An exciting announcement to end 2020 comes from Roskilde Festival who has just unveiled that Kendrick Lamar has agreed to headline the summer 2021 festival.

With all the cancellations that have occurred, all the major concerts of 2020, including Denmark’s famous Roskilde Festival, have rescheduled due to the pandemic. Lamar was initially the headline event for the 2020 festival, so it comes as no surprise that he will be joining the festival again this summer. Roskilde is expected to run from June 26 – July 3 2021 and includes a major lineup of artists.

Fans can expect to see performances from The Strokes, Tyler, the Creator, HAIM, Thom Yorke‘s Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, FKA Twigs, Anderson.Paak, Big Thief, DaBaby, Doja Cat, and even Megan Thee Stallion. Artists who were slated to perform in the 2020 festival but have yet to confirm include Taylor Swift, Kacey Musgraves, and The Roots, just to name a few.

Though this good news brings live music fans everywhere something to look forward to, it is uncertain whether or not live shows will be able to happen when the time comes. It still remains to be seen if the US and Europe will be safe for large group gatherings for the summer of 2021.

Check out the tweet below for the official announcement.
