On Monday, Fest made their second and final lineup announcement. With so many bands playing, the staff at Lvl picked out some of their favorites so if you're in need of recommendation, we've got you covered. Our picks include Retirement Party, Prince Daddy & The Hyena, War on Women and a whole lot more.
"For the next headliners it would be the ultimate dream to see either Alkaline Trio or The Lawrence Arms (or both!) play. I also wouldn't mind seeing The Menzingers, Masked Intruder, Dillinger Four, The Ergs, or Propagandhi either."
"Going into Fest that first time, I only knew one other person who would be there, since then I've met so many others, including some of my favorite people in the whole world. Because of them I always have something to consistently look forward to every year. Fest isn't just a music festival, it's one big, sweaty, drunk, and extremely happy family and I can't wait until this year's family reunion!"
"I know for certain that whatever and whoever gets announced, I'm going to see dozens of bands I love and find dozens more new ones." We talked to Fest attendees about who they're excited to see, who they're hoping gets added to the lineup and much more.
