I was looking at my brother's copy of this week's Kerrang! magazine, and I came across an advert for the Carling weekender festival, which takes place in Reading and Leeds in England. I noticed that an act called Fort Minor are scheduled for the Dance Arena... can anyone confirm if this is Mike Shinoda?

Can I get a scan/pic of that?

I'll check the Carling site anyways, but just for proof.

I can't find anything other than them being confirmed for Pukkelpop, and I probably won't be able to get a scan until tomorrow, or later tonight at the earliest. But I assure you, it's an official advertisment and it's a new stage, so it's a possibility that most sites don't have anything up right now. I will try to get it scanned, though. :)

Download Festival happened a few weeks back in Donnington & Leeds. Unless it's for next year. :unsure: but they don't normally advertise this early on.

I think this is ready to be posted as news, i believe it & there&#39;s a source now to. Even if it is speculation, it&#39;s still news worthy IMO.

The only thing is, even though the festival organisers seem to have confirmed that Fort Minor will be there, there is nothing to be found on the matter on the official FM site or even Fortminor.co.uk.

the only confirmed dates are at Pukkelpop, staged in Belgium. and FM is also playing at Lowlands, Holland.

Pukkelpop - August 18th - 20th
Lowlands - August 19th - 21st

*Carling Weekend (Reading & Leeds)* - 26th - 28th

it looks likely because they are in Europe so they might play the Carling Festivals.

on the site i posted earlier it says that FM will play Reading on the 26th and then on the 27th they will play Leeds (Friday and Saturday)

that means that FM will most likely over lap with some big bands such as The Killers, and The Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

No, sorry. I&#39;d say I&#39;ll have had it scanned by tomorrow night at the latest, if you still want it.

Dean

The one dated 9th of July 2005. Basically, it was released last Wednesday and it has Trivium on the cover.

JJ

I know. I believe you guys. All news needs a source, though.

i just got the magazine - it definatly say that Fort Minor are playing.

however they are only playing at Reading - which means iam trashed because iam going to Leeds&#33;&#33;

i have some scans but my photobucket account wont let me put them on for some reason.

[edit]: i got it working

close up^^^ (top left)

just underneath the close up there was a &#39;*&#39; which is near the fort minor sign. this indicates that they will play reading only

seems to be a strange line up. lemon jelly are quite good, but the audio bullys are naff i think - i hope fort minor arent just about repetitive beats that get old straight away. i dont think they will be - just seems odd putting them along side acts like the two i mentioned before

is this news worthy now?

I noticed JJ87&#39;s post just as I was about to scan the page last night. I think this is probably newsworthy now...
