    Probably sounds of the Underground because of SYL. Definetly not ozzfest, and most likely not Gigantour because of Dave. Who else is on Gigantour though?

    They all suck. If I had a shit-ton of money and could pick one, I'd go to Gigantour just for Nevermore and Megadeth. The signal-to-noise ratio at Ozzfest is embarassing, and Sounds of the Underground is possibly the worst package tour I have ever seen.

    If I had to go to one, I would just go REALLY LATE to Ozzfest and see just Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath.

    Travelling festivals seem to always be so shitty. Seems like one-off festivals are generally a lot better. Prog-Power ranges from nice to really great, and Maryland Deathfest is definitely great, wish I could go to that, and wish I hadn't been like really young for Prog Power III with two of my favorite progressive bands there.

    But between the travelling festivals, if I had to pick, Gigantour. The only band on Sounds Of The Underground I love is Strapping Young Lad, and I saw them on their headlining tour, so no need to see them in whatever thirty minute slot they have there.

    And the Gigantour lineup is:

    Megadeth
    Dream Theater
    Nevermore
    Fear Factory
    Dillinger Escape Plan

    Life Of Agony
    Symphony X
    Dry Kill Logic
    Boba Flex Warriors

    GWAR's stage show is the best, but I don't listen to their music.

    I'm going to Gigantour on Monday. I saw Opeth at an off-date from SOTU, and I will be seeing In Flames at an off-date from Ozzfest. So if you look at it, I will have practically attended all 3.

    Don't compare Gigantour to Ozzfest. Dave Mustaine said not to.

    I will end up going to all of them because of my zine, but the only one I am going to as just a fan is Gigantour. The other two I will just be there to do photos.
