Jaguar Ma, Kevin Morby, Margo Price, Kano are also among those newly announced. Other acts previously confirmed for Roskilde include Trentemøller, Angel Olsen, Moderat/Modeselektor and Jenny Hval.

Head of Programme Anders Wahrén says of the news: “Arcade Fire have spearheaded a new generation of indie rock, and they’ve grown tremendously in terms of both ambition and popularity since their last visit to Roskilde Festival 10 years ago. We look forward to a majestic and overwhelming night when they play our iconic Orange Stage in 2017.”

“The acts that we’ve announced today are from 10 different countries and represent a myriad of different styles. On a larger scale, this sort of diversity is what’s so important to us. From Korea’s Black String to a trendsetting urban artist like Kano. From a political star like Solange to something heavier like Red Fang, these artists all do something unique in totally different ways.”
