Anyone else notice how retarded the new posters are? They think that the only other festival we could possibly want to go to is bdo because, you know, the only choice for any festival in Australia is either bdo or soundwave! Also, why do they think bdo is a hipster festival? I know I'm excited to see such underground acts As Soundgarden and Kanye.

Either way, will attend pretty much all festivals this summer (except probably Future because of the people...) so doesn't bother me.

Well talking from an Adelaide perspective SW crowds are better behaved and there are far less incidents than compared to the BDO.

golden plains may only have two artists so far, but its looking more appealing than soundwave and big day out combined at the moment

no wonder the lineups are sometimes crap, so many fags that probably aren't even thinking of going at all, are bagging such a good lineup. consider yourselves lucky, im flying in from nz to see this awesome lineup. slipdog ftw

Lizbot

Oh I dunno, any of the 100 metal/heavy acts I enjoy. Do I really have to list them? I don't know why I'm even bothering with this, it's pretty obvious the posters praising this line up are probably pissed on Moonshine.

An awesome line-up. So long as there are now shitty clashes, major pullouts and I get to throw something at Kurt-killer then I'm pumped.

Slip_dog

Slip_dog said on the 8th Oct, 2011

i live in my own house, 120km's out of adelaide and will attend both festivals, due mostly to a responsible and organised lifestyle.

i cant see myself having a big old sook about ' how fucking hard' its going to be either, am mostly going to enjoy both day’s.

i dont understand why you think that someone with no life can spend money, unless you are implying that i have no life as a result of hard-work earning large amounts of money to afford festivals, in which case you are, obviously, correct.

dont be ashamed, these are the kinds of dumbass assumption that i would expect from someone who overuses the term 'hipster' in a country town.

proven your a hipster dick!

slipdog playing songs from his seminal grunge album neverfrombehind, including the hits: smells like metholated spirits, inbreed, something in the gay, and come as you are unless your black or some kind of foreign in which case i think it's best you leave.

i said for many reasons. they also have psychedelics there too!
but drugs aside, i love the place. theres just so much to do, the place feels alive, love the bike culture and the whole look and feel of the city is incredibly unique. the people too, oh how i love the Dutch people.
and yes, the paradiso was fucking brilliant again this time round. the specials were even better this time than they were at Splendour. the average age of the crowd was about 35 - 50. Adam and I were the youngest people I saw there and I've never been to a gig with a better crowd.

in summary, I fucking love Holland!

I hope danzig makes it. SOAD is the main drawcard for me but keen to see Mastodon, Cro-Mags, Machine Head, Devin Townsend. Hole and Limp will be fun to see too.

By being one of the forum's top posters and one of its top trolls, either Slip_dog or the forum itself is slowly reaching a state of complete singularity, where the trolls are merely trolling themselves in an endless cycle to survive.

Wait is Circa Survive on the lineup? If so, LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

There is nothing in the lineup for us elitists at all. It may as well be creamfields.

LMFAO is really just Limp Bizkit without the house band.

I don't think Limp Bizkit have a robot though. That's a pretty important part of LMFAO shows (i'm going to assume)

I'll most likely have to attend, not by choice. I get to laugh at simpletons like yourself though, so that should be entertaining.

You are certainly a hipster, especially if your going to 5 summer festivals, Why don't you tell us what they are?

I feel sorry for your kids. They have a mother who would rather spend money on concerts then on them. Your statement makes you sound like a completely shit and ineligible parent.
