Reverend Horton Heat is playing on Sunday 6/4/2017, per both pollstar and RHH website.  I love how RHH doesn't respect Promowest's childish "hive hints" guessing game and just lists his appearance.  They should just announce the lineup without all of the other nonsense.

It's all about getting "hits" and "clicks", DrJohn, so I doubt they'll stop doing the "hivehints"...

I may stop by at the Woodward, maybe try and score some free tix, because they'll have some prizes to give away, right MK?

I'm mostly interested in the Shins and DCFC, if I decide to go. Haven't bought tix yet (which just went up to $179 plus Ticketbastard charges).

I must admit, many of the underscore bands don't ring a bell with me. I must be out of it, I suppose.

*edited* Did a quick sample of some of those names. Seems like a lot of rap/hip-hop/EDM names on there, not to mention also in the top names... <sigh> I dunno... Doesn't seem like my thing. I may just wait for the daily schedule and see if one of the days stands out to me. Maybe I'm just getting too damn old for this, LOL

I agree, but check out Dreamers, July Talk, San Fermin, Arkells & White Reaper. I'm not saying that they should make you go. Just check them out. July Talk is playing MOTR soon.

Thanks for the tips TayFo, but that's 4 bands (in addition to the other bands I mentioned earlier). Can't really justify buying a 3 days pass for that.

I'm just gonna wait for the daily schedule and if one day jumps out at me, I'll just do that.

This pretty much solidifies my writing off of Bunbury. Out of 42 bands there are 4 I would interested in seeing, but none of them enough that I want to watch them from 100 yards away. And the fact there are only 42 bands over 3 days shows how far this it has fallen. To compare, the first year there were 30 bands per day (and that isn't counting the silly DJ sets they had that year). Now they want me to pay twice as much for it.

The Enquirer's write-up about it was titled "Bunbury caters to the millenials". That may well be true. Let's face it, none of us here is a millenial.

I know we're all disappointed with how the festival has evolved in the last 2-3 years, but PromoWest doesn't care about us and certainly doesn't cater to us.

Anyway, I'll wait for the daily schedule and if one day jumps out at me, I'll probably go...

And if not, it was a nice 5 year run. Time to move on.
