Rock ‘n’ Politics
Sat May 6th 14:00 | Dokk1 – Lille sal
We know the protest singer and initiatives like Live Aid, whose political and social statements were loud and clear. The protest singer no longer has the same trenchancy as the popular music of the 21st century is dominated by mainstream pop with pre-chewed lyrics. But does that necessarily mean that today’s musicians no longer have views or promote these to their audience? To answer that we have invited music journalist David Fricke from Rolling Stone Magazine, radio host, DJ, record label and radio channel owner Le Gammeltolf, and journalist Carsten Ortmann.
