WAR FOR YOUTH (DK/SE)
Sunday 01.07.12 - 16:00 - Apollo Countdown
The Copenhagen punk scene experiences quite a boost these days with Iceage as the internationally noted figurehead. The scene is still small. Everyone knows each other.
War For Youth is a constellation put together for Roskilde Festival, a cross between War and even-minded Lust For Youth.
The two bands have in common industrial icy synths, effects-drowned vocals and an indefinable sense of something new and dangerous. Raw, nihilistic and misplaced – like only the darkest and strangest alleys in Scandinavia sound right now.
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.
