SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO (UK)
Friday 05.07.13 - 02:30 - Apollo
Since the beginning of the new millenium, James Ford and Jas Shaw have combined dance-friendly club music, experimental techno and pop bangers featuring celebrities joining in on the chorus.
Simian Mobile Disco used to be a (kind of) rock group called Simian. Gradually, however, the disco version came to rule the show and fill the dance floors. On their latest album, Unpatterns, Simian Mobile Disco have toned down the guest vocalists and serve up a purer distillation of techno, acid house and bass.
It's clear why Simian Mobile Disco have become VIPs merging the best of electronic music capitols such as London, Detroit and Chicago.

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.
