    I went to Rock on the Range with my buddies last year and had a great time but I don't see myself returning next year. Too far away and with Open Air hopefully returning next year, I will just go to that.

    Oh. I thought maybe this thread would actually have some information on the festival line-up. Silly me.
  4. Behind the Barricade

    We can always start speculating on the lineup. I'm going with Avenged Sevenfold, Linkin Park and Korn as headliners.
  5. kidinthebushes


    I fully expect A7X to do all the hard rock festivals this summer.
  6. Behind the Barricade

    Here's a tough question: do they pander to the average fan and throw in the radio hits or is this a majority of Stage songs? I'd prefer the latter but I'm sure they'll do an arena run in the summer doing just that.
  7. kidinthebushes


    System of a Down will be overseas in June. ROTR is possible.

    ...In F*cking Full Effect Prestigious

  9. Behind the Barricade

    I think System would be better fit for Open Air (as next year's Rammstein act).
  10. bstadtfeld

    but does it djent?

    I'm betting A7X for sure. Korn has a high chance of doing it too. I'm really hoping to go this year.

    we are nothing more than mannequins Prestigious

    I don't really see Linkin Park there in 2017. They just headlined in 2015 and it seems a little too soon for a repeat headliner. Avenged Sevenfold headlined one of the days in 2014, but I guess a return to ROTR 3 years later isn't out of the question. I can see Korn playing in 2017 but at this stage I'd say that they're more of a direct support band.
  12. Behind the Barricade

    ROTR usually has 2 World's Loudest Month headliners and a one off headliner. Depending on when the album is coming out, LP could be the perfect one off headliner on Sunday. WLM also uses the same couple headliners so I can see Korn (especially with their latest album selling extremely well) doing Friday night's lineup and A7X on Saturday. Other headliner possibilities could be Volbeat, Tool, Temple of the Dog, Metallica or GnR. It's hard to tell since all the "bigger headliners" that just put out newer music played last year.
  13. TMS2787



    It's a lock. Book it. Run it.
  14. Behind the Barricade

    RotR would declare bankruptcy on May 22nd if this was the lineup.
  15. TMS2787


    Haha. Even before that. I hate Metallica but the other two would be great to me. I went for the first time last year on Sunday because the four bands I wanted to see played that day.
  16. Behind the Barricade

    If you do have a chance to see Metallica live, do it. They're a great live act and James sounds great live. I haven't made it out to RotR yet but I'd love to go. It sounds like the American version of Download.

    Should I just make one thread for all the Danny Wimmer festivals (Rock on the Range, Welcome to Rockville, Fort Rock, Northern Invasion, Carolina Rebellion, etc)?
  18. Behind the Barricade

    Yes and no. Most of them are the exact same lineup and no one would probably comment on them (except for a couple people) but things would get confusing if we lumped all those together. He has about 9 different festivals.
  19. kidinthebushes


    I went along and did it. None of the threads for the other four festivals I made had any posts.
  20. Behind the Barricade

    Fair enough. Plus, most of the people on this website aren't too into these hard rock festivals.
  21. kidinthebushes


    That too!
  22. kidinthebushes


    I'll keep this thread for the five festivals in May aka the World's Loudest Month ones.
  23. Behind the Barricade

    I know it's not Danny's but Rocklahoma should be included since it's apart of WLM.

    I have gone to RoTR the last couple years. Last year the lineup wasn't as good as 2015 and I liked the lineup at Chicago Open Air much more than RoTR. It's still a great time regardless.

    Based on album releases and when they last played RoTR, I would guess the following bands would be in the mix for non-headlining slots:

    In Flames
    Of Mice & Men
    Dillinger Escape Plan
    Papa Roach
    The Devil Wears Prada
    Upon a Burning Body

    My tastes tend more to metal instead of hard rock so I am sure there are tons of more mainstream radio-friendly acts that will be on the bill.

    As for headliners, there is a good crop of potential bands:

    Rammstein (played Chicago Open Air so maybe gettable for the biggest US festival)
    System of a Down

    For a WTF headliner, I have seen Green Day mentioned and I think Aerosmith is playing some European festivals so don't be surprised if they pop up. Nine Inch Nails is rumored to be making new music so they could show up as well.

    I think hard rock/metal music is in a bad place. All the most popular bands are 20-30 years old. Besides ADTR and BMTH I can't think of another "newer" band that has potential to really stick around for a long time. I guess you can consider A7X a bit newer when compared to bands like KORN and Metallica.
