THE CURE first played Roskilde Festival in 1985, their first ever Danish show. This was the foundation of a strong relationship that has brought them back several times, and next summer’s headliner show will be their sixth visit to Roskilde Festival – the first since their triumph in 2012.
They will bring immortal classics such as Just Like Heaven, Friday I’m In Love, In Between Days, A Forest and Lullaby. Building on the relationship between band and festival, it was quickly decided that The Cure will play on the last night of Roskilde Festival 2019, closing the 49th edition with a bang.
THE CURE recently celebrated their 40-year anniversary as a band. It all started in the London suburb of Crawley, but the world quickly became their stage. THE CURE have had over 30 hit singles and have released 13 studio albums, including masterpieces Pornography and Disintegration, both acknowledged as some of the best albums of all time.
THE CURE have played Roskilde Festival in 1985, 1990, 1995, 2001 and 2012.
The first 12 first acts have already been announced for Roskilde Festival 2019, including Travis Scott, Julia Holter, Testament, Tirzah and Parquet Courts.
THE CURE will play Roskilde Festival 2019 on Saturday 6 July.
