This is basically the line up I expected. If this was in Vancouver, I am not sure if I would go or not. Its decent, not amazing. Sure as hell better then Vancouvers V-fest last year though.

I didnt end up going last year, nothing really stood out to me. But if matthew good played that actually might be enough for me to go. He's amazing live

WOW. This is fucking expensive! Last year, Vancouver only sold single day passes and presale was $29.50 and after that, it was $39.50. These tickets are $75.50 for a single day!!! I wouldn't pay $75.00 for either of these days. They do offer a weekend pass for $125, but in now way is this line up worth $125.

I know this is an old post, so sorry for reviving it! ha.

I'm going along to this with a few friends, looking forward to the second day the most.

I entered a competition to get VIP entry and global v-pass. If any one is in to writing about shows or blogging about gigs like i am, i'd suggest you check it out! - http://music.virgin.com/vpass/

Three Days Grace being at the fest means that I have no desire to go.

I'm pretty sure I've seen the dudes somewhere before and they weren't anything special.
