Faith No More
Faith No More are an American band formed in 1979. From the release of their first album, We Care a Lot, they have occupied a special place in many metal and rock hearts. Although the band had several line-up changes in its early days, Faith No More became most famous after singer Mike Patton joined in 1988. Patton’s charismatic stage performance joined beautifully with the funky and experimental metal of the band. With 1989’s The Real Thing and 1992’s Angel Dust, the Californians released two classic albums. With singles like ‘Epic’ and ‘Midlife Crisis’, plus their cover of Commodores’ ‘Easy’, Faith No More have managed to attract a great following.
Since 1971, Roskilde has been one of the largest European music festivals. The strong lineup includes 175 acts performing on six different stages. From rock and metal to hip-hop, electro, dance, world music, and other arts, everything is represented. Every year, the festival attracts crowds of over 80,000 people to the small Danish town of the same name.
