Björk to Roskilde Festival 2012
The Icelandic superstar is ready to pay another visit to Scandinavia's biggest festival.

Roskilde Festival kicks off the new season with a true ”Roskilde act”. One of the most distinct profiles and an always surprising musician.

BJÖRK (ISL) combines, like few others, broad appeal with artistic eccentricity. She is at once a musical sorceress with Icelandic lava flowing through the veins, iconic pop star and electronic wonder kid. Throughout the last 18 years, each new album has been a bold move in a new direction, and Roskilde Festival has been one of the regular stops on her musical travels.

Constantly innovative
She is the quintessential modern musician, ceaselessly innovating and completely multi-dimensional in the way she uses performance, technology, fashion, video and art to complement her music. Album projects for Björk always comprise of several components but with her eighth studio album Biophilia, released in October this year, she presents her most inter-disciplinary project to date. A wide-ranging multi-media experience, Biophilia comprises a studio album, apps for each song, a website, custom-made musical instruments, live shows and educational workshops. Björk has collaborated with app developers, scientists, writers, inventors, musicians, and instrument makers to create a unique exploration of the universe and its physical forces.

Successful in many ways
From the release of her first album Debut in 1993, Björk has now sold over 20 million albums worldwide. She has acquired significant critical acclaim, also winning 4 Brit Awards, 4 MTV VMA’s and in 2010, the Polar Music Prize in recognition for her "deeply personal music and lyrics, her precise arrangements and her unique voice".

Roskilde Festival is proud to welcome this superstar back on the poster for the first time since 2007.
