Also on stage at the Roskilde festival this year was Mokoomba, which is probably the most popular band from Zimbabwe at the moment. Bombino from Niger has been compared to Jimi Hendrix for his guitar playing. Two Ethiopian bands were featured: Krar Collective and Badume's Band & Selamnesh Zemene. The Heliocentrics from UK also provided a good Ethiopian soundtrack and Nubanour from Egypt was feautured on Gloria stage. This year the Roskilde Festival took place from 4th to 7th of July. More than 75.000 bought a ticket to the festival which also featured artists like Rihanna, Kraftwerk and Metallica.
