ROSKILDE LINE-UP LOOKING GOOD

Pearl Jam, Gomez, Flaming Lips, Iron Maiden line up for Denmark's equivalent - or some would argue the superior to - the UK's Glastonbury Festival...

Gomez, Pearl Jam, THE FLAMING LIPS, IRON MAIDEN and THE CURE are to play the Danish Roskilde 2000 festival, held from June 29 – July 3.

The 70,000 capacity event near Copenhagen in Denmark will also feature performances from Chumbawamba, Groove Armada, Smog, Rico, Calexico and Femi Kuti.

More acts will be announced over the coming weeks.

All profits made from the festival traditionally goes to charities including Amnesty International and War Child.
