DENMARK: The reunited LCD Soundsystem will grace Roskilde Festival this summer, and Danish popstar MØ will play an exclusive show on the iconic Orange Stage. The festival has also announced that Tame Impala, Ghost, Chvrches and Destroyer will perform.

With today’s additions, 53 acts of a total of 175 have been announced, revealing what is already a diverse line-up.

New Order, PJ Harvey, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Wiz Khalifa and Tenacious D are just some of the acts already announced for Roskilde Festival 2016. They will be joined by LCD Soundsystem, MØ, Tame Impala, CHVRCHES, Savages, Destroyer, Ghost, Floating Points and many more.

Anders Wahrén, Roskilde’s Head of Programme, said: “LCD Soundsystem’s reunion almost came out of the blue, and we didn’t dare to believe the initial rumours. We’re happy to be part of this reunion, presenting them for the third time at Roskilde Festival. Unlike many other bands, LCD Soundsystem pulled the plug at the very height of their success, and they won’t just play shows, they’ll also treat us to a new album. We’re fully convinced that they’ll live up to the massive expectations.”

LCD Soundsystem played the Danish festival in 2007 and 2010.
