The first 10 acts announced for Roskilde Festival 2016

Spanning different styles and genres, Action Bronson, Courtney Barnett, Mac DeMarco, Sturgill Simpson and more kick off the 46th edition of the festival.

Following a successful, sold-out and sunny Roskilde Festival 2015, the first artists have now been confirmed for next year’s edition. As always, the festival will be full of music of all styles with a total of 175 acts from all over the world, and the first 10 announcements are no different.

Roskilde Festival offers both huge shows with international superstars as well as bands on the verge of their breakthrough. With a reputation for nurturing small and cutting-edge acts and elevating them to the next level, there is plenty of new music to seek out – from hip-hop to rock, from country to electronic music and pure pop joy.

Darlings and dandys in the name of diversity
31-year-old Action Bronson went from gourmet chef to underground hero in the New York hip-hop scene, rapidly gaining a following that will see him return to Roskilde Festival as a bonafide hip-hop superstar. Having played the festival in 2013, he has since released his debut album and scored his first top 10 hit with “Baby Blue”featuring Chance the Rapper.

Canadian charmer Mac DeMarco has – lovingly – been labelled the new king of slacker rock, but that is by no means synonymous with laziness: having released his debut EP and LP in 2012, he has since followed up with the breakthrough LP Salad Days and several other releases both big and small, accompanied by sold-out tours on both sides of the pond.

With her debut album this year, Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett quickly established herself amongst critics and fans alike. Wrapped in unforgettable hooks and melodies, Barnett delivers tongue-in-cheek lyrics that command the attention of the listener.

From Canada to Ethiopia, from Germany to Australia, these are the 10 acts that have been announced today:

  • Action Bronson (US)
  • Mac Demarco (CA)
  • Courtney Barnett (AU)
  • Cattle Decapitation (US)
  • Colin Stetson & Sarah Neufeld (CA)
  • Ho99o9 (US)
  • Kuedo (DE)
  • Qwanqwa (ET)
  • Sleaford Mods (UK)
  • Sturgill Simpson (US)


We will announce further 165 acts in the coming months.

It would have been cool if they could have announce a big (semi-)exclusive headliner but this is a very nice start :D

Qwanqwa, Ho99o9, Sleaford Mods, Colin Stetson & Sarah Neufeld seem the most interesting at a quick glance. Others too, so a very nice start indeed.

Mac Demarco and Courtney Barnett plus a bunch of new stuff to look into will do me so far. :)

Sturgill Simpson (and his band) is very very good live. A new record is coming before next summer so this is something to really look forward to.

I'm also trying, but I really doubt I will see any of these 10 acts, when. Best chances might be Action Bronson (but I left the concert in 2013 - it was not memorable) or Ho99o9 to see something fucked up.

Do you have a complete list of the first 20 000. Would be interesting to see what the people wish for.

I'll try do do a complete analysis once the voting has ended (end of the month).
You can see the near complete list for the first 18.000 votes in another thread here:
