Wednesday started slow, really slow. The best way to get started is cold beers and the annual slackline tournament. Quite a show!
Music wise it wasn’t the best of days, but some of the concerts caught my attention:
Back to the weird Rising-stage. It really doesn’t fit Roskilde Festival, and it seems like it makes it difficult for the musicians. Anyway, the Aarhus based undergrund band created great chaos in the woods. The sax center of the stage made it jazzed punk, and I discovered that i like that. So, great job!
The biggest crowd I’ve seen in front of Apollo, and a crowd ready to party. The crowd basically came for one song, but it seemed like people had high expectations. It didn’t take long before those expextations turned to massive dissapointment. This was pretty much the worst “hip hop” I’ve ever experienced live. I mean, it sounds better on the radio? Anyway, it’s not his fault. S!vas has it all figured out, the problem is the booking itself and the weird fact that so many people turned up. In my opinion, this was a new low for Danish live music.
The swedish indie rebels delivered a great concert at the Rising-stage. 2 guys and 2 girls, one and a half of them could sing. The instrumental part was really could, but they are not quite there yet – definitely will be at some point. The comparrisons to Sonic Youth from Roskilde are okay, and I think they hold a great future.
Later on, we decided to take part in the party at Apollo, where the Danish trap sensation Faustix made the audience go nuts. Once again the Apollo staged impresses.
