Prepare for uber-nerdy confusion... Stages have swapped places all the time - this is from (likely very flawed) memory
. I don't have a single programme anymore except for 2012
- would be handy for all kinds of things in the history app research, but alas...
Like stevomatic says, for the last few years of its tenure, Ballroom was in the spot where Astoria replaced it - around midway (a bit further to the North) between Orange and Metropol/Cosmopol/Avalon. That's also where it was in '97 (that I'm quite sure about). But in between those years, it was in the area where Odeon would later be placed. Then for a single(?) year in 2003 (or thereabouts) [EDIT: Actually, 2003-2004], it moved to where Pavillion is now (so you remember right, Wallu). And then, 2004 or 2005 [EDIT: Actually, 2005], they swapped places - placing Pavillion where it is now, and Ballroom where it ended its days.
As for the other stages on the photo, the one towards the bottom of it is White/Deeday depending on the year. It started as White, then it started doubling as DeeDay for 1 or 2 days of the festival, and then in '95 it turned into just being DeeDay. I think the year of that photo is supposed to be 1992 or 1993, which makes the other stage (the one closer to Green) probably Blue or (more likely) Cabaret or some other non-music-dedicated stage (Blue, after all, used to be actually blue, at least I know it was in 1994/95 and later). Later, White would be in that area.
So, to summarize the past 20 years... (these are just names - e.g. Yellow wasn't remotely the same size tent from year to year).Orange
and probably Green
have been where they are now for 35+ and almost 30 years respectively (and I'm sure about the past 21 for Green).
has moved from the "hill" between Orange and Avalon to the Odeon area (late 90's), then to the Pavilion area (ca. 2003), and then back to the "hill".Yellow
started out in an area West of the Odeon area (pretty much the Skate city) - and were both around the size of Cosmopol, mid-90's:
Photo by Hunter Desportes. Red in 1995. Look familiar?
Anyway, later on, Red disappeared and a smaller Yellow moved to the "hill" (late 90's), before (in my mind) turning into Odeon and moving to, well, the Odeon area (mid-00's).White
started in the Pavilion area, slowly turned into DeeDay (92-94), disappeared (95 when it was renamed DeeDay), then reappeared as a smaller stage on the "Mor Tove's hill" South-East of Orange (late 90's). Then moved back to the Pavillion spot (early 00's). DeeDay
later split into Tech One/Two aka Tech/Club Roskilde (1999-2000), then went Dodo.Blue
(may have) started out in the "Mor Tove's" area (early 90's), then moved to the Astoria "hill" (mid-late 90's - or maybe it was always there), then moved (back?) to "Mor Tove's" (around '00), then to a spot South of the Pavilion area (which is camp ground now, ca. 2002).If
I still had the programmes (and I will get them back somehow eventually, I hope/guess), I'd add a little animated year-by-year map to the history app.
