This summer's festival bills start to take shape already...

Garbage and Red Hot Chili Peppers are the first bands announced for the ROSKILDE FESTIVAL 2002.

This year’s event in Denmark has been confirmed to take place over the four days of June 27-30 and is considered by many to be the closest festival in spirit to the Glastonbury Festival in the UK. More bands are to be announced in the coming weeks.

At the event in 2000, nine fans were killed in the crowd during a performance by Pearl Jam. Last year’s event featured increased safety and security features.
