Re: Use of Referendums

Referendums should, broadly speaking, (virtually) never be binding. Legally binding or not, it's virtually impossible for a government to press ahead with a policy when the majority has voted for something else. Cameron could have said "yeah, but it was only advisory - we'll stay in the EU&quo...

Re: Next Announcement

Skindred always strike me as a band who don't really care about where they play, as long as they get to play. Judging by the lineup on the website it looks like they'll be playing under Vio-Lence, so unless Vio-Lence are special guest (which is highly unlikely, and would've been announced at the ti...

Re: Use of Referendums

Referendums should, broadly speaking, (virtually) never be binding. It's rare that a population is clued up enough on a subject and its nuances to be able accurately decide what they want and is best for them. Effectively, they are giant opinion polls and nothing more.

Re: Next Announcement

I'm slightly surprised Skindred weren't announced as a special guest tbh. They were,what, 3rd top last time, and drew HUGE crowd.

Would be brilliant, particularly now the original singer is back too.

Re: Evile

Yeah, would be mint. Probs end up on main stage, but I reckon they could headline the Thursday too and it would be fun.

Re: Unleash the Archers

Long overdue I think (I can only assume the timings have never matched up). A definite yes.

Re: Devin Townsend

Would be the perfect Friday headliner I think - a massive yes from me.

Re: Turisas

As long as it's not the Sunday Sophie headliner slot (we normally head home then), then a big yes from me. Thursday would seem logical to me.

Re: Next Announcement

I could see Skindred being a Special Guest. IIRC they were 3rd down last time and drew one of the single largest crowds I've ever seen at the festival. They'll headline in a few years for sure.

Re: Next Announcement

Size wise, I'd say Parkway's was pretty close to the middle of the pack for all the headline bands I've seen since I started attending in 2009.

Re: Next Announcement

Parkway's show was magnificent. Great use of lighting and general pyro, and the sound was really good for them. Admittedly, if you don't like their style of music, then you may struggle, but that was definitely a headliner worthy show from a talented band. We had about 10 people in our group, most o...

Re: Next Announcement

Strong rumour amongst the campsite was that Devin and Behemoth (with Orchestra) are 2 of the 3 headliners.
