Full Line-up Announced for Roskilde Festival 2019
Roskilde Festival have completed their 2019 line-up, with a total of 188 acts from more than 40 countries lined up to perform across 8 stages.
Taking place from Wednesday 29 June – Saturday 6 July, the non-profit festival’s 49th edition will welcome 130,000 visitors from around the world.
Having already announced the likes of Bob Dylan, Cardi B, Chance the Rapper, Travis Scott and The Cure, who headline this year’s festival, Roskilde Festival have today added a final 10 artists to complete their music programme.
Leading the latest announcement are Australian pop favourites Empire of the Sun, whose exclusive summer tour takes them to Roskilde Festival for their only Scandinavian show. They play the festival’s famous Orange Stage on Saturday 4 July, along with headliner Travis Scott, local hero MØ and Brazilian samba legend Jorge Ben Jor.
Head of programme Anders Wahrén says:
“We’re thrilled to present the last acts and a full music programme with 188 acts from all over the world.
We first tried booking Empire of the Sun 10 years ago, and we can’t wait to finally see their colourful, overwhelming show on our Orange Stage.”
Following last year’s Year of the Snitch, Death Grips are ready to conquer new ground with their Roskilde debut. The energetic industrial-noise-punk-rap trio will play the Arena stage – one of the largest tent stages in Europe – on Friday 5 July, joining Underworld, Johnny Marr and Jungle.
The punk attitude is very much alive among other new additions to the programme. Dublin’s very own Fontaines D.C. have just released their debut album Dogrel to great acclaim. They will play the classic Pavilion stage on Wednesday 3 July.
