Gossip is ready for Roskilde Festival 2012

Lee Fields, Gentleman, Niklas and Spillemændene are also added to the lineup.

Five exciting acts fill up some of the last slots in the lineup.

GOSSIP (US) has a starting point in alternative rock and punk but the band embraces the lip-glossed, glamorous disco pop on the new album A Joyful Noise. The band has the iconic Beth Ditto in front, a wonderful voice and a modern diva who will soon conquer the chic queen throne. Gossip also played Roskilde in 2008 - but since then they have focused more on pop, still with lots of nerve and raw energy.

LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS (US) are ready to make the Roskilde summer even hotter with some golden-age soul. The same brass-gilded mixture that Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley have previously won over the Roskilde audience with. When you experience the sharply dressed soul crooner and cool cat Lee Fields, you understand why he has previously been called Little James Brown.

GENTLEMAN & THE EVOLUTION (DE) has captured a large audience with his European hybrid of reggae, dancehall and R&B. Gentleman fills the Roskilde tent with his optimistic message of love, backed by his big band The Evolution. A sunny summer party filled with rocking riddims, shouts for tolerance and Caribbean flavour awaits.

NIKLAS (DK) has a remarkable talent for creating hits full of Danish-language rap, syrupy sweet synths, 90s disco and power-flirtatious funk attitude. Niklas has become one of today's hottest, totally home-grown pop acts on the Danish scene.

SPILLEMÆNDENE (DK) conquer their own baroque, literary universe with a point of departure in the ballad and folk tradition. Nicolai Elsberg has a sonorous voice and is an original storyteller, like a young Danish version of Leonard Cohen.

Band schedule ready in about a week
With these late gold nuggets, the lineup for Roskilde Festival 2012 is almost final. In the coming week we put the finishing touches on the band schedule, which we hope to share with you in about a week.
