Disclosure coming to Roskilde Festival 2013

Baauer, Holy Other, Jam City and Vatican Shadow have also been added to the lineup.

Roskilde Festival is ready with the first batch of fresh electronic acts for the 2013 lineup. 

DISCLOSURE (UK) has on the first single release paved the way for the future of pop, house and dubstep. It's chic, urban and touches upon several hot spots on the electronic genre map.

BAAUER (US) blends house, southern hip hop and bass music in his own instrumental rehash. Reputable electronic names such as Rustie and Diplo have noticed this promising wiz kid.

HOLY OTHER (UK) mixes house, moody R&B and British dubstep in a darkened sound full of copy-pasted ghostlike vocals, clicking rimshots and keyboards in minor.

JAM CITY (UK) reinvents, mutates and transforms music as if Gyro Gearloose were let loose behind a mixing console. Somewhere inside the violent, futuristic music you find a wreckage of soul, house, techno and pop.

VATICAN SHADOW (US) also records under the name Prurient and is head of the trendsetting record label Hospital Productions. The American's disturbing electro is dark, dystopian and industrial.

Today's announcement shows that Roskilde Festival 2013 will also be characterised by a first-class offering in almost every conceivable type of electronic music. And with our new, unique stage Apollo, we know that the artists are in good hands.


Disclosure paves the way for the future of pop, house and dubstep.
