Lineup is so stacked this year. Even better than last despite the arguably weaker headliners.

Still got my fingers cross for Fake Problems to be added, but that would just be like, the fancy serifs on the writing on the icing on the cake.

The first time I ever saw Negative Approach I met the girl of my dreams. It didn't work out at all, but let's hope for a successful sequel at this year's Fest. Such a strange setting for a thing.

Actually seeing them play live is cool too I GUESS.

Stoked for Captain, We're Sinking again. Still a bit annoyed with myself for leaving halfway through The Dopamines to get to 1982 AN HOUR AND A HALF EARLY for them last year though.

Lagwagon is one of the best bands...EVER. I am partial to Anti-flag since I live in Pittsburgh.

Last year had the Bouncing Souls and HWM. Also Against Me (though I skipped that to see BLR and Banquets). This year isn't terrible, but on headliners alone is clearly weaker in my book (just the rest of the lineup is better)

while I agree, honestly their fest set last year was probably the most disappointing one. I mean, it wasn't bad but the crowd wasn't that into it... just felt kinda meh (could also be they played all my least favorite songs of theirs =P). Still love their music and would go see them on tour, but probably won't catch them this year at fest unless I don't like any of the other bands in their time slot.
