    this looks okay, a little too much emo punk for me. But Jacob Fred, Dumpstafunk and Breakstra are sweet.

    Before all these kids who think they are hippies because they don't bathe and get high get on here and start bashing the lineup, I want to say that this is an incredible, diverse lineup and i will see you all there.
