Roskilde Festival Announces First 14 Acts For 2017

Art & Culture

Roskilde Festival have announced the first 14 acts for their 2017 edition. Moderat + Modeselektor are to play a unique joint show, with Angel Olsen, Of Mice & Men, G-Eazy & Jenny Hval amongst the first names confirmed.

On the announcement, Head of Programme Anders Wahrén remarked "Moderat and Modeselektor share band members, but they've actually never performed together. So this will be an "only at Rosklide" experience where they join forces for a three-hour long electronic club night on orange stage… The first 13 acts range from distinctive voices such as Angel Olsen and Jenny Hval to a defining act like Pig Destroyer who rarely play in Europe. In many ways Roskilde Festival is about discovering the music you didn't know you were going to love, and even with more than 160 acts yet to be announced, next year's festival is sure to offer both headliners and bands that are ready to break through to a wider audience."

With more than 175 music acts in the line-up performing across 9 stages, with over 100,000 guests gathered for a full week Roskilde is one of Europe's biggest and most established festivals. Full line up to be announced later.
