R. STEVIE MOORE (US)
Sunday 08.07.12 - 17:00 - Gloria
With his mildly psychedelic, eccentric pop music, R. Stevie Moore could have been part of the same royal line as Van Dyke Parks, Frank Zappa and Kevin Ayers.
Instead he has chosen to record his more than 400 highly varied releases at home and earned a minor (read: way too small) name as the spiritual ancestor of modern DIY artists such as Guided By Voices and Ariel Pink.
Having spent a lifetime as the secret idol of various alternative rock bands, this silver-grey underground legend is finally ready for some spotlight.
R. Stevie Moore is "the godfather of home recording" – an independent, overlooked original whom the zeitgeist is slowly catching up on.

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.
