The Roskilde Festival 2012 poster is here

The jig is up. Today we've presented this year's lineup. Who are you going to experience this summer?

West, east, south, north. All corners of the world – both on the world map and in the landscape of genres – are represented when we present our 42nd music lineup. As always, we have the well-established artists, the breakthrough names of today and encyclopedic, global breadth in the panoply of exquisitely hand-picked artists.

Jack adds even more kick to Roskilde Festival 2012
With the addition of Jack White, this year’s biggest rock icon, we've added another great headliner to this year’s lineup, which already includes Bruce Springsteen, Björk, The Cure, Mew, Bon Iver and The Roots.

Today’s lineup release also brings great news to fans of Alison Krauss, Machine Head, Janelle Monáe, The Cult, Santigold and Amadou & Mariam. Extremely melodic The Shins are returning to the festival with a brand-new and already very popular record, and exciting new bands such as Django Django, Cold Specks and Clock Opera have also been added to the poster.

Throughout the years, we've presented unique musical set-ups and 2012 will not be any exception. The international super group Apparatjik, DJ Static and music collective Copenhagen Collaboration are already preparing unique Roskilde Festival shows designed especially for this summer’s festival. Furthermore, we've announced a new stage for electronic music, Apollo, which will host some of the hottest bands of the genre, for instance Modeselektor and Pretty Lights.

With the addition of another stage, the total number of bands on Roskilde Festival comes close to 200.

We are proud to have such a large portion of the total lineup ready - the total array of bands, artists and DJs is a generous gift package for any music fan who wants to experience both the familiar and the challenging.


A city of Dreams at Roskilde Festival
Alongside the release of the lineup we've introduced a new ‘city’ at the festival’s camping area - Dream City. Dream City will be designed and built by you and other festival-goers. It is a place for those who dream of making a difference and dare to realise their dreams. Here you can bring whatever you dream of, you can build large and tall, expand your ideas wide out and engage the people around you – as long as you do it for the enjoyment of everybody and take home what you brought to the festival to create your project.


Jack White will play at this year's festival.
