Thread: BottleRock 2016

  1. #1

    Default BottleRock 2016

    Any predictions? Hopefully the lineup will improve from the last couple of years...

    Pre-Sale is December 15th

    Last years (or I guess this years I should say) line-up dropped on January 5th.

    The 2016 festival falls on Memorial Day weekend (May 27th to May 29th)

    I have a sneaking suspicion that the Chili Peppers will be on this years lineup. They seem to fall in line with the type of acts they have been booking in the past and they have Memorial Day weekend open after a stop in Ohio the weekend prior.

    After last year's major letdown with the lineup reveal, I'm not getting my hopes up at all. I would like to go back for a third time, and would love to be really surprised on Tuesday but I'm not holding my breath.

    Based on who is available and the type of acts they have historically booked, I'm also keeping my expectations within reason. That said, I can't make Outsidelands due to a scheduling conflict so Bottlerock and Treasure Island are the only games in town for me :/.

    Edit: Added a word.

    I don't really know who's available, but I doubt RHCP, given they are playing Germany only a few days later. I suppose Foo Fighters or Green Day (who were rumored last year) could be possibilities (I think Dave has even said he wants to play Bottlerock). Maybe Tom Petty as the old timer/country/classic act? If it's anything like last year though, I'll be skipping it again. If it's like year two, I'll be there for sure.

    You are right about the Dave thing, he said that in 2013. That said, Foo's are done touring for now aren't they?

    Green Day I could see, though I hope it's not them as I am not a fan.

    Tom Petty is fairly hard to gauge and predict, he seems to just do sporadic clusters of shows these last few years rather than full tours, currently has nothing lined up, wouldn't mind him showing up.

    I stand by my Chili Peppers theory though, they just seem like the right fit for that fest, plus the local radio stations have been dropping subtle hints that I might be reading to much into.

    I know it's probably not a popular opinion but I'd be alright with that as I have yet to see them. Are they bad live?

    Good to know!

    What do you guys think the odds are that Dead & Company will be a headliner?

    Apparently the lineup will be out at 8AM PST tomorrow.

    The Killers are great. I was blown away by them the first time I saw them, second time was just as good. Don't know if it was just that tour, but they did 2-3 covers of bands that came from that city they were in.

    Lineup was leaked via newspaper clipping then quickly deleted.

    Stevie Wonder, Chili Peppers, and Florence & the machine as headliners

    Death Cab, Rodrigo Y Gabriella, Walk the moon, x ambasadors, Michael Franti & Spearhead are all I can remember from the rest (underwhelming, why are they so obsessed with Franti?)

    It could be worse. Maybe I go to see Stevie and finally check this thing out for a day. The Pharcyde is actually a decent get.

    I think it's safe to say that regardless of how we feel this will sell out pretty quickly, though they probably could have booked Imagine Dragons again and it still would do that. Just the way festivals go these days it seems.

    Headliners might be the best set they've had.

    Last year was way better than that glorified county fair lineup they had the second year.

    There are a few acts that interest me but probably not enough for the price.

    Definitely BottleRock's best lineup to date. It's always a bit pricy, but I'll consider it this year, especially whatever days don't have RHCP.

    We won tickets in their scavenger hunt last year and enjoyed this festival. Planning on going again for sure. Florence and the Machine and Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness are two artists I have been wanting to see. Stevie Wonder I have seen twice and he is great live. Walk the Moon is a fun band. There are quite a few others artists I have not seen but would like to check out. Friday was the best day last year for me due to less crowds.

    Not bad, but could be better...If I lived in NorCal I'd be more inclined to check this out.

    i wouldn't doubt it. although there past lineups have been absolutely fucking terrible so this year tickets might not drop as low.
