Roskilde Festival 2019 completes line-up with Underworld, DJ Koze and Jon Hopkins
Denmark’s Roskilde festival 2019 completes its line-up with 67 new acts, Underworld, DJ Koze and Jon Hopkins plus a plethora of pop, rock and rap artists, writers, scientists, speakers and architects for the Arts & Activism programme. Today’s new additions join a roster of over 170 acts at Northern Europe’s biggest (and non-profit) festival, including The Cure, Bob Dylan, Cypress Hill, Travis Scott, Robyn, MØ, Vampire Weekend and many others, across 8 stages.
From Ghana to Greenland, from New Zealand to Norway, from Jamaica to Japan, artists of all sizes from more than 30 different countries will play the big and the small stages. Festival-goers from all over the world will party together in the name of charity when they explore the diverse music and arts programme at Roskilde Festival 2019.
Those favouring synthesizers, beats and samples will have plenty to look forward to with new announcements such as German darling DJ Koze, quirky Italian Giorgia Angiuli and noisy duo 700 Bliss consisting of DJ Haram and Moor Mother. A further exploration of the paths of weird will lead to Yves Tumor and the jazz adventures of The Comet Is Coming and Sons of Kemet XL, with saxophone hero Shabaka Hutchings leading both outfits.
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. DJs representing the local Danish scene this year include Ena Cosovic, Schaarup and others.
Arts, activism and solidarity – and particle accelerators
Art, social engagement and music are inseparable and all part of the full experience at Roskilde Festival. Hundreds of artists, writers, scientists, speakers and architects will inspire contemplation, spark debate and surprise festival-goers. This year’s Arts & Activism programme includes a large-scale sculpture by renowned Swiss artist Claudia Comte and a performance by American artist Isabel Lewis.
Hannah Tocicki Anbert will conduct a silent parade in the name of unproductivity, Søren Aagaard will set up a post-apocalyptic food truck and Japanese artist Tomoko Sauvage will transform water bowls into instruments, turning water into sound.
As always, there will be plenty of street art at Roskilde Festival 2019 with a programme that includes Askew One, Bacon and Zusa.
Bringing science to the festival experience, CERN and the Niels Bohr Institute will offer workshops enabling you to make a cloud or a your very own renewable charger as well as debates on topics such as future energy.
Roskilde Festival’s head of programme Anders Wahrén says:
“It feels great to finally present our programme, and Janelle Monáe is a crown jewel in a line-up I think bodes very well for our future. Not only do we have a load of great young artists of all sizes and from all corners of the earth, we also see that many of them are more socially aware than ever. From the music to the arts, debates and workshops, solidarity and activism is something that is reflected throughout our programme.”
