Robyn has recently been added the line-up for Northern Europe’s biggest festival, and another 18 acts are now ready to join her. From legends to newcomers, from boyband hip-hop to mean metal, the new additions reflect the diversity of Roskilde Festival.
The new faces of pop
Self-declared boyband hip-hoppers Brockhampton are also familiar with the top of the charts: their new album debuted as no. 1 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart. The collective is destined to make hip-hop fun again, uniting hip-hop and pop as one of the best live acts in America.
Jungle are no strangers to Roskilde Festival, having played – in their own words – one of their most important ever shows at the non-profit festival back in 2015. Fellow Brit Flohio will light things up with her mash-up, mixing grime with industrial techno, clubby hip-hop and much more. The 25-year-old rapper is one of several future hip-hop stars to be announced for Roskilde Festival, with Octavian, Denzel Curry and Joey Purp also gearing up for their first shows at the festival..
Delicate icons and no-nonsense thrashers
Those looking for more guitars, shaking amplifiers and shredding can happily punish themselves with hardcore legends Converge. If the need for a full-frontal attack is even greater, Texan thrashers Power Trip is the real deal.
Head of Programme Anders Wahrén says:
“Pop music can make people come together, and with Christine and the Queens we have one of the most important popstars and role models out there. Her shows are not only amazing concerts, they are statements for anyone who feels like she or he doesn’t fit in. In a very different way, Brockhampton also deliver a strong sense of community. I just saw them at a festival in Los Angeles, and authorities had to close down the show because so many people wanted to see the show!”
32 artists have now been announced for Roskilde Festival 2019, including The Cure, Robyn, Travis Scott, Julia Holter, Blawan and Tirzah. A total of 180 acts will play across 8 stages at Roskilde 2019, which lasts for eight days between Saturday 29 June to Saturday 6 July. Find out more and book tickets at Roskilde-festival.dk.
