Kendrick Lamar to play Roskilde 2013

Jake Bugg, Hatebreed, Rokia Traoré and an electronic package from the Numbers label are also added to the lineup.

We add more stardust of solid acts to the 2013 lineup.

KENDRICK LAMAR (US) has made the leap into the list of grand hip hop acts. With good kid, m.A.A. d. city the rapper from Compton has made a bona fide masterpiece, one of the most critically-acclaimed albums of 2012. And the Nordic audience has already witnessed how he masters his craft in a live setting as well.

The American hip hopper is just one of several great acts today.

JAKE BUGG (UK) takes the best of 60s folk and 90s Brit rock and moulds his own melodic blues. The young musician has taken the stage as a young Bob Dylan and all the established stars are eager to sing his praise as well.

HATEBREED (US) have made mosh pits everywhere red-hot since 1994. They visit Roskilde Festival for the first time since 2004. The Americans breed their own monster: ’Celtic Frost hardcore’ front man Jamey Jasta dubs the genre, conveying a mix of thrash and hardcore.

ROKIA TRAORÉ (ML) plays Roskilde Festival for the third time. Today, the culturally widespread anchored diva is not just one of Mali's but Africa's central music ambassadeurs – her forthcoming album is called Beautiful Africa and is produced by PJ Harvey's sidekick John Parish.

NUMBERS feat. RUSTIE, JACKMASTER, ONEMAN, SPENCER, DEADBOY, REDINHO and SOPHIE (UK) present an electronic evening without genre restrictions. On this tour de force with Glasgow as the base, we get to hear techno, electro, hiphop, UK funky, dubstep and much more.
