Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes

Pretty satisfied sofar!


Regarding Tame Impala -> I was of the exact same opinion as you until I actually gave the new album a proper listen. It is far more groovy and I think the melodies and the song writing have also improved a lot. It's clearly one of the best albums of 2015. Give it a listen, and if it's not your style, then don't prioritize the concert :).

EDIT: Give Destroyer a listen as well. The latest two (3) albums are amazing :D


Great, I will give Tame Impala a chance starting with the new album! Thanks. And also thanks for the recommendation on Destroyer! I'll give it a fair try.
Making this list made me a bit more positive about the line-up. I already have over 10 bands on my top two categories wit 1/3:d of the bands announced, so I guess there´s still hope. The bad thing is that majority of the bands are in big or semi-big letters and the small letter names (they´re always the best ones) are not that good this year. Hoping for improvement on that department.

They were quite bad. Had enough in 15 minutes. Maybe it would´ve been better in the night-time.

Really think the headliners and subs fit a too small niche so far, and not one I personally like... I would say I have pretty broad musical taste, but the subs and Headliners don't really real to hit that spectrum at all. I think the subs and headliners are too focused on indie and rock/"soft metal". This could very well change, but I don't it will that much. I am really missing the "Lamb of God" type booking at this moment, and I hope this might come in the form of Gojira, and one more metal band of this magnitude and power would be very nice imo, as I think the metal of this year is a bit on the softer side. Something like Meshuggah, Cannibal Corpse, Origin, Nile or Bloodbath would be really good to balance it out. Also really hoping for a solid legend headliner like Lionel Richie.

I was so looking forward to that as I had been listening a lot to 'Innerspeaker'. It was just a really unfocused show which felt more like a jam session than a concert.

I think they have improved since then though. I'm going to watch them on Wednesday and will report back.
They can put on a great show:



I guess they have improved a lot over the years.

Okay just an update. I went and saw them in the Falconer Hall yesterday and had a great time. The setlist was great I thought, about 50-50 old songs and songs from 'Currents'. I was very happy to hear 'This Is Not Meant to Be', 'Desire Be, Desire Go' and 'Why Won't You Make Up Your Mind?' as those are basically the songs that introduced me to Tame Impala back in the 'Innerspeaker' days. They also played several songs from 'Lonerism' and 'Eventually' was pure magic. I'll definitely catch them at Roskilde again. :D
Good to hear! Hopefully they stay good live, and don't go back to being bad again. Will maybe check them out then - if I decide to show up.

0 must-sees for me after the full lineup is out, it will be an easy summer with lots of time to socialize, party, enjoy festival life, and not having to look too much at the schedule or fear missing out anything musicwise.
All these lists and no one has Odesza anywhere. You all are missing the boat. They are fantastic, especially live. Blowing up here in the States.

Anyway, I'm an American traveling through Denmark when Roskilde is happening, so I figured why not attend a day? I'm a multi-year Coachella vet and would love to see a European festival, but can only attend Friday. So my list is abbreviated.

Must:
Neil Young
M83
Badbadnotgood

Want:
James Blake
Tame Impala

Might:
Mac DeMarco
Peaches

There are a lot of names I don't know yet so this list will likely change. Hoping to add a few more because the day looks a little light for me.
