KARPE DIEM (NO)
Sunday 07.07.13 - 14:00 - Arena
A Hindu and a Muslim, Chirag Patel and Magdi Ytreeide, two very untraditional Norwegians of different heritage than European have really seized the day. Karpe Diem are more or less national heros, in the eyes of all who wish for a tolerant and benevolent Norway. The two guys play festive pop and straight forward hip hop with Nordic phrases and sympathetic views combined with large amounts of humour. The duo has produced a long line of hit singles like it was oil from the underground. Even on stage these two guys are already a kind of veterans despite the fact that they are only around 30 years old.

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.
