Roskilde Festival: 1 - 4 of July, 2010
What you need to know about the Roskilde Festival? Roskilde Festival is held south of Roskilde in Denmark and is one of the five biggest annual music festivals in Europe. It was created in 1971 by two high school students, Mogens Sandfær and Jesper Switzer Møller, and promoter Carl Fischer. In 1972, the festival was taken over by the Roskilde Foundation, which has since run the festival as a non-profit organisation for development and support of music, culture and humanism. Be among 90,000 partiers who are going to hit the festival!
What you can expect in 2010? The music covers such styles as rock, Hip Hop, Metal, urban, electronic and 3rd world contemporary music. The Roskilde Festival kicks off July 1, 2010, in Roskilde, Denmark with music scheduled so far from Alice in Chains, Brother Ali, Kasper Spez and Tech N9ne, Them Crooked Vultures (members from Foo Fighters, Led Zeppelin and Queens of the Stone Age), Killswitch Engage, Circle, Japandroids, Motorhead, Gallows, Porcupine Tree and Dizzy Mizz Lizzy. The festival is going to close on the 4th of July with warm-up starting from 26th of June.
The festival campsite covers nearly 80 hectares and access to it is included in the ticket price. It usually opens on Sunday morning prior to the festival itself. Don't miss it. This massive music festival is fabulous. Last year's lineup included Coldplay, Oasis, Faith No More, Nine Inch Nails, Pet Shop Boys (that was a blast from the past thing), Kanye West and Pete Doherty - names like these will doubtless be added to the roster as spring springs. Tickets are 240 euros - not bad for parking, camping, luggage storage, 180 acts and a gazillion activities.
The Roskilde Festival is truly unique. The bands presented at Roskilde Festival are traditionally a balanced mix of large well known artists in the absolute live elite, cutting-edge artists from all contemporary genres, popular crowd-pleasing acts plus local Scandinavian headliners and up-and-coming names. Roskilde Festival is definitely more than music. The camping areas are a cornucopia of attractions, events and activities during the first four days.Good place to relax, to enjoy and to spend some of the summer days.
