Unfortunately there’s no Nine Inch Nails, which was heavily rumoured – perhaps Deftones could fill the void? However, I was really hoping to see Mastodon and The Dillinger Escape Plan return for 2014 (I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the second announcement).

Nevertheless, I’m happy with Alice in Chains, Placebo, Down, Clutch, Rocket From The Crypt, Baroness and holy shit, a blast from the past – Living Colour! I can’t wait to hear Corey Glover sing the shit out of the Soundwave stage!

Living Colour, Love Rears Up It’s Ugly Head (this went to Number #1 in Oz back in the 90’s):
