The organisers have promised a rather specific 169 acts on the 2015 line-up, with tastes in rock, metal, hip hop, electronica and world music all catered for.

American heavy-metal band Lamb Of God will make their Roskilde Festival debut in 2015, stargazing prog-popsters Mew play their only Danish festival gig at Roskilde and hip-hop outfit Suspekt will play a late-night set on the Orange Stage.

The other acts announced today are: Rustie, Dixon, Dolomite Minor, Khaira Arby, Kronos Quartet and Tombs.

Roskilde 2015 takes place over eight days, from 27 June to 4 July, at Festivalpladsen on the edge of Roskilde in Denmark. Roskilde is a city located just 35 km from Copenhagen, and easy to reach via public transport from the capital.

The festival began in 1971 and now has eight major stages, hosting a range of artists across a spread of genres. Bob Marley, U2, Radiohead and Talking Heads have all previously played the festival, which is ran as a non-profit organisation and has raised more than 25.4 million euros for various charities since its inception.
