Waco Jesus and Byzantine are awesome.


anonymous 5/22/2019 2:50:11 PM

Really don't understand how this fest is still going. They've only had 500 people turnout each year for the whole weekend.


anonymous 5/22/2019 3:14:27 PM

500 X $80 = $40,000. Wouldn't that cover the cost of this line-up? Not exactly breaking the bank for that headliner.


anonymous 5/22/2019 4:15:05 PM

that's a lot of bands for a festival literally no one was clamoring to attend.


anonymous 5/22/2019 4:28:53 PM

"500 X $80 = $40,000. Wouldn't that cover the cost of this line-up? Not exactly breaking the bank for that headliner." They're probably paying in the realm of 10k for each headliner. A lot of these bands probably aren't getting paid, but the national touring bands definitely are and probably getting more than they would on a normal show. Then there's the cost of the actual campgrounds, all the infrastructure and shit, and yeah, it's surprising they're still around.

Waco Jesus and Byzantine are awesome. LOL. No. Waco Jesus is pathetic obese edgelord metal no one of consequence likes and Byzantine have like 500 fans who think they're the greatest thing in the world, including that mongo Jose from Liquid Metal, and the rest of people who know who they are acknowledge them as a F rate Lamb of God.

Nails should have been on this

Thank you to the promoter of this festival for making sure the Rose City Skinheads got their due.

Kingmaker got tired of stealing from Architects so they started Pains and tried stealing from Full of Hell. Pack it in nerds

Didn't they used to have the Gathering of the Juggalos at this place?


anonymous 5/24/2019 12:28:33 PM

Glad it's not full of shitty pizza thrash this year. Every Chad in liberal arts college was creaming over the sub-par Anthrax rip offs the last few years.


anonymous 5/27/2019 12:48:19 PM

Rednecks with maga hats and Taxation Is Theft shirts are stoked


anonymous 8/30/2019 7:23:05 AM
