The promoters of Denmark’s Roskilde Festival announced on Wednesday (December 30) that Kendrick Lamar will headline the festival, scheduled to take place from June 26-July 3, 2021.
Lamar was scheduled to headline the event in 2020, but the festival could not be held then due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“We are on the threshold of a new year, and we think there is a need and reason to be hopeful,” Roskilde’s head of programming Anders Wahrén said in a statement. “That’s why we’re revealing another act for next year’s festival.”
“Lamar first visited Roskilde Festival in 2013 when he played an unforgettable concert on the Arena stage. When he returned two years later, he had just released the masterpiece To Pimp a Butterfly, and the concert on the Orange Stage was a true show of force,” reads a statement from the organizers of the festival.
The statement adds, “Two albums later – and with new material along the way – he is once again ready to take Roskilde Festival’s main stage with a concert that is likely to be one of the absolute highlights of the summer.”
Several top acts, including The Strokes, Tyler, The Creator, Faith No More, Haim, FKA Twigs, Girl in Red, Anderson.Paak, Big Thief, DaBaby, Deftones,Doja Cat, Fontaines D.C. and Megan Thee Stallion are also scheduled to perform during the festival.
