Roskilde Festival 2008 (July 3-6) - Yet another joke...

I thought we had hit the bottom of how lousy and pathetic a festival lineup could be in 2007. But hell no! This year they go even lower. It would actually be funny if it wasn't so sad.

On the list so far I can only see one single band that I would love to see: Grinderman. Nick Cave's dirty rock project is sure to kick some major ass, no doubt about it. But I have to compare it to the ticket price of 1650 DKK (currently: 353 USD or 221 EUR). Is it really worth it? I'm not so sure when I think back on last year's insane rain and mud hell.

The rest of the lineup can go to hell for all I care. I love hanging out at Roskilde having fun and drinking beers with friends and strangers. But seriously, if they want to kill the festival they are pretty damn close to being succesful. Two subsequent years with almost no serious rock and metal bands in the lineup.

I will have a real hard time this year deciding if I should go or if I should stay. The clever choice would probably be to stay the hell away from Roskilde Festival 2008.
