Here's a poster of it. Another decent line-up though I'm not really big on the look of the headliners on AB's day. Again, I found it interesting that AB is placed over Theory of a Deadman (the band that headline the 2011 Carnival of Madness over AB).

I find it weird that 311 is near the top at all. Especially above Staind?

Cant complain. 5 of like my 6 favorite bands are on this bill. 110% going. Cant fucking wait for Alter Bridge, Staind, Volbeat, Adelitas Way, 5fdp, Fozzy, Redlight King, and Fuel.
this is my favorite Carolina Rebellion lineup ever. So stoked.

Excuse my ignorance but who is Volbeat and how are they so famous? I seriously think I've never heard one song from them yet they are ahead of bands like Killswitch Engage. Are they that good?

They're a really good live band. I've seen them a couple times, and they bring tons of energy. I can't remember where they're from right off...somewhere in Europe.

Edit: Dutch, thank you austin haha.

I've heard one of their songs (A Warrior's Call and Heaven Nor Hell?) at least once a day on my Dallas/Fort Worth radio station that I listen to. I can't say if they are good or not since, well, those tracks I mentioned are so overplayed that I can't judge them too well.

Apparently, they have a decent fanbase worldwide. Bigger than AB's for sure with the exception of the UK.

They're sort of "death metal" with some contemporary mainstream stuff. They're heavy and rock hard. Look up Still Counting, A Warriors Call, and heaven nor hell.

Here's what the wiki says about them.
Volbeat are a Danish rock band which was formed in Copenhagen. They play a fusion of rock and roll, heavy metal and rockabilly.

Danish! That's it. Lol

And the wiki description is pretty accurate. They cover Johnny Cash live sometimes, but they also can get heavy. I saw them cover part of Raining Blood last year.

I knew they were "Danish"
I just thought Dutch and Danish were the same... because I'm an idiot.

I saw them opening for Rammstein on a festival. They were kinda boring to be honest.. They're becoming pretty big though.

Also: Lol @ Volbeat being Dutch. I'm trying to imagine the singer with a Dutch accent now.

I litterally cant get this off my mind. The stage seems to be a huge long ass stage with atleast two (but thinking 3) bands rigs set up at once. So if AB is at say stage 1 on the far left. Then Staind is say on stage 3 to the far right. Id be like literally a quarter mile away from one of them. Push through drugged up music fans to get to the other side?
Hoping for a good in depth image of the stage setups.

I'm seriously considering finding someone with an Rv to borrow and do the 6 man full hookup Rv thing. It'll be alot cheaper than a hotel. If I do this, I will want my ABN friends to join me.
Can we get a roll call of going/possibly going?
the Rv package is only like 150 for both days, I can cover that. Everyone else can park at the grounds and I can mail everyone their Rv pass or however it works.
post in here and let me know if interested and ill work on it.
