Loved that KK`s band were doing someth...

Re: Next Announcement

Hobgoblin IPA is definitely a positive Whilst there is a differential in musical taste on here the grumbling is down to quite a few thoughts that the festival is moving away from it`s audience and more towards a smaller imitation of Download. The other being the quality of the booking this year I am...

Re: Next Announcement

This forum is amazing! I love reading the quality of posts love or hating these announcements, always some damn good points raised Personally bumping up PL as much as I like them to SG`s again isnt a worthy 20th Anniversary, but nor do I think two of the headliners are ready "this year" an...

Re: Next Announcement

Insomnium and Tribulation would be good I reckon but I still smell a Kerbdog somewhere :lol: I honestly hope that someone from the organising team does look on here, some good stuff and opinions. Want to make the festival better? Put some chippings or something to soak the mud up near the toilets an...

Re: Bands Changing Musical Style

The obvious ones who could transcend boundaries succesfully before it was universally popular to do so- Queen and Led Zeppelin In fact Robert Plant particuarly continues to do so, looking forward rather than back Deep Purple changed their sound greatly under Coverdale/Hughes into what would be be th...

Re: Bands Changing Musical Style

Re: Next Announcement

The long term strategy is interesting, if they indeed have one(?) Are they looking to add 5-10k on the gate in the next couple of years or remain as it is? If they are they will alienate a good amount if it goes "Download lite" or do they just intend spending more on the same thing but mor...
