Lol what the fuck

http://www.kanrocksas.com/

August 5 - 6

Literally no info given (no date, no specific venue) but from what I've heard it will be BIG. As in, bigger than our two biggest venues (Sandstone Amphitheater and Kemper Arena) and might be in some place like a field. Also, the big headliners are supposed to be real big. I won't keep my hopes up for metal, but I'm thinking maybe Rolling Stones? Maybe Paul McCartney? Van Halen?

edit: also - terrible name

Or just for you - Whitechapel.

Probably will end up being like Wakarusa. There was a twitter feed on the site talking about Arcade Fire or whatever the hell they are called so I figured it will be 2 days of hipster crap. They couldn't just keep that crap in Arkansas. They feel the need to move it North... Dammit. Got my hopes all up.

You didn't hear this from me, but I've been told it will more than likely be "rock". I dunno what that entails, but I've also been told someone that has my taste in music would enjoy it.

"Your" taste huh? LOL I'm playing. Fair enough. I will do what I can to keep an open mind and hope for the best. Skeptical...but hopeful.

Eminem was fun live. I saw him with Kiss last September :lol: He played a LOT of songs, most of them weren't full songs, but it was still cool. I like the entire lineup, I would go if it was near me.

Kiss and Eminem co headlined the first day of the epicenter festival that took place in Fontana, CA last september, I thought it was random as fuck they played back to back hahaha

That's actually a pretty decent lineup outside of Jack's Mannequin, Even though Eminem's new material sucks, I would stil see hin. Muse is near the top of my to see list.
