    PBC and Mixtapes could happen for sure

    I don’t think the other will but I’d shit if The Swellers did

    My two big hopes are Menzingers and LTJ and both seem likely

    Jeff Rosenstock
    Antarctigo Vespucci
    Touché Amore
    Broadway Calls
    The Sidekicks
    Bouncing Souls
    The Lawrence Arms
    Dead To Me
    Strike Anywhere
    The Loved Ones

    Before last year you could bet your house on The Menzingers playing...Then they ruined it last year. But yeah they would be a must see for me!

    The Swellers last show still annoys me! It was a Punk Festival in Belgium (Groezrock) don't get me wrong a great festival and I managed to catch part of the set! But I always felt that they would end at Fest because they played it quite often from what I recall. If not Fest then a hometown show.

    LTJ I have heard playing Hello Rockview is a good possibility. Outside of LTJ it shall be be interesting to see the other headliners this year. The Menzingers could maybe one?

    I think The Menzingers are definitely credible enough to headline for sure

    LTJ playing Rockview would be so awesome

    And yeah agreed about Swellers I went to their last Cleveland show and was planning on Detroit but skipped because I figured they'd definitely do a Flint show for their actual last one and I'm still so bummed they didn't

    also hoping Camp Cope makes it out this year.

    Bringin the ruckus

    My biggest hope is for Alkaline Trio but honestly I'd settle for someone doing a cover set at this point. Other hope is for Camp Cope and The Sidekicks.

    I said last year would be my final Fest but then a week after it ended I booked my hotel for this year "just in case".

    And that's hopes of Alkaline Trio dashed early on at least. With Blink doing the Las Vegas residency unless they headlined on the Sunday at Fest.

    I would actually love to go to 1 of them Blink shows in Vegas so might look into factoring it in to my travel plans.

    This is literally the only "concert" I go to every year and I had to miss last year, which sucked. With Daggermouth releasing a new song, I am hoping they play again this year. Hoping to get my fix of A Wilhelm Scream as well, since they play every year and never come close to my town. Regardless of the lineup, I am pumped.
  10. br10pb


    Last year was probably the most fun I had ever had at fest. My saturday schedule was amazing. Can't wait for this year.

    My hope is for a hostage calm reunion. I think they were supposed to play the year they broke up .
  11. dX927


    Less Than Jake are not playing this year
  12. abear182


    Honestly quite surprised with that just given that it would be a prefect time to play Hello Rockview in full.

    You have any other insight?

    Also only 2 more weeks until the announcement!
  15. dX927


    Basically Tony waited too long to ask them and they already have other things planned. Similar reason why they're only playing a few days of Warped instead of the whole thing.
  16. abear182


    That sorta worries me hopefully they aren't struggling to get good headliners this year.

    Gotta admit I'm super bummed about no LTJ

    At least Menz still seem likely

    Fest isn't about the headliners!

    Don't recreate the scene, or reinvent the meanings Supporter

    Yeah, I really didn't watch a ton of sets at the main stage last year. I definitely did, but I was at High Dive (I think) by the pizza place a lot.

    The indoor shows were definitely a better vibe than the outdoor shows. Against Me being really the only exception and maybe Iron Chic

    Crowd was completely dead for almost every band I wanted to see outside though.

    High Dive forever

    Also only one week until the announcement!!!!

    the lineup is of course cool but piebald being on this...

    this post got so little traction, that needs to change
  23. JaytotheGee

    Damn that's a bummer about Piebald didn't know that...

    Also lineup is definitely cool but very bare minimum. Nothing really big to me here. Assuming the next announce will have a ton of awesome stuff though.

    Right now I'm excited for:

    Broadway Calls
    The Copyrights
    Dead To Me
    Direct Hit
    Iron Chic
    Prince Daddy & The Hyena
    Red City Radio
    Rozwell Kid
    Signals Midwest
    Spanish Love Songs

    And I would watch:
    Bad Cop Bad Cop
    Gouge Away
    Katie Ellen
    Mom Jeans
    Riverboat Gamblers
    Tim Barry
    War on Women

    Really hoping Menzingers play
  24. terps12


    Not really a Lagwagon, Cursive, or Piebald fan. Hoping for some combination of the Bouncing Souls, Lawrence Arms, Menzingers, Teenage Bottlerocket, D4 on the "headliner" side.

    Stoked to see Bike Tuff and Spanish Love Songs though.

    Whatever. Forever.
