Obviously those bands will sell more tickets, but that's not exactly what happened. The organizers have booked -core festivals from the start. Summer Slam, December Decimation, So Cal Deathfest, and Spring Breakdown were all done by them. The problem is that they've turned California Metalfest into a parody of itself. I see no reason why they couldn't have just started a new festival for that while keeping California Metalfest a predominantly metal festival, like they were doing up until 2011.
