 The Cannes 2020 Label: instructions for use © LOIC VENANCE / AFP No film will receive an award this year at the Cannes Festival, but several dozen will nonetheless receive an exceptional label. We explain to you. It is this Wednesday evening that the selection of the Cannes Film Festival 2020 will be revealed. A festival which should have taken place from May 12 to 23, but which was canceled due to the Covid 19 .

The Roskilde Festival , which had been around since 1971 when it was originally known as the Sound Festival , had long had a reputation as one of Roskilde was a beacon of how things should be done. In the years leading up to 2000 , it had grown exponentially to the point that organizers had to reduce

Pearl Jam have paid tribute to the lives lost on the 20th anniversary of the Roskilde Festival tragedy.

The Seattle rock legends shared a touching post to mark 20 years since that fateful day, when nine young men were crushed to death during their set at Roskilde, held near Copenhagen in Denmark.

“A normal festival show day…show up 5 hours ahead. Wait for your slot. I barely remember it…” the post reads. “Sunny, I think. Lou Reed played, I think. Then rain and wind. But nothing has been the same since.”

An accompanying clip features nine flames set to a black background, soundtracked by a live snippet from Pearl Jam’s “Love Boat Captain,” a 2002 song which references the tragedy.

On June 30, 2000 , Pearl Jam performed at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark when an unimaginable tragedy occurred. Though they had reduced attendance to 70,000 - from 90,000 in '98 - Roskilde was unprepared for the combination of high attendance, rainy weather, and the crowd's excitement at

It has absolutely nothing to do with the Roskilde tragedy . Violent behavior is intentional. Keep in mind that Roskilde 2000 was a festival show, not a Pearl Jam show, which means that instead of "Our lives will never be the same , but we know that is nothing compared to the grief of the families

In the live cut, frontman Eddie Vedder tweaks the lyric to reflect the march of time: “Lost nine friends I’m getting to know….every day. And if our lives became too long, would it add to our regret?”

Eight young men, aged 17-26, suffocated in a crowd crush as Pearl Jam took the stage at Roskilde 2000. A ninth man died five days later in hospital.

Vedder and Co. were left heartbroken following the catastrophe, which also left 43 people injured. The bandmates even considered splitting up the group.

In the aftermath, several inquiries were conducted though no charges were filed. An initial report published in December 2000 found that “a chain of unfortunate circumstances” led to the deaths after poor sound in the back prompted concert-goers to push forward.

A second investigation, published in the summer of 2002, found “there is no reason to presume that something punishable has been done.”

Police seek witnesses, video of Galway roundabout accident .
The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary is looking to speak with anyone who saw a large transport truck roll over in a busy Galway intersection. Police officers were called to the roundabout, which connects Pitts Memorial Drive to Galway, at 11:20 a.m. on June 19. A transport truck with an attached tanker rolled onto its passenger side while in the roundabout. The accident resulted in a spill, which was later cleaned up by a cleaning crew. The driver of the truck, a man, 31, was taken to hospital for treatment of what police called non-life-threatening injuries. Accident investigators are seeking witnesses to the incident as well as dashcam video in the area of the roundabout.
