Thursday, a day that the music lovers are really excited about, and for those who come to Roskilde just to party the festival almost ends.
Earl Sweatshirt (3/6)
I’m not a fan of letting a DJ enter the stage before the artist, and trying to warm up the crowd with songs from other musicians. With such short time to impress, and an Outkast concert lapping over, why not start out with the man we were all there for? Anyway, it’s obvious that this young rapper has an impressive future ahead of him, but by now his material still lacks some quality.
The first concert at Orange stage this year, and a great way to start! Nothing but a hit parade all the way, and hits that went right to the feet of the dancing crowd. I’ve heard some say that the sound was terrible, but as it always is at the Orange stage, it’s all about where you’re standing. From where I was standing, the sound was great! The concert had both the old numbers and their “newest” hits – everybody wins. Both Big Boi and Andre 3000 seemed like they enjoyed standing on stage, but still something was missing.
The Rolling Stones (6/6)
Seems like I don’t agree with all these cranky reviewers? See, I’ve never been a big fan of The Stones. I mean, I’ve always acknowledged their place in music history, but I sort of grew up listening to other bands from that time. But when they entered the stage, something magical happened. Keith Richards was a bit slow and off on his solos, but besides that the guys were tight! Mick Jagger made a performance like I’ve never seen a lead singer before, he was all over the stage with his incredible dancing moves. It’s like he feels music like no one else does? Truly a magical and historical night at the Orange stage.
