I was there

Yeah, a fest with headliners that can draw 1500 max and way less than that in mid-sized markets is really going to work. No one will travel for this. Mr. Bungle played at like 3 p.m. at Sick New World.

anonymous 136 days ago

Wow, does Sunday's line-up suck. Replace all the bands with a Scott Vogel acoustic set and this thing gets bumped up to the arena where the Bucks play.

anonymous 136 days ago

wait Matyr AD is casually playing da f*ck

anonymous 136 days ago

Imagine the smell of fresh fish at this place. It's gonna be great!

anonymous 136 days ago

fat people that eat cheese, smell like cheese, wear cheese hats, and sell cheese in airports are stoked

Bortslob 136 days ago

No wonder this thing went bankrupt 20 years ago

anonymous 136 days ago

I what world does it make sense to have Slaughter to Prevail outheadline In Flames?

anonymous 136 days ago

whoa where did martyr AD come from. a perfect murder and we would be set.

anonymous 136 days ago

I what world does it make sense to have Slaughter to Prevail outheadline In Flames? In the real world where In Flames draw a few hundred, max.

anonymous 135 days ago

shit in my flinkles

anonymous 135 days ago

Does Ken Susi still live with his parents!?

anonymous 135 days ago

anonymous 135 days ago

How does MAD play this shit, but won't play Chicago.

rick____tocchet 135 days ago

Saturday is decent. But no way enough for me to travel to this shit.

anonymous 135 days ago

^ Won't because?

anonymous 135 days ago

How does MAD play this shit, but won't play Chicago. Shane Merrill and/or whoever hasn't offered them a show?

united_ninety_three 135 days ago

Mr. Bunghole

anonymous 135 days ago

anonymous 135 days ago

Will go for eternal champion only

anonymous 135 days ago

"anonymous 2 hours ago How does MAD play this shit, but won't play Chicago. Shane Merrill and/or whoever hasn't offered them a show?" No idea. Talked to Mike Fisketti when his new band played Chicago with Too Pure To Die, Bleeding Through, and Dead To Fall, and he basically said it was hard to get everyone together.

^Disembodied played Burning Fight Fest in Chicago a week of their MPLS reunion show. So what's the hold up with Martyr AD.

anonymous 135 days ago

^ Most likely a radius clause which prevents them from playing an hour an a half south of Milwaukee six months before & after MF because in Jamey Jasta's warped brain a Martyr A.D. show in Chicago at say Cobra Lounge would cut into their draw at Milwaukee Metal Fest moreover he thinks Chicago fans want/are willing to pay a test price to see them play a 30-35 minute set when he's wrong.

anonymous 135 days ago

*fest price

anonymous 135 days ago

Jamie Jasta should give this fest a hearty one thumb down.

anonymous 135 days ago

"anonymous 15 hours ago ^ Most likely a radius clause which prevents them from playing an hour an a half south of Milwaukee six months before & after MF because in Jamey Jasta's warped brain a Martyr A.D. show in Chicago at say Cobra Lounge would cut into their draw at Milwaukee Metal Fest moreover he thinks Chicago fans want/are willing to pay a test price to see them play a 30-35 minute set when he's wrong." There ain't no way MAD is getting booked at Cobra. The place is too small and all those little kids running around there are bogus. 9/10 it would go to Reggie's or Bottom Lounge.

It's funny he thinks they're worth anything at all on this fest.

I what world does it make sense to have Slaughter to Prevail outheadline In Flames? In the real world where In Flames draw a few hundred, max. In the real word, In flames has 2.3 million people who listen to their music on spotify and have done 10 times the amount of touring slaughter to prevail has. In the real world, STP only has 900K people listening to their music and is an actual fraction of the band in flames is. In the real world, In flames can sell out arenas and stadiums. In the real world, STP's singer is an actual joke.
