Kanye West, Nine Inch Nails, Oasis, Lil Wayne and Coldplay are set to headline the 39th annual Roskilde Festival, to be held July 2-5 outside of Copenhagen, Denmark.
Additional artists slated to perform at the seven-stage event, which is the longest-running outdoor music festival in the world, include Lily Allen, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Pet Shop Boys, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Slipknot, The Mars Volta, Royksopp and Gang Gang Dance, among others.
Organizers have announced an environmentally conscious theme for the 2009 Roskilde dubbed “Green Footsteps,” which will raise global climate change awareness among the estimated 75,000-plus attendees. The festival’s Odeon and Sustainable Stages will host CO2-friendly concerts, and donations will go towards environmental projects in India and Bangladesh.
Tickets for the complete Roskilde Festival experience--including a four-day warm-up that kicks off June 28--are now on sale for approximately $281 U.S. dollars and available for purchase via the official Roskilde website .
