Following Monday’s additions of Chelsea Manning, Stefflon Don, Sigrid, The Blaze and many more, we now have even more news: 26 music acts have been announced for Roskilde Festival 2018!
Get ready for legends, cutting-edge shows, future stars and much more.
Spearheaded by Trent Reznor, NINE INCH NAILS is by far the most important industrial rock band. Albums such as The Downward Spiral (1994) and The Fragile (1999) are considered modern classics, inspiring waves of new acts over the past 25 years. Expect new material along with hits such as Closer, Head Like a Hole and Hurt.
Swedish artist Karin Dreijer, better known as FEVER RAY, spent 15 years redefining electronic music with her brother Olof in The Knife. As a leading figure in experimental pop, she is known for her overwhelming and provocative performances.
Shoegaze and noise-pop legends MY BLOODY VALENTINE are also back at Roskilde. With a new album underway, fans can expect both new material and the uncompromising classics.
The 1998 album Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star is one of modern hip-hop’s classics. Mos Def has since changed his name to YASIIN BEY and along with TALIB KWELI he is one of the rap heavyweights. They have announced a new album under their BLACK STAR moniker for their first ever Roskilde performance. Fans of electronic music will have plenty of reason to get excited as both FOUR TET and LAUREL HALO have been added to the line-up. They will be joined by purveyors of alternative pop SAMPHA and SUPERORGANISM.
