More than 100 new acts. Eclectic concerts and art from across the globe. Utopias and dreams.
In short: Roskilde Festival 2023 is going to be a spectacular event, and now you can prepare to immerse yourself in today's sounds and movements.
And let’s begin with Lizzo! The American R&B megastar played our Apollo stage when she last paid a visit to our festival in 2019, and this summer she will be headlining the Orange Stage, inviting everyone to take part in a supreme love party filled with bangers!
When hiphop legend Busta Rhymes plays Roskilde Festival, it will mark his first Danish show in 15 years!
Today’s announcement also features the phenomenal Atlanta rapper Latto who will bring her catchy hits and irresistible swagger to the festival, and D-Block Europe, the hard-hitting UK drill duo that embodies sunny vibes through strong melodies and virtuosic forays.
UK doom metal legends Electric Wizard returns to our festival following their most recent, gripping show at the Arena stage in 2014. Another legendary act on the line-up is Busta Rhymes, the iconic rapper with a razor-sharp flow that has played a significant role in inspiring and pushing acts like Kendrick Lamar and Doja Cat from an early stage.
Busta Rhymes' most recent Danish show dates all the way back to 2008, so this will be a an extremely rare appearance!
Buckle up and let Greentea Peng guide you to alternative universes with her spellbinding voice and psychedelic productions!
Music, talks and performances for freedom and dreams
Over the coming years, we will focus on ways to inspire and empower you to envision – and hence create – a better future. Titled UTOPIA, our focus reflects a belief that the best future is a prerequisite for creating a crucial turning point.
This focus will be embedded in the music, arts, talks and activist performances happening throughout our festival, shining a spotlight on topics like the fight for freedom in Iran, inclusion, and modern concepts of masculinity.
Our full festival line-up also features visionary and cutting-edge voices from across the globe like Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul, who tackle misogyny, racism, post-colonialism, and cultural appropriation straight from the dancefloor, as well as South London’s rising star Greentea Peng, and Rokia Koné, hailed as The Rose of Bamako.
Names like Chat Pile, caroline, Dry Cleaning, and Sorry proclaim in their own ways the moving relevance of rock music through new, celebrated releases, and we also offer some of the biggest hitmakers from the African continent. Take for example TxC and Uncle Waffles, who bring the amapiano of South Africa to Roskilde, the up-and-coming rapper Aunty Rayzor from Nigeria and compatriot Shaé Universe, as well as Tanzania's Siti Muharam.
