Brixton in south London hosts the event - and Pulp are among the bands confirmed. Still waiting for Robbie though...

THE BEASTIE BOYS have announced details of their annual TIBETAN FREEDOM CONCERT, which this year will be held at BROCKWELL PARK in LONDON on September 15, NME.COM can reveal.

The Beasties themselves will headline, along with Pulp, Joe Strummer and many more acts yet to be confirmed – and they are currently targeting Robbie Williams to play the event.

In addition, an all-night dance party at Brixton Academy is being planned with a special guest DJ line-up yet to be announced.

Speaking from his press office in New York, Adam Yauch told NME.COM why a performer like Robbie would be a valuable asset to the Tibetan Freedom cause.

He said: “It’s great when we can find an artist with a fanbase who might not know so much about the situation in Tibet, or who doesn’t overlap with some of the other performers. That way, new people find out what’s going on.”

However, a spokesperson for Robbie told NME.COM that the star had not yet confirmed the event.
