Roskilde Festival Denmark 2023 news

Roskilde Festival 2023 has shared its complete line-up with the addition of LIZZO, LATTO, LOYLE CARNER, ROKIA KONÉ and more than 100 new acts. Previous announcements feature KENDRICK LAMAR, LIL NAS X, BLUR and ROSALÍA

Northern Europe’s biggest festival, Roskilde Festival in Denmark, has completed its 2023 line-up with the announcement of more than 100 acts to this year’s billing.

Today LIZZO, LOYLE CARNER, ROKIA KONÉ and several others have been added to the non-profit festival’s 51st edition, which takes place from June 24th to July 1st.

Following last year’s huge celebration with the 50th edition of Roskilde Festival, we now kick off a new phase. This year’s line-up is put together to show that positive change is possible, which makes Lizzo the perfect act to headline our festival and close down our main stage. There is a spiritual connection between her ultimate love party and all the nooks and nuances in our overall line-up, which is notoriously world-class and always exceeds expectations.

Today’s announcement also features the phenomenal Atlanta rapper LATTO who will bring her catchy hits and irresistible swagger to the festival and D-BLOCK EUROPE, the hard-hitting UK drill duo that embodies sunny vibes through strong melodies and virtuosic forays.

UK doom metal legends ELECTRIC WIZARD returns to the festival following their most recent, gripping show at the Arena stage in 2014. Another legendary act on the line-up is BUSTA RHYMES, the iconic rapper with a razor-sharp flow that has played a significant role in inspiring and pushing acts like Kendrick Lamar and Doja Cat from an early stage.

BUSTA RHYMES’ most recent Danish show dates all the way back to 2008, so this will be a an extremely rare appearance!

Over the coming years, Roskilde Festival will focus on ways for the festival to inspire and strengthen the ability to envision – and hence create – a better future. Titled UTOPIA, the festival’s focus reflects a belief that the best future is a prerequisite for creating a crucial turning point.

This focus will be embedded in the music, arts, talks and activist performances happening throughout the festival, debating, expressing, and creating engagement in topics like the fight for freedom in Iran, inclusion, and modern concepts of masculinity.

bove all, this year’s line-up seeks to prove that change is possible, to give hope and inspire to actions in a world that is fiercely challenged. We have taken upon ourselves to help envision a better future. We would like to demonstrate to our participants the strength and potential in believing in utopias and dreaming of a better world and future. That belief can arise anywhere at the festival: from Lizzo’s outstanding pop party on the Orange Stage to a debate on life-defining struggles for freedom or in a line dance where we all dance to the beat of a common goal.
