Oh yeah, that was a real stinker! I left the concert after 30 minutes or so. It was truly horrible!

2. Jack White (Orange Stage, 2014)

Clear top 3:

1. Roger Waters (Orange 2006)
2. Kuti Brothers (Arena 2011)
3. The Strokes (Orange 2011)

I see so many great concerts at Roskilde, so they have to be really special to stand out. Below are some very honorable mentions, but not as magical as the above, and I'm still waiting to complete the top 5.

Jack White (Orange 2014)
Tony Allen (Cosmopol 2011)
Sigur Ros (Arena 2007, 2013)
Mew (several times, I'm a fanboy X-) )
Kendrik Lamar (Arena 2013)
Bixiga 70 (Odeon 2013)
Danny Brown (Cosmopol 2013)
Deftones (2014)
Spleen United (Arena 2012)
The Who (2007)
Mogwai (Arena 2014)

Biggest Disappointment:

Actually not red hot chili peppers (well yes it sucked intense ass). I'm to this day still seriously frustrated and disappointed that I did not see Tool in 2006. Young fool :(

Maybe not the best concert but the one with most orange feeling for me, Peter Garbriel 1992 I would guess.
It was not only great music but we met lots of friends, it was lit bonfires in front of the orange stage and it was simply magical!

I am gobsmacked that no one mentioned The Flaming Lips in 2000. This concert was for me, not only the pinnacle of what Roskilde has been for me – it's also the best concert I have witnessed anywhere. A humbling experience.

So my list would be something like:

1. The Flaming Lips (2000)
2. Spids Nøgenhat (2011)
3. The Chemical Brothers (2001)
4. My Bloody Valentine (2008)
5. Mikal Cronin (2012)

There's been some interesting runner-ups as well. I think the earliest Roskilde concerts by bands like Sigur Rós and Mew have been way better than the more recent ones. Mew, 2001 in some small tent was particularly magic. There's also been a bunch of whoa-wtf-experiences among the Pavilion Jr. and Apollo Countdown concerts. Lemaître in 2013 springs to mind. And De Høje Hæle in 2011.

Camp: Camp Kijafa
Miss B Haven 1987 (eller var det 1988)

Iron Maiden 1991

Nirvana 1992

Georgia Satellites 1988 (og 1989)

Prince (vistnok 2010)

Tool 2001

(Bonnie Prince Billy 2003+2008, Rage Against the Machine 1994, Clutch 2008, Electric Wizard 2014, Beastie Boys 1998)


Udvælge 5 koncerter? Jeg sidder lige og redigerer, igen. Listen skulle være på minimum 20-30 før jeg var kommet nogenlunde rundt omkring, I de forskellige genrer og årstal

Ovenstående er ikke Top 5 fedeste koncerter for mig, men det er nogle jeg husker som meget store oplevelser.

Years at Roskilde: Annual since 1994
Here is an impossible attempt of remembering all the great concerts at 24 festivals :shock:
The 10 that were just outstanding, magic, memorable, mindblowing, in chronological order (too hard to rank them):

Maceo Parker and Roots Revisited (1994)
The Roots (1995)
U.R.D. (1995)
Bikstok Røgsystem (2005)
Roger Waters (2006)
Malk De Koijn (2009)
Spids Nøgenhat (2011)
Metallica (2013)
Major Lazer (2014)
Outkast (2014)

Honorable mentions, or just some great memories:
Rage Against The Machine (1994), Spearhead (1995), Mardi Gras Brass Band (1997), Malk De Koijn (1998) Loop Troop (1998), Metallica (1999), Malk De Koijn (2002), Malk De Koijn (2003), Metallica (2003), Youngblood Brass Band (2003), Snoop Dogg (2005), Beastie Boys (2007), RubADub (2009), Prince (2010), Malk De Koijn (2012), Bruce Springsteen (2012),

Biggest disappointment: The Droogs (1997) the last minute replacement when Wu-Tang Clan cancelled :bang:
Also horrible mention: The Game (2005), probaly the worst concert I have seen at Roskilde. So bad it was entertaining to watch. :lol:
