    I'm pleased that it doesn't seem as though the guest name will be required...that would have made for a potentially disadvantageous situation.

    Also...looks like it's still at the brewery...can't wait for the sardine party!

    I didn't see anything about prices for bottles. Is that generally something that is announced?

    I don't think they announced bottle price or allotment until right before the show last year.

    I saw someone mention it earlier, if you are worried about the $15 price increase you have bigger issues to worry about. Either way I'm glad it is at the brewery and not the park.

    I can afford it, that's not the problem...doesn't mean I want to pay it.

    If you're actually coming all the way out from Maine then I'll have to consider attempting to get a ticket. I cant miss an opportunity to gush about my home state with another Mainugh!

    Admission tickets sales will be limited to 2 per person. Dark Lord allocations will be per person, not per ticket, however.

    Kinda sucks if you have to split your stash with a buddy and possibly only get one scratch off ticket if you get two tix, would be super risky going for two separate tickets....hmmm

    This is simply stating you cannot walk in with 2 tickets by yourself and get 2 scratch off's and 2 allocations of DL.

    Don't worry, the next time 3 Floyds makes an update, this thread will be locked and we will yearn for this piece of shit in the next thread.

    What we learned:
    -Venue is FFF still
    -No guaranteed BA DL
    -No refunds, no reselling, "No admission will be granted without the original purchaser being present to validate their ticket with their valid state or federal ID or valid passport." In other words, you buy these tickets and your plans change, too bad.

    No mention of soy sauce in the flavor description on the site.

    Sardine party is better than a lemon party. Seriously, don't google lemon party.

    Lots of new info. And no unfounded rumors like how it will be in some park.

    I bet that people will still be buying them and trying to sell on ebay/Craigslist and claiming the tickets are transferable.

    I'm still trying to wrap my head around the idea that FFF cares enough to put our names on the tickets.

    Someone just needs to make the definitive DLD thread then all these pretender threads can go away once and for all. Forever. Because that will totally solve the problem.

    Agreed. Unfortunately, we're still two locked threads away from a definitive thread. The definitive thread then will be nuked approximately 2 days after DLD after the litany of complaints pile up for reasons yet to be determined. So we'll be left with a residual definitive thread made up of complaints surrounding how the beer tastes like soy sauce. Such is the circle of life the Dark Lord.

    Supposedly High on Fire will be back.

    Municipal Waste, Pig Destroyer, Eyehategod are all likely since their beers came out this year.
