    My favorite part of this thread is seeing the perception of the 5th & Headliner slots. Some of you are dead on accurate with the types of bands listed from both a popularity/sales standpoint, proven draw, and my budget.

    On the flip side, I do have to question the sanity of others for not only those slots, but some of the ones listed lower in the roster as well.

    Something I've been wondering. Given the difficulty of picking the correct slot, are points still awarded for a correct slot even if on the incorrect night?

    Can I assume your order was listed as headliner first down to opener?

    Is Axel Rudi Pell that popular? I doubt it. From what Glenn has said, I'm assuming the headliner of the fest is gonna be big and is going to get asses in the seats.

    Glenn, I'm pretty sure you're bored this time of year. With all of your downtime, you should respond to each and every guess with an estimated cost of that show.

    Axel Rudi Pell as a headliner would probably put more asses in the couches at home. :lol:

    nomisofsiman (i think) had the idea of someone creating something that would be able to tally up all the points once the final roster is announced so everyone could see how they did... and that would track which bands got the most votes. So I created a spreadsheet and have been tracking everyone's picks, and how many votes each band has received which in turn created a total number of all the bands picked. It's been a fun project. :loco:

    Thanks:worship:

    It's pretty sweet, doesn't look so great, but it gets the job done. All I have to do is type in the roster when it's announced and it automatically tallies up everyones picks and how many points everyone got :)

    Currently, Mob Rules is in the lead with 42 votes. :headbang:
