First fresh bands ready for talent stage
Hammonds, Harrington & Destroy, De Høje Hæle, Trust and Undergang are the first batch of bands announced for Roskilde Festival's warm-up stage Pavilion Junior.

Roskilde Festival dedicates this entire week to the Pavilion Junior stage, presenting the bands of tomorrow in Roskilde's warm-up days from 26 to 29 June. Every day – from Monday to Friday – offers new announcements.

The festival opens this week with a handful of Danish bands.

HAMMONDS, HARRINGTON & DESTROY play melodic, alternative rock with loads of catchy choruses and sing-along potential. Look forward to a rock show with a reckless, almost punk-rock attitude.

DE HØJE HÆLE play unpretentious, Danish-language punk rock loaded with attitude. The band has toured extensively throughout Europe, America and Australia. This shows that good music does not care about language.

TRUST kick in the interplanetary door to distant galaxies when they play progressive rock in true garage style. Here you will find Ozzy-esque vocals, stony riffs, cleverly dribbling drumming and tackling rhythm changes. Hot, rocking and complex at the same time.

UNDERGANG present some of the heaviest and most evil music you will hear on Pavilion Junior – or anywhere else on this planet – this summer. On the debut album Indhentet af døden (run down by death) Undergang show that they know their old-school death metal.

Audience requests are an exciting supplement
Throughout the month of January the audience submitted music requests for the Pavilion Junior stage. Roskilde Festival received lots of suggestions for acts that ought to play on the popular stage.

Booking agent Stefan Gejsing says:

”I'm impressed by the broadness in the music requests. It's an exciting supplement to my work, and it will definitely show in the Pavilion Junior programme this year.”

Roskilde Festival looks forward to presenting more acts from Nordic countries for the Pavilion Junior stage throughout this week that has just begun.
