Firefest 2014 - The Final Fling

Even though I'm not going to be able to see this (it's in the UK), I thought it would be cool to post about it anyway considering it's the last of them. Dates are October 24th-26th.

Here are the bands:
--Day 1--
H.e.a.t (headliner)
Ten
The Poodles
Shy
Circus Maximus
Redrum
Angels Or Kings

--Day 2--
FireHouse (headliner, performing self-titled album in full)
Black 'N Blue
Pretty Maids
Babylon A.D.
Boulevard
From The Fire
Rage Of Angels

--Day 3--
Danger Danger (headliner, original lineup: Timmons, Ravel, West, Poley, Smith)
Autograph
Coney Hatch
Brother Firetribe
Touch
C.I.T.A./Guild Of Ages
Axxis

I would kill for FireHouse doing their whole debut! M3 needs to take some notes......

Another tedious AOR yawnfest that no one will go to. It ending is the least surprising thing ever.

80% sold out doesn't say "no one will go show up" to me. And c'mon, don't tell me you don't even like one band on this list? Even you can't be that hateful.

80% of a 2500 capacity club? Yeah, impressive.

I like one Ten album, does that count? Three days of campy soft rock sounds horrific to me.

I went to one day of this about 8 years ago, when Threshold headlined, with Demon and Steve Grimmett. They were awesome but the festival was awful and that was the last good day line-up they had.

I like Circus Maximus...

I saw Firehouse play to 20 people 10 miles from where I used to live a few years ago. I didn't think they were still headliner material.

Yeah you said no one wants to go so I just proved you wrong.

I can see you hating Autograph, FireHouse, Coney Hatch, and some others of that ilk on this lineup, but how can you not like Axxis or H.e.a.t? both of those bands write to darn catchy songs to not like.

Seriously, are you really 16?

For a festival, of any kind, 2500 people is nobody. It's the reason this festival is dead. It's never grown beyond that number of people in 10 years, but has kept putting its prices up nevertheless. Get some perspective.

By "darn catchy" you presumably mean generic and boring, right? They're two of the most unoriginal bands on the whole bill.
