Yet another peaceful morning at Roskilde, but this time I’m waking up to a less exciting music day.
So, time to explore some of the festivals many options. Poetry in the dome, girls playing a football tournament (including some feminist rap) – things that adds the extra dimension to the festival.
I did witness a few concerts:
My first concert at Apollo this year, and you gotta love the sound that comes from that stage. A sound that macthed Samaris quite well, however, they didn’t seem comfortable on stage. The two lovely girls seemed really fragile, nervous and often talking to each other like something was wrong. Samaris delivers good music, no doubt, but are better placed on a smaller venue with the right soundsystem.
Anders Dixen delivered a really good mix of a heavy bass and playful, comfortable soundscapes. Laying on the grass in front of the stage, and in the sun, was a really good experience. Maybe even what you can get out of a concert at that time on Apollo?
First of all, this is a really difficult concert to review. This was a huge party, and the sound and lights at Apollo deserves six out of six, same goes to the audience who went absolutely crazy. The Music, on the other hand, was terrible and unoriginal. The two guys on stage had their hands in the air more than half time, come on. I expected more from Roskilde, than giving these two the chance. But it worked, so how the hell do you review it?
After the concerts it was all about drinking beers in the camp – pretty much all night.
