OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
The Cure will finally be back at the Danish non-profit festival where they first played back in 1985. Tickets to Roskilde Festival 2019 are now available.
The first 12 acts have already been announced for Roskilde Festival 2019, including Travis Scott, Julia Holter, Testament, Tirzah and Parquet Courts.
The Cure first played Roskilde Festival in 1985, their first ever Danish show. This was the foundation of a strong relationship that has brought them back several times, and next summer’s headliner show will be their sixth visit to Roskilde Festival – the first since their triumph in 2012.
Bringing immortal classics such as Just Like Heaven, Friday I’m In Love, In Between Days, A Forest and Lullaby, the legendary band will play the festival’s iconic Orange Stage. Building on the relationship between band and festival, it was quickly decided that The Cure will play on the last night of Roskilde Festival 2019, closing the 49th edition with a bang.
Head of programme Anders Wahrén says:
40 years of masterpieces and hit singles
