FRANK FAIRFIELD (US)
Thursday 04.07.13 - 17:45 - Gloria
He is in his 20s, not from the 20s. Still, Frank Fairfield sounds like a poetic yokel from between the two Great Wars.
The young songwriter and music archaeologist lived more or less like a bum in California, but he was discovered by those able to recognize his potential. Today, he supports Fleet Foxes on tour and puts out acclaimed records of heart break, whiskey, poverty and impending collapse. The young gentleman garnishes his rustic Americana with plenty of banjo and potent violin.

Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
