Why Go: With Avenged Sevenfold headlinging and Korn playing directly beforehand, this one is going to get loud. It might not be very rockstar, but earplugs aren't a bad idea for those who want to catch early acts like Suicide Silence (touring for the first time since the death – motorcycle accident – of frontman Mitch Lucker), mosh to the later ones and still be able hear their buddies scream about how awesome it all was on the drive home.
15 Must-See Acts: Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, Asking Alexandria, Trivium, Cannibal Corpse, Body Count, Suicide Silence, Miss May I, Mushroomhead, Emmure, Veil of Maya, Ill Nino, Texas Hippie Coalition, Veil of Maya, Upon a Burning Body
