Volbeat, Sigur Rós, Kvelertak and Goat to play Roskilde Festival 2013

Nordic music package kickstarts the festival season.

Roskilde Festival is already working diligently on putting together a lineup that can compare with the successes of previous years. We start off with a diverse Nordic package that has something for almost every taste.

VOLBEAT (DK) has developed from a Nordic favourite to a huge'n'heavy name on the international metal scene. In 2013, Volbeat will make another impact. A new, galloping rock album is released this spring. The homecoming at Roskilde Festival will be a proud reunion with some local heroes whose world domination is about to be a reality.

SIGUR RÓS (IS) is back at Roskilde Festival for the first time since 2006. Their abstract and poetic future rock has turned them into a unique institution on the modern music scene. The Icelandics' latest album Valtari showed a very quiet side of the band. On the double album Innni from 2011 you can hear Sigur Rós’ qualities as a rock band in front of the audience. 

KVELERTAK (NO) has made the international audience gasp for air with their blend of hardcore punk, black metal and garage rock. Roskilde Festival sent out an early invitation and booked the band as the very first this festival season.

GOAT (SE) plays psychedelic rock with an African flavour. With electric guitar, accordion, organ and a well-developed sense of funk and trance, Goat invites us on a wild ride towards a gaudy parallel world. The debut album World Music is one of the most hyped and critically acclaimed coming out of The North in 2012.

And we're off!
With today's announcements we have set the bar high for a new summer peak full of musical impacts and surprising experiences. We can't wait to put together another lineup that reaches into every imaginable genre, colours and sounds.

The ticket sale opens on 1 December 2012.
