Roskilde 2013: Photoblog

As the days of the festival are rolling and the music playing, the art is unfolding. While the thick bass vibrates in the soil and the largest part of the festival goers are concentrated around the stages, many people also seek the arts site of Roskilde Festival - and there are lots of things to explore, from extravagant interactive constructs to quiet and meditative blowholes.

Friday evening at 6pm Nielsen Sisters (former Das Beckwerk) performed at The Velvet State. 
The Velvet State was at that point brought to silence (as silent as it can possibly be at the festival) and people sat, blindfolded on the grass, listening carefully to the very expressive and "cutting" concert performance of Nielsen Sisters.

Right beside the Pavillon scene, the great construct made of thousands of hula hoops, by DAK (Dansk Arkitektur Center), DS16 (UK) and Roskilde Festival, hangs above the festival goers, to whom it has already become a special spot to meet up and to hang out.

In the Dream City the Dome has gone from being a gray football-like thing to a more colourful presence among the many tents and people who camp there. The new look of the Dome has brought an interesting change to the internal impression of it, as the painting of varied colours runs down the walls.

The Tribune wall at the Orange Stage has this year been created by Ron English (US). A variety of styles and expressions are showing a good handful of the many musicians performing at this year's festival, as a tribute to music, to street art, to irony and to creativity.
