COLDPLAY TO HEADLINE WITNNESS

The Irish event unveils its bill for this year...

COLDPLAY

have been confirmed as headliners for this year’s WITNNESS FESTIVAL.

The band, already confirmed to play this year’s T In The Park and V festivals in the UK, head a list of acts including Zwan, Streets and Flaming Lips

so far confirmed for the Irish event.

Witnness takes place at Punchestown Racecourse, County Kildare, on July 12 and 13. Other acts scheduled to perform include Polyphonic Spree, The Datsuns, Echo And The Bunnymen, Supergrass, [a][/a]

and Lemon Jelly.

Coldplay were the biggest selling artist in Ireland last year and their addition to the bill represents a major coup for organisers.

The event – now in its fourth year – enjoyed a sell-out attendance in 2002 and demand is likely to prove equally strong this time around. Tickets go on sale at 8am on April 11. Fans are advised to check the official festival site [url=]witnness.com for further updates.
