BTW just to give anybody who hasn't bought tickets yet an opinion, this is coming from somebody who paid the $ for the 3 day passes and still has to situate a house/hotel situation, I definitely think it was worth it. There's a lot I want to see, I'd include: Armor For Sleep, Incubus, The Wonder Years, Motion City Soundtrack, Less Than Jake, Jimmy Eat World, Blink 182, Foo Fighters, Brand New, The Gaslight Anthem, Bon Jovi as the top priorities going by day.
Plus there are a lot of bands like Close Your Eyes, Hot Water Music, The Story So Far, Bouncing Souls etc who I may not even have the time to see. I definitely think for whatever day you plan on going it's worth it. I'm not even counting the whole "Mac Miller," "Skrillex," and "Pauly D" crowds this will bring too (not my style).
Reading those coments...What the fuck. It comes off that a lot of people buy tickets just to see who the special guest is. People are saying shit like they aren't going anymore because of this and that it completely ruined bamboozle. Can someone confirm if people actually go just for the special guest?
The reason people are complaining is that Linc's Special Guest usually doesn't get announced until they take the stage. There were never even any clues for them. It was a fun aspect of the festival not knowing who it would be.
Also they hyped up the special guest A LOT on Facebook and elsewhere and people expected it to be on the same terms as the headliners. People were even throwing around Green Day's name. They then hinted with a collage of AltPress covers which featured a bunch of "Big Names." Thats why people were mad.
first of all, i am pretty damn excited that gaslight was announced. 2nd, for all the people that arent happy, i actually read through all of those facebook comments and they mentioned that there is one band they aren't announcing till the "time is right".
