Other Notes:

- The Linkin Park stage was already set up with fans in the crowd before this show was cancelled.

- There were three announcements on the cancellation of this show. First, Linkin Park posted an announcement on the band's website that read, "We have been forced to cancel tonight's concert at the Hultsfred Festival in Sweden and tomorrow night's show at the Greenfields Festival in Interlaken, Switzerland as guitarist Brad Delson is ill and under doctor's orders to rest for a few days. We sincerely regret this unavoidable cancellation and apologize to fans for any disappointment caused." Next, Mike updated his blog to say, "to all the swedish fans: we are extremely sorry about the cancellation of the show tonight. we all sincerely wanted to come and play for you, but our boy brad is sick. this afternoon, the doctor ordered that brad not travel, so the show became an impossibility. we were obviously very disappointed and frustrated. we rarely cancel, and i know this is the second time we've had to cancel playing there. the band feels very bad about this uncontrollable situation, and hope to make it up to you as soon as we can…", and finally the band released a statement to Swedish press saying, "We are immensely disappointed and frustrated to be unable to play for you at Hultsfred today. We were so looking forward to entertaining and experiencing the crowd at your amazing festival but illness means it is totally impossible. We hope to make it up to all our Swedish fans as soon as we can."

- As mentioned above, this was the second time that the band had to cancel their appearance at the festival, the first coming in 2003.

- With all festivals, we list the other bands that were playing before Linkin Park on the same stage. In the case of this show, we are unsure of who exactly was on the Main Stage before LP. If you have any information and can help us out, please let us know! We have narrowed it down to most of these bands likely playing on the same day as Linkin Park.
