Festival: Rock en Seine

Details have emerged of some of the first names on the bill for this year's Rock en Seine festival.

The three-day festival is held at Domaine National de Saint-Cloud on the west of Paris. The event has been runing since 2003, in recent years attracting over 100,000 spectators.

Last year's headliners were Arctic Monkeys, The Prodigy and Queens of the Stone age. Lana Del Rey, The Hives, Portisheaed and Airbourne were also on the bill.

Those on the bill this year include The Chemical Brothers, The Libertines, Alt-J, The Offspring,  Jungle, Fauve, Tame Impala, Interpol, Etienne Daho, Rodrigo y Gabriela, John Butler trio, Benjamine Clementine, Mark Lenegan band.

 There had been rumours that Metallica would be at the top of the bill, but seems  not to be the case. Metallica are headlining the Reading festival on August 29 and Leeds festival on August 30, leaving August 28 a possible date.

 The band are however playing in Moscow on August 27, so perhaps it was the logistics of bringing the Metallica show to Paris from Moscow in such a short period of time that was the difficulty.

The Rock en Seine festival takes place on August 28, 2 and 30.
