Denmark's new pop tunesmith returns to Roskilde 

One of Denmark's biggest pop talents will be back at Roskilde Festival.

Hjalmer has proven his worth during the past couple of years. In confident style, he has entered the scene as a cheeky and charming pop tunesmith who knows how to aim just right with his catchy songs, straight to the point and with his heart on the sleeve. Hjalmer sings to all beating hearts who know everything about infatuations and heartache. 

Hjalmer released his first EP in 2017, Skabt til at være ung (‘made for being young’). A series of singles have followed in the wake and they have elevated Hjalmer's shining star still higher up on the pop sky. 

The 24-year-old artist was a frequent name on the Danish live stages where he has finetuned his stage presence. A peak moment was in 2019 when Hjalmer played on our Rising stage for upcoming talent. In front of him was a sea of people who sang and danced along to all the songs that Hjalmer and his four band mates delivered from the stage. A fine, popular moment!

Hjalmer is ready to gear up, and it is an obvious choice for us to invite him into the main programme for Roskilde Festival 2020. 

Hjalmer has lots of spanking new songs in the bag. In November, he released his debut album, Midt i en drøm eller noget der ligner (‘in the middle of a dream or something that resembles’). It is full of songs that appeal to massive singalongs in front of the stage.
