At least the east gets a few solid bands but why in the fck would anyone ever fly out some of the worst bands from the west coast?

I've also never heard of Poison Idea or Negative Approach. That previous poster has a really good point. Who are these no name bands? How did they get on this show? I don't get it.

Riffless Fest pt.2, Where the fck is DOWN? I think there's a couple of riffs there but, instead no, line up 15+ suck bands and call it a festival

If you have never heard of negative approach or poison idea, you're probably 14.

i really hope the sound and fury/this is hardcore mentions were a joke. i hate that they put random gaygy hardcore bands on otherwise good fests like these.

Coffinworm is an awesome band, good for these dudes
