Anders Wahrén, Roskilde Festival’s Programme Director, said: “We have a long-running history of being a progressive festival with an international perspective, and we consistently push ourselves to further that purpose.

“We aim to inspire every single one of our 130,000 festival participants with a diverse lineup characterised by artistic curiosity and groundbreaking headliners presented in a unique festival setting.”

Additionally, Roskilde ’24 will deliver “a vast line-up of interdisciplinary art and activism through talks, workshops and performance”.

Wahrén continued: “Roskilde Festival is a very communal event where dreams and new ideas for a better tomorrow are being addressed, exchanged, cultivated and eventually tried out by our participants.
