I have been very pleased with the line-ups since 2009, except last year. Still, last year, there weren´t many if any gems hidden in smaller letters while there´s usually plenty. So, I hope there´s not a trend. And it´s not just Roskilde, there haven´t been such explosion of great underground music in Finland either that took place 3-5 years ago. Or maybe I just have seen it all...
The headliners last year we´re actually quite good compared to other festivals. RHCP, PJ Harvey, Neil Young and LCD is a lot of bigger bands for me in one festival. I usually settle for 2-3 Orange stage acts. Not that good in Roskilde standards, but as everybody knows, the competition is a lot fierce these days.
And in Radiohead´s case, they are probably a Scorpio band, that will go where the corporation leads them. I hate that bullshit, every festival just ends up the same and it´s getting harder for Roskilde to book.
But let´s see what we´ll get. I am always worried at this point, so this is nothing new. And as I said I´m coming anyway, so if it´s more party less music, then so be it. (I usually don´t drink much in the music days, but run from stage to stage all day long.)
