FIRST ACTS ANNOUNCED FOR ROSKILDE FESTIVAL 2019

PUBLISHED WEDNESDAY 24.10.2018

12 artists have been announced, including Travis Scott, Scarlet Pleasure, indie favourite Julia Holter, Finnish pop star Alma, R&B revelation Tirzah and thrash legends Testament. Tickets go on sale on 30 October.


Travis Scott is one of the biggest hip-hop acts of his generation, and the release of this year’s Astroworld – his third album – has firmly cemented that position. Not only did the album top the Billboard charts, it also offers a long list of artists eager to collaborate with the 26-year-old Houston rapper: The Weeknd, Drake, Kanye West, Tame Impala and Thundercat to name just some of them.

Travis Scott has been praised for his playfulness as a recording artist and for his highly energetic live performances.

Pop of the future and metal legends


Tirzah enjoyed her breakthrough this year with the debut album Devotion, offering her own take on alternative R&B pop. Leaning more towards art-pop, Julia Holter is no stranger to Roskilde Festival: Apart from her own shows, she was part of the spectacular opening of the Orange Stage in 2016 as part of the Orchestra of Syrian Musicians alongside Damon Albarn, Noura Mint Seymali and many others. A true star of the future, Alma has found a large audience with the hit single Chasing Highs and collaborations with MØ, Charli XCX and Tove Lo.

Guitar lovers will have plenty to look forward to with spirited indie rockers Parquet Courts, and those looking for something even heavier will be happy to see thrash legends Testament return to Roskilde Festival. Those looking for rarities and extreme metal would do well to visit the double show with Full of Hell & The Body.

Fans of electronic music should make a note of highly regarded techno artist Blawanand the more cinematic Rival Consoles.
