    Lol. I will def be trying to convince the wife we need to go! Cant get much better headliners for this type of festival than that! The wife really wants to go to Rock Im Park, but Die Toten Hosen is already announced as a headliner,and this already trumps that announcement.

    Hopefully it doesnt sell out any time soon.



    After seeing this fake lineup poster, my expectations for the 3rd headliner were complete shit, such as Nickelback....so getting The Prodigy is HUGE! and with Liam Howlett announcing they will be playing new material there, hometown crowd.... should be apeshit.
    Upcoming Shows:
    U2: 6/28 @ United Center

    Were N-Back booked after Van Halen bailed?

    Good to see Killing Joke booking shows after they cancelled a 2011 North American tour with only give vague mention of band member health.

    Curious to see how many Euro festivals Soundgarden play in 2012, if any. it's been 2 years since they got back together, and they haven't done Europe since 1994/5(?).

    The first time Soundgarden won't headline on their reunion tour. First Euro show since 1996?

    Hopefully they will do some U.S. dates.

    I saw them in 1992 before that song broke at a place called Club With No Name.

    Yep. Sabbath confirmed their still playing. Now if only Yauch can get Iommi's big secret.

    Why do European festivals announce their lineups 10 bands at a time?

    Its not normal to do that, Roskilde and Rock Werchter usually keeps it at 2-4 names at a time but i can see that they released 16!!! names a few days ago.
