Travis Scott is one of the biggest hip-hop acts of his generation, and the release of this year’s Astroworld – his third album – has firmly cemented that position. Not only did the album top the Billboard charts, it also offers a long list of artists eager to collaborate with the 26-year-old Houston rapper: The Weeknd, Drake, Kanye West, Tame Impala and Thundercat to name just some of them.
Pop of the future and metal legends
Tirzah enjoyed her breakthrough this year with the debut album Devotion, offering her own take on alternative R&B pop. Leaning more towards art-pop, Julia Holter is no stranger to Roskilde Festival: Apart from her own shows, she was part of the spectacular opening of the Orange Stage in 2016 as part of the Orchestra of Syrian Musicians alongside Damon Albarn, Noura Mint Seymali and many others. A true star of the future, Alma has found a large audience with the hit single Chasing Highs and collaborations with MØ, Charli XCX and Tove Lo.
Fans of electronic music should make a note of highly regarded techno artist Blawan and the more cinematic Rival Consoles.
