A message from the ACM: 
Monday 16th re: Acm/ live club stage.

On Friday it was announced that Hundred Reasons would be playing the headline slot on the Friday of GuilFest. This was incorrect, it was to be an acoustic set from Colin and Andy only. This was an error on our (ACM) part. It should have been billed 'Hundred Reasons (Colin and Andy Acoustic). GuilFest as an organisation had no knowledge of this when the performance was announced.  The only festival show that they will be playing as a full band is Sonisphere. Our intention was not to mislead and we apologise to everyone involved, (especially fans of both Hundred Reasons and GuilFest) if that was the outcome. We have now had a statement from Colin and Andy saying that they will NOT be making this appearance.
