    No official confirmation yet. Just seems pretty likely that it's NIN. I will temper my expectations though because I've been disappointed before. However, if it's anyone other than NIN, please be System of a Down.

    I guess if @TheBang made a post in here it's gotta be coming from a good source.

    Nothing special beyond what you guys have posted here, which was pretty convincing.

    Only newer band worse a shit on that lineup is The Sword, and their new material sucks since they decided they don't want to be metal anymore.

    Some decent older bands on there though like Bush, Clutch & Chevelle (YMMV of course) and Primus, Suicidal & Joan Jett are top caliber acts alongside NIN. Fun day for those going as long as it isn't brutally hot (it will be).

    VIP with AC and complementary bottled water for $215 might be worth it. Again, literally in a parking lot. Fresh blacktop too

    Edit: Stumbled upon this from a public safety radio enthusiast board.

    completely fine with the rain if that means a smaller crowd. hoping for at least a few deep cuts instead of the standard festival set.

    Now the drunk meatheads will just be wet drunk meatheads. I've set up a playlist of the under card bands and thinking(in start time order) Blacktop Mojo, From Ashes to New, The Sword, and Fever 333 are my early day favorites. I've pretty much eliminated Upon a Burning Body from contention. Not much into Screamo.

    Most certainly will get back to the festival hits set list, but hoping the raw/loud stuff makes its way in. HiS would be perfect for this crowd.

    yeah i'm not super excited about the lineup. i would definitely see the sword but i'm not getting out there at 2:30 and staying all day. really wish there was re-entry into the festival.

    That's what I'm afraid of. I wasn't even gonna go as I was able to score tickets to both Dallas shows in late November. But my friend who was going to purchase my RCR band had to back out so now I feel obligated to drive up there and maybe pick up a few songs I missed due to the DFN storm. I'm just really skeptical about going up there only to get thrown out once the thunder starts rumbling like DFN. I really want to hear Burning Bright, Great Destroyer and possibly Somewhat Damaged though. I know they'll play SD if I don't go. Lol

    i think we're going to head out from Austin and try and get there about 5-6:00 (don't care for or know any of the early day bands) plus factoring in the rain situation. IF the rain is bad then we'll plan on getting there about 6-7:00ish. My only concern is how late will call will be open.

    anyhoo...i'm sure it'll be a good show. Patrick...are you going?

    We're trying to get there around 3:30. We want to see All That Remains, and that's about it outside of NIN.

    ATR has sucked for over a decade now & Phil is a gigantic piece of shit, but holy shit the new song actually rips somehow.

    Eh, I can understand where Phil comes from. I get libertarians a lot more than i understand full blown conservatives... anyways. They haven't made a fully great album since For We Are Many, but to me at least, they've done a few good ones here and there. The new song is soo good though. I've gotten screwed the last two times seeing them. First time, they were headlining South By So What and the promoters cut their set in half. They skipped my all time favorite track of theirs. Their guitarist gave me their original setlist that day since I was on the rail going nuts. The second time, they were headlining a tour (I called the venue, and were told they were playing last) and ended up being the opener. So we walked in half way through their set. I'm probably just as hyped for ATR as I am NIN tbh.

    Despite the forcast, looks like I'll be joining you all. I hope everyone goes to Stone Temple after Primus so we fans can get up front! I managed second row at Riot Fest, I'm determined to be on the rail this time.

    I don't want to derail this thread, but Phil's worst inclinations stretch far deeper than libertarianism. He's an extreme gun nut with no empathy for whats going on in this country, and is a bigoted homophobe as well. The guy can go fuck himself.
