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.

Jon Bellion Re-Releases Mixtapes

JON BELLION RE-RELEASES BREAKOUT MIXTAPES TRANSLATIONS THROUGH SPEAKERS, THE SEPARATION, & THE DEFINITION, OUT TODAY

RELEASED ON VINYL FOR FIRST TIME EVER IN GROWTH BOX SET
 

Revisiting his roots and nodding to where he came from, GRAMMY® Award-winning multiplatinum artist Jon Bellion officially re-releases his breakout independent mixtapes–Translations Through Speakers [2013], The Separation [2013], and The Definition [2014]–at all digital retailers for the first time ever via Visionary Music Group and Capitol Music Group. In addition, the New York-based singer, songwriter, musician, and producer has bundled all three projects in a limited-edition vinyl box set entitled Growth. All mixtapes and the box set are out today and available HERE.

This release also follows the exciting news that his 2016 major label debut The Human Condition has been RIAA certified Gold. Long before the album bowed at #5 on the Billboard Top 200, yielded the double-platinum smash “All Time Low,” and netted over 1.5 billion cumulative global streams, Bellion quietly emerged as a genre maverick with an airtight fusion of pop, hip-hop, alternative, and indie all his own. His mixtapes introduced him to new fans around the world as he independently vaulted to headline status with sold out shows coast to coast. The reissue of these mixtapes allows fans to experience his entire catalog once again and trace his evolution into the phenomenon he is today.

Bellion has been touring across North America for the third leg of The Human Condition Tour, with just over three weeks of shows remaining. His biggest headliner to date, most shows are already sold out or close to selling out. See below for the remaining itinerary or visit www.TheHumanConditionTour.com.

There’s nobody quite like Bellion. He’s artfully architected a hybrid of pop, rock, and rap that’s as undeniable as it is untouchable. “All Time Low” cemented him as one of 2017’s hottest artists as it surpassed RIAA double-platinum status, peaked in the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100, and generated a staggering 219 million Spotify streams and counting as well as 72 million YouTube/VEVO views. It can be seen HERE. Stream “All Time Low” featuring Stormzy HERE.
