Bon Iver to play Roskilde Festival 2012

The bearded folk hero is a new early triumph for the coming music programme.

We add a solid act to the programme for fans of alternative folk from God's own country.

BON IVER (US) broke through with the lonely, sobbingly beautiful debut album For Emma, Forever Ago. On the self-titled album from 2011 front man Justin Vernon has extended his sound with a big, well-playing band and appears as a progressive folk artist with a penchant for soft rock, grandiose sounds and instrumental digressions.

Audience favourite
Bon Iver has really stepped into the spotlight. It was also evident when we asked for your music requests the last time around. The bearded American with the fabulous falsetto is now in the top 10 of the hottest Roskilde requests in the company of the biggest stars, stadium bands and legends. We are happy to be able to fulfill your request with this critic's darling.

Highly praised album
Bon Iver's latest album has been received with lots of praise:

“Fully realised in its ambition, Bon Iver possesses all the austere beauty and understated emotiveness of its predecessor.” (Uncut)

“Bon Iver is about flow, from one scene and arrangement and song and memory and word into the next-- each distinct but connected” (Pitchfork)

“One of 2011's most absorbing, affecting and downright brilliant LPs.” (BBC)

“Bon Iver's musical palette is a far broader, full blown band affair.” (Mojo)


Bon Iver is now in the top 10 of the hottest Roskilde requests.
