After a week full music announcements, we present this couple of electronic acts.
With his international fame and myriad of collaborators, Trentemøller will do magic on Orange Stage.
TRENTEMØLLER (DK) is a much sought-after producer, songwriter and composer. We are likely to experience a show alternating between analogue indie rock and neon purple streams of bubbling synths, and techno beats like on his new album Lost. Trentemøller’s concert at Roskilde will be the only chance to catch this star in his home country this summer.
CYRIL HAHN (CH) turns R&B into something alien and haunted. Remixes of Beyonce, Solange, Haim and Mariah Carey have made Cyril Hahn quite a remix sensation right now. He often slows down the songs and finds new, stranger emotions by means of echo, reverb, pitch and beat tweaking, creating something quite unsettling from familiar material.
…much more around the corner!Don't expect us to take an early Christmas vacation after this intense week of music news. We are working dedicatedly to secure more strong names in all sizes and categories for Roskilde Festival 2014 as soon as possible.
SEE BAND LIST
Roskilde Festival announces music throughout this week. Today is all about US hip hop.
DILATED PEOPLES (US) are a treasured threesome among lovers of smart backpacker West Coast hip hop. Their intelligent tunes ooze integrity, grit and rebellious Rasta roots. Dilated Peoples visited Roskilde Festival back in 1999 with a rising underground profile. It’ll be a delight to welcome them back as celebrated cult heroes armed with a brand-new album.
PUSHA T (US) is back in focus. The former Clipse member has come into the fold of admirer Kanye West. My Name Is My Name is the outcome, the best album since Clipse’s peak, when the duo also paid Roskilde Festival a visit. Pusha T introduces a poppier sound than before, but he is still a tough bro who’s hooked on the dark and evil beats.
…we are not done yetEven though this week has already given us Haim, MØ, Carcass, Deerhunter, Nails and today’s two pimpin’ hip hop names, we’re not done yet. We’ll take a breather Thursday and be back Friday with more new music announcements for Roskilde Festival 2014.
We announce music for Roskilde Festival 2014 almost all week. Tuesday is dedicated to tough, harsh sounds. Our wide musical palette also contains black colours for those who love heavy music.
CARCASS (UK) are legends within grindcore and death metal. After 17 years of silence, their new record Surgical Steel rediscovers the assets that have given the band its unique status. Carcass doing Roskilde Festival will be an important event for Scandinavian fans of extreme metal in 2014.
NAILS (US) play hardcore and take no prisoners. Their 2013 album Abandon All Life delivers 10 brutal tunes in 18 minutes. Nails have something in store for all hard music fanatics – also fans of grindcore and death metal – who cherish maximum brutality and speed.
More music tomorrow It’s nice looking towards a new Roskilde season, right? Yesterday we started out with Deerhunter, Haim and MØ. Today we’ve given you a trip to the dark and brutal music genres. We look forward to introducing even more names tomorrow. Those names are American but with less punishing riffs and fast drums than today’s announcements.
Welcome to a week full of music. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday are all Roskilde announcement days – we will announce a string of bands to emphasise the diversity and the volume of our music programme.
DEERHUNTER (US) stick to the virtues of alternative rock while their fan base keeps on growing. The boys have become a household name with a series of diverse, loud and warmly melodic albums. Lead singer Bradford Cox is a rather unique phenomenon with his songwriting gifts and his flamboyant stage performance.
HAIM (US) combines soft pop and rock reminiscent of 70s and 80s radio with a tickling, sharp inspiration from more recent R&B stars. The trio constantly wins over new fans with their strong pop melodies, chilled attitude and enthralling shows – their live performances often have an emphasis on rock.
MØ (DK) has conquered countless pop fans all over the world with her snappy and street-wise electronic pop. Despite her past in punk, Karen Marie Ørsted also has the chops to perform heartbreaking balladry with a classic pop flavour. Style icons like Diplo have already collaborated with this fiery comet of Scandinavian pop.
Much more in store Don’t go too far away. Already tomorrow we’ll announce more acts. And of course, they will be completely different from today’s bands. And so it goes for the rest of the week. There’s something to look forward to for all of us.
