Worst line-up regarding big names ever, easily. But that´s not just Roskilde. In Finland too the festivals seem very bland compared to previous years. And I´m worried about the world music programme which doesn´t seem to be as good as usually. But I´m still going, many good bands to see on the smaller print even though today didn´t help in that department either. Lots of time for drinking this year. Warmup bands show some talent, so I´ll try to catch as many as I can.
Foo Fighters, A tribe called quest, Arcade Fire, Justice, The weekend, MODERAT/MODESELEKTOR, SOLANGE vs LCD Sound system, New Ordre, PJ Harvey, RHCH, Tame Impala, Tenacious D, Wiz Khalifa
Foog Fighters is a lot better rock headliner and much more want then RHCP
A tribe called quest vs Wiz Khalifa - Wiz might be what the young want, but ATCQ are a major hiphop legend name
And Arcade Fire, Justtice, the weekend is bigger names the most of the other site.
I will say the headliners this year is a much stronger then last year
It is an interesting discussion with the headliners, because I disagree that this years headliners are much stronger. Seems more even. Some of the headliners are easily comparable as you write:Foo Fighters
- RHCP: Foo Fighters winsATCQ
- Wiz: Big win for ATCQThe Weeknd
- LCD Soundsystem: The Weeknd win on sheer popularityArcade Fire
- Tame Impala: I think this one is close, with Arcade Fire winning due to more acclaimed albums and as they are a more exclusive booking.
After these four, I think the picture changes:
Justice, Moderat/Modeselektor, Solange looses big time to Tenacious D, PJ Harvey and New Order.
Then we have the danish headliner Trentemøller vs Mø
, where Mø wins.
In summary I think last year had a better breadth now that Solange is moved up, while this year is stronger at the very top. On another note this year also seems more pop'ish / party'ish (3 electronic headliners, Pop with the weeknd and Solange, and pop-rock with FF).
I've disregarded Neil young as I still hope that we get to compare him to some other legend act. Will be exciting with the poster release in april and see where we stand. With 8 headliners now, we can not hope for much more than 1 (max 2) additional additions to the top.
