Jam in the 'Dam
Melkweg, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
March 16-17-18-19, 2008

First off, we want to thank everyone for participating in our additional artists' poll. The poll on our message board has gotten around 13,000 views in less than three weeks. We tried to narrow the choices to artists that had expressed interest in past years, and who would also contribute to an amazing show.

Well, as hard as we tried, we couldn't narrow it down to two more bands. So, we're bringing three! Six bands, you ask, how is that going to work in three nights? It won't. So we are expanding the festival to four nights!

We are very excited to add the Disco Biscuits, Dark Star Orchestra, and Perpetual Groove. These were the top three vote-getters in the poll. You spoke, we listened. But we had to get very creative to accomplish this lineup. Here's how:

The festival will now span four nights, March 16-17-18-19, 2008. We are also taking the unusual step of announcing the schedule concurrent with this announcement, so folks can get a gander at exactly how it will work. In short, DSO will only play the first two nights in the Max. Umphrey's McGee and the Disco Biscuits will each have one night off out of four to potentially come and act as fans/guest musicians. We will play Tea Leaf Green, PGroove, and Lotus in the Old Hall each night, but only for March 16-17-18. On the 19th, the only show will be Umphrey's McGee and the Biscuits in the Max, doing slightly longer sets.
