Denmark’s Roskilde Festival completes the lineup for this year’s festival with 53 new music acts, including 21 Savage, PinkPantheress, Amaarae, Barry Can’t Swim, Belle & Sebastian, Fridayy, Gloria Groove, Tinashe, and Young Nudy. The non-profit festival also adds many new names to its Art and Activism programme.

From June 29 to July 6, close to 200 acts will play Roskilde Festival, Northern Europe’s biggest music festival. Today, the festival presents its full lineup, with SZA, Doja Cat, Kali Uchis, Foo Fighters, and Skrillex among its previously revealed headliners.

Today’s announcement features 53 new music acts, including 21 Savage. In January, the Atlanta rapper climbed to the top of Billboard 200 for the fourth time with the album American Dream, proving once again that he is among the biggest artists in the world right now. The show at Roskilde Festival will be 21 Savage’s first in Denmark.

PinkPantheress, Amaarae, Belle & Sebastian, Tinashe and Young Nudy are also new additions, as well as Denmark’s very own Erika de Casier, who will be playing her biggest show yet on home soil.

Furthermore, festival participants will get the chance to experience Kakuma Sound, a group based in one of the world’s biggest refugee camps, playing in Europe for the first time. There’s also ritual dance from Western Java with Tarawangsa Sunda Lugina, a full-scale party with iconic Brazilian drag queen Gloria Groove, and much more to discover.

This year’s music lineup spans across 43 countries and five continents.

Roskilde Festival is the place to explore some of the biggest artists of our time next to a rich and groundbreaking musical treasure from all corners of the globe. Our lineup will undoubtedly give rise to a lot of intriguing and inspiring encounters,” says Anders Wahrén, Roskilde Festival’s Program Director.

Art and activism address big issues
Roskilde Festival 2024 also offers a wide range of talks, performances, workshops, and artworks created specifically for the festival, focusing on some of the most current themes right now. In addition to today’s music announcement, 43 acts are added to the festival’s lineup of art and activism.

Prominent additions include Denmark-based Jordanian-Palestinian artist Banaan Al-Nasser, exhibiting the art installation ‘In Memory of Home’, reflecting on who has the right to a home and a voice. The Danish artist Ragnhild May presents a breathtaking over-the-top glamour-pop performance that offers a critical perspective on music and media culture, while the Dutch-American artist Lara Schnitger focuses on the struggle for women’s equality with a hybrid of performance and protest.

At Flokkr, the festival’s stage for activistic events, participants can listen to stories from refugees, participate in workshops on biodiversity, attend a celebration of artistic and cultural diversity with a focus on marginalized LGBTQ+ individuals, and much more.

“Roskilde Festival is an eight-day celebration of community that flickers between euphoria and intimacy, between transformation and salvation. Being a non-profit festival aimed at creating a positive impact, it is important for us to present music and art that introduce new ideas and thoughts, and activism that directly addresses the way the world is and could be. I think we truly accomplish that with this programme,” says Anders Wahrén.
