In exactly two weeks’ time the gates to Roskilde Festival will open again and take in the insane number of 130.000 music lovers, turning the festival for the time being into Denmark’s fourth biggest city! This year’s edition will already kick-off on Saturday and therefore take place from 27. June to 04. July 2015.

After an incredible debut for Good because Danish at Roskilde Festival 2014, we cannot wait to repeat the success, put our tents onto the camping grounds, enjoy festival burgers and warmish beer, and be surrounded by great people, all celebrating music, summer and life for a full week.

Among the 175 confirmed acts performing at Roskilde Festival 2015, you can not only find a colourful potpourri of big, international names like Paul McCartney, Muse, Pharrell Williams, St. Vincent, The War On Drugs, Florence + The Machine, Ryan Adams, Nicki Minaj, Hot Chip, Kendrick Lamar or Disclosure, but also a great bunch of local acts from Denmark. Besides the headlining Mew, several Danes will have home games on all different stages during the main festival days: Broken Twin, Communions, Rangleklods, Bikstok, Suspekt, WhoMadeWho, Lust For Youth, The Minds of 99, Santiago,

To fire up the festival in style, also a big part of the bands playing the warm-up days on the Roskilde Rising and Apollo Countdown stages are Danish locals – and some of them even regulars on Good because Danish: Lowly, The Attic Sleepers, October Dance, The Entrepreneurs, Tårn, Av Av Av, Kwamie Liv, Saint Cava, Young Dinosaur, Wangel, Slaughter Beach, Benal, Yung and many more. Check out the full line-up HERE.

We are counting down the days until our adventure at Roskilde Festival 2015 starts – make sure to follow us on Instagram @goodbecausedanish and Snapchat goodcausedanish to join in on this adventure!
