Maybe we have our first cancellation, because Björk is not performing at this years Balaton Sound festival so is it just a case of lowering the number of concerts or will she also have to cancel her Roskilde gig one week earlier.

Bjork has cancelled the entire summer of festivals icon_frown.gif (according to this)

It's a massive blow, as Roskilde was lacking in the big names department, i hope they don't bump up one of the sub-headliners to replace her spot.

A lot of female vocalists are available this summer, even though this is very sad news, as she was one of my four must-sees.

Possible replacements could be Sinead O'Connor, Fiona Apple, Regina Spektor, Feist or Florence + The Machine. Nothing in the same league of Björk, but there are some ok possibilities out there.

Sad news, but looking on the bright side this should free up a big chunk of the budget. Let's see what happens now then.

The difference is that Bowie cancelled just few days before, which meant Roskidle had to act fast to get a replacement. Roskilde has plenty of time this time around to find something in the same vein as Björk, and as I mentioned, there's a lot of opportunities out there. On the bright side, if they do go with Lana Del Rey, Florence + The Machine, Regina Spektor, Feist or Fiona Apple as her replacement, that replacement won't be as expensive as Björk must've been, meaning there's room for another headliner that's something entirely different. Bad news for you if I know your taste as well as I think, it will probably be an electronic headliner, as this seems to be missing this time around, and there's a couple of opportunities in that genre.

St. Vincent gave a great performance last time she played Roskilde, so I definitely wouldn't mind that!

Bat For Lashes is lurking around Europe about the same time as well. I wonder why Roskilde didn't book these girls in the first place icon_frown.gif
