OK, so maybe the Amnesia Rockfest doesn’t have Bonnaroo’s star power, but damn if this year’s lineup is not a dream come true for all angsty kids of the ’90s (myself included).
The festival takes place in Montebello, QC between June 14th and 15th — so, yes, you do have to chose between this and Bonnaroo (!) — but the lineup features Rancid and Transplants, Social Distortion, Deftones, FLAG, Bad Brains, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Dropkick Murphys, The Adolescents, Sick of It All, Cro-Mags, H2O, Madball, The Lawrence Arms, Agnostic Front, Pennywise, The Offspring, and Lagwagon.
Also playing are Alice Cooper, Rise Against, Marilyn Manson, Lamb of God, Anthrax, Millencolin, Screeching Weasel, Fucked Up, Less Than Jake, Biohazard, Discharge, Mad Caddies, 7 Seconds, Comeback Kid, The Menzingers, The Flatliners, and a bunch of aspiring punk bands I’ve never heard of. But, like I said – damn.
Here’s what it looks looks like in poster form:
