The Roots will play Roskilde Festival 2012
The American hip hop collective is added to the line-up together with Swedish artist Jonathan Johansson.

Roskilde Festival has good news for fans of hip hop and Swedish, elegant pop.

THE ROOTS (US) play at Roskilde Festival as the only Scandinavian job this summer. The American hip hop collective rarely visits Europe nowadays. The performance at Roskilde Festival will be a welcome opportunity to see The Roots where they are best. On stage. ?uestlove, Black Thought and co lead the way when it comes to hip hop packed with hot neo-soul, social indignation, humour, funk and improv-minded jazz. Many people call The Roots the best live band of hip hop for their swing and rock band feeling.

JONATHAN JOHANSSON (S) has already conquered lots of pop hearts with his elegant and catchy pop. With his Swedish lyrics and tasteful 80s-leaning arrangements, Johansson has also attracted attention all the way across the Atlantic. Jonathan Johansson continues the Swedish tradition of writing superior, slightly melancholic pop songs with a big aim. He stylishly and coolly distills romance and soul into black shiny pop songs, making fans of Depeche Mode and New Order cheer.
