THE LUMINEERS (US)
Thursday 04.07.13 - 19:00 - Odeon
At some concerts singing along and bursting out in excitement seem just natural. This is the case in the company of The Lumineers.
Their stomp-and-clap folk rock is conquering the world at the moment. And it's no surprise that Marcus of Mumford & Sons hailed The Lumineers a personal favourite.
The band's self-titled debut was released last year and has along with a number of life-affirming concerts turned into a shooting star, not least due to their love ode "Ho Hey".
Front man Wesley Schultz' voice has a soulful sound that will take you from tragedies to swinging in the chandeliers.
The Lumineers is a band that should be playing in a small living room. The demand brings a need for a more spacious stage but no matter what, the intimacy of the music will surely fill the space underneath the tent canvas.

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.
