Can’t handle three days of triple fun? It’s all good. Sometimes life gets in the way of rock. The fine folks at Transmission Entertainment clearly get it. Daily lineups for this year’s November fest are out (surprisingly early) and at 10 a.m. today a limited number of $85 single day tickets for the festival go on sale.
Full daily lineups are below, but here are a quick reference pointers. Friday features epic metal from Judas Priest, Brit rock from Radiohead’s heir apparent and perhaps your best chance to get lucky (hint: Ginuine). On Saturday Nas celebrates 20 years of "Illmatic," King Diamond brings Danish metal fury and Death Cab for Cutie and New Pornographers fill your indie rock needs. Sunday provides a rare chance to catch your favorite indie band’s favorite indie band Neutral Milk Hotel and thrash rap act Death Grips. Also on Sunday, keep it weird with Flying Lotus then get "Young Wild and Free" with Wiz Khalifa.
