It has to get a lot better than this. And no Chili Peppers please, they are past it. Hell, they're nearly as old as me.

Bit of a bummer. Soundgarden will be great, they have really hit their straps lately. Nothing else I really want to see :\

Crap lineup compared to Tool, Rammstein and Grinderman from 2011. Who wants to see K West headline? Not me!

Every year there's one act people moan about. Personally I'm really looking forward to seeing Kanye do his thing. Also Soundgarden, Kasabian, Battles and BEASTWARS are all going to ROCK!! I was hoping to see the Beastie Boys on the list though.

was really hoping for Primus to be announced, apart from a couple of the bands it looks more like an EDGE Summer Jam line-up - weak !
