The full line-up for this year's Roskilde Festival has been unveiled, with the likes of Biffy Clyro, CHVRCHES and Jerry Cantrell joining the bill.

A total of 68 new acts have been announced for the Danish fest, taking the total amount of artists in music, art and activism to 290.

Roskilde Festival's head of programme Anders Wahrén enthuses: “We continue our focus on new, exciting stars. It is important for us that our line-up is diverse – also geographically. With a name like Anitta, we now see that new stars from areas like Latin America can perform on the biggest stages in Europe.

“I saw both Anitta and Baby Keem at Coachella this year and they were some of the best performing acts over there. Baby Keem stood all alone on stage and managed to captivate the audience without a lot of hype and equipment around him. I'm sure it is one of the concerts that will be really impressive this summer as well.”

Meanwhile, of some of the up-and-coming acts on the line-up, Anders continues: “The programme on the stages Countdown and Rising is a really important part of Roskilde Festival because this is where you will find the names who will perform on the big stages in the future. The many lockdowns over the past two years have made it virtually impossible for new artists to meet an audience, and therefore we have spent more time on booking the programme this year so that we are sure to include the latest trends. I think we have succeeded and the programme for the festival’s first days is incredibly varied this year.”
