NINE ACTS CONFIRMED FOR NEW ‘GLORIA’ STAGE AT ROSKILDE 2011
Roskilde Festival’s new stage, Gloria, will be visited by nine new and very different acts, all of whom deal with more toned-down atmospheres.
Roskilde Festival offers many different musical impressions. In today’s announcement organisers focus on the more quiet, thoughtful and soothing impressions. Today’s music package contains nine names, all of whom will perform at our new stage, Gloria. With room for 1000 people, the stage can deliver very intimate experiences.
ACORN FALLING (DK) is a fascinating and dark mixture of ambient and goth. The mastermind is Lars Kivig who brings to Roskilde Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds percussionist Thomas Wydler and Current 93 cellist John Contreras.
DESOLATE (DE) is dubstep with German roots. Desolate is ready to deliver minimalistic electronica with clear references to chill-out and deep house.
KEMIALLISET YSTÄVÄT (FIN) has a point of departure in folk music, which they remodel in short instrumental songs, built up by simple repetitive riffs and noisy drone scapes.
ROLL THE DICE (S) is a Swedish duo who produce melancholic soundscapes with their electronica. You can hear creaking and crunching sounds while humming rhytmics move the music forward.
JOHAN SARA JR. (N) delves into the traditional Sami way of singing, joik, to which he adds elements from both electronica and jazz. The result is a hypnotic and organic hybrid of tradition and new ideas.
SVARTE GREINER (N) is the exploration of a dark and disturbing universe. Lots of drones and other sonic atmospheres take you into a unique and frightening world.
TU FAWNING (US) go exploring several decades of folk music. The Americans are armed with a bass drum, string instruments and a refreshing musical recklessness.
VALBY VOKALGRUPPE (DK) is a a female, a capella group. In concert you will hear both sudden primal screams and improvisations.
WALLS (UK) are soft, blurry, beautiful and hypnotic electronica that will ease your mind and soul. Look forward to glitchy beats and German inspirations such as Tangerine Dream.
Orange opening act is revealed tomorrow – Tune in again tomorrow when we reveal who will open Orange Stage in 2011.
