Manchester music legends New Order will return to Roskilde in 2016, more than 30 years after their first show at the festival in 1984. It will be their first visit since 2002.
The band’s iconic mix of rock, dance, pop and electronic music has spawned countless bands since the band’s inception, along with its highly influential albums and hit singles like ‘Blue Monday’, ‘Bizarre Love Triangle’, ‘The Perfect Kiss’, ‘True Faith’ and ‘Regret’.
New Order, who originally found fame as Joy Division with their original frontman Ian Curtis, recently released its first studio LP for 10 years: ‘Music Complete’.
Rap and indy
Also added to the bill are chart-topping hip-hopper Wiz Khalifa and British indie rockers Foals.
An independent rap prodigy who grew into a bonafide chart-busting hit machine, 28-year-old Wiz Khalifa went to number one on the music charts with his official debut single, ‘Black & Yellow’. His latest hit, ‘See You Again’, has reached more than 1 billion plays on YouTube. Wiz Khalifa first played Roskilde in 2012.
British indie rockers Foals first played the festival in 2011. They combine a widescreen rock sound and big choruses with an arty touch.
