Roskilde Day Three (Saturday)
Saturday came with all it’s glory. The day started with a bit rain, but it soon dried up. The head however was not feeling all too well..
After some late food and a few glasses of champagne in the media city/backtage village, The Boss aka Bruce Springsteen entered the Orange stage. With an amazing marathon set he – and the E Street Band – spellbinded the audience. Even from a distance it’s no wonder why they call him “The Boss”.
Off to a small beer break and then we headed for Bon Iver. Like so many others I’ve fallen in love with his feeble yet powerfull voice and the sweet little melodies. And they worked surprisingly well, even on a larger stage as Arena and in front of a pretty big audience.
Beer time again! But then we had a hard decision to make. Go see Mew, Reptile Youth (how in the last minute replaced Penguin Prison) or Paul Kalkbrenner. We decided to see Reptile Youth and got a nice spot at the front of the stage. And what a show. The boys deliverd as always and lead singer Mads (and the rest of the band for that matter) threw themselves into the gig 120 %! A pleasure!
When Reptile Youth finished, Mew was still playing and we caught a few of their last tracks. Not really in the mood for Specktors I ended up at soul-funk artist Lee Fields’ concert at the Odeon stage around 03:30. I was happily surprised by he (and the bands) energy and awareness of the crowd. I didn’t really want to leave, but it had been a long day and around 04:15 I left the festival area and headed for bed!
