SECOND ROSKILDE INVESTIGATION OPENED

Pressure from the relatives of the nine dead lead to another examination of the tragedy...

Pressure from relatives of the PEARL JAM fans who died after the crowd crush at ROSKILDE MUSIC FESTIVAL in DENMARK last summer have led to a second investigation being launched.

According to reports, a further investigation is being opened because families were unhappy with the initial police report, which found that poor sound caused the crowd surge. The band were exonerated and no blame for the tragedy was apportioned, "a chain of unfortunate circumstances" being blamed instead.

It is believed the role of festival organisers and rescue teams, and the reasons for the delay in halting the band's performance, will be more thoroughly examined in the new investigation.
