    Will a festival like this please be born in America now please? Coachelle? MAYBE... but I want something more rock/metal focused. I can only day dream for a show with all these bands listed here. I'm not saying all are amazing, but it is pretty exciting.
    Hate Limp Bizkit all you want but live they are pretty great.
    I'll have to agree with you. I saw them at Sonisphere 2011 in Knebworth and enjoyed it, which led me to get into their music e.g. the Chocolate Starfish album, however I went off it after a while. The tough guy persona that Fred Durst has kinda gets old after a while.
    I'll have to disagree - seen them live a couple of times at festivals and I cannot stand them; put me off from listening to their music all together. It takes all-sorts though, the rest of the lineup looks superb this year.
    It's incredible and unbelievable festival!!! Wonderful list of members! Great heavy sound!
