I think what Jeff means is we're talking about a *prog* fest here...prog festsusually showcase bands with minimal-to-zilcho mainstream commercialpotential, since it's about the music and not who's outselling who...and since Nektar haven't been around for a while--quite a while, I believe--why wouldNektar necessarily be more of a headlining draw than a band like Le Orme.Sure, there's a little bias involved, not being a Nektar fan and being a fanof Le Orme's music. Anyone who saw Le Orme at ProgFest '97 orlast year's Baja Prog knows how kickass Le Orme are in a live setting.I don't what the deal is with a band like that withdrawing from a festbecause they're just one time slot away from headlining. Too bad foreverybody who was looking forward to seeing them, who haven't yet.They'll be missing out. :(E-Man

Wow, I have no idea what I was thinking. Of course all of the discs I was talking about are Djam Karet. How I got that out of Greg's post I have no idea. Sorry about the mix-up.
