New York festival lineup unveiled

| 19 September 2005

Jet, Interpol, Death From Above 1979, The Lemonheads, and Gang Of Four are also among the acts confirmed for the event, which will be held on 1-2 October.

Separated by the 'Narrows' section of New York Bay, two concerts will take place simultaneously each day at two waterfront ballparks in Coney Island and Staten Island.

Contrary to previous reports, the festival will not work like V Festival where the same bill rotates over the two days - instead there will be four separate concerts with completely different bills.

The full lineup is as follows:

1 October

Staten Island, Richmond County Ballpark 
The Killers
New York Dolls
British Sea Power
Tegan And Sara
The Ordinary Boys
Lake Trout

Coney Island, KeySpan Park 
Gang Of Four
Built To Spill

Death From Above 1979
