What Just Happened: Roskilde Festival 2019

The line-up for this year’s Roskilde Festival was as eclectic as it was exciting. From iconic pop stars like Robyn and Janelle Monáe, to rap gods such as Wu-Tang Clan (!!!) and Cardi B, to classic rockers like Robert Plant and Bob Dylan, there was truly something for everyone.

Though of course nothing beats hearing these incredible artists live, capturing images of them on the stage can be just as absorbing. How musicians move and interact with the crowd, especially in big spaces like Roskilde, is fascinating to watch. We made sure to get shots of our favorite acts throughout the festival so that you can not only remember the music, but also the aesthetic impact of each show.
