    Also, my guess is: Tool or Metallica / System Of A Down / Disturbed / (insert some big hard rock act I hate but the kids like here) / The Prodigy / Deftones / Ghost

    Disturbed are playing the Allstate Arena in march so i think this means they won't be there.

    Do you know if there's going to be overlap in terms of acts? I made this assumption before, but I'd imagine with both festivals being run by Wimmer there's going to be some overlap (a la Riot Fest Chicago/Denver/Toronto a few years back). I'd imagine they book some acts for multiple fests at once.

    No, Disturbed, please and thank you.

    There's usually a ton of overlap with Wimmer fests, but last year they made an effort to have the headliners be different.

    Wish this festival was actually in Chicago and not in Bridgeview.

    Agreed, but what I understand from friends who’ve gone to OA, there is a transportation ticket package you can buy that will take you to and from the city. I plan to do that. At the very least, the bar Reggie’s in the South Loop will probably have their bus in action.

    I would be shocked if the lineups aren't at least 50% the same. Also, if Disturbed is out, maybe Open Air finally books Avenged Sevenfold? I hate them but it's not as if they aren't perfect for an Open Air lineup. I guess the main question is: will Chicago Open Air Presents: A Day In the Park be re-branded as more rock similar to Sonic Temple (Rock On The Range) and Epicenter (Carolina Rebellion).

    Better Bridgeview than Tinley Park, y'all.

    I changed it a few days ago from Chinpokomon because it kind of creeped me out

    Tool * System Of A Down * Avenged Sevenfold
    The Prodigy * Deftones * Ghost * Shinedown * Chevelle
    Bring Me The Horizon * Halesorm * Lamb Of God
    The Cult * Meshuggah * Evanescence * Papa Roach
    Gojira * Killswitch Engage * Skillet * In This Moment
    Tom Morello * Black Label Society * Circa Survive
    Fever 333 * Beartooth * Parkway Drive * Avatar
    Tremonti * Zeal & Ardor * The Black Dahlia Murder

    Of course they announce the dates the same day I started making some plans with some out of town friends to finally go to Three Floyd's Dark Lord Day, which is that weekend. FUUUUUUUUUUUU

    It looks like it's still going to be called Chicago Open Air too. Unless they just haven't announced the name change yet.

    Announcement in less than 24 hours.

    After today's tour announcment it's safe to say that Breaking Benjamin, Skillet and Underoath will probably be there. I am guessing that Shinedown, Papa Roach and Asking Alexandria will make an appearance, judging by their upcoming tour.

    At this point I'll be pretty surprised if the headliners/subs core isn't Tool/System/Ghost/Prodigy.

    My tops would be Tool/SOAD/Slipknot. Gimme as many of those as you can.

    All I know is either System plays at Open Air or I'm going to Sonic Temple lol

    Lineup announcement in 34 minutes!

    Really hoping to see: TOOL, SOAD, Slipknot, Ghost, Killswitch Engage, Circa Survive.

    It's chaos. Be kind. Prestigious

    Patton Oswalt's in Detroit the same weekend so I can't go anymore, but I'd totally go Saturday if I could.
