This year’s Roskilde Festival is getting closer! We’re counting down days to it at Good because Danish and looking forward to seeing the Danish bands playing during warm-up days as well as the main festival event.
To get prepared properly to the most famous Danish summer festival, we decided to question some of the Danish acts from this year’s line-up about their Roskilde experience and recommendations.
Dør Nr. 13 is another band that shares some tips for Roskilde Festival with us
This Copenhagen-based band plays extremely bold and conscious music, which is valued and demanded by these, who enjoy and contemplate every single part of a song. The guitar sound and simple, but memorable melodies create a really good mix. They sing in Danish, which doesn’t stop those of us who don’t speak the language to enjoy the music.
What are you looking forward to the most about this year’s Roskilde Festival (your own performance, other bands/artists, the feeling, the food, party)?
Anders: A little bit of everything really. Roskilde is much more than just music. It’s about connecting with people, absorbing the good vibes and having a right old time. This year, of course, more than anything, I’m looking forward to playing the shit out of the Rising Stage with my friends.
Name the artists you wouldn’t want to miss at this year’s festival – Danish and International.
Actually, I haven’t read through the whole program yet. I know that our manager Sidse is working with another Danish act called Den Sorte Skole, so we’ll probably go and check them out.
Also, Danish punk legends Sort Sol are back with their first album in nearly 16 years, and, since I’ve always enjoyed their old stuff, I might as well pop down and check out some of their new songs. Also influential Danish sixties group Savage Rose is playing and apparently on a better form than ever.
On the international front, I don’t know. The Jesus and Mary Chain maybe? I’m rubbish at getting into new stuff, but I love it when it sometimes happens that I stumble into a smelly old stage tent and some new act just blows my mind completely.
So yeah, I need to have me a listen through that Roskilde Spotify playlist, really.
What is your best Roskilde experience?
There are certainly far too many to mention, but the clearest and dearest ones always are dated back to when I was very young and carefree and didn’t know a thing or two about anything.
That sweet combination of orange skies, and the music that became the soundtrack to the most important time of your life, friendships and early love acquaintances, those moments last forever.
Do you have any pro-festival attendee tips – for camping, food, music/stages and so on?
If you’re sharing a tent with your mate, and you’re going to have sex in it, make sure he’s out.
