for, it being summer, but festivalarrangørerne sitting still and sweating around the country. They are desperate for headliners. The real headliners.
many of them got wrong. Supremely the worst of it at Smukfest, which has the country's most expensive partoutarmbånd to 2695 dollars. Currently called headliners Thirty Seconds to Mars, Suede and Martin Garrix. It is disastrous and makes a mockery of the guests, who bought all the tickets, since only four Danish names were revealed.
increased the ticket price by almost 20 percent to 1895 crowns. The official explanation is that the artisternes fees increases. The inhabitants of funen, however there seems to get very little for the money. Swedish House Mafia is a meganavn within the house, but otherwise the poster is mainly packed with døgnfluepop.
NorthSide in Aarhus, manages yet to match the later years of great programs. Bon Iver blew not exactly the roof of the Royal Arena in the autumn, and if it goes as it usually is when an artist requires something of Ådalens audience, so knevrer poptøserne the concert into pieces.
the superstar, all just to see. The Cure was killing in 2012, while the Cardi B and Travis Scott immediately neither have the repertoire or the format to take the Orange. Robyn is a super star, but out-of-date Mws is a sign of inadequacy as a headliner.
however very sensible out on the more nicheprægede festivals Copenhell and the Heartland, while the Barrels should soon be pulling something huge up of cowboyhatten.
, Rammstein and Metallica dropper festivals of the year and player stadionshows instead, but the ones we have, indeed, also like seen. Many times. Which is another problem for the organisers. The present echoes of a rehearing.
fewer kvalitetsnavne at the same time that there are more festivals, so the quality of the individual festivals are being diluted. The increased competition on the topartisterne pushing the fees up, thus increasing the fares. The audience will, therefore, less substance, more expensive tickets.
CAN the only book the names that are on the sommertogt in Europe, and some years the supply is just worse than the other. 2019 looks like a regular lorteår. Festivalgiganterne around Europe have also provisionally weak lineups. Glastonbury has Stormzy as a headliner!
Bob Dylan and The Who are in the neighborhood for the summer, but quite worrying, it seems indeed absurd to imagine the legends among the festivalnavne, which is published in denmark. The nubile kernepublikum would probably say ’who?’.
improvements in the coming months. In fact, it can hardly be worse.
