Quick guide for the search

  • 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.

So glastonbury has announced its line up. It is around the same time as Roskilde.

I'm hoping that one of the following will come: The Xx, Ben Howard, James Blake, Villagers, Glen Hansard, Gary Clark Jr., Frightened Rabbit, The Smashing Pumpkins and Major Lazer.

It is a shame that Mumford and Sons, Nick Cave and Alt-J allready are playing somewhere else in Denmark, they would have been great.

Don't rule out Mumford and Sons yet; just because they're playing here in like two weeks doesn't mean they won't play Roskilde. Unknown Mortal Orchestra are playing VEGA on the 21st of May, for example.

With that said - that is one sweet-ass line-up.

Uhh, didn't know Chase & Status were around. Bring them, I didn't get to see them last time, but it sounds like it was one hell of a show banghead.gif

And overall one hell of a lineup icon_wink.gif

If that is the case, then no they probably won't.

That´s just an insane line-up... I mean there´s just isn´t any point in that, you just can´t see 10% of the bands you want to see, Roskilde is hassle enough and I cry a little inside every year when the schedule is out and I see which bands I´ll miss. With Glastonbury I think is just showing-off. icon_smile.gif

That's insane 100 stages in 4 Or 5 days and then there is all the other activities going around.

But how do they get that many stages, some of them must change names each day (like Apollo and Countdown) or else it's more than insane.

They don't change names (except on a yearly basis), but:

1) Glastonbury's four times the area of Roskilde (including the camping area - Glastonbury doesn't have a split between festival site and camping site).

2) If a group of acrobats made a performance on the porch of Gringo Bar, it would be considered a stage by Glastonbury standards.

By Glastonbury count, Roskilde has probably 30-35 stages. Skate would count; the Spoken Word tent would count; the "B:aMAZEd" projection installment last year, and Dorit Chrysler walking the festival grounds with her theremin would count. Heck, the 00's Red Stage would count.

Many, if not most, of the stages aren't music stages. The stages that correspond to anything like Roskilde's stages are the ones listed on the poster.

That said, all of them are bigger, in terms of capacity, than Roskilde's equivalents - The Acoustic Tent, for example, is the size of Cosmopol - right down to being the exact same tent.

And don't get me wrong. Glastonbury is awe-inspiring, even for someone used to Roskilde icon_biggrin.gif - but in terms of activities, while there's more, it's mainly more spread out over a bigger area.

Ohh I see, then it adds up.

But I saw that they had a stand up stage, if they could stay away from many of the danish stand up'ers it could be a cool stage to have at Roskilde (perhaps in one of the barns).
