IF i lived within an hour and you could exclude people going there specifically to see Metallica, I'd probably go.

No DIIV on the lineup?

Deftones are still the most underrated band out there.

Remove the first 3 on the list and I would consider going to that.

Can't stop laughing at the pic. James in particular.

Except for Death (assuming they emant the punk band), this line-up is pretty ass.

Definitely a really fine line-up. Great
