  1. Julian says:

    Dude if you only like bad religion on this you’re listening to the wrong station. This is alternative rock, hence all the more interesting bands rather than the hard rock/grunge.

  2. smokes says:

    what if i want to see a band play and another band play but i don’t know at what time they play so i can see them both are they going to be announced or will i miss it?

    1. mindy says:

      Smokes –
      We’ll post a schedule of the bands on each stage once we get closer to festival time. The stages overlap, so there will be some bands you have to pick and choose. But the Festival stage will end before the Main stage starts, so you can see all of those bands.

  3. John says:

    I can’t believe you aren’t having Rise Against play!!! the day before BFD the “Weenie Roast” has half these people playing for them plus Linkin Park so I’m surprised you guys didn’t get Rise Against to come since they r in town…..but I LOVE THE LINE UP ANYWAYS

  4. Marcelle says:

    what time will the Strokes be playing? what i really wanna know is if i have to catch a plane at 9:30 pm, will i still have time to see them?

  5. T.J. says:

    Young Digerati, K. Flay, The Limousines, Finish Ticket…I’m torn between trying to see their sets and trying to get a decent view of the Bud Light Stage… D =

  6. Guest says:

    Why does it have 4-pack lawn listed if you cant buy them. There is no such deal coming up when i try to buy tickets and it doesnt say limited supply.

    1. mindy says:

      The BFD 4-pack of tickets is now sold out. Single tickets are still available.

  7. andreas says:

    How do you buy the 4 pack lawn: $105 (that’s $26.25 per ticket)? It seems that you can only buy the 40 or 60 dollars tickets at stubhub and live nation dot com.

  8. sarah says:

    Does anyone know what time everyone goes on. Also I know it starts and 11am what time does it in?

    1. sarah says:


      1. Rabbit says:

        Should end around 11pm

  9. Shane says:

    Linking Park, Neon Trees. Fuck yeah! Oh and the Strokes. XD

  10. simplyamd says:

    1. whitemenace says:

  11. Yasmin says:

    Does anyone know if they are signing autographs! ♥

    1. mindy says:

      Yes, there will be an autograph booth at BFD!

  12. Yasmin says:

    Also, I bought tix for the mainstage does that mean I have to buy another tix for admission

    1. mindy says:

      Main stage tickets will also provide you with admission to the rest of the stages, you are all set for BFD!

      1. britney says:

        what are set times?

  13. Yasmin says:

    OMG thank you so much, and your not sure what time the main stage line up is playing? ♥

  14. Kate says:

    Does anyone know what time the main stage performances starts?

  15. DA_Hitman says:

    “All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run baby run, out run my gun. All the other kids the pumped up kicks you run baby run, faster then my bullet”!

  16. Julian says:

    Set times????

  17. Julian says:

    Set times????

  18. cd says:

    so, are the set times available yet?

  19. Brett says:

  20. RAR says:

    I dont give a shit about Snoop…I am only going for Bad Religion,Cage the Elephant,Awolnation and Manchester Orchestra!…Too bad Gaslight Anthem wont be on the lineup again this year…

  21. Jeani Morrow says:

    Does anyone know what time the main stage acts start?

    1. KevTheRev says:

  22. sonia says:

    I am just going to see cage the elephant and the strokes. Will i be able to go in around 4pm and will there still be enough parking?

  23. azreal says:

  24. sonia says:


  25. Nelson says:

    Hey I love the lineup! But are you guys fucking retarded or just pretentious assholes!? The only way I can see the set times before the show is if I buy a fucking iphone/pad? My normal internet works just fine, you couldnt have some intern do 5 fucking minutes of typing? If I miss Manchester Orchestra you can bet your ass there will be hell to pay

  26. Mike says:

    Am I the only one here excited to see Foster the People? Has anyone heard their ablum yet? It’s freakin bananas!

  27. will towne says:

  29. Live 105's 80s/90s Faded Glory says:

    Morrissey was right, there is no justice in this world. If there was, THE STROKES would headline this gig (as evidenced by Live 105’s own poll showing THE STROKES as the top choice with 32.94% of votes.)

    Thanks for re-posting Morrissey’s perspective on new group Young the Giant. They sound quite sincere and evocative. Now I can look forward to more than just THE STROKES, BAD RELIGION, and SNOOP.

    I have never understood LINKIN PARK. Payola, perhaps? (Aren’t they a bit thick? I guess my favourite bands aren’t for everyone either.)

  30. ~ mama b says:

    I’m very excited for bfd this year, yes, even in the rain, but do we have set times yet???

      1. Bill says:

        My mistake, I had no idea this starts so late. I would love to see LP but they’re not even scheduled to take the stage until 9:30? On a school night? My teenager has finals the next day. With gas so expensive and $40 parking we will probably just burn the $142. My mistake, my bad.
