Roskilde Festival opens for music requests
The booking proces for Roskilde Festival 2012 has started, and the audience can put their touch on next year's poster.

The audience opinion about the music programme is important for Roskilde Festival. Therefore, the festival invites everyone to submit their music requests for next year's programme through roskilde-festival.com. Anyone with an internet connection can submit their favourite acts directly to Roskilde Festival's booking office.

Roskilde Festival accepts music requests for next year's festival from 12 October 2011 and until the end of the month.

Ready to go far
Roskilde Festival's music director Rikke Øxner says about the tradition of working with music requests:

"The audience's music requests give us an invaluable knowledge and inspiration. The requests give us an impression of general trends. And if there is an often recurring act among the requests, we're ready to go far to get it booked. That was the case with, for instance, Iron Maiden and Arctic Monkeys in 2011."

Rikke Øxner emphasises that there is no guarantee that all requests will be on next year's poster – even if many people request the same act.

"Unfortunately, we're not masters of everything. So our plans don't always fit with the artists' tour calendars, and often we can't just call upon artists who aren't touring at the moment. Of course, it's always paramount that the artists we book can deliver the goods at Roskilde Festival."

You can submit up to five different band requests once via the festival's website until 1 November. All artist names have to be spelled correctly, otherwise they are not included in the festival's statistics. Therefore, everyone is advised to check the album cover one extra time before submitting.

The festival opens for music requests again in January.
