Britain's top all-girl band Sugababes are set to do battle with the princess of pop - they've signed up to perform on the same stage as BRITNEY SPEARS at this summer's ROCK IN RIO FESTIVAL in Lisbon, Portugal.

In what is fast becoming one of the year's (04) most impressive musical gatherings, Spears and the HOLE IN THE HEAD stars will perform with BLACK EYED PEAS and JOAO PEDRO PAIS on 5 June (04) as part of the week-long event.

Alicia Keys has also been added to the line-up. She'll perform on the event's final day (06JUN04), sharing the stage with Sting and ALEJANDRO SANZ.

More than 70 international acts have signed up to play at the BELA VISTA PARCK, including Sir Paul McCartney, Metallica, Peter Gabriel, GUNS N' ROSES and Evanescence.
