Cant wait for it they'll announce one more band and the headliner of the second day ( probably that super group TItans of Rock )

It's a good line-up. Wouldn't mind seeing something like that in Portugal

This is a stellar line-up, some of these bands are the "shout your lungs out" type of bands, so Brazil is probably the best place to have a festival like this :p

The first and second day are awesome to me, the third one have some bands to enjoy too maybe isnt your taste. You might not heard about half of them, because half of them are nacional bands and most of them underground, most of them are death/thrash, even I dont know some bands there but the ones I know, they're very good bands and I'm looking forward to it ( it'll be my first festival ).

Esse festival foi um fiasco. mal organizado, pífio.
Lamentável como temos pessoas sem nenhuma noção de organização e compromisso aqui no Brasil.
Várias bandas nem foram ao festival por falta de pagamento.
Resumindo... patético!!

This festival was a fiasco. poorly organized, insignificant.
Regrettable as we have people with no sense of organization and commitment here in Brazil.
Several bands were not the festival for non-payment.
In short ... pathetic!
