Metric’s Emily Haines and James Shaw (Metric and Broken Social Scene) will perform a rare acoustic set at LIVE at Squamish on Aug. 20.

Metric had been scheduled to headline the main stage on the first night of the festival, but will now perform on the following night (Aug. 21) ahead of Weezer.

“I’m really looking forward to playing two sets at LIVE at Squamish with two very different sounds – a stripped-down, acoustic session on Saturday followed by a raw, rock-out on Sunday,” said Haines.

“Being part of such a great line-up and in one of Canada’s most beautiful settings is a perfect combination for an awesome summer music festival.”

This schedule change has created an opportunity for mash-up artist Girl Talk to move over to the main stage Saturday night.

LIVE at Squamish takes place Aug. 20 and 21 at Hendrickson Fields & Logger Sports Ground in Squamish.
