Why is Skrillex "Headlining" Over Blink 182?

Posted by - 09:39 AM on 01/18/12
This was pretty much lost in the chaos of last night ... but you can check out a video of John D (Bamboozle creator) explaining why Skrillex is technically headlining over Blink 182, in the replies. However, according to the poster found here, they're playing different days - the set times are probably like 15 minutes different, so who cares. I know, I know, you're going to care.

Tl;dr version:

Blink hasn't played bamboozle. Skrillex earned it from being in FFTL and playing Bamboozle left.

I get that. But there's no way he could tour every state in the country in 15K arenas and sell 97% of them out. It's just dumb
