Cardi B, Jorja Smith and MØ to play Roskilde Festival 2019


28 artists have been added to the music and arts programme for the Danish non-profit festival, Roskilde 2019. Other new acts include Cypress Hill, Bring Me the Horizon, SOPHIE, Khruangbin, Fatoumata Diawara, and Girlpool.

More than 180 music acts will play Roskilde Festival 2019. The Cure, Robyn, Travis Scott, Christine and the Queens, Tears for Fears and many more have already been announced, and they will be joined by 28 new artists from five different continents.

Straight out of the Bronx, Cardi B is set to headline Roskilde Festival 2019. Jorja Smith is also heading for the festival: Having won the Best British Female at the 2019 Brit Awards, Jorja Smith finally released her acclaimed debut album Lost & Found last year.

Early in her career, Danish superstar MØ enjoyed a breakthrough on Roskilde Festival’s talent stage. Off the back of her new album Forever Neverland, the Dane is ready to conquer the iconic Orange Stage once again.

Bring Me the Horizon are back at Roskilde, this time for a rock lesson on the main stage. Reinvigorated stoner hip-hoppers Cypress Hill are also ready for a triumphant return, 23 years after their last visit, off the back of acclaimed new album Elephants On Acid.

Australian artist Stella Donnelly is one of the most hyped songwriters out there despite not yet having released a full album. Tackling very difficult subjects, her razor-sharp lyrics are personal and brutally honest. Julien Baker, equally, deals with tough issues such as sexuality and self-doubt. She is also part of the alternative supergroup boygenius together with Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus. The latter is also announced today, having released one of the most praised indie rock albums of 2018, Historian.

Virtually unknown outside of London, teenage quartet Black Midi are deemed the next big thing in the UK: Fans of math-rock and noise will have plenty to look forward to here. Plus there’s more from Sophie, Khruangbin and Girlpool.

Danish artists Alexander Tillegreen, Biba Fibiger and Ida Sønder Thorhauge are among the first to be announced for the arts programme along with acclaimed Brazilian artist Assume Vivid Astro Focus who will build a psychedelic stage in the Art Zone.
