Cardi B, Jorja Smith and MØ to play Roskilde Festival 2019

More than 180 music acts will play Roskilde Festival 2019. The Cure, Robyn, Travis Scott, Christine and the Queens, Tears for Fears and many more have already been announced, and they will be joined by 28 new artists from five different continents.

The queen of hip-hop
Straight out of the Bronx, 26-year-old Cardi B is set to headline Northern Europe’s biggest festival. The undisputed queen of hip-hop is responsible for chart-topping singles including Bodak Yellow and I Like It from her debut blockbuster album Invasion of Privacy. With seven Grammy nominations to her name, she is the first female rapper in 19 years to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart and the first ever to have three singles in the top 10 at the same time.

English R&B and pop revelation Jorja Smith is also heading for the stars: Having won the Critics’ Choice at the Brit Awards, Jorja Smith finally released her acclaimed debut album Lost & Found last year. The 21-year-old has worked with artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Kali Uchis and Stormzy, and it is no surprise that she is nominated for Best New Artist at the 2019 Grammys.

Early in her career, Danish superstar  enjoyed a breakthrough on Roskilde Festival’s talent stage. Off the back of her new album Forever Neverland, the Dane is ready to conquer the iconic Orange Stage once again.

Head of programme Anders Wahrén says:
“Cardi B, Jorja Smith and MØ are very different artists, but they’re all bonafide stars. From hip-hop to R&B to pop, they’re shaping the musical landscape, and we can’t wait to see them triumph at Roskilde Festival 2019.”

Bring Me the Horizon are back at Roskilde, this time for a rock lesson on the main stage. Reinvigorated stoner hip-hoppers Cypress Hill are also ready for a triumphant return, 23 years after their last visit, off the back of acclaimed new album Elephants On Acid.

All hail the songwriters of the future
Australian artist Stella Donnelly is one of the most hyped songwriters out there despite not yet having released a full album. Tackling very difficult subjects, her razor-sharp lyrics are personal and brutally honest. Julien Baker, equally, deals with tough issues such as sexuality and self-doubt. She is also part of the alternative supergroup boygenius together with Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus. The latter is also announced today, having released one of the most praised indie rock albums of 2018, Historian.

Virtually unknown outside of London, teenage quartet Black Midi are deemed the next big thing in the UK: Fans of math-rock and noise will have plenty to look forward to here. Plus there’s more from Sophie, Khruangbin, Girlpool and many more.

Roskilde Festival 2019 will be full of talents, and this is reflected in the festival’s Art Zone as well. Danish artists Alexander Tillegreen, Biba Fibiger and Ida Sønder Thorhauge are among the first to be announced for the arts programme along with acclaimed Brazilian artist Assume Vivid Astro Focus who will build a colourful, psychedelic stage in the Art Zone.

Rolls-Royce Cullinan

Three years after the beginning of a gruelling testing programme that has seen it conquer every corner of the globe from freezing snowfields to searing deserts, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan will undertake The Final Challenge to prove itself Effortless Everywhere in the public eye. In an unprecedented partnership, Rolls-Royce and National Geographic will work together to publish daily film and photograph updates as Cullinan undertakes trials in Northern Europe, the Middle East and the United States for a final time ahead of its world debut later this year.

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan will embody all the values and capabilities that drove Rolls-Royce’s two founding fathers, the Honourable Charles Rolls and Sir Henry Royce, to secure the marque’s reputation early last century, as they took top honours in rigorous public adventures such as the Scottish Reliability Trials, the London to Edinburgh event and the Alpine Trials.

The Final Challenge will begin in the Highlands of Scotland on Wednesday 4 April and will be broadcast on social media by National Geographic and Rolls-Royce as it continues its adventure through the Alpine snowfields of Austria, the arid deserts of the Middle East and finally across the toughest terrain in the United States. These will include multiple off-road challenges and miles of rough terrain.

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan and crew will be accompanied on The Final Challenge by acclaimed explorer and photographer Cory Richards, National Geographic’s Adventurer of the Year in 2012. The National Geographic team will document the journey with daily updates broadcast from the spectacular, far-flung locations he and the crew encounter.

“I promised the public three years ago that I would involve them in the development and testing of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, and I continue to keep that promise by making The Final Challenge, a public trial”, comments Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer of Rolls-Royce.

“Today’s public and customers will see Rolls-Royce in a wholly new light as Cullinan demonstrates just how capable a Rolls-Royce can be. And in a few short months, our customers will be able to experience this capability for themselves as they get behind the wheel of this truly compelling Rolls-Royce that is Effortless, Everywhere.”
