    I was under the impression it was a metal/punk/hardcore festival…
    Not the Big Day Out part 2. Maybe in 2014 thet can have a dance tent.

    ohh waaaah, if you dont like the line up then dont go?

    it’s nothing like the current shitty BDO lineup. theres plenty of decent bands on there, quit bitching.

    Spent all their money on Metallica, had to follow up with second rate 2 dollar washed up bands to co-headline.

    Metallica is worth it out of pity only, and Anthrax the only genuine interest. At least Scott Ian still has chops. They seriously couldn’t try and line up Testament on their Dark Roots tour maybe?

    Thanks for the tip Jordanbeard2, you must apply for somewhere like MENSA with all that grey matter at your disposal.

    OOH look, another applicant! “Everybody” does not complain “every year”; some complain every year. If everyone complained the event wouldn’t occur. When will the Buzz Lightyears around here comprehend that the people that complain about the lineup more than likely won’t go? Do you really think your “don’t go then” input is all that life changing? It’s heartwarming to see so many Captain Obvious’s in one place. I hope from the bottom of my heart that you spend the rest of your life content with everything that ever happens, because apparently the right to voice your displeasure with something has been outlawed by floppy haired f*cks in skinny jeans.

    @el creepo (12): Thats constructive. Thanks for the feedback. I will attempt to emulate your Vagina-like qualities so as to better please you.

    oh and @simmydee: the metal is clearly all before the lica and very little after. keen also for APC, tomahawk, stone sour, kyuss lives, flogging molly, ghost and periphery

  7. Ketil556

    @juggalo (18): Is this because I have a different viewpoint to you? Can you handle that there are going to be different opinions than yours? Think about this possibility for a bit.

    You come along and complain about people not liking a line up, and call me negative? Look in the mirror matey! Don’t be supprised when people bite back after being bitten. Pull head from arse, then comment.

    Okay, there’s still a second announcement to come before you start taking the line up not being tailored to your day as a personal insult. Like it or not, AJ brings a fuck load of bands out each and every year that many would not have the pleasure of seeing. Yeah, it’s a festival full of sweaty teens, toughing out the skinny jeans so they still look good but I’m sure you’ve all been to the festival before and seen a lot of bands you like, regardless of the shit venue, lack of this, too many scene kids..
    Check it out, give it a miss, go to BDO, who gives a fuck.

    line up is SHITHOUSE…. big suprise ! I would see 4 bands so will just end up going to the sidewaves and save the $190

    hope the 2nd announcement makes the $200 tickets worth it, this lineup sure as hell doesnt imo.

    dont see why people cant complain, everyone has their own opinions and it (should) help organisers know what bands people want to see, etc.

  11. TrainwreckSteve

    How’s Ketil capitalising his own unnecessary descriptors? Overstating doesn’t mean you’re intelligent, matey.

  12. chris_m_55

    8 bands I would pay to see, 3 I’d turn up early if they were to support someone I’d paid to see. Without clashes, that’s well worth the ticket price. Plus it’ll be easy to see the pop-punk bands I like since the core guys who complain every year will still buy a ticket so they can hang out at the metal stage and continue complaining all day 🙂 Also plus, with less metalheads, line for beer will be shorter

  13. Wiickedyeah

    I dont know why the fuck people are complaining… the headliner is Metallica thats huge!! if the bands next year arent up to your standand then you know what…. dont fucking go! pretty simple

  14. Nathan Explosion

    If there isn’t a band you like on that lineup you shouldn’t be on this site. So Fuck off!

    Can’t wait for the 2nd announcement. Woo! More METAL!!!

    Come on Dethklok!

  15. brendandemeris

    @Ketil556 (19): yeah he’s called you negative because your whole spiteful rant is literally dripping with bitter, negative sarcasm. but hey you can try and make it all about you not being able to express your opinion if you want
