The Rolling Stones have been confirmed as the third headliners of Denmark's Roskilde festival.

They join previously announced headliners Arctic Monkeys at the annual bash, which takes place from June 29 to July 6, 2014.

A statement from the festival's organiser says they have been pursuing the British rockers for some time. "For years, we have dreamed of the moment when we got the opportunity to reunite The Rolling Stones with the Orange Stage at Roskilde Festival," says head of programme Anders Wahrén.

The Roskilde line-up also includes Damon Albarn, Outkast, Warpaint, Merchandise, Deerhunter, Earl Sweatshirt, Haim, Kasabian, Major Lazer, Moderat, Pusha T, Rob Zombie, Trentemøller and MØ.

The announcement is the latest in a series of European dates for The Rolling Stones.

The Rolling Stones will play:

Pinkpop Festival, Holland (June 7)
Berlin Waldbühne (10)
Düsseldorf Esprit Arena (19)
Rome Circus Maximus (22)
TW Classic Festival, Belgium (28)
Roskilde Festival, Denmark (29 to July 6)


The Rolling Stones recently postponed a series of upcoming shows in Australia and New Zealand until October, following the suicide of Mick Jagger's partner, fashion designer L'Wren Scott.

Tickets for Roskilde festival are on sale now, priced at 1910 DKK (£210). To check the availability of Roskilde tickets and get all the latest listings, head to NME.COM/tickets.
