Rosalía gave a groundbreaking performance when she visited Roskilde Festival in 2019. Now she is back, bigger than ever!
Global popstar on the hunt for new triumphs
In recent years, both Rosaliá and Lil Nas X have revolutionized the portrayal of a modern pop luminary in each their own right. In no time, the visionary Spanish singer Rosalía has become the leading global popstar, breaking cultural and musical barriers left and right with an innovative mix of flamenco pop, R&B and electronic productions.
In 2022, Rosalía proved her position with the release of her universally acclaimed album "MOTOMAMI", and she will take a huge step up at Roskilde Festival this summer when she plays the Arena stage, four years after her majestic and mindblowing first appearance at Roskilde Festival.
Since embarking on his first ever tour in the fall of 2022, Lil Nas X has been praised for his incredible live shows. In June, Lil Nas X will give his first ever show in Denmark at Roskilde Festival.
History making hip hop icon
Across the Atlantic, 23-year-old Lil Nas X has become a hip hop phenomenon and a queer icon at the speed of sound. His debut single, "Old Town Road" from 2018, spent a record-breaking 19 weeks as number one on the Billboards Hot 100, and while sitting on top of the hitlist, he came out as gay, being the first topper to do so.
Since then, he has but manifested his position and hitmaking prowess with the debut album, "Montero", and hits like "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)" and "Industry Baby". In the fall of 2022, Lil Nas X embarked on his first ever tour, selling out every single show on his way, and if the rave reviews ticking in are anything to go by, we are in for a rainbow-colored spectacle when he plays Roskilde Festival biggest stage, Orange Stage.
The acclaimed American choreographer and dancer Marikiscrycrycry was enlisted in Forbes' '30 Under 30' in 2022 for their contribution to the development of dance in Europe. This summer they will present their brand new work "DARK, HAPPY, TO THE CORE" which is made specifically for Roskilde Festival.
Art focused on dreams and hope
In addition to the new music acts we also present four mesmerizing acts to this year’s Art & Activism program with the inclusion of Marikiscrycrycry, Lise Haller Baggesen, Kinga Bartis and Daria Blum. Despite their different approaches and stylistic shapes, the four artists are united in spirit and are engaged in creating strong and diverse communities and contributing with new perspectives on impending challenges.
