Stone Roses to top festival bill

The Stone Roses have been confirmed as headliners at T In The Park next year.
The comeback band announced last month that they were to reform for a series of live shows and set a record by selling 220,000 tickets for three outdoor dates in Manchester in little over an hour.
They announced via their website that they will headline T In The Park, as well as topping the bill at the Benicassim Festival and the Fuji Rock Festival.
T In The Park 2012 takes place in Balado, Kinross, between July 6 and 8 with the festival organiser DF Concerts yet to confirm which night the band will appear.
Geoff Ellis, festival director at T In The Park, said: "The Stone Roses are one of the most influential bands of all time.
"To have them headline T In The Park is a dream come true as most people never thought they would see the band perform together ever again.
"The atmosphere will be electric when these boys go on stage and I, for one, absolutely cannot wait."
Band members had long dismissed talk of ever getting back together after falling apart in 1996.
But they buried their differences and announced hometown shows for next summer, plus further dates around the world.
A limited release of tickets for the 19th T In The Park will go on general sale at 9am on Friday December 2.
