DBA prices are going down all the time (seen 1000 kr.!), and the currently pretty mixed weather forecast does not help. On a positive note some of my friends are considering going now, if they get a hold of a ticket at half price from someone desperate, who just wants to cut their losses.
As many of you guys I dig deep in the program each year and find stuff I like, so this year was not much different from other years and I still think Roskildes program surpasses anything in Denmark a lot. That being said, not selling out is the best evidence, that the booking team have not done a good enough job. Especially loosing Radiohead, SOAD and Jamiroquai comes to mind - With ATCQ and Blink cancelling (and getting mediocre replacements) the line-up seems stripped from wow-bookings besides Foo Fighters, and might also have send a lot of tickets back on the market.
Losing track of the ball unding the post? Ice Cube got a awesome fantastic reception on facebook so no he where not a mediocre at all. And come on I know some ppl on this forum love Jamiroquai , but that they not have done shit and it will be a big flop at Smukfest.
And can we stop using the word losing about all bands not booked? Roskilde did not lose Radiohead, they never had a chance. Radiohead pick what they want. SOAD they might have lost.
A problem is that Copenhell is selling so good again and this year not to so many old ppl like last year and it is a problem that Copenhell and Roskilde is clashing again. 1 time where ok for some, I know a lot of ppl that wont to the overlap again. I would not if I had, had to pay for the festivals
But sure the bookes is missing a lot of good stuff, but we say that all year, selling out or not
