Krantinaari will be joining the lineup as part of Re:Act - a collaboration between Rapolitics, the Danish Institute for Human Rights, and Roskilde Festival. This initiative is part of the Menneskerettighedsalliancen and is supported by Tuborgfondet and the OpEn-Puljen fund.

Over the first three days at Roskilde Festival 2023, they open doors to Re:Act - a vibrant platform featuring experimental performances, inspiring talks, and workshops that explore the role of hip-hop and poetry in both major and intimate human rights struggles. Among many others, you can meet Indian rapper Krantinaari, who skewers the patriarchy in India and raps for equality, along with others like Cuban rapper David D. Omni, who raises his voice for freedom of expression and shares the consequences of the censorship he faces in Cuba. You can also witness YouTuber Peimi breaking down popular hip-hop verses and engaging in discussions about messages and style with the artists behind them. Re:Act gives sound and voice to people’s rights and equips them to defend others'.
