Good god, this is the stuff dreams are made of.



That up there is the line-up poster for the 10th annual Amnesia Rockfest, which takes place in Quebec, Canada this June.

Here's why it's going to be epic.

1. System Of A Down are headlining
And they very rarely play shows these days. As rumours of a new album continue to circulate and a European stint looms in April, could we be seeing SOAD getting properly back to work?

2. Full album sets. Loads of 'em!
Want to hear The Offspring crack out 'Americana' in full? How about Deftones doing 'Around The Fur' from start to finish? Or maybe you want to see punk legends Rancid bash out 'And Out Come The Wolves' in its entireity? All of that is happening.

3. THRICE ARE PLAYING. 
Yep, Thrice are a band again and their first confirmed show is at Amnesia Rockfest. This is HUGE news.

4. Everything else
Just look at that poster. LOOK AT IT! Other names set to feature across the weekend include: Slayer, Snoop Dogg, Rob Zombie, Tenacious D, Pixies, Sublime With Rome, Bad Religion, Refused, Coheed And Cambria, Story Of The Year, Flogging Molly, Gogol Bordello, Propagandhi, Goldfinger, Less Than Jake, Good Riddance, Ten Foot Pole, The Bouncing Souls, Satanic Surfers, Buzzcocks, Descendents, ALL, The Exploited, GBH, Ministry, Skinny Puppy, Parkway Drive, Down, Fear Factory, Atreyu, Carcass, Bolt Thrower and more. If you can't find something you love in all of that, there might not be much we can do for you.

Amnesia Rockfest takes place across the weekend of June 18 - 21, 2015 in Montebello, Quebec. That's in Canada, that is.
