  • 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.

I usually get really frustrated about these threads... but I pretty much agree - 2010 was wild though!

Dunno what happened, maybe they finally decided to go back to listening to the vocal minority instead of the silent majority.

Not my year I have to say. Not that I´m complaining, already got 15-20 bands on my list (with 140 to go), just nothing really special. Loved 2010 and last year too. Need more Funk, Soul and funky World Music, maybe a brass band to make my feet move...

Mostly waiting for Goat, Savages and Dead Can Dance so far, maybe Synd og Skam, C2C for party. Pää Kii of course, but the last time I saw them they played in small basement for 50 people, way too hot, the sweat was dripping from the ceiling and they played much too loudly. So perfect setting for punk. As much as I wait to see them in RF, it´s kinda hard to top that.

...And this is why Roskilde is better than most festivals - it has rooms for very diverse people (instead of Northside, who has room for a lot of clones of me)

Great year indeed! The last two years have had mediocre line-up, which in Roskilde's history are the worst line-ups they've had for as long as I've been there (18 years and counting). I almost didn't go in 2011, but purchased my ticket when Portishead was announced. This year is something completely different. It consists almost entirely of quality within the different genres, and even though I'm only at 4 absolute must-sees, there's a lot I haven't listened to, and I'm probably gonna see all my might-sees as well.

In versitality better than any festival, imo. You´ll usually get to see classy acts in so many different genres. Works for me (last year from Nasum to Julia Holter, enjoyed both). And the size (200 bands) guarantees that there´s always lots to see. So even if I wrote that this is maybe not my year, doesn´t mean that I´m not gonna be busy. You´ll need 30 bands to keep you going all day long for four days and that´s easy to find at this rate. It´s always the other way round - you´ll miss so many bands that they could be a festival on their own, and I´d still go for that. What can I say, just love it.

@Martin : If you´re right (and I do take your word for it), it´s gonna be a blast!! icon_biggrin.gif

I agree! Last year I went to 36 concert (including warmup days, but still...) and I was so wasted on monday that I promised myself not to do that again this year. But if the RF bookers keep the quality announcements comming at this pace I believe I'll have to break that promise. icon_biggrin.gif

I went to 29 concerts and I had to sit in line for Springsteen for 6,5 hours. And this year I probably won't have time to eat..

Quality metal-acts so best year since 2009! 2010 was a really bad year IMO.

This year it almost looks like a tiny version of Download Festival 2013 with:
Slipknot, Queens of the Stoneage and Volbeat as some of the major acts - and that is really great!

Kreator is my personal favorite this year though. Warbringer 2012 concert in major size!

Looking forward to Kreator, Slipknot, Queens, Volbeat, Hatebreed, Dillinger, Anaal Nathrakh, Kvelertak, Overthrow, Baby in Vain.

Now we just need some good rock n roll and some black metal and then we are all ready!

What's your definiton of that? When I think of Rock 'n' Roll (as in the spirit) QotSA is one of the first bands to pop up. Is it a lack of rockabilly?

Would mind some rockabilly/psychobilly in the line-up. It's been ages since I was to such a concert.

Stray Cats farewell tour (with original line-up) visits Copenhagen in August. Tickets are already available. They are seen as the fathers of psychobilly although their music is more traditional rockabilly.

There's alot of great rockabilly bands out there. It really time to book one. Haven't seen one at Roskilde in my 20 years there. It's great livemusic.

And I agree that we need more rock n roll (garagerock, hard rock, punkrock). Hopefully we will get some the coming weeks.

I wasn't there in 1997 when I think was last time a rockabilly/psychobilly band played Roskilde (it was Nekromantix naturally).

Strange seeing that 2 of the biggest names in psychobilly, Nekromantix and Horrorpops, are in fact danish.

EDIT: Nekromantix are as it happens actually in Europe at the right time. They're playing Pineda in Spain July 6th.

Just showing up to say that I agree on both counts. icon_smile.gif

Oh, the "authoritative" list of psychobilly or semi-psychobilly at Roskilde (authoritative until someone notices someone I missed):

1990: The Cramps
1990: Mojo Nixon
1996: Southern Culture on the Skids
1997: Nekromantix

And I've only seen one of them.

Regarding psychobilly, Powersolo has played twice at the festival. Could they be labeled as such? And how about Hank III? Tremolo Beer Gut opened the Orange stage in 2000, but they're definitely more surf than 'billy.
