Psychedelic music meets Egyptian Shaabi. Cumbia merges with Indian sounds. In the glow of illuminated tents, among DIY sound systems and camp flags, guests are urged to sink into soft floor cushions and Fatboys in RAGNAROCK’s special exhibition about Roskilde Festival. Here, visitors can immerse themselves in the sounds and narratives of the Festival’s work towards promoting global music – not only at the festival itself but also on the national and international stage.
In 1996, Peter Hvalkof was hired by Roskilde Festival to book music with a focus on danceable genres that stood out from what you would otherwise experience at the festival. This proved to be the first step of what would become a 25-year endeavour to create a platform for culturally diverse music from all corners of the world.
In tonight’s session, Hvalkof will join musician, DJ and journalist Rasmus Poulsen for an inspirational conversation. Through words as well as music, they will explore the process of developing a festival that also uses celebration and cultural exchange to strengthen the many local voices around the world.
Peter Hvalkof became involved in live music as a teenager. He has retained his early links with live music throughout his life. His principal focus in music is the 100% non-profit Roskilde Festival held in Denmark early July every year since 1971, one of Europe’s biggest music festivals. Hvalkof has held several important Roskilde posts, from programmer and booker to assistant manager. He was also deeply involved in other projects related to live music, such as hosting Womex 2009 – 11 in Copenhagen; serving for 11 years as music director at music venue Global CPH, which in 2016 merged with Copenhagen Jazzhouse into Alice CPH.
In august 2020 he retired from professional music life but is still voluntary member of the booking team at Roskilde Festival.
Rasmus Poulsen is a well respected music journalist, DJ and musician. As a musician he is known by his stage name Raske Penge and is one of the leading figures in the wildly popular wave of dancehall and reggae that has been splashing all over Denmark. He is celebrated for his somewhat hardcore music and conscious yet humorous lyrics. Together with his regular stage partner Klumben he has had one of the biggest Danish reggae-hits to date, the smokers anthem “Faxe Kondi”.

Peter Hvalkof blev i 1996 hyret af Roskilde Festival til at booke musik med fokus på dansevenlig musik, der ikke lignede noget af det andet, man kunne opleve på festivalen. Det blev startskuddet til 25 års arbejde med at fremme og udvikle en scene med musik fra alle afkroge af kloden og med mangfoldige kulturelle udtryk.
I aftenens videnssession mødes Hvalkof i en stemningsfuld samtale med musiker, DJ og journalist Rasmus Poulsen. Her vil de gennem både ord og musik dykke ned i arbejdet med udviklingen af en festivalscene, der gennem fest, dans og kulturmøder også arbejder for at fremme og udvikle de mange lokale musikudtryk derudefra på internationalt plan.
