Giants Modeselektor and Moderat will play a joint concert for the first time ever at this year’s Roskilde Festival. Other act which have been announced include G-Eazy and Of Mice & Men.
Head of Programme Anders Wahrén comments: “Moderat and Modeselektor share band members, but they’ve actually never performed together. So this will be an “only at Roskilde” experience when they join forces for a three-hour long electronic club night on Orange Stage.”
“Trentemøller has enjoyed several successful shows on Orange Stage, but this time he has asked to play the smaller Arena stage, which we think is a good fit. The audience can expect a different sort of intensity with him and his band this time around.”
“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.”
The first wave of acts revealed are:
Angel Olsen (Us)
Hieroglyphic Being (Us)
Jenny Hval (No)
Marching Church (Dk)
Mats Gustafsson’s Nu Ensemble ”Hidros Zap” (Int)
Of Mice & Men (Us)
Pig Destroyer (Us)
The festival will take place from Saturday 24 June to Saturday 1 July 2017 in Denmark.
