Quantity does NOT equal quality.

I sat through a day of drivel just to see Tool. Never again.

At least when I saw Q.O.T.S.A and Living End it was well worth it. That was my favourite year.

How can you possibly know something that isn't announced???

They don't even start teasing people until about October anyway.

Nah they keep things like that under wraps. Any people involved in promotions will be sworn to secrecy, as would be any bands involved.

I'm doing the artwork for Southern Amp, and had to keep the lineup top-secret until the announcement.

We should have a wee friendly competition... see who can guess the most bands out of the final lineup >>>>>

Oh definately Sinate, they're my mates. Drank with them at the back of the Stadium all day.

And personally, I can't stand Trivium, I think they're awful in so many ways I don't know where to start.

Smashing Pumpkins would definately be a likely candidate.

Hey nix242 - you can work out the dates pretty easily. Gold Coast is always the Sunday before Australia Day - which is Sydney. Australia day is on a SAturday next year - so I'd bank on Melbourne being on either the 28th(Monday) or the 29th(Tuesday).
