Yeah fucking amazing lineup. Lots of shitty bands in there with some awesome ones. I'm keen to see a fair few bands so I am definitely going. Mastodon, System, Lamb of God, Devin Townsend, Meshuggah, Machine Head, Lostprophets, Alter Bridge Goijira and Chimara would all be worth seeing. That's enough for me. Oh and I'd probably go see Limp Bitzkit just to lol at Fred Durst if they don't conflict with any GOOD act!

Shits all over BDO anyway.

Also, AJ is already semi-confirming who he has lined up for the 2nd announcement. So far:

- Danzig (spot on bill query)
- Further Seems Forever (Carraba double book?)
- Falling In Reverse (Radke Visa issues).

AND something the news item does not state is that Saves The Day are performing 2 sets:

(1) Their own set
(2) Playing Weezer's 'Pinkerton' in full.

While I have no real interest in going to this I am very impressed that so many big name bands have been organised to tour little Aussieland at the same time.
This lineup also makes the current BDO lineup look like balls which strangely pleases me.

I think what many people are forgetting (or not realizing... or being ignorant to) is that this is a 1 day festival. It doesn't matter how many horrible bands (of the almost 80 in total) are on the bill... All that matters is that there at least 10-15 that you do want to see.

They do hold back those 5000 tickets. I think he said capacity is 35000, so somewhere between 24000 and 28000 depending if you take those 5000 into account.

Definitely huge for SW. Supposedly Brisbane has sold a similar amount of tickets, but I know our venue holds closer to 50000. I think the craziest thing this week though is Melbourne/Gold Coast BDO tickets not selling out.
