If you attended high school at any point between 1992-2005, and spent most of your time skateboarding, smoking and waiting for Jamie’s older sister to come back with beer, you’re going to love this year’s edition of Amnesia Rockfest. (For those of you who don’t know, Amnesia Rockfest is a summer festival that takes place in the rural town of Montebello, Quebec.) Via Consequence of Sound:
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.
