Judas Priest And Slayer Join MBV, Radiohead, Jay-Z, And Neil Young At Roskilde ’08

By brandon / April 17, 2008

Brandon can attest, last year’s Roskilde was a glorious mud bath. We’re guessing it can’t rain as much this time around, but even if it does, the lineup’s intriguing enough that if you can find a way to get to Denmark in early July, you should definitely attend (the actual dates are 7/3-7/6). Maybe we’re talking shit, but it seems like the best overseas fests have a way with heavy eclecticism. For instance, the main Roskilde headliners include the Chemical Brothers, Grinderman, Jay-Z, Judas Priest, My Bloody Valentine, Radiohead, Slayer, and Neil Young. Then there’s also Dillinger Escape Plan, Yeasayer, Holy Fuck, At The Gates (!), M.I.A., Gnarls Barkley, No Age, Liars, Sunburned Hand Of The Man, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Tokyo Police Club, the Notwist, etc. Grab a magnifying glass and check out the poster to see some more…

Things get a bit fuzzy toward the bottom, so if you want more info you can go to the Roskilde site or download the lineup poster in a larger size (watch out, Acrobat’s gonna jump out at you).
