How is this even a consideration?

This tour hits all the same major markets, in mostly the same venues, that Mayhem always plays. And Slippy wouldn't do two massive amphitheater tours in the same...

They pretty much kept all the metal to one stage last year. They seem to put some sort of thought into which bands play which stages and grouping bands together that make sense.

There was one stage...

That's what i wondered about Tame Impala.

I guess it's just my personal taste, but the last few Riot Fest lineups make most of these "major" fests looks like a waste of time and money.

I'd add A Day to Remember to the list. They've headlined Riot Fests in other cities but never the Chicago one for some reason.

Faith No More and Refused definitely seem like candidates for the...

Can anyone who has been to this yet offer an estimate of set times?

I'm going next week but only really know IKTPQ coz old.

Also sounds like Marmozets are worth showing up early for, so maybe...

I could see them headlining Riot Fest at this point. So a 75 minute set isn't out of the question, but I agree with you for the most part.

Just because March 22 is a Saturday this year doesn't mean it was a Saturday last year.

Do a quick google search of "summer slaughter lineup announced" and you'll find a dozen metal news sites that...

I never thought Norma Jean would be on this anyway. They're playing the diviest of dive bars now and drawing maybe 50 people per night, plus their record label has little to no pull at these big...

Whitechapel would make a lot of sense as the SS co-headliner, especially if they got Morbid Angel as the headliner as has been speculated.

They'd need a younger band to move tickets, though I...

^^^ Isn't that kind of the point?

People under the age of 25 (and/or people who read Absolutepunk and similar sites) know about ADTR.

People of all ages know who Jack White is. My parents were...

"Hits" doesn't equal draw. But if you want to play that card, it should also be noted that "Steady as She Goes" and "Icky Thump" were also #1 Modern Rock radio hits, in addition to "Seven Nation...

I realize this is a "punk" site, but this is the most myopic thing I've ever read here.

In 2012, Jack White headlined several MAJOR festivals across the U.S. (Lollapalooza, Voodoo, etc.). Do you...

Pretty sure the big festivals like Lollapalooza pay close to $1,000,000 for their headliners. So I wonder how much money he made during that one summer after he released Blunderbuss and played a...

How could they be playing the same setlist for a decade if a lot of those songs aren't even three years old? Get over it. They could do what most bands do and play 90 minutes every night and still...

Well that, and Dave Grohl (and Pat Smear, for that matter) know far more about "punk" than FoB or Blink could ever dream of.

They wouldn't necessarily have to use the entire park if they moved it to Grant Park. The first Lollapalooza in Chicago only used half the park, and I believe there was four stages.

I guess it...

DH did a "legacy" sort of tour a few years back where they played a pretty long set every night, with songs from every album they've released. I remember Veil was direct support and I read that a...
