Swedish pop comet added to the Roskilde programme
Daniel Adams-Ray is coming to Roskilde Festival 2011. The blue’n’yellow pop sensation will also play at a special Roskilde evening along with two other artists in Stockholm on 26 May. The event is free of charge.

In Sweden, DANIEL ADAMS-RAY is on everyone's lips as the new pop comet. Now all Roskilde-goers can start getting to know the name as he is visiting Roskilde Festival this summer.

Daniel Adams-Ray’s debut album is called Svart vitt och allt däremellan and offers irresistible Motown-inspired pop music sung in a melodious Swedish tongue. Singles such as "Dum av dig" and "Gubben i lådan" have already topped the Swedish charts – and it is as if all of Scandinavia is now welcoming Daniel Adams-Ray with open arms.

Roskilde takes Stockholm
Daniel Adams-Ray is also among the performers when Roskilde Festival takes over the Stockholm venue Strand for an evening. The event takes place on 26 May when the festival presents three hot acts, all of whom also play at Roskilde Festival this summer.

Beside Daniel Adams-Ray, the Norrköping duo Little Marbles will play its acoustic-based girl pop. These two Swedish acts are accompanied by Danish newcomer Hammonds, Harrington & Destroy who play a mix of indie rock and folk rock with a punk edge.

Initiative for new music
This live event is an initiative for new music, says Roskilde Festival’s spokeswoman Christina Bilde.

”We want to show what Roskilde Festival also presents year after year, the up-and-coming young bands full of hit-potential. And we want to facilitate meetings by the live stages – we made a similar event in Norway in February, and now it’s Sweden’s turn,” says Christina Bilde.

700 free tickets
The 700 tickets to the event at Strand are completely free of charge. For more information about the event, which the festival calls ROSKILDE@STHLM, sign up for the Facebook event following this link.
