In addition, the following DJs have been lined up for the Pista Pop: Tomás Fernando Flores, Wie Wenzal DJ, Toxicosmos DJ, I Was There, Juan de Pablos, Calcetines & Johann Wald, Blanca dB, Líneas Albiés DJs, Kinki, On Air, José María Rey, Two PIAS DJs, El bueno, el feo y el malo, DJ Mamarracha and Pin y Pon DJs.

The New Pornographers have had to cancel their European tour due to personal reasons according to the announcement issued by their management:

‘We regretfully must inform you that we have had to cancel our trip to Europe this coming July due to Personal Reasons. Sorry that sounds generic, but it's sincere. We most definitely do not like having to cancel shows, and were very excited about returning to Europe but the unforeseen circumstances that have arisen just have made it impossible to do so in July.
Please rest assured though, that everyone in the band is safe, healthy (Physically and most of the time mentally), and chemically Independent and we hope that you are as well.’

The festival will soon announce the name of the band who will be substituting the Canadians, with which the line up for the FIB Heineken 2008 will be closed, with the exception of the winner of the Fast>Track competition.
