Damon albarn is also included (listed under The Good, The Bad & The Queen) but Fatboy Slim has also been involved at some point.

So know we have 3 months to figure out who will be on stage that night. :D
I guess it´s Arena. Hard to fit all those people on Pavillion´s stage...

They'll come up with something. Maybe the percussion guys will hang in rope from the tent or something.

Seriously, it's rather interesting what's going to happen. I'm gonna hazard a guess and say it'll be a party regardless.
Not all of the acts will come. And as the topic say it will be at Arena
I think that Wahren said to Soundvenue that it will be Damon Albarn who plans this, so we'll probably see him. Paul McCartney also went on stage with them, last time they were in England, so I guess he could show up. I mean, he's playing another stage moments before this one
!!!Arena Party is back!!!! :D :D :D :D :D
From that list we have 3 artist and group on this years lineup, Jupiter & Okwess International, Kate Tempest and Paul McCartney.

Also there is a bunch of names from the previous years line ups.
Tony Allen is around. Albarn appeared on his last album. I'm sure he'll show up :)
I have seen them in London. It was the best gig ever, outside by a station, just non-stop with different people coming on all the time. But won't be all those people I do not think. Although saw McCartney with them so expect to see him again.
To any official RF people reading along here (if any):

Will there at any point be an announcement with the specific artists guesting this event - or do we just have to stick around for the whole five hours to avoid missing potential favorites?

Yep, me too!! I´m sure sir Paul will show up...

And I just love this quote : "We now have the privilege of sharing some of the artists that will be performing at Arena on 4 July. And this is just the start! There will be quite a few additional special and surprising guests on the night as well."

That´s not all folks...!!!
:D Roskilde are really putting on the mother of all closing parties with Africa Express , a serious line up of musicians with guests, including the legendary Warren Ellis of Dirty Three ,(probably the best 3 piece around ever ) NOT TO BE MISSED. :D
Was the ending of the concert just a gimmick? I hope so because I don't want Albarn to be mad at Roskilde because I really need that Blur concert to happen.
