The return of Denmark’s fabled festival after back-to-back cancellation caused by COVID will also be made merry by St. Vincent, Arlo Parks, Fontaines D.C., IDLES, Kelly Lee Owens and Poppy.
AceShowbiz –Dua Lipa, Tyler, the Creator, and HAIM will headline the return of Denmark’s fabled Roskilde festival in 2022.
Organizers are planning to stage the event next summer for the first time since 2019. Both 2020 and 2021 editions were canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Next summer’s event is set to run from June 25 to July 2.
St. Vincent, Arlo Parks, Fontaines D.C., IDLES, Kelly Lee Owens and Poppy have also been named to the line-up.
“We feel a huge longing from all artists,” a Roskilde spokesman says. “They want to be out on the stages playing to live audiences again. At the same time, we are doing our utmost to deliver three years of development in one festival. Expect our festival number 50 to be a very special return to a new era. We all need that!”
5000 tickets returned after the cancellation of Roskilde 2021 will be put out for sale on Thursday, October 14.
The organizers also announced that they are targeting at young people. “With two consecutive canceled festivals, two years of festival first-timers have missed out on the opportunity to attend Roskilde Festival,” they stated. “Our numbers show that 80 % of our first-timers at Roskilde are under 25 years of age.”
“Therefore, we’re earmarking an additional 5000 tickets for young people under the age of 25 (more specifically, you must be born after 3 July 1997), so that our festival can remain a place where young people can enjoy the special Roskilde community. It’s extra important in dire times like the present.”
