Roskilde festival is one of the biggest music festivals in Europe; Denmark to be precise.
This year it took place from the 27th June – 4th July and people such as Paul McCartney, Florence + The Machine, Disclosure, Pharrell Williams, Muse, Die Antwoord, Hot Chip, Jamie XX, Mastodon, Nicki Minaj, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Ryan Adams, St Vincent, Foxygen and Africa Express (Damon Albarn’s collective featuring Nick Zinner from the YYY’s, Seye Adeklan and Songhoy Blues) performed in the Kingdom of Denmark.
Africa Express performed a 5 hour set, yes you read correctly, FIVE HOURS, finishing at 4am against Damon Albarn’s will – a security guard came on stage and literally picked up Damon and took him off stage! It was in a friendly way, so nothing to worry about… Albarn looked like he was having a blast and was living it up.
