Might just go for Anthrax, Meshuggah, Dillinger (I have to assume this will be part of their final tour, they're playing a lot of fests), Body Count, and Pig Destroyer.

I doubt anybody in Code Orange has heard Kiss. Their godhead bands are Poison The Well and Fear Factory.

Karebear here. If anyone so much as touches me at this hardcore fest, me and two other people will beat them to death with our meaty caveman fists.

Dillinger (I have to assume this will be part of their final tour, they're playing a lot of fests),

They said they're touring for most of 2017.

- Rad, I'd prefer seeing them in clubs as a headliner with a bigger time slot. But I also haven't seen them in a fest setting since 2004, could be fun.

LOL at Stone Sour headlining over LOG but Sunday looks pretty damn good overall

Hot Damn! Take a gander at all of those irrelevant cover bands! WooHoo! Get my Coors Light, Toby Keith!

I would honestly pay more money to go to Wacken over this.

Dragonforce still riding that guitar hero fame

Dillinger on the same bill as Falling In Reverse.

Yeah, break up already

One can only hope for another drunken white trash death fall like last year.

Can't wait for Jami Morgan from Code Orange's autistic rant about having to share the stage with deathcore bands and Falling In Reverse
