    due to an injury to muse's bassist, mogwai moved to fill the headline slot on the second stage, playing from 8.15 to 8.55. david jack replaced john cummings due to illness.

    from ryan fields:

    this was my first time seeing them. they played for 40-45 minutes. i'd been checking the site to see what to expect, and it looked like they got to play longer because muse were out. it was absolutely incredible.

    from chris thompson:

    with regards to the concert, it was amazing. because muse didn't play, the order of bands was mixed up (i wish i would have know before i had arrived). wanting a good place for mogwai i left interpol early. mogwai started playing early at 8:10 and continued on until 8:50. setlist was mogwai fear satan, hunted by a freak, summer, killing all the flies, and my father my king. much to my surprise, the crowd was huge and most knew the break down of every song (hundreds of people were sprinting from interpol's set to see mogwai play). sound quality was amazing as was the crowd.
