Although the Roskilde Festival is not a “metal festival”, and is slowly moving away from being a rock festival, there is always just enough to keep people like me interested. The 2020 rendition will feature bands such as Faith No More, Deftones, Amenra, High On Fire, Nyredolk, Old Man Gloom, Elder, Youth Code, Gabestok, Eyes, Employed to Serve, Helms Alee, The Night Flight Orchestra, Oozing Wound, Bersærk, Heathe, Conjurer, Svalbard, and ORM (who has a new EP coming out tomorrow).

Bring along your daughter (as I did in 2018), and she can enjoy the likes of Taylor Swift, Anderson Paak, and Mura Masa. Just don’t ask me to name a single song from any of those artists as I can’t do it.

The stage lighting at Roskilde Festival is second to none. Unlike most metal festivals, that typically have two nearly identical stages right next to each other with similar lighting and vibe, the five main stages at Roskilde are very different, each with their own unique atmosphere.

Because it’s not a metal festival, there are opportunities to get more up close and personal with bands you love since there are probably about 100,000 people at the festival who will not be going to see the band you want to see.

Full festival tickets are still available here for about US$320, or single day tickets are about US$160. The tickets usually sell out. Last year Roskilde Festival sold out in early May.

No Orange Stage for me in 2018 :(

Roskilde Festival's Orange Stage

@orangefeeling ‏#rf17 @foofighters #rf18

The first time I went to the Roskilde Festival was 2011. On the Orange Stage that year were Iron Maiden, Mastodon, and Portishead.

The second time I went to the Roskilde Festival was 2016. On the Orange Stage that year were Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tenacious D, and Neil Young.

Last year was Foo Fighters (pictured above).

This year there isn’t a single band I want to see on the Orange Stage.

The downward spiral continues. Speaking of The Downward Spiral, NIN will be at Roskilde Festival this year, but they won’t be on the Orange Stage.

The rain stopped for the Foo Fighters’ set on Friday night, but the crowd of nearly 100,000 people couldn’t entirely avoid the elements as most were standing in mud.
