[b]Bush[/b], [b]Republica[/b] and [a]Chumbawamba[/a] help make [b]H2000[/b] a big success...

After BUSH, Chumbawamba, REPUBLICA and GUS GUS rocked Istanbul for Turkey's first major outdoor rock festival, organisers now say it is set to become an annual event.

Also on the bill of the H2000 festival, held on June 16 - 18, were Lamb, Apollo 440 and local bands including Aylin Aslim, Kargo, Duman and Mor Ve Otesi.

In addition to the bungee-jumping and rock-climbing activities at the festival, there were two dance tents with DJs including Westbam, Andy Smith, Christian Smith, Skylab 2000 and Miles Holloway.

The festival site was located at the Omerli Dam on the outskirts of the city, where a waterpark is being built.

Organisers say they were overwhelmed by positive feedback from the artists and audience, and aim to put H2000 among the ranks of premier festivals around the world.
