Any shot they are added to the Friday lineup? Tour schedule seems to line up. Maybe even JJ solo set? Any rumors out there???

Close enough!

This needs to happen. Hitting NFF for the first time and it would make my weekend. I thought New Basement Tapes was a strong possibility but that fell apart. When was the last time Jim was at NFF, 2013? I believe 2012 was the last year Jacket played there. Come on boys, make it happen!

I buy Folk Fest tickets every year in hopes of a MMJ appearance.  I only have Saturday tickets this year and they are playing Philly that day.  With the Waterfall tour this summer I thought for sure they would be playing NFF.  At this point it's pretty unlikely but who knows.  It would be pretty crazy if MMJ and Roger Waters both played the same day.

or, if they played together ...

I'm all in on MMJ playing on Friday.  I don't see how Jim/MMJ can book a radio festival in Philly and not play Newport.  Jim is on the board...  I think they'll have a packed weekend but will play on Friday.

Unlikely event:  MMJ is the backing band for Roger Waters.

or both

We've been speculating on Inforoo that it's My Morning Jacket mini-set and then they'll be the backing band for Roger Waters.

No gap between sets (just have Roger walk out), the fact that they've done it before at the Love for Levon tribute show, and just because of the great relationship between Jim and the festival. I think it'd be spectacular.

OMG, MMJ is Pink Floyd for a day with Waters at Newport, after we get some of their own great tunes.
Does it get any better than this?!?! :cheesy: :cheesy: :cheesy:
Best rumor ever.  Please make this happen!  :thumbsup:

I'd be more excited if they came up here to Maine after the Boston shows.

Infinitypass (who has a spotless record of leaking/revealing/hinting at Bonnaroo lineups at Inforoo.com) has doubled down on this rumor and is confirming that it will be MMJ backing Roger Waters.

As usual, with internet rumors, please take this with a grain of salt. This person on Inforoo is pretty much always right on the money but it's still not the same as a legit confirmation.

But it's got me excited :)

Again.....I'm trying to reserve my excitement because it's coming from a message board source with a good track record but it's better than nothing.

Hope it happens@
