PARIS, Aug 25 (AFP) - The White Stripes, the Chemical Brothers, Muse and Joss Stone are to rock Paris this weekend when a new music festival, started just a year ago, opens its gates to top-notch bands.

Those bands are among 23 set to stir the normally tranquil and chic western suburb of Saint-Cloud during the two-day "Rock en Seine" event starting late Friday.

More than 35,000 people have already snapped up tickets (EUR 36 for one day, EUR 60 for the two) for the performances, which are to take place in a park next to woodland on the river Seine, organisers said.

Other bands playing include a number of US and British groups with solid fan bases, among them: Sonic Youth, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Muse, Hoggboy and Blanche.
