Roskilde Festival announces four new acts
Roskilde Festival adds new names to the programme, delivering everything from Roma rap to boogie funk.

The final programme for Roskilde Festival 2011 is soon in place. Today the festival announces four acts, featuring four very different musical expressions. Like an image of the musical diversity in the overall music programme.

DÃM FUNK with MASTER BLAZTER (US) is a California boogie-funk ambassador. Like a young Prince, Dãm Funk lives and breathes to keep familiar funk genres of the 80s alive while at the same time leading them all into a musical zeitgeist where everything is more cutting-edge. Dãm Funk brings the singer Master Blazter to Roskilde.

NICOLAS JAAR (US) has been dubbed electronic music’s big American hope. His music is both focused on rhythm and repetition. Jaar moves in and out of electro pop, Afro jazz, sound collages, hip hop and many other styles – all tied together by his melancholy vocal.

PRINCE FATTY SOUNDSYSTEM feat. LITTLE ROY and HORSEMAN (UK) have proclaimed that they were made for dubbing your feet and stimulating your brain. Even though Prince Fatty Soundsystem originally was created as a musical ad for a clothing brand, it became such a great success on British airwaves that mastermind Pelanconi decided to continue the party. Look forward to rocking along to these sounds of dub and reggae.

SHUTKA ROMA RAP (MKD) is a true Roma rap collective. With Shutka Roma Rap, this politically vilified people have finally gotten a strong and uncompromising musical voice with the courage to add fuel to the political fires and speak up for a generation of young Romany people who want to root out racism. We are proud to present a rap act with a message – and something at stake.
