The 23 first artists have been added to the line-up for the 50th edition of the Danish non-profit festival. Other new acts include HAIM, ST. VINCENT, FONTAINES D.C., IDLES, ARLO PARKS and Danish rising stars ERIKA DE CASIER and JADA.
Following two cancelled editions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Northern Europe’s biggest festival is set to return in 2022 with yet a diverse and contemporary lineup offering the stars of today and tomorrow and everything in-between from all corners of the world.
Dua Lipa and Tyler, The Creator are exactly the artists who can create the euphoric and memorable Roskilde experience that we have missed for far too long. We know that the artists have missed their audiences throughout the lockdown, and with HAIM, St. Vincent and Arlo Parks among our first announcements, our 50th edition of the festival is on its way to become a very special occasion.Anders Wahrén – Roskilde Festival’s Head of Programme
DUA LIPA taken the world by storm, and her smashing, chart-topping pop record Future Nostalgia, became the big, unifying pop record in the year of 2020 despite a worldwide lockdown. In 2022, she returns to the iconic Orange Stage with her infectious pop perfection for an unforgettable summer party.
Among the 23 first announcements for Roskilde Festival’s 50th edition are one of the most adventurous and uncompromising rappers and producers of this generation, TYLER, THE CREATOR, musical chameleon ST. VINCENT, hook-filled pop-rock from HAIM, and winner of the 2021 Mercury Music Prize, ARLO PARKS.
Danish acts include pop sensation JADA who is set for the night slot at Orange Stage, and internationally acclaimed ERIKA DE CASIER.
We are very grateful that almost all ticket holders have held on to their tickets through two tough cancellations. At the same time, thousands missed a chance to meet up with their friends at Roskilde Festival for the first time. The ‘Under 25’ ticket is a way for Roskilde Festival to remain a special meeting place for young people in the difficult times after the corona crisis.Signe Lopdrup, Roskilde Festival’s CEO
