27 future stars to play Roskilde Festival


The talent programme at Northern Europe's biggest festival has been completed with 27 new acts, representing the best new Nordic music. Today's additions include Miriam Bryant, Jada, Albin Lee Maldau and Jacob Ogawa. The full line-up for Roskilde Festival will be revealed on 5 April.


It looks almost like a festival within the festival with 43 Nordic acts gearing up for their debut on Roskilde Festival's talent stages.


These acts follow in the footsteps of MØ, Iceage, Susanne Sundfør, Icona Pop, Jaakko Eino Kalevi and many others who played Roskilde Festival before their big breakthroughs.


During the first three days of the festival, these stars of tomorrow will play the Rising and Countdown stages, both located in the centre of the non-profit festival's huge camping city. These acts will play to the biggest audience of their career so far.


The 27 new acts include Swedish pop hope Miriam Bryant, her soulful Gothenburg neighbour Albin Lee Meldau, Norwegian indie songwriter Jacob Ogawa and the confident-yet-fragile pop sensation Jada from Denmark.


They will join already announced upcoming Nordic acts such as Denmark's Iris Gold, Sweden's Pale Honey and Norway's Sassy 009, all making waves in their home countries and internationally, ready to take things to the next level at Roskilde Festival.


Head of programme Anders Wahrén says:


"As the biggest festival in Northern Europe, we feel a responsibility to use the festival as a platform to take the Nordic talents to the next level. There's so much good music coming out of these countries, and it's a privilege to spot those artists who deserve more exposure. We're convinced that artists such as Jada, Miriam Bryant, Jacob Ogawa and Albin Lee Meldau will win over an army of new fans when they meet the constantly curious audience at Roskilde Festival this summer."
