Full House At Roskilde

Further confirmation that the Nordic festival season has started in rude good health comes from Roskilde, which had sold all its 75,000 tickets with 10 days to spare.

With Sweden Rock and the same country’s Hultsfred Festival having already sold out, and Norwegian Wood and Finland’s Provinssirock both doing very good business, it seems there’ll be very few unsold outdoor tickets in Scandinavia this summer.

Among the main acts at Roskilde June 29th to July 2nd are Roger Waters, Guns N’ Roses, Scissor Sisters, Morrissey, Deftones, Tool, Placebo, Kanye West, Franz Ferdinand, Bob Dylan, Arctic Monkeys, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, The Strokes, Kaiser Chiefs, and Editors.
