Why would GV add JAMC to the poster if they're not going to play. If you're going to say you heard they're not playing the very same day they're announced as being in the lineup, you sort of have to back that up...
Looks like Fields, Ratatat and !!! switched days ... and three acts - DJ Heather, Pop Levi, Yeva - fell off the Saturday lineup, probably just because they were on the bottom line and Mike Relm bumped them down off the poster
Back after being a lurker since 2005.
I had to post about this supposed JAMC not playing. That is utterly ridiculous that they would put them on the lineup for like an hour or two and then take them down. Someone said earlier that someone at GV likely "jumped the gun", but that' just insane.
I REALLY, REALLY want them to play, and I think this whole thing just needs to be confirmed. Especially since Cocteau Twins had a similiar situation of reuniting and then cancelling some time afterwards. I don't want that to be the case here.
Does that person work at Capitol?
Hunting has been part of our society since the first Europeans came over and shot buffalo and Native Americans and whatnot.

Oh I just love posts like that......"I know a guy who is very reliable". BS.
The Jesus & Mary Chain are on Frank's poster too. I don't know what you guys are talking about.
I trust the person I asked. They would know. And they said it wasn't to be. A shame cos I would have come over from the UK if it was. I was looking at booking flights when this person sent me a message to say it wasn't happening. You can believe it's BS if you like. I just saved myself a few hundred pounds on flights etc. So I am happy.
How are we even sure this is a real poster...they are easy to create, ask menik
NME reports JAMC on the bill as well.
Hope my source is wrong, I really do.
always loved this song
I take it all back - I have it confirmed that JAMC are playing. My source has come back to me again.
It wasn't BS when I posted it. Not as I believed anyways.
Two things I cannot believe
Interpol/Arctic Monkeys bigger than Sonic Youth??
