Nordic talents ready for their Roskilde Festival debut
The talent programme at Northern Europe’s largest festival has been completed with 32 new acts, representing the best new Nordic music. Today’s additions include Auður, Lil Halima, Kops, Linn Koch-Emmery, Rosegold, Selma Judith, Z.E and Charlotte Bendiks. The full line-up for Roskilde Festival will be revealed on 27 March.
It’s almost a festival within the festival with 44 acts gearing up for their debut on Roskilde Festival’s talent stages.
These acts follow in the footsteps of MØ, Silvana Imam, Icona Pop, Iceage, Susanne Sundfør and many others who played Roskilde Festival before their big breakthroughs.
During the first three days of the festival, these stars of tomorrow will play the Rising and Countdown stages, both located in the centre of the non-profit festival’s huge camping city. Most of these acts will play to the biggest audience of their career so far.
The 32 new acts include Icelandic prodigy Auður, Norway’s Lil Halima, Swedish DIY rapper Z.E and Selma Judith, daughter of Lars von Trier and one of the most exciting new acts in Denmark, making emotional R&B while mastering the harp.
They will join already announced upcoming Nordic acts such as Norway’s Brenn., Copenhagen techno duo Funeral Future and Ea Kaya, one of Denmark’s most promising Scandi-pop talents. These artists are all making waves in their home countries and internationally, ready to take things to the next level at Roskilde Festival.
