Too bad about Motorhead and Bad Brains. But Andrew WK is always a welcome addition.

@BehindtheCade Seen over 730 bands!
Didn't Attack Attack break up or is this the UK version?
Edit: Didn't read that correctly. They're NOT playing anymore.

The Pixies and Joan Jett seem like pretty huge additions so that makes up for Motorhead and Bad Brains.

Was hoping there would be a few warped bands in this announcement, but not too much in this one for me besides AWK. The first announcement was so stacked that it doesn't even matter.
