They definitely did not play 12 Led Zep songs


Dazed and Confused and also short verses of Break on Trough, the One I love, Let's Have a Party are included in the song CALLING TO YOU. I think there's no need to write them because they were so short versions... Actually after intro they played some 20seconds of Immingrant Song also... I have that CD! I also attended maybe 20metres from stage that concert and I am very familiar with LZ material and you're telling me I'm talking bullshit here? You're a funny guy...!

Does "Not so sure that list is correct either." = "you are talking bullshit" in your world?

I was obviously wrong, but try and keep some perspective...

I simply couldn't remember that many Led Zep songs.
Did you read my "big post" on top of this page? If yes, then your "not so sure" and "they definitely not played that many LZ songs" means basically "You're talking bullshit" in my world, yes. But let's do not make this another retarded thread and stop this discussion. I think no one's interested (except you) the meanings of words in my world...

Ha ha ha!

You are trying to put this thing on me! :D

Rightio

No, I didn't see your "big post" I'm afraid.
I can't edit on this page, but let me add this.

I am a bit surprised you are this touchy though, given your little stunt in the "cinema" thread Yesterday (amongst many other, where you call peoples post stupid)

Some would you a tiny, little bit hypocritical

obviously...
Seems like Tool and Roger Waters are dominating the lists, both from '06.
I would have loved to see Tool.

Mine would be:
NIN 09

Other great concerts were Trentemøller 09,
Foals '11 and Atmosphere '11.
1. Neil Young 2008
2. Roger Waters performing Dark Side Of The Moon 2006
3. Beach House 2010
4. Gorillaz 2010
5. Hellacopters 2008
1. Gåte, Ballroom, 2003
2. Interpol, Pavillon, 2003
3. 2ManyDJ's, Cosmopol, 2009
4. Trentemøller, Orange, 2009
5. Radio Soulwax/2ManyDJ's/Justice (and Tiga), Metropol, 2006

Furthermore Björk and Blur in 2003, Baron Criminel in 2010 and Roger Waters were all excellent concerts.

It occurs to me that I don't care about the size of the band and/or stage.
Instead I care about the atmosphere. The feeling of being one big unity.
1973 Den Gamle Mand og Havet (The Old Man & The Sea) scheduled on main stage 01:30 the night between saturday and sunday, but program running late those first years, I think they went on about 04'ish. A pretty amasing concert while the sun penetrated a very thick fog. Great scenery.

1983 Unknown Gender on Rytmescenen friday 23:30 giving a very tight punk / funk set.

1993 Miranda Sex Garden on Blue Stage saturday 19:00. With a background as madrigal singers and street buskers, they gave a heavy / electronic / fierce violin concert.

1999 The Residents on Green giving a several hour long mega show starting midnight to sunday.

2007 Akron/Family on Astoria sunday afternoon, starting out as an intellectual noiserock outfit, and ending up as an African mega-party with around 20 dancers and drummers on stage, this was an overwhelming experience. Still a mystery, that management has slaughtered Astoria, the most inventional and broadminded scene on Roskilde - ever. Sad.

Runners-up:
1999 22-Pistepirkko. Always a great live-band. I think '99 was a better show than '93
2003 Massive Attack on Arena sunday 20:30. Apart from this, a festival with absolutely no musical highlights.
2005 The Dresden Dolls. Great punk cabaret, - also covering Black Sabbath.
2006 Roger Waters. Yes, I agree ...
2008 The Dø. Great Finnish / French duo.
As a Swede, I've missed out on growing up with Roskilde, compensating now though. From my two years:

1. Portishead 2011 - After not listening to them for almost a year, I was happily surprised by Machine Gun. Blew my mind. Wandering Star was also insane.

2. Chris Cunningham 2011 - A dark tent and a somewhat too dark projector, almost no sign og the artist himself, and still a complete trip. Jaw dropped many times.

3. Boban Markovic 2010 - The best time a group of purple overall-wearing overweight men has ever shown me. The crowd(not a few people, the crowd) singing "Caje Sukarije" as they left the tent was great.

4. Nephew 2010 - Knowing nothing about Kvamm probably helps appreciating him - that was a crazy nice show and I have only later realised how fucking surreal it must have been for him to stand on Orange, arguably the most sough-after experience for any Danish artist... DET was a great show as well.

5. Moderat 2010 - Go in when it's dark, leave when it's light out. Good times.

Runner-ups:
Deadmaus 2011, solely for the supreme light show(best appreciated from a distance)
Die Antwoord 2010, too few songs but ludicrously good at getting the sunday crowd going.
2001 - PJ Harvey/Green
2007 - Basement Jaxx/Orange
2003 - Massive Attack/Green
2012 - The Cure/Orange
2007 - Beirut/Astoria

And many many many more

Only been there twice, definitely going for the third this upcoming summer, so I should've probably waited until after that one before making this list. But fuck it, I'm bored at the moment anyway...


1. RADIOHEAD --- 2008
My first ever concert at the mighty Orange stage, and actually my first open air "stadium" size concert ever. Amazing atmosphere, nearly perfect setlist, perfect performances of the songs they DID play. The rock-show I'm still comparing every other rock-band gig to.

2. THE STREETS --- 2008
Even better atmosphere than at Radiohead the evening before. I've never felt such magical unity and shared happiness with both the fellow audience and the artists on stage, before or since. Mike Skinner still calls it the greatest gig of his life, and I'm so thankful that the ONE Streets show I got to be at before he retired, was this one.

3. PRINCE --- 2010
Felt at times like a celebration of everything I love about music. Went to some great concerts in '10, but it kinda kept missing the 'show of perfection'. And then this little genius and his band delivered exactly that during the very last show I attended.

4. PATTI SMITH --- 2010
By far the best daytime-concert I've been to at Orange stage so far. Didn't know much about her and hadn't heard many of her songs before the festival, but this show instantly made me a huge fan.

5. BROTHER ALI --- 2010
Best rap-concert I've been to so far at Roskilde, and actually one of the best I've been to in general. Ali handled the classic stripped down "one MC with his mic, and a DJ on the decks" live Hip-Hop format better than anyone else I've seen.


Honorable mentions:

Chemical Brothers --- 2008

The Prodigy --- 2010

Muse --- 2010
