    I saw Chevelle open for Disturbed.

    I saw Of Monsters & Men play immediately before Florence & the Machine at a festival.

    I saw Weezer play immediately before Kendrick Lamar (sort of in Rock Band!) at a festival.

    I saw Korn, Jane's Addiction and Blink-182 play back-to-back at a festival.

    I saw Limp Bizkit, Bring Me the Horizon and Rise Against play back-to-back at a festival.

  • Almost saw Metallica/Guns n Roses. Thanks to a horrible work emergency, I couldn't attend and missed a riot instead.

    Otherwise, I saw Duran Duran/David Bowie way back when -- Glass Spider Tour.

    I picked up tickets yesterday for Metallica with A7X opening, which will add two more artists to my list and add another "A opens for B" combo.

  • LordFlatusLordFlatus Rising Star

    Children of Bodom x3
    Godsmack
    HIM
    Megadeth
    Motorhead
    Nightwish x2
    Rancid
    Testament

    99% of bands i've seen live is not in RB. Thousands of great metal bands are left out while classic bands have playlists of songs that no one asked for, while some of the good band have 1 song and its not even the best one...

    Sometimes i cringe over the available music to play, but whatever, Harmonix knows best, after all they don't want my money...

    Help me make a tough decision! Either one would knock a bunch of RB artists off my list, and I have friends committed to go to both (I've got one of my three best friends going to each, so doesn't really factor in). Should I go to Osheaga, should I go to Rockfest, or should I somehow try to scrape together enough money to somehow attend both? Let me hear your opinions on the line-ups in the hopes you can sway me.

    If you like heavier music or are more into punk/ska, then by all means Rockfest (especially with Alexisonfire playing there and At The Drive-In).

    Osheaga's better for more indie tastes and EDM lovers. Though the experiences will of course vary at each (though the headliners at both are solid)!

    Or who knows, maybe you can attend both and everybody wins :p

    Do you want to rock or do you want to sleep?
  • firedoom666firedoom666 Headliner
    Rammstein was the best concert I have ever been to (of course it was only them not an entire festival so I don't know how that would affect it)

    so if you really like them I would recommend that one, but if not they choose what you enjoy most.
  • Meshuggah goes, of course you have to go!
  • TheStuddzTheStuddz Lil Rascal
    I like about 20 bands playing Osheaga (including one of my favourites) whereas I'd be doing Rockfest for QotSA, Iggy and maybe two or three others alone (not my type of music, really). Osheaga's headliners are kind of weak this year too (I don't really like The Weeknd, especially compared to last year when they had RHCP and Radiohead).

    But I've done both festivals in the past few years and they're good for different reasons: Rockfest is a crazy weekend of debauchery in the middle of nowhere where everyone is stinky and sweaty and in full party mode, while Osheaga is great vibes, sleeping comfortably in a hotel and just enjoying good music in a beautiful city with a bunch of beautiful hippie wannabes. They both appeal to me for different reasons.
  • WoodenGloryWoodenGlory Unsigned
    Beautiful hippie wannabes, eh?

    If they wannabe MY lover

    They really gotta get with my friends
  • calloycalloy Unsigned
    both.
  • hiimSMAPhiimSMAP Road Warrior
    I see more good music on the Osheaga one but they both have their ups and downs
  • calloycalloy Unsigned
    I'm for seeing all the bands you can, when you get a fairly good chance. I can see you not having the money for both, but if you can stretch it, I would do it. you never know what band is going to get into an irreconcilable argument, or worse, crash into the side of a mountain

    If it's 20 bands vs 3 bands why is it even a question?
  • Rockfest by miles for me.
    Would be nice to see Muse but honestly nothing else really jumps out on the other festival.
    Although Festivals sort of suck because you get a small set and it feels like it's over in 10 minutes (even though its like 30 i believe)

    Rockfest is about half the price, and a more easy-going experience (you can walk around the small town it takes place in with beer in your hand, they don't frisk you for your "concert cigarettes", the camping experience is kinda fun if you have a good group of buddies with you). Plus even though there's only about three bands I really like, I always go see a whole bunch of others just to say I did. Like last year, I saw bands like KoRn, Limp Bizkit and Lamb of God. I'd never pay to see those, but cool to be able to say I did.

    Most of the artists get about 40 minutes, with sub-headliners getting an hour and headliners getting an hour and a half. Not bad, really. I typically prefer festivals because why pay $50-100 to see one band when you can pay $250 to see twenty?

    Agreed. The OP asked for opinions, so here's mine: Rammstein stomps the crap out of Muse in the headliner category, and nothing else even compares for the rest of the lineups. While I wouldn't mind seeing Foster the People/Cage the Elephant/MGMT, I personally would rate them closer to Teenage Bottlerocket in my desire to see them, and I would put Teenage Bottlerocket above them all. And TB is listed in little text.

    Die Antwoord is actually the only band listed on the Osheaga bill that I would really like to see.

    Bad Company
    Def Leppard
    Depeche Mode (2 times)
    Elle King
    Elvis Costello
    Foreigner
    Heart (2 times)
    Journey
    Pat Benatar
    REO Speedwagon
    Steely Dan
    Styx
    "Weird Al" Yankovic (3 times)

    Can finally add to this after almost a year, as I just saw Elle King live. Was a great show - obviously she played "Ex's & Oh's", though I kind of wished she played "Good Girls" (from the Ghostbusters soundtrack) and her new single "Wild Love". Still, I can't complain too much as she did the other great singles from her debut album ("America's Sweetheart" and "Under the Influence") and even a cover of the Beatles' "Oh! Darling".

    I went to see Kaleo and The Lumineers last week. One is in RBVR, and I hope the other comes to the platform soon, at least an obvious hit like "Ho Hey".

    Guess Chicago is different. Most the bands I seen only got 30 minutes, of course they weren't the headliners.

    @Xzalor Ugh, don't say that! Alabama Shakes are my favourite band, and none of my friends want to go so it looks like I'm going to miss out on seeing them. It breaks my heart.

    They do want to attend Rockfest though, where the only band I care about is QotSA. At least I get to see one good band this year.

    I don't really remember how long acts played for at Osheaga, but I know at Rockfest the only acts to get 30 minute slots were those that played around 12pm - 3pm. Everyone later in the afternoon and into the evening got sizeable slots, with the two acts playing between 10 and 12 getting an hour each (headliners played from midnight to 1:30 am).

    Osheaga may have had a few more 30 minute slots (especially on side stages), but I definitely saw a decent amount of bands play for 40-60 minutes.
  • I get to go see Green Day next Monday, I'm so pumped up!!!

    I'm gonna see Blink-182 for the first time in May. Very excited about that. I saw Save Ferris a month? ago. That was fun.
