Re: Next Announcement

Pretty sure I read that they had 12000 in 2015 and 15000 last year. Catton Hall has a capacity of around 30000. Having DTP or Kreator headlining would be damaging not only for ticket sales but legitamacy of headliners, if bands like Kreator can headline then so can any band who would normally be 3rd...

Re: Next Announcement

DTP weren't big enough to headline last time they played, certainly aren't now. SG at best.

Some people's suggestions are ridiculous, they already have AA headlining, another smaller headliner would be devastating for this years event.

Re: Next Announcement

Kreator aren't anywhere close to a headlining band. They were 3rd from top 6 year ago and haven't gotten any bigger. DTP are special guest size at best. Ghost are similar size to Gojira, are they even doing festivals next year? FFDP; there's nothing to say they're touring beyond June/ July in Europe.

Re: Next Announcement

All we know is they can't announce the last headliner due to contractual obligations, if this is true we are looking at a band that is currently on tour or playing another festival. The only bands remaining that are in Europe in August where this might apply are - Trivium - UK leg of their current t...

Re: Next Announcement

What a terrible announcement. Wintersun are ok, Macabre are absolutely shite. Soilwork and Scarab meh.

I'm certain Trivium will be the final headliner now. They're currently touring Europe, last UK show of this tour is 18th Feb, wouldn't surprise me if we get an announcement around then.

Re: Next Announcement

Korn are a uk festival exclusive for Reading and Leeds.

Baby Metal are easily big enough to headline BOA. People comparing them to Gojira are delusional.

Re: Next Announcement

Can't believe so many people here would be happy with Sabaton, they played 2 years ago! Being bumped up to headliner makes them even more of a waste of a slot, would rather have something new even if it's Killswitch. I'd like to see Manowar, would be great fun! Interestingly Sabaton are on the fron...

Way too expensive. They turned down headlining Download's second stage as it 'wasn't big enough'.



So did Twisted Sister

Re: Next Announcement

Why would Volbeat be special guests in a year we have Amon Amarth headlining, that makes no sense, Volbeat are a much bigger band.

Re: Next Announcement

Parkway Drive could headline in a year where there's 2 strong headliners. No way are they headlining when Amon Amarth are already one of the headliners.

Re: Next Announcement

Surely the last headliner will be a band already announced for festivals -

Alice Cooper
Emperor
Marilyn Manson
Trivium
Volbeat

Re: Next Announcement

Dream Theater would be a superb headliner. People saying they're not big enough, they're at least twice as big as Amon Amarth.

Put it like this; DT would headline 2nd stage at Download, AA would be 3rd from top on the 2nd stage.
