The Weeknd is set to headline next summer's instalment of Roskilde.
The Canadian star recently returned with new album 'Starboy', an 18 track epic that features contributions from Daft Punk.
An international hit, 'Starboy' underlines The Weeknd's status as one of the most sought after artists on the planet.
Well, he's about to his Roskilde. Abel Tesfaye will headline the enormous Danish festival, and he'll no doubt have something special up his sleeve for the historic event.
Head of Programme Anders Wahrén says: “We have been following The Weeknd since the beginning, and it’s no secret that he’s been topping the wishlists of our fans for the past couple of years. It’s very rare for an underground phenomenon to rise to the top while staying true to his own sound and past. Being one of the biggest pop artists in the world right now, this is a very special artist, and we’re thrilled that he’ll be headlining side by side with acts like Foo Fighters and Arcade Fire.”
Tickets are on sale now.
Roskilde runs between June 24th - July 1st.
