I'm shocked. With the exception of Pendulum and Dragonforce, this isn't a bad lineup! And as I've said numerous times before, I love Limp Bizkit so I'd like to see them. Shame I got sod all cash.

Limp Bizkit's first disc had a couple of alright songs but the last one or two were so poppish and stupid. I remember hearing those song like my way and rollin and thought to myself "what are they thinking?" they dug their own grave but i guess they're getting a 2nd chance.
seeing them playing alongside Devildriver, god forbid and lamb of god is just weird.

I saw both Def Leppard and Whitesnake at Graspop last year on the friday. Def Leppard were surprisingly good, much better live than you'd expect. The less I say about Whitesnake's performance the better.

I'm just really trying to imagine what sort of person would actually be interested in all of these bands. Could their lineup get any more eclectic?
