    Roskilde Preview: Coldplay Return to Festival After 6 Years (full lineup released today)

    20030627roskilde2a.jpgOasis, Kanye and Coldplay will entertain the masses at the popular Roskilde music festival this year, writes the Copenhagen Post (online).


    The complete line-up for this year’s Roskilde Festival has been released today with more than a few recognisable names on the list. The array of performers, which includes more than 150 names from almost all continents and genres, will take to the festival's seven stages from 2 to 5 July.


    The Roskilde Festival, which is one of Europe's largest music festivals, will include big name acts such as Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Oasis, Kanye West and Coldplay. Among the acts, the venue will also cater for 74 new artists who will perform in front of a crowd of more than 75,000 spectators. Despite previous concerns about the disappearing available space for camping, Roskilde Festival will continue to provide camping facilities and booths offering food, drinks, bathing areas, a supermarket and free cloakroom.

    The theme for this year's campaign is entitled Green Footsteps, and will focus on bringing global climate change awareness to participants. The campaign includes CO2-friendly concerts on both the Odeon Stage and the Sustainable Stage, as well as a camping area christened the Climate Community. Deposits gathered from empty bottles at the festival will be donated to projects in Bangladesh and India, which are largely affected by climate change.


    The action officially kicks off on 28 June with an array of experiences, events and activities leading up to the main acts. Since 1971, Roskilde Festival has donated over 100 million kroner to charity.
