I guess that's possible, although it would be a completely different vibe than last year. Maybe it was just me, but I thought most of the crowd last year was there for the live music. Take that away and I don't think the crowd comes out.

It's MTV, free food and drinks with celebrities on a stage.....the crowd will come out. The crowd comes out for absolutely ANY free thing at SDCC. I hope you guys get a band right there in-person too, but I could see them trying the "live from across town" One Direction thing. It'd be pretty efficient!

I doubt that they'll do a simulcast of One Direction. At the most, MTV could have a taped segment where the band accepts their award, that is, if they actually end up winning their category.

Also, I've been assuming that MTV has been "late" announcing bands. But I looked at their 2013 announcement and it was made on July 15th-- that was just three days before the Party in the Park which was on the 18th.

MTV would have to get the broadcast rights to the concert. Considering that this is airing on a Sunday night I don't see that happening.

Yeah I don't see one D agreeing. They are too big and don't need it.

No one hopes I'm wrong more than me. :). I'm not what you would describe as their demographic. Ha.

I've seen updates today about the time for this event, but no mention of live music at all. In fact, they're promoting, "food, drinks, games and giveaways."  My strong bet is now no live bands. Saves me some time, I guess, although the Linkin Park set last year was one of the highlights of our week.

Does anyone remember what the schedule was like last year?  In terms of when performances were in span of awards show?

This would be the week to announce an act, so I'd still hold out hope... unless schedule has drastically changed.

If memory serves, they had awards for about an hour, G Easy played about a 6-song set, then gave out awards for about another half hour, then Linkin Park played a 7 or 8-song set.

The SDCC Unofficial blog just reported that All Time Low and Flo Rida will be performing at the MTV Fanfest this year. For me personally, I will probably skip it, just not as impressed as last year with Linkin Park, but hey, that is just me, I'm sure there will be others who will be happy.

A straight line may be the shortest distance between two points, but it is by no means the most interesting”

Damn, I really like Flo Rida.  Now, time for decisions, again. Imma need to split off into three or four me's to handle all the lines I need to be in on Thursday. :)

Called it!! haha

I've liked ATL for a longgg time, but I'm not really that into their newer stuff..I don't know if they're enough to draw me to this when there is so much else going on.

Hmm, I'll have to think about it.

Thanks for the info. I'd been away from the computer for a few hours. We like All Time Low, but didn't go out of our way to see them in Charlotte a couple months ago (I think it was the exact same day we had tickets to see The Who) and I can't see that announcement swaying us to hit this event.

I asked Michelle from MTV if I need a Thursday Comic Con Badge or any day badge will suffice.
She said any day badge would suffice.

If anyone want to confirm again.. just email her.
