OF MONSTERS AND MEN (IS)
Friday 05.07.13 - 18:30 - Arena
Of Monsters And Men's grandly orchestrated folk pop is loaded with hands-in-the-air joy of life, clapping of hands and wonderful sound of horns, and it has fallen right into the grace of an international audience.
The five man collective of multi-instrumentalists fills the space of the stage with a feeling of community, which is the perfect match for the joyous crowd at a festival in the summer.
The voices of Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttirs and Ragnar “Raggi” Þórhallssons suit each other beautifully and with their dark nature poetry they create an unmistakably Icelandic feel. Of course, the Icelanders already consider Of Monsters And Men a national treasure.

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.
