Prince to Roskilde Festival
One of the strongest acts in 40 years of festival history has just been confirmed.

Last Thursday’s approx. 60 announced artists are still fresh. Five days later, Roskilde Festival already has an addition – even one with true star status – ready for its audience. A surprise of the kind that separates Roskilde Festival from most other music events in Europe.

PRINCE (US) comes on one of his rare European visits at Roskilde Festival.

"I’ve had to pinch myself many times since last night when everything fell into place. Getting Prince to Roskilde Festival has been on our wish list for years. He’s not a frequent guest at festivals, so it's a great honour for us. It's wonderful finally to be able to tell this great news to our audience," says music director Rikke Øxner.

The only festival concert
The rock demigod’s first concert at Roskilde Festival will be one out of only three this summer. The other two take place in Werchter in Belgium and Arras in France, and Roskilde Festival is the only real festival that Prince visits. The American legend has not played in Denmark since 2002.

Today, Roskilde Festival adds a gilt-edged name to its festival poster, whom probably only few dared dream of. But Roskilde Festival's ambition is to make nearly abandoned dreams come true. And now all festival-goers can look forward to a magical evening in the company of a rock-historic eminence in gold and purple. 


The purple rock prince from Minneapolis finally visits Roskilde Festival. This big visit is the only of its kind in Northern Europe and the first visit in Denmark since 2002.

Tickets to Roskilde Festival 2010 are available through the festival's online ticket sale.

See you at Roskilde Festival 1 - 4 July 2010. Warm-up from 27 June at 8:00.
