A new festival that will take place in Australia. I heard on the radio today that The Offspring will be headlining.

http://www.liveguide.com.au/News_and_Reviews/6/16517/Offspring_Good_Charlotte_For_Megarampage_Festival


90s punk band The Offspring will be joined by Good Charlotte and The Wu Tang Clan for the forthcoming Megarampage festival, which hits Melbourne this October.

The main focus of the festival is the Megaramp, which is "the largest ramp the southern hemisphere has ever seen". The press release goes on to say that "some of the world's best skaters and BMX riders" will be present to strutt their stuff on the ramp, including Danny Way, Bob Burnquist and Jake Brown.

The ramp is said to be over 9 storeys high and "as long as a football field". The action takes place at Melbourne's Etihad Stadium on October 31.

The line-up:

The Offspring

Good Charlotte

It says The Offspring will play sideshows in Sydney and Brisbane, not just Melbourne.

I won't go to Greenday now, I just don't have the money. If I was 18 and had enough money, it would have been Rise Against, NOFX, Bad Religion, Greenday and The Offspring all in one year :(.

Wu-Tang better fucking come to Sydney, because I can't go to them. Already seeing Nas on the 31st.

I don't need to mention The Offspring cause I know they're good for it :)

Dude!! Huge skate ramp, awesome bands, and a festival name that makes it sound like the security force will consist entirely of robots with lasers (PEW! PEW! PEW!). Australia is so lucky.

Nah, I'm too busy imagining my face smeared all along the side of the thing. But give me some wax and burlap sack, and this would make a hell of a carnival slide.

Nope.

If it was a water slide like the other guy said though..:D

Seeing as The Offspring are going to Aussie, I think they should jump over here to NZ whilst they're at it and play some shows. Specifically, a show for Massey Uni students in Palmerston North at the Murphy's Law pub where I like to spend my drinking nights.:D

Sideshows are up, and we got them at the Enmore Theatre! Best suited venue for them in Sydney, and a 5 minute walk from my front door! And the day after next Nas is playing at the same venue! I couldn't be happier.

I wish Melbourne didn't get the MegaRampage, and just got the sideshow instead. $135 dollars! And I'm not into skating that much either :(
After this I would have seen them twice, and it would have costed me a total of $255, for two shows!

ugh they have to announce adelaide/perth shows. with such little notice it freaking sucks for people such as myself who wont be able to fly out anywhere to see them

they don't have any other tour dates around the time so surely there's a slight possibility.. this is killing me! a 9 year strong fan doesn't need to have the burden of not being able to see them so soon!!!!!!!!!!!
