what a lame lineup. cant they get anyone good, like phish or panic, jeesh. maybe if they didnt list one band ahead of the rolling stones i would go but that just blew it for me, they are so dumb cuz now i wont go. wheres the DSO, this doest even jam.

The reason Arctic Monkeys are in front of The Stones on the lineup is probably b/c The Stones headline Saturday whereas Arctic Monkeys play Friday.
