The Strokes will headline the festival, along with friends of the band Kings of Leon and Arctic Monkeys.
The Strokes last played Roskilde in 2006, during a more tumultuous time. Now, they seem to have opted for only about a month together in Europe playing the continent’s festival circuit. It’s a decision which will undoubtedly anger many fans, yet is probably the best for the health and longevity of the band.
Roskilde takes place from June 30-July 3.
