THE BOTS (US)
Sunday 07.07.13 - 21:00 - Pavilion
The brother duo The Bots master punk rock'n'roll, aiming for both the melodies and the carnal groove. As a matter of course, they find an unprecedented point on the colour scheme of retro rock, somewhere in between The White Stripes and The Black Keys.
Mikaiah and Anaiah Lei have fine-tuned their skills on the electric guitar and the drums since childhood – and they released their first album when they were 15 and 12, respectively. That was in 2009.
Today, they exude an almost unnatural authority, both regarding songwriting and stage show. The Bots are fully fledged in an age when most bands are still learning to crawl.
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.
