Roskilde Festival has announced the first wave of acts for its 2023 edition, including Blur, Queens Of The Stone Age and Christine And The Queens.

Today (November 30), organisers have confirmed that Blur will headline Roskilde 20 years after the band’s last appearance at the festival.

Queens Of The Stone Age will also top the bill in ’23, and are set to bring material from their upcoming new album.

Christine And The Queens, meanwhile, will deliver an “immaculately choreographed” headline show under his new new ‘Redcar’ alias. Additionally, Burna Boy is lined up for the remaining top slot.

Other artists on the line-up so far include Rina Sawayama, Alice Glass, Denzel Curry, Tove Lo, Japanese Breakfast, 070 Shake and Hudson Mohawke.
