Roskilde Festival 2023 has announced its first 16 acts, including Rina Sawayama, Denzel Curry, Burna Boy & more

The Danish non-profit festival will be held from June 24th to July 1st next year.

Rina Sawayama, Denzel Curry, Burna Boy & many more acts have been confirmed to play Roskilde Festival 2023.

The Danish non-profit festival will be held at WHERE from June 24th to July 1st next year.

Rina Sawayama will return to Roskilde with the immense potency of her third album, ‘Hold The Girl’, which Dork’s 5-star review said, “proves she could rub shoulders with the big leagues unironically”. The Japenese-British artist just tested her live chops on a huge UK tour run, with the concluding show at Brixton Academy described by Dork as “defiant, campy and jubilant”.

Denzel Curry is set to storm on-stage with a ferocious vocal technique, delivering fiery but genuine tracks from albums like his 2022 LP ‘Melt My Eyez See Your Future’, which Dork’s 4-star review praised as, “the sort of cohesive artistic statement he’s been aching to make for years.”

Nigerian superstar Burna Boy will appear at the festival for the first time, bringing his global afrobeats to a brand new audience for a dazzling late-night performance. French pop hero Christine and the Queens will introduce his new alias, Redcar, which just debuted on Saturday’s episode of ‘Later… with Jools Holland’ along with the first material of this new era, ‘Tu sais ce qu’il me faut’.

Roskilde Festival‘s Head of Programme, Anders Wahrén, has emphasised that the line-up aims to, “create a place where there is room for diversity, and we present artists who are progressive. This is the place to go to experience music that you would not normally find at large festivals, side by side with the world’s biggest names in pop.”
