Eagles of Death Metal

The Saturday night music headliners for this year's Frresports on 4 Freeze event have been announced as Eagles of Death Metal.

The Californian alternative rockers will play on Saturday 31st October at this year's event in Battersea Power Station, joined by Calvin Harris who will be on the wheels of steel for the night. Also playing on the night are recently formed super-group [what, another one? - Ed] Sweethead, featuring guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen from Queens of the Stone Age, Eddi Nappi (bass) and Norm Block (drums - both from the Mark Lanegan band) and singer Serrina Sims.

They join Orbital and Pendulum (DJ set) who will play the Friday night and Friendly Fires and Chase and Status who play the Sunday night.

The event will feature three days of world-class winter sports competition, with many of the world's finest skiers and snowboarders competing less than four months before the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Battersea Power Station will once again be transformed into an international competition-standard snowboarding and freeski venue featuring a 32m high ski jump and over 500 tonnes of snow.

Tickets are on sale now, priced at £35 for a day pass, £85 for a season pass (3 days), with a child's day ticket at £15 and a child's season ticket at £35 (all prices + booking fee).
