    Christ. TO go or not to go! Lots of travel to and from Milwaukee to Chicago to Milwaukee to Ohio back to Milwaukee. Hm


    EDIT: So RTJ are playing Summerfest on the 17th (the Friday) so they're more likely to be playing Riot on Sat/Sun. Really hope SP is that Friday and NIN on Sunday.

    Is there a chance for more passes to be on sale later? Looks like only VIP DELUXE is available at the moment. If not, that's okay...can do a single day at least for NIN.

    Hope the stage isn't so HIIIIGGGHHH...urgh.

    I went in 2017 and if I had the means right now I would go again, this is a great festival.

    Opt for the VIP if it includes a drink pass.

    For some reason I feel like I remember seeing they were confirmed for Friday night. Is this true, or is this part of my thesis-writing-sleep-deprived hallucinations? Think we are going to go to RF and then head to Cleveland. Just trying to work out logistics.

    no confirmation I don’t think, but that’s the speculation (Reditt???). They’re also the “first” band on the poster if you’re reading it like a book, so that usually means the headliner for the first night.

    So what bands do we think could be added to the lineup this week (I'm guessing they'll announce the FULL day-specific lineup and single-day tickets tomorrow)? I'm sure it'll be mostly smaller bands being added at this point, but Rob Zombie and The Offspring are on tour and have openings, so maybe one of them will be added? Rob Zombie, Chevelle, and Avatar (who is playing at Louder Than Life) will be in the area, as they're all playing a really small music festival in Clarkston, MI called Riff Fest on Saturday, the 18th (but maybe that's close enough that they can only do one?). Judas Priest will also be in the area (playing in Ohio on Sept. 17 & in Milwaukee on Sept. 22, as well as playing Louder Than Life). Mastodon, Rise Against, Mudvayne, Disturbed, 3Teeth, and Stone Temple Pilots all appear to have openings around Riot Fest and are playing one of the other festivals, as well (I'd only be interested in Mastodon and 3Teeth out of those bands, personally). Red Fang seems like another possibility, as do Fitz and the Tantrums (who will be at Summerfest on the 16th), The Struts (who play Summerfest on the 17th), Everclear (Summerfest on Sept. 9), and even Filter (Summerfest on Sept. 11).

    Was really crossing my fingers for FNM and NIN on the same day but Sunday it is. Saturday’s line up is real good, though but I think driving to and from Chicago two days in a row would be hard plus my dumb neuropathy body.

    So happy that the NIN website was wrong and they are on Sunday! Having 3 empty days before Cleveland was gonna be annoying.

    FACS are great, fyi. Saw them open for Explosions in the Sky a few years ago.

    Does anyone know how fast the single-day tickets sell out? I'm trying to convince a friend to go with us on Sunday.

    Pretty quickly, I think. I wouldn't hesitate for long

    Got my ticket, though the rest of the lineup for that day doesn't interest me tons and the price made me flinch a bit. Oh well. NIN!!!!!

    Ticket secured! After an internal debate I splurged and bought Deluxe VIP for Sunday. I thought about how many times I’ve flown to see NIN and this was cheaper than those trips.
