Denmark’s Roskilde Festival has announced all 173 artists to perform at this year’s event – with names such as Icona Pop, Sigrid and ARY found dotting the line up!
Joining previously announced Nordic acts such as Trentemøller, Cashmere Cat, Jenny Hval, Nils Bech and Icelandic DJ Bjarki are a host of Danish newcomers and international acts. The festival’s infamous Rising Stage – which presents three days of emerging music in the campsite before the main arena opens – has unveiled a phenomenal programme for the 2017 edition, boasting the likes of Skott, IRAH and Gangly. And the rest of the festival’s stages will be unleashing the finest Nordic music over the rest of the weekend too with performances from MAMMÚT, Sigrid, Cancer and many more.
The 2017 edition of Roskilde Festival has placed particular focus on highlighting women artists that promote gender diversity, equality and civil rights, as well as bringing, in the festival’s own words, “the headliners of tomorrow” to perform at the festival.
On an international level, The xx have been selected to join headliners such as The Weeknd, Foo Fighters and Arcade Fire for one of the festival’s biggest ever line ups – so head to the festival’s website to check out all of the artists set to perform!
