If its one way or the other doesn´t matter, I just don´t buy that they have used around 50% of the music budget on The Stones.

We can agree on that.

This was told by a music agent (not affiliated with Roskilde) in the radio.

So its very likely that they cost 20 millions but not all of the money is from the 44 million music budget.

I would have guessed that they had a maxprice that they would pay for a band (at around 10mio dkr), like Glastenbury alligitaly have a max price of 1mio pound (which I believe they f.ex paid for Rolling Stones last year).
Personally I could accept paying 10mio dkr for Rolling stones as the super headliner, but not 20mio dkr (no band is that good).

As a nonprofit organisation, it should be a challenge to manage this extra budget, since the extra money really only could be taken from their profit (especially with late bookings like Metallica and Prince).



But The Stones are legends and not many years left to get true rock legends to Roskilde.
March 13 - Roskilde!!! - Pinkpop and Werchter: Tickets this Saturday!

=> Just now, we have strong rumors coming in that the Stones will play Roskilde festival between 29 June and 6 July! (Thx cospo_ for the first link! See also the COMMENTS!) We now have about three articles where the gig at Roskilde is announced like a fact. They get 24 million kronor for the gig; that would be $ 4.4 million or 3.2 million Euro, woah! They cite as a source a "always reliable international festival source" for confirming the news - that's ok for me. It is not official, but I guess, we can take it for granted, that the Stones are going to play at three festivals this summer. Woah!! We're gonna have a BLAST, folks! Let's Rock 'n' Roll!

I don’t know if there is budget reserve, but Roskilde Festival Gruppen is both the Forening Roskilde Festival that makes the festival and give all the money to charity but also Fonden Roskilde Festival that makes money on renting out gear and other stuff. That is not nonprofit, so they have some money there to make sure that if Festival have a bad year they can take some money from Fonden to make the festival next year (I have no idea how much money is in Fonden)
So just info (on Danish: http://roskildefestivalgruppen.dk/her_er_vi/vores_organisering/ )

Interesting to read, since I didn't know they could share economy with the other part of the RF-organisation, if they will pay the rest of Rolling Stones salary, them I'm fine with the booking icon_smile.gif But I think they should never use more than 10mio dkr on their own music budget on any artist.

It s hard time for Sir Mick but let s hope they will still come. He played concert when his father died and they tour also when Keith kid died in the 70 s.

Rock n roll is part of our lives. Lets hope Mick will feel bettter soon.

According to iorr.org the gig will likely be a pre roskilde show on the 2nd of July.

I don't know what to think about that, my first thought is that its a stupid idea.

But I'm almost sure that when they are announced it will be for the regular festival dates.

I think that also. It s looks like they will be in Stockholm before they will come to Roskilde. And now Vienna in Austria is now confirmed.

They never announce the big names with the poster release, so announcing Rolling Stones there would be really wierd, and it would also mean that nobody would notice any other ands announced that day.
I think the poster release usually is dissapointing, since it seems like they announce all the interesting names where you think "I can see why they should book this band" before the poster release (and a few bans after the poster release), while the poster release mostly have the fillers just to make up a full lineup. I think they last year announced Turbonegro and Black rebel society on Orange and Airbourne on Arena as the only acts for the two big scenes.

Hopefully there will be more this year.

With Outkast and Rolling Stones both playing on thursday it also means that there is still missing two major headliners (one for friday and one for sunday) unless Damon Albarn will play one of these spots. But those will not be announced on posterday.

Weren't Arctic Monkeys and the Strokes announced on the poster release in 2011?
I thought there were one or two headliners announced on each poster day, but maybe I'm wrong?

Last years announcement probably was weaker than usually, and I remember from the last few years that Artic Monkeys and The Strokes was announced in 2011 and Jack White in 2012, so we could get a headliner, but I wouldn't expect it and especially I can't imagine them announcing a big headliner, since it would take the focus away from the other bands.

But I hope to be proven wrong icon_smile.gif

They have explicitly stated that they aren't done announcing headliners though. This could mean that we have something good coming April 3rd.

I think they will release a headliner on 2. of april.

First of all they have done it before - Jack White, The Strokes, Arctic Monkey and the Prodigy(I guess)

The second reason is that they need a headliner or two to the program and escpecially a big name to close the orange stage. Right now Outkast, Stones, Damon Albarn, Arctic, Major Lazer and Trentemøller are all playing thursday, friday or saturday and i dont see any other acts to be big enough to close the festival.

I thought they were going to bring either The Black Keys(and let Stones close) or maybe Robert Plant - but now i dont have a clue..

I think there is a bigger headliner for sunday left but it will be announced after the poster. There should also be another headliner left (unless Kasabian is a headliner) either it will be the big headliner on friday or Damon Albarn will get that spot (like Jack White did), but if it is a bigger headliner, I don't see it announced on poster day.
