THE ROOTS (US)
Saturday 07.07.12 - 17:00 - Orange
Many people call The Roots the best live band of hip hop for their swing and rock band feeling. Deservedly so.
The hard-working hip hop collective from Philadelphia make their instruments glow and sound just as organic and authentic as a crackling vinyl record.
?uestlove, Black Thought and co lead the way when it comes to hip hop packed with hot neo-soul, social indignation, humour, funk and improv-minded jazz.
The Roots rarely visits Europe nowadays, and they play at Roskilde Festival exclusively in Scandinavia.
Label: Def Jam / Universal
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.
