Quick guide for the 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.
The William Blakes

I simply don't understand why RF have *never* booked The William Blakes. It's such a mystery! I mean, even Baron Criminal (the lead singer Kristian Leths solo project) played at the festival a couple of years ago, and it was crazy and good, but why not get the rest of the band too?
The William Blakes have released four (incredible!) albums, they are about to release a new record soon, they are awesome live and they often bring great guest musicians to their concerts. The "fastelavn" concerts every year are some of the greatest music experiences I have had! This year they invited Benjamin Koppel, Kresten Osgood, Shaka Loveless and Nik & Jay among others. They celebrate the diversity, fun and creativity in the music world - which matches the Roskilde experience and the Orange Feeling so PERFECT! All of them are extremely skilled musicians. Bo Rande (who also plays in Blue Foundation) won the danish award Steppeulven for musician of the year 2012 and the band have won a lot of other awards, including DMA's... but all that doesn't really matter, because it's all about the vibes, the ambiance and the funky feelings you experience at their concerts, it's so unique and improvised - It can only make you happy.
So come on! Get those skilled bastards to play at the festival - it would be such an amazing concert and what's even better: they are available and really want to play there.
