I dig deep in the programme and try to turn every stone, watch live performances, go beyond the five top spotify-favorites etc. (exept with the most obvious self-absorbed auto-tuned rappers - they get the knife from the get-go). Every year I find someting - old and new - that I and often also people I introduce it to, just know is going to be amazing. This year it has been very hard to dig out these nuggets - not to mention "selling them" to fellow potential Roskilde-goers. Most of it just doesnt sound like live-experiences you would otherwise pay to see! I sense an overall "meh"-feeling among many already holding a ticket, and so I guess, very likely also among the ones still in doubt.
Around 450 tickets are selling below original price on dba atm. 1400 is lowest price - and thats been up for a couple of days.
So I fear that 17 will not sell out, which is bad for the festival on so many levels, and annoying to me, because I have a spare ticket to lose a bunch of money on... Maybe it will chance as soon as the campsite opens. I hope so!
I dont believe the Blink/Hellacopters-controversy has much to do with this. Though if ONE band can make that difference, your problem is the immediate quality of the rest of the package - not that one band cancelling.
At least perhaps there is a lesson for next year then. Dont leave the candybag open with Copenhell still in the room.
This exactly. I too dig deep into the program and can't get to the festival before friday evening. And it doesn't bother me much. Just a couple of gigs the first 2,5 days I would have seen: NAS, Red fang and hellacopters/blink182
How many tickets are they selling this year? More than last year?
It's the exact same amount of tickets on sale as the previous many years.
