Dillinger Escape Plan NOT playing Dirt Fest

Monday, August 14, 2006 8:41 AM PT

Despite previous announcements to the contrary, Dillinger Escape Plan will not be playing Michigan's Dirt Fest on Saturday. The band has issued the following statement:

"There has been a lot of confusion as to whether or not we are actually playing this fest coming up called Dirtfest. Their website has us advertised as playing, ours does not, blah blah. WE ARE NOT PLAYING. We apologize to anyone who bought tickets just because they thought that we were playing, even though it is not our apology to give. We have never confirmed to play that show, and although we talked to the promoters about it, never signed a contract nor received any kind of agreement of any kind. One day after discussing it we were just announced as playing it. It is a pain in the ass for us to look like assholes now to people who have paid to see us thinking that we would be there, but again, it is not something we ever confirmed to play, and it was poor decision making on their part to advertise us before confirming anything and at this point in the game is just plain old false advertising. Again, unfortunately, the person who is affected the most is the one who paid to see us play only to find out that we are not, and we apologize on behalf of all parties involved, regardless of who is at fault. Go and have a good time anyway, there are a bunch of bands playing, some of whom you should surely find to be decent if you don't like them already. In the future, if it is not posted on this website or on our www.dillingerescapeplan.com site, don't believe that shit!"
