truthstar 2/14/2012 11:17:45 AM

anonymous 2/14/2012 1:04:38 PM

Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Beach Boys, and Alice Cooper are relevant? Your dad is stoked.

anonymous 2/14/2012 1:05:05 PM


anonymous 2/14/2012 1:15:55 PM

cgrind3000 2/14/2012 1:57:06 PM

Why the fck is this on lambgoat? All the people on my Facebook who think they have "unique" music taste are stoked...

metalmetal 2/14/2012 2:16:35 PM

If this is going to be on Lambgoat, why not coverage of the Grammys?

ineedsalt 2/14/2012 2:34:54 PM

TheLoudestGuyInTheRoom 2/14/2012 2:49:34 PM

Jonny Craig is stoked, will go into full on wigger mode for Ludacris' set, when he isn't busy shooting up in the venue porta-potties

knuckleduster 2/14/2012 2:58:55 PM

Must be one of those local DIY festivals. A day to remember will probably headline.

buddy_ackerman 2/14/2012 3:25:08 PM

yuk, worst bonaroo ever.

anonymous 2/14/2012 3:33:14 PM

i hear from a very good source refused are going to be playing this.

anonymous 2/14/2012 4:21:42 PM

Going for Moon Taxi and then leaving.

anonymous 2/15/2012 7:05:21 AM

Radiohead, rhcp, aziz ansari, bad brains and thats about it, definitely not worth $250+ for a ticket

anonymous 2/15/2012 7:22:56 AM

how does kverlertak get on all these corporate sponsered fests (they all are) constantly? there's an infinite amount of other bands that people have heard of. the lack of metal is disapointing.

HailSanta 2/15/2012 9:11:43 AM

At least last year they had Gwar and a couple of doomy bands. Not even worth sneaking into this year...

anonymous 2/15/2012 10:19:44 AM

Bands that are ready to sell out are stoked.

StevenGlasl 2/15/2012 2:25:05 PM

mac miller and bad brains. no one else

cannibal 2/15/2012 11:29:41 PM

I listen to a lot of types of music besides metal and I do like some bands on here, but for real why is this posted on here?

anonymous 2/16/2012 9:25:17 AM

This lineup sucks for the most part. So many 'flavor of the month' bands.

anonymous 2/16/2012 12:50:27 PM

If you like more than just metal, hardcorec and shitty alt roc then you know this is pretty legit. Some good bands missing but whatever, still shouldn't be on here though

anonymous 2/18/2012 9:39:37 AM

Skrillex? Really? Anyway, Emmure should be on this

anonymous 2/20/2012 7:25:38 AM

Showing up for Ludacris; leaving immediately after.
