Hip-hop is taking it international this summer and following yesterday’s news that Nas will co-headline London’s Lovebox Festival, Denmark’s Roskilde Festival announced today that both Drake and Outkast have joined the extensive bill. Taking place between June 29th and July 6th, the lineup also includes hip-hop acts like Chance The Rapper and Dilated Peoples. Having Drake and Outkast on the same bill as The Rolling Stones and Stevie Wonder in a country like Denmark cannot be understated and once again proves hip-hop’s worldwide appeal and reach.
The Roskilde Festival will feature over 150 acts and all proceeds from the event are donated to cultural and humanitarian efforts. For more information, visit www.roskilde-festival.dk.—Peter Walsh
