until Roskilde Festival 2014 - 29 June to 6 July


Thursday 05.07.12 - 22:00 - Odeon

The original nobility of reggae invites you to their court at Roskilde Festival. The Abyssinians’ song ”Satta Massagana” from 1969 is regarded by many as the defining hymn of Rastafarian culture.

The core members of the band are grey-haired veterans today. But The Abyssinians continue to spread the message of revolution and their sun-soaked musical genre, which during their career has become cherished far from the beaches of Jamaica.

The Abyssinians are a must see for any reggae and dub aficionado. Show up and experience the history and some genuine Jamaican legends. Hang around for the beautiful vocal harmonies and the spiritual chanting for Jah, the king of kings.  

Roots reggae from when the genre was young.
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.
