Chase & Status confirmed for Roskilde Festival 2013

Electronic headliner is joined by Kenton Slash Demon and Om Unit.

Thanks to today’s confirmed acts, we’re not only giving you a proper electronic party on Orange Stage, designed to burn more calories than any normal workout; we’ve also filled the last few empty slots on our Apollo stage. “We can hardly wait for another sweaty rave-performance from a band who also packed the Cosmopol stage in 2011,” says booker Anders Wahrén. 

CHASE & STATUS (UK) show us how electronic music can take the energy and high adrenalin levels from punk and metal, and turn it into parties that boil with equal amounts of intensity. In 2013, they’ll be taking on Orange Stage with new music and an even bigger show combining the best parts of drum’n’bass, dubstep, pop and rock in a magnificent collision.

KENTON SLASH DEMON (DK) is the night-clubbing side-project from  Jonas Kenton and Silas Moldenhawer from When Saints Go Machine.”Kenton Slash Demon have already proven their worth, so in all fairness we could have booked them sooner than we have. But sometimes you just fall in love with what’s been standing in front of you for a long time,” says booker Claes Roepstorrf, responsible for the electronic acts at Roskilde Festival.

OM UNIT (UK) draws his inspiration from sounds such as dubstep, instrumental hiphop and jungle. Especially the latter, well-known sound of 90’s electronic music was what got producer and dj John Coles going when he was just a teenager and first threw his love on electronic music. Today, his mix of various styles is right up there with those that define the future of London bass music.
