  • 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.

Well, not bad batch of names, except for Albarn as headliner. No coments.

Are we sure that he is headlining at this point? If he is, he's at least a bigger name with a longer career than the likes of Bon Iver for example...

I initially thoght the Jack White was a weak headliner, but when he included the songs from his band, he was actually a good headliner, it could be the same with Damon Albern if he includes songs from Gorillaz and Blur (which he has to since he only has made one soloalbum).

So I really like all the announcements today especially Interpol.

Of course, look at the banner in the main page. For me it's not a problem if he is the choosen one to crash with a real headliner, as happened to PJ Harvey, Bon Iver and Sigur Rós last three years.

Now he have 4 headliners and this will not be my year, I guess....

Relax bro, we do only have 34 bands announced yet so here are aprox 126 bands left to be announced.

If Roskilde Rising and Apollo Countdown keeps the same schedule as last year (minus the sunday concerts) then only 33 of the aprox 126 bands will be for these two stages.

So you can look forward to aprox 93 more announcements for the main festival.


My point being is that I think that you will find something you like in the final programme. icon_biggrin.gif

One of the better rounds of announcements! Big fan of Blur and Gorillaz and looking very much forward to the soloalbum.
Interpol is on my bucketlist so niiiice!
Warpaint sounds interesting, kinda like Savages without all the anger. Only heard "Love is to Die" though..

Major Lazer can't be a headliner in the end, can he/they?

Albarn and Interpol are both artists I'll watch, and Warpaint looks interesting, but this is still nowhere near a line-up I want to pay a large amount of money for. Surely, Roskilde will have an amazing headliner or two in the near future(?), but so far I am not at all impressed. But hey, that's my opinion. I've never been a fan of Blur nor Gorillaz, so even though I'll probably watch Damon, it's with a hope in the back of my head that something better will be playing meanwhile...

That is also my thought, when you look at the names in big print: Arctic Monkeys are an obvious headliner. Trentemøller will probably be the danish headliner, since he is playing on Orange and it's his only danish concert in 2014. Albern could be a good headliner like Jack White, when he plays the songs from his old bands. But Major Lazar doesn't look like a headliner (eventhough they probably can gather a big crowd for a late night concert on orange).
But I dont think the headliners are set in stone, since RF doesn't know which names they will book from now on (at least not all of them).

Major Lazer can't be a headliner in the end, can he/they?

Surely Roskilde know who's gonna be a headliner, its just a matter of signing the contracts and dragging it out to keep the publicity to a maximum.

It would be very ignorant to think that Roskilde just book the bands as they come.

Well, if Roskilde is somewhat like Rock Werchter in regards to their decisions on who's headlining, then Major Lazer is, in fact, headlining. Rock Werchter have them above both Pixies, Franz Ferdinand and Jack Johnson, who have all previously headlined Roskilde.

So if Daft Punk offered to play for free at RF in 2014, RF would say: "Sorry but we have no room for you" . I find that quite unlikely.

I was just commenting on your quote that Roskilde Doesn't know many of the bands that they book from now on.
Its more likely that they are in negotiations with the rest of the bands on the poster.
Remember Prince who was announced a week or two after the poster release because the contract wasn't signed when the poster was released.

Some festivals like Coachella and Glastonbury announces all the names at once, others like Ultra has 3 or 4 big announcements and then we have festivals like Werchter and Roskilde that are just dropping many of the names prior to the poster release because it creates a buzz for the festival.

The names they are announcing is probably those artists where they have negotiated all the details like price, date, stage allocation etc.

Like you say then I'm sure that they keep some money to as late as possible if something exciting happens, that's why we usually have 20 or so new bands announced in May and June.
But if all 44 millions are used when Daft Punk offers themselves then they have to work for free icon_biggrin.gif

So I've been through Damon Albarn's "Dr. Dee". I don't think I'll do it again. It was really difficult to not skip anything.
