Wow, this is a lot to take in and a true festival and celebration of rock.  When the real festivals took off it was all about people being exposed to all different types of music.  This festival covers everything from Metal to Grunge to Classic and more. This is a chance to enjoy a lot for very, very little.

So you probably didn't catch all 21 bands announced for this show, so here we go:

Okay so 21 bands.  Music will start at 12:30.  We're gonna get wild with purple body paint and we're going to deck out the Amp.  Amazingly, tix are under $40 (base) and we're going to knock out a four for $100 special for the first 250 to purchase.

Now, a little disclaimer.  Every time we have a HUGE show, we have a few problems with the lineup.  If there's only one band that you like on this lineup, then DON'T buy a presale ticket.  21 bands means there's a couple hundred people that could have a problem, a death in the family, or some other type of dysfunction.  It's just the law of averages that there might be a problem with one or more of the bands.   With that said, we think this represents an absolutely EPIC moment in Lubbock rock history.  I hope everyone is cool enough to respect and check out each others music.  Even if you don't, I look at it this way, if you like 90's rock, Bush and Candlebox make it worth your bucks.  If you like stuff from now, Hollywood Undead and Theory of a Deadman make it worth your bucks. If you like more classic stuff, how about Tesla?  I also know kids that would pay the money just for Falling in Reverse.

If you're down for a good time, watch your FMX Bombsquad email for a message Wednesday morning with a special code.  250 four packs will be sold for $100 (base price, and I believe there is only one, or a reduced service charge on the order).
