Today, the Danish non-profit festival, Roskilde Festival, announced that Foo Fighters will have their only concert in Scandinavia next year. The festival lineup boasts over 180 acts, including renowned artists such as Kali Uchis, Romy, and PJ Harvey.
The Foo Fighters, a group of experienced US veterans, have greatly influenced modern rock music over the last three decades. Denmark’s Roskilde Festival recently revealed that on July 5, Dave Grohl and his bandmates will grace the stage, marking their sole Scandinavian performance in 2024.
Foo Fighters’ 11th album, titled But Here We Are, was released in June. The band presented it as a tribute to the transformative influence of music, friendship, and family. The album received widespread critical acclaim, praised by many for its profound and emotive exploration of personal hardships.
“According to Anders Wahrén, Program Director of Roskilde Festival, Foo Fighters have established their ability to constantly evolve and anticipate the future. Their latest album embraces difficult times and transforms them into a unifying and uplifting experience. We are excited to witness the unfolding of this communal journey at Roskilde Festival this summer.”
