Kellermensch confirmed and a lot more to come 12:00
Warpaint will probably be one of the acts announced today.
Arcade Fire, Solange, Justice and 21 more announced
A total of 24 acts have been added to the #RF17 line-up, also including Blink-182, The Lumineers, Erasure, Cashmere Cat, Kellermensch and Warpaint.

39 acts have now been announced for Roskilde Festival 2017. Read about the new acts below and check out all the acts here.

Canadian favourites return to Roskilde
Arcade Fire's debut album Funeral was an instant classic upon release in 2004: with its distinct sound, emotive lyrics, pure ambition and melodious superiority, the Canadians not only soundtracked an era but effectively pushed the limits of indie rock. Arcade Fire have since expanded on their sound, and their rich back catalogue and unique live shows over the past decade have firmly cemented their unique position.

With a new album underway, Arcade Fire are ready to take on the legendary Orange Stage for their first show at Roskilde Festival in 10 years.

American chart-toppers and beloved synthesizers
Solange has long been a star in her own right, and it seemed only fitting when her new album A Seat at the Table went straight to no. 1 on the Billboard chart. Highly praised by fans and critics alike, the politically charged and extraordinarily gifted American will play Roskilde Festival for the first time next summer.

Enjoying a return to the non-profit bash a decade since their last visit, French duo Justice will light up the festival with their brand-new album and heavy collection of hits. Fans of synthesizers and pop history cannot afford to miss the influential and beloved Erasure who are guaranteed to deliver a flamboyant show packed with sing-along moments.

American pop-punk trio Blink-182 are rare guests in Europe, and their Roskilde Festival show next summer will be their first visit to Denmark, whereas acts like Warpaint and The Lumineers will make triumphant returns to the festival.

Urban vibes and Nordic delights
The godfather of grime, UK’s very own Kano, returns to Roskilde alongside urban artists such as Møme from France, New York’s Princess Nokia and Wiki and Norwegian sensation Cashmere Cat.
Other Nordic acts include Norway’s Blood Command, Sweden’s Viagra Boys and Danish rock monsters Kellermensch.

BLINK FUCKING 182!!!! I AM HAPPY NOW!
Quite good one. Arcade fire, justice, neurosis, blink 182, solange, lumineers....
Not much for me. BCUC sounds good judging by the first song, Lumineers and Red Fang are at least ok. It´s good for me to see Arcade Fire live at last so I´ll know what to think about them.
And now with fanboy of I am looking forward to VIAGRA BOYS, RED FANG and BLOOD COMMAND and sure more when I check them out.

But Erasure? That is fun :D

BCUC sounds awesome :D

I really look forward to Arcade Fire as well. Plus Solange new album is quite good.

Have to dig into much of it.

They're a really good live band. Screw The Lumineers!
Arcade Fire, Red Fang and Justice are great bookings. Warpaint too, but in my opinion their last Roskilde performance was a bit boring.

Interesting that there are now 5 headliners and 3 of those are some kind of electronic music... hope there will be no more, although all of them are on my must see list.
Amazing announcement!

Arcade Fire, Justice, Blink-182 and Neurosis are all must-sees, Solange, SVIN, Red Fang and Erasure will be excellent, too!

I Left midt way the last time at Arcade Fire at Northside... dam that shit is weird
Arcade Fire, Justice and Kevin Morby goes straight to my must-see list.

Viagra Boys sounds REALLY good - also going on that list. Kellermensch and SVIN too.

Great day.
I do love me some Arcade Fire.
What about that Kevin Morby fellow? I vaguely remember his most recent album being quite good.
Erasure was a great party back in '97, so really looking forward to see them again! Arcade Fire and Blink 182 also really nice bookings. Also hope to catch Blood Command and Lumineers :)
