In 2020, the stages disappeared. Roskilde Festival was cancelled and all the promising upcoming acts that should have played the festival lost a unique opportunity to show their worth.
Now we're bringing the stages back.
Or rather: We're bringing the live music back.
Eight names from our talent programme play live in a special app using AR technology. You run the whole thing through your smartphone.
Using augmented reality technology, the app combines live recordings with your own environment. By using the screen on your phone you can place one of the eight artists anywhere and watch them perform.
Create a stage and win a hotel stay including concerts
What about the stage? It’s your job to make one so that the artists have something to perform on.
If you create your own stage and then place the artists on it (you can downscale them to the size of a beer can) and capture the whole thing in a screen recording and share it with us, you enter the competition for a hotel stay with an extravagant concert experience included! You decide whether you want to build/construct your own stage or find an environment that you can use as a stage – that’s entirely up to you.
In collaboration with Tuborg and Hotel Kong Arthur in Copenhagen, we offer 15 prizes consisting of the following:
Submit your contribution by 7 February at the latest.
*The concerts are performed in a closed courtyard environment so that you experience them from the balcony connected to your hotel room. In this way, we ensure distance and a responsible event.
Disclaimer: In case the restrictions render it impossible to carry through the concerts on 12 March, we'll try to move them to another date – and if this is not possible we'll find another prize.
The app is part of 'Sounds Like Roskilde', which is our initiative to generate attention to the upcoming acts who should have played at the festival. They are also featured on a 4xlp boxset. Read more on roskil.de/soundslikeroskilde
Sounds Like Roskilde is made i collaboration with Tuborg and the Tuborg Foundation.
