I dont see it happening.

Most of the big rock festivals around Roskilde (Hellfest, Sweden Rock, Novarock, Greenfield, Werchter etc.) have already announced their major rock acts in Rammstein and Kiss.

AC/DC would be the biggest draw for all these festivals and would most likely have been annouced first, IF they were coming. A tour as major as this would've been booked WAY in advance, so that festivals already last year would've had them booked and ready to be announced by now.

Don't forget, AC/DC require a costum stage for their act, something that alot of festivals can't accommodate.

So, besides perhaps Reading Festival, I dont see AC/DC playing any festivals at all.

AC/DC have said AC/DC's 'No Festival' Policy A Thing Of The Past. They want to do some festivals that they mist out for many years and some years ago Brian Johnson said that he want to do one Roskilde show. So never say never icon_cool.gif


http://www.classicrockmagazine.com/news/johnson-burned-by-acdc-cannon/
And the veteran singer says the band would consider making more festival appearances in future after breaking their own rule to play the Download event at Donington, UK in 2010.

I think and i hope we will see AC/DC at Roskilde someday icon_cool.gif

Download added the "Angus runway" to one of their main stages, something Roskilde simply can't do at Orange due to the crowd "boxes" in front of the stage.
They would have to re-arrange the entire pit section and I just dont see that happening.

AND, I can't imagine AC/DC playing without the runway.


Don't forget the finacial aspect as well.
The band AND their management can make WAY more money playing their own shows, than playing most festivals. And when you're a band the size of AC/DC, it's not always up to the bandmembers alone, where and when they play.

It's not that I don't want AC/DC to play Roskilde, there are just some things that are to far fetched to hope for and I do belive they are in that category.

Never say never. In 2003 AC/DC played without runway. Let s wait and see.
Next AC/DC tour will also not going to be on very big scale like last tours.
I think they will do some festivals in Europe someday

Brian Johnson says some years ago that he want to do one Roskilde show and they want to play more festivals and his wife goes to Roskilde every year and she says always to him you have to play Roskilde icon_cool.gif

Focusing on only one name in the line up, is probably the most pessimistic thing I have ever witnessed.

A headliner is the band/artist that summons a festival attitude. When a festival choose headliner Rihanna, and afterwards buys bands like Kreator etc. too smoothen out the fastfood headliner, that festival have a problem focusing their audience. Roskilde have no doubt the weakest ROCK headliners of all the big european ROCK festivals this summer, so i do beleive that Roskilde have a plan of changing their rock image over the next couple of years, and i do think its fair enough moneywise, because young folks with no clue are the investors, but it sure aint rock n roll anymore.

Then you are wrong in every way. A single headliner doesn't summons a program with 200 names on the bill. I do not buy this. If so then Slipknot, QOTSA and Volbeat should indeed make Roskilde one hell of a rock festival with three headliners with a rocking apporach? But it ain't because of one single pop-name isn't that what you are saying?

Couldn't have said it better myself. The Roskilde lineup isn't a pyramid which Rihanna sits on top of. There are at least four, maybe five headliners in the lineup atm. Three of them are in the hard rock -> metal spectrum and only one is straight up pop (Rihanna). If the headliners define the lineup, rock would be prevalent. It even is, if you look at the names booked so far.

Historically, would you say that Roskilde changed particularly, when Robbie Williams and bloody Aqua headlined side by side in 2001? This was even with the legendary Leif Skov at the helm. I don't think the festival suffered. It wasn't a sold out year, but I guess the accident the year before aswell as the cancellation of Guns n' Roses both had big parts to play in that.

In 2003 played Metallica and Iron Maiden at Roskilde. So why not two big rock or metal headliners now ?

This post is a fail. Of the four headliners so far, three of them are heavy, and you focus on the fourth to claim the festival is changing away from being a rock festival.

Besides that RF does not claim to be a rockfestival and every year it has a lot of pop, Hiphop, world music and other genres, so I don't see why you can think, that rihanna changes the festival attitude.

So far theres just ONE headliner named Rihanna - sadly but true. The bands you guys are referring to are not headliners but third row. A Metal headliner would be Iron Maiden or Metallica, a second row would be Slayer, Anthrax or Megadeath. Rumors say Bowie will be next announced headliner at Roskilde 13, but as far theres just ONE headliner named Rihanna *sigh*

It is harder and harder to take you serious, when you are saying stuff like that. QOTSA and Slipknot will headline and are bigger names then Slayer, Anthrax or Degadeth

Geez dude, what the fuck? So the mighty Download Festival which has Slipknot as a headliner is not a headliner?! Sorry to say but you are living in the past. Of course Maiden and Metallica are headliners. But you need to move on. These bands are over 30 years old. If you would have those names to be the only headliners the metal-scene would die in just a few years. Be realistic goddamnit?

But these bands are still making good music. I want AC/DC for someday and i want to have Metallica back to Roskilde. They played there last time 10 years ago

Sorry, that's bordering on being completely delusional. Bowie ain't even touring, mate.

Last time Slipknot and Queens of the Stone Age played at Roskilde, both were headliners. Both headline every single other festival they play. So, they are headliners. Volbeat is most likely the sole Danish headliner, Roskilde has every year. They've held their own at Orange stage twice before, so there isn't any reason why they shouldn't headline too.

Even if you hypotetically were right about the headliners, what should Roskilde do then? Alternate between having Maiden headline one year, Metallica the other and then back and forth until both bands crumble of old age? Surely, there are very few metal names with that lineage that are still active. And basically none really worthy of your steep, diamond-encrusted headliner pedestal. Maybe AC/DC, Kiss or Sabbath.
