UK dance duo Disclosure joins Roskilde line-up

Live electronica phenomenon Disclosure are back in Denmark this summer to headline the Roskilde festival, after a year away that saw the British brothers take a Grammy for best dance act.
The house duo are joining acts already announced such as Pharrell Williams, The War on Drugs and Muse, as well as some of the 22 new acts announced on Thursday, which included Florence + The Machine and Minneapolis hip-hop collective Doomtree.
Both Disclosure and Florence + The Machine will take to the stage this year on the back of hotly anticipated new album releases.  Other acts down to perform in the festival, which runs from June  27th to July 4th, include Enslaved, Every Time I Die, G-Eazy, Kwabs, Lamb of God, and St. Vincent.   
The organisers picked out “urban music” and “progressive black metal” as two of the most vibrant genres to be showcased. 
“New acts like Doomtree, G-Eazy and Kwabs show that the urban music scene remains extremely vital with new unbridled stars in the making, and fans of the most hard-hitting riffs should look forward to experienced progressive Norwegian black metal band Enslaved and metalcore from US act Every Time I Die,” they said. 
All-week festival tickets are going for DKK 1940 (€260), which includes access to the festival campsite.
Here's the official video announcing the line up.
