Massive Attack out, BSS in


This news just out regarding Sunday's Virgin Fest lineup: Sunday headliners Massive Attack have had to pull out, due to visa problems. Local heroes Broken Social Scene have stepped in.

"With Massive Attack forced to cancel, the V-Fest organizers have asked Broken Social Scene to headline the inaugural Virgin Music Festival on Toronto Island. BSS launched this summer's festival season on the Island and now as the final act to perform at the Virgin Festival this Sunday are honoured to close it the same way."

Whether this is good or bad will depend on your fandom. If you're of the later camp, refunds can be obtained at point of purchase until noon on Sunday.
