    i like how they add "performing hybrid theory" under linkin park's name. they know no one wants to hear their new shit live
    So first time playing for Fall Out Boy and they play right before the headliner, at a festival where they're generally not wanted? Makes no sense
    Right, off to Sonisphere, or maybe I can save my pennies and go to Sweden Rock instead.
    I dunno, this one just doesn't feel right. I like a handful of those bands but there are some strange choices in there. It's all personal though. I wont be going this year but hope it picks up next time round.
    For a second I thought the band after Anti-Mortem was "Arcane Boots". Too much DotA...
    Nice to see that Avatar is getting somewhere, thought their album was pretty good. This year is tempting in some respects, there's a few more heavier bands (suicide silence, battlecross, thy art is murder, etc.), but it's still not on par with last year. 2013 was a great line-up.
    This lineup looks f***in random. Opeth are too talented to be tossed into such an obscure grouping. imo.
    Real terrible line-up for me - Bloodstock and Hellfest this year!
