roskilde-2016

Roskilde Festival have revealed their full line up for the 2016 event – and it’s absolutely HUGE!

Denmark’s legendary music festival takes place at the end of June/beginning of July of each year, and always presents a brilliantly curated mix of rising talent, household favourites and international mega-stars!

This year has proved to be no exception, as the festival today reveals 105 more bands set to play the 2016 event (find the first batch of announced artists just here). That means that altogether, 179 artists from 30 countries will be performing at Roskilde Festival 2016, including a headline set from local superstar and previous Nordic Playlist curator !

Other Nordic names that are lighting up the line up include Sweden’s Miike Snow, Anna Von Hausswolff and Silvana Imam, Have You Ever Seen The Jane Fonda Aerobic VHS? from Finland and Norwegian sensations Aurora, Highasakite, Gundelach and KAKKMADDAFAKKA. Iceland’s Júníus Meyvant and Reykjavíkurdætur will also be making waves at the festival, while more than 40 Danish acts have been confirmed including Choir of Young Believers, Blaue Blume, The Entrepreneurs, Liss and many more…

Here’s what the festival’s bookers had to say about this year’s programme:

“You’ll find stories about the young headliners having climbed from the smaller stages at the festival to become global superstars. About legendary acts that are ever so relevant with a great mixture of old classics and new material. About the rising stars of tomorrow that will meet a huge crowd for the first time in their career and some of whom we expect to return to bigger stages in the future…”

We’ll bring you more exciting news about that soon, but for now, remind yourself of this fantastic festival by checking out our video playlist below – and get your tickets to the event by clicking just here!
