Yeah, I don't believe those other bands are worthy of playing with such genius.

Its Big Day Out, of course its a shit lineup. Its all about crap new rock not metal. Occasionally some big bands will play (Metallca, Megadeth, Tool), but its an event i will never ever go to. The turn up is huge though some 60-80 thousand people every year, Wacken is 30-40 thousand maybe?
