Strong line-up on this one. Per usual, loads of metal I don't care about but it all balances out with Weezer, Alice in Chains, the Gaslight Anthem, Brand New, Me First & the Gimme Gimmes, Lagwagon, Strung Out, Face to Face, Fishbone, Rev. Horton Heat, Rocket from the Crypt, Streetlight Manifesto, Billy Talent, Primus, Cypress Hill, Alkaline Trio, the Vandals, and so on and so forth.

Strong mix of acts.

Yeah I think it's pretty tough to not call this lineup better than Riot Fest Toronto, depending how geared you are towards the indie rock side of things

Stay far away from this festival. They have no idea what they are doing organizationally, no idea how to handle the thousands of people and their human waste, and no idea how to handle local bands who they signed up using scummy "pay to play" measures. It's a joke.

Tickets are only $100 and based on this lineup, I'll take my chances with some organizational issues

I mean, have you actually ever stood in like 4 inches inches of human shit before? It's not rad. Bravo to them for putting on a festival that can attract these bands, but if you don't know what you're doing, you don't know what you're doing.

That's mostly my fault. But I'm glad some people care, that's definitely more motivation to get off my ass. It's honestly a bummer to post about Canadian stuff and have no one respond. I did make sure the X-Fest and Sonic Boom posts went up the same day and no one responded, haha, just as one example.

A dude from Montreal who has expects a certain level of professionalism when it comes to festivals. These guys have no idea what they are doing. At all. Trust me, I'd love to see these bands, it's just a shame that they opted to tie their names to this clunker of a fest.

Here is a rundown of resources:

since this is less than an hour away from my house and the lineup is insane I'll probably go. I do hope it's better organized than last year though.

They've acknowledge their 2013 disaster and have signed on with Canada's top Festival Organizers.
