Did I mention it's also FREE? http://www.scion.com/rock/

Some other bands are rumored to be on the bill as well including EyeHateGod, Soilent Green, and Cephalic Carnage. Beastly.

AKA Scion-Relapse contamination festival.
Well as much as we would all like to think it sucks that it's in Atlanta, I'm in the bay area so I can't complain.

Dear Dudefest organizers,

Please get this lineup, or the equivalent. You've done pretty well the past two years; don't let me down now that I finally get to go.

Sincerely,
Me

So it's twelve hours for 24 bands. That seems to be a problem when I'd rather catch full sets from a handfull of those on the bill.

I bet there will be more than one stage.

I don't know how they're organizing the festival, but The Masquerade has two stages. One upstairs and a smaller one downstairs.

I read it's actually being held outside in the parking lot behind the venue, which would make sense cuz they're gonna need to fit at least a couple thousand people I imagine.

It's today + Nachtmystium had to pull out because people think they're Nazi's.

:confused:

Why do they in the first place? Is it because "Nachtmystium" sounds like there is "Nazi" in the somewhere?

Nevermind
Nachtmystium's first album, Reign of the Malicious, was released on Unholy Records, a National Socialist black metal label.[21] In 2006, Judd said that, “In the past, we’ve had some indirect ties to labels and bands that are part of the NS scene. At one point not too many years ago, it wasn’t uncommon for NS labels or bands to trade and work with non-politically motivated bands and labels because at the end of the day, we’re all trying to promote, release, and be involved with music—all politics aside. Today it seems like there’s less of a connection, at least for me and my label. We don’t oppose people’s right to be ‘NS’ or whatever—that’s a personal choice, and if you live in the USA, you have the right to that opinion. Even though I personally, my band(s) and my label have absolutely no interest in being a part of that scene, I will ALWAYS take their side when it comes to their freedom of speech being imposed upon.”
