i went to the last one (yeah shame on me) + it was a truly awful experience.

but what does everyone think of this year's line up?

i think it could be the best gig ever, with a mix of bands from different days. pour example.

brand new
jimmy eat world
thursday
afi
mewithoutYou
hellogoodbye
alexis
saosin
motion city soundtrack

Oh....is that really the line-up? I'm getting all hot and bothered. I would go just to see Brand New....but then I get Thursday, Jimmy Eat World, mewithoutYou, Alexisonfire and the rest of those guys.

I would go, but the rest of the line-up is awful.

+I get to see Brand New and mewithoutYou anyways.

I do want to see Saosin and Thursday, but they're on seperate days, and it's not really worth shelling out £80 for two bands.
there is no fear in this heart.

Seriously though, the line-up blows, I can't imagine the crowd being great.

I really want to see Thursday though.

From that list it looks a bit 50/50 (in my opinion), but I can see a lot of people on this board enjoying much more of those bands.
What are the ones you've not pointed out?
HIM & Enter Shikari are both pretty poo.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

That's not a terrible line up overall.
Most are bearable.
Didn't realise MXPX were still going...

i'd like to see who the TBC's are going to be.

last year they waited a while to confirm thrice + we are scientists which was great, so maybe they have a couple more big names up their sleeve.

but wth is juliette + the licks doing on the bill...?

I went last year but this year sucks. Not one of the days stands out as the best. Jimmy Eat World are ok and MXPX and Senses Fail are both pretty good but i don't want to go for an entire day to see a few bands have 30 min slots...
My Gear:
Epiphone SG
Vintage SG
Stagg Strat (With replaced hardware and a Duncan Invader )
Hohner Strat
No name Acoustic
Jim Dunlop Crybaby
Boss MT-2

the lineup has some great names in there but im not even considering going, its just too far away to go for one day of half good/half good music.

_____________________________________________

It's safe to say that Friday is absolute dogshit, but Saturday looks awesome: Brand New, Mae, Saosin, MCR and Enter Shikari (I like them, I don't care what you gaylords think )

Sunday looks like it might be alright too, although I'd only want to see JEW and mewithoutYOU. I'd probably stick around for HTL and The Audition as well, but I wouldn't go just for them.

Overall, I think the lineup's a hell of a lot better than last year. To be honest, I'm happy so long as AVA aren't playing: I actually fell asleep during their set, that's how crap it was.

Yeah, if I wanted a psuedo mass-councelling session then I'd turn up to my AA meetings, not watch AVA. I don't watch a band and expect to be told how "wonderful" I am, or how I should "believe in myself" etc. Buggar that. I'm there to listen to some good music, have a few beers and chill out. Not analyse my life. If Tom wants to preach, he should quit the music business and start a cult, like a normal weirdo.
