Check out the full schedule for the 188 music acts! 10 new acts have also been added, including Empire of the Sun, Death Grips, Shame, Aurora and Spleen United.
A total of 188 acts from more than 40 countries will play the festival’s 8 stages. So who are the new additions?
Australian pop favourites Empire of the Sun are set to release a new album, and their exclusive summer tour will take them to Roskilde Festival for their only Scandinavian show.
They will play the iconic Orange Stage on the same day as Travis Scott, MØ and Brazilian samba legend Jorge Ben Jor.
Following last year’s Year of the Snitch, Death Grips are ready to conquer new ground with their Roskilde debut. The energetic industrial-noise-punk-rap trio will play the Arena stage – one of the largest tent stages in Europe – on the same day as Underworld, Johnny Marr and Jungle.
The punk attitude is very much alive among other new additions to the programme. Dublin’s very own Fontaines D.C. have just released their debut album Dogrel to great acclaim. They will play the classic Pavilion stage on the same day as acts such as Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, Ulver and Carpenter Brut.
Melbourne quartet Amyl & the Sniffers will make a racket on the festival’s smallest stage, Gloria, on the same day as Stella Donnelly, Tirzah and Crack Cloud, among others.
Shame are back at Roskilde, this time at the theatrical Avalon stage, following a diverse list of acts that day including Sharon Van Etten, Neneh Cherry, Fatoumata Diawara and Jon Hopkins.
Also announced today are Norwegian popstar Aurora, reunited Danish electro-rockers Spleen United, American singer-songwriter Sidney Gish, X-rated rapper cupcakKe and North Macedonia’s Džambo Aguševi Orchestra.
