Perhaps the coolest of all festivals on the planet (and one of the oldest), Roskilde Festival has the credibility, history, and coolness that literally no other festival in the world has. It was started by two people in their teens back in 1971. That alone makes an interesting start. But it has existed all of these years while being a non-profit supporting ideals like culture and humanity.
Now they've announced the 2011 dates and one of the Roskilde headliners is (drumroll please) Iron Maiden. Dates are June 30 - July 3. Tickets will go on sale on December 1.
Kasabian, Vampire Weekend, Kings of Convenience, Gorillaz, Them Crooked Vultures, Patti Smith, Prince and The Prodigy were among those that hit the stage at this year's Roskilde Festival.
