Latest changes & accompanying notes:
June 15th: No further changes to report or
indeed anticipated. I'm off to Kentucky myself in a matter of hours, so... see
you there! Wahoo!
Elephant Micah invited to
replace Marissa Nadler. "Indiana's Elephant Micah sound a lot like the kind
of basement wave psychedelia that made up the bulk of the Boston Twisted Village
label throughout the 90s, punk primitive groups like Crystallized Movements,
Luxurious Bags and Bongloads of Righteous Boo"
June 11th: According to Keith from Kemado
Records, Marissa Nadler "will need to cancel her upcoming gig at
Terrastock due to unforeseen complications with the recording of her new album.
We are all extremely sorry that this has to happen (particularly so last
minute), but I'm sure you understand that the completion of her new album is a
June 4th: The schedule should hopefully
remain reasonably stable now. Team Brick have been slotted into Sunday at
12:00 midday. There have been some minor tweaks to the rest of Sunday and the
running order on Friday, but none of the artists are playing on a different day
to that previously notified.
May 29th: Aside from the addition of Team Brick
(day and time to
be confirmed), no further changes to the line-up
to report, and Hush Arbors flights have all been sorted out now.
Kohoutek will be featuring a Special Guest Star during their set. Sleeping
Pill's Georgia Hubley has asked us to point out that Sleeping Pill is NOT Yo
La Tengo playing YLT music under a fake name. Hope that's clear.
May 6th: The culmination of a couple of
weeks worth of frantic behind-scenes work, and we now have a reasonably stable
list of confirmed performers and set times for each day. Tragically, due to a
bereavement the Bevis Frond have had to drop out of this year's
Terrastock festival. We're very sorry about this and I'm sure you will join us
in passing along our sincere condolences and best wishes to Nick Saloman and his
family. Terrascope Audio Entertainments are hoping to be able to put on a
separate Bevis Frond show later in the year to help make up in some small way
for this huge disappointment. All other acts will be happening as described
above, although please be aware that Hush Arbors are Subject to
Confirmation for the moment due to complications with flights which we are
endeavouring to rectify as a matter of priority.
April 18th: Special guest stars "Sleeping Pill"
(not their real name) confirmed for Friday 20th June - note that Friday's set
times will all be changing slightly as a result. Don't miss this one!
April 2nd: Some minor tweaks and changes. The
American Revolution (featuring Bill Doss of Olivia Tremor Control / Sunshine
Fix) and Robert Schneider (Apples in Stereo etc) have been added, with Kohoutek
moving into Sunday to make way. The above timings are still VERY
March 8th: We are
pleased to announce that after months of negotiation
and nail-biting, Entrance Band and
Kohoutek can now be added to the confirmed list
of artists for T7. Please note however that we are
going to have to considerably change the start times
and maybe a few bands on the Sunday, so stand by for
a further update before making
March 3rd: A tentative schedule has now been
announced. Please note that this is very much liable
to change, and Terrastock 7 can accept no
responsibility whatsoever should your travel and
accommodation plans be thrown into disarray.
Meanwhile, the on-off Acid Mothers Temple and the
Cosmic Inferno saga continues to unfold. The
situation as of 09:00 today is that we will
definitely be seeing Kawabata Makoto perform, but
possibly accompanied by some as yet unnamed
musicians. I hasten to add that this is no fault of
either Terrastock or Makoto, both of whom are
working extremely hard to bring you the most
exciting possible performance under what can only be
described as difficult circumstances.
February 19th: We have secured confirmation that
Helena Espvall (of Espers) and Masaki Batoh
(of Ghost) will be performing as a duo. We are
also led to believe that they will be accompanying
Damon and Naomi during their performance as well.
February 11th: Unfortunately Pantaleimon has
had to pull out, due to a proposed U.S. tour falling
through at this time. Needless to say we are very
disappointed about this, and sincerely hope
Pantaleimon can perform in America very soon.
