a new one). The Stones at RF would be really really awesome!

Yeah, as far as I recall, Bill Harkin's original canopy design was actually intended to be a stylized version of the Stones' Tongue and Lips logo - same thing as the photo above. (Don't ask "why orange, though?"icon_wink.gif

(Harkin coincidentally designed the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury too)
