Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Mastodon, First Aid Kit and Benjamin Booker have been added to the bill for this year’s Roskilde Festival, which is held in Denmark from June 27th-July 4th.

20 other acts have also signed up today, these include Jamie xx, Beyond Pink, Fossils, Steve Gunn and The Entrepreneurs. The announcement adds to a growing list of festival commitments for Noel Gallagher, who’ll be performing his first UK headline shows at the Calling and T In The Park events off the back of the imminent second High Flying Birds album ‘Chasing Yesterday‘.

“The clarity of a recording space which barely ever played host to more than three bodies shines through,” our review reads. “‘The Dying Of The Light’ holds back where ‘If I Had a Gun’ burned out, easing through close to six minutes with a commendable restraint.”

“The same can be said for ‘You Know We Can’t Go Back’, which whispers but defiantly rocks at an ever-changing world and landmarks now only preserved in memories, where sights and sounds are left in anecdotes, not concrete. It’s an intimate blue plaque to a distant childhood.”
