SIVERT HØYEM (NO)

Saturday 07.07.12 - 01:00 - Odeon

Madrugada was one of Norway's biggest rock bands. Back in the band’s heyday, you really paid attention to vocalist Sivert Høyem’s baritone that made you think of a Norwegian cousin of Nick Cave or Michael Stipe from R.E.M.

Høyem still produces grandiose Scandinavian rock full of inner drama. On the Norwegian’s fourth album, Long Slow Distance, he has found inspiration in surprising places (Høyem mentions German kraut rock and French pop as some of them), and the synthesizer often knocks on the door in Høyem’s stormy songs in minor.

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.
