Roskilde Festival has announced a new headliner: The Weeknd.
He joins a bill that already includes Solange, Blink-182, Arcade Fire, Justice, Jagwar Ma, Warpaint, Erasure, Red Fang, Neurosis, The Lumineers, Foo Fighters – marking their first time playing the Denmark festival since 2005 – Moderat/Modeselektor, Trentemøller, Angel Olsen, G-Eazy, Jenny Hval, Of Mice & Men and more.
Head of Programme Anders Wahrén says: “We have been following The Weeknd since the beginning, and it’s no secret that he’s been topping the wishlists of our fans for the past couple of years. It’s very rare for an underground phenomenon to rise to the top while staying true to his own sound and past. Being one of the biggest pop artists in the world right now, this is a very special artist, and we’re thrilled that he’ll be headlining side by side with acts like Foo Fighters and Arcade Fire.”
The event will take place from 24th June – 1st July in Denmark.
