Themed stages

A lot of festivals have stages devoted to certain genres/subgenres. Should BOA follow suit? It seems to work well for Hellfest, Alcatraz etc

Re: Next Announcement

Beast in Black are number 2 in the UK rock album charts, not even on the BOA lineup this year. Could easily be in a midcard slot on Main stage.

Re: Next Announcement

It also doesn't help that BOA is one of the latest festivals in the year, and can only really poach bands from Wacken who mainly cater to older fans, and who also have a tendency to make really questionable bookings. BOA falls in to the 2nd cycle of the festival season, meaning they can attract ban...

Re: Next Announcement

Alien weaponry are a good example of a band on an upwards trajectory who could have easily opened the main stage this year instead of a band like Cancer Bats who have been irrelevant for a decade. Jinjer are another band who would be worthy of a mainstage slot.

Re: Next Announcement

People saying bands like Parkway Drive are the future, yet most people will agree that its the worst looking day in BOA history. How much better would this day be -

King Diamond
Dimmu Borgir
Testament
Cradle of Filth
Equilibrium
Unleashed
Zeal & Ardor
Lord of the Lost
Grand Magus

Re: Next Announcement

Bit of a stupid business move in my opinion. Alienate your existant customer base and shit all over it in order to target a new customer base,of which will likely go to Reading and/or Download anyway and at best will only buy day tickets, thus not selling more tickets and possibly selling less as th...

Re: Next Announcement

Saturday is horrendous, Only really interested in Scorpions on the Sunday. So I can't justify a weekend ticket, although there might be a few gems on the Sophie stage, but I'm not holding my breath considering the biggest bands are Grand Magus and Taake who would be low down on main. So probably not...

Re: Next Announcement

So instead of trying to nullify the shitstorm of the last announcement, they announce more metalcore bands. We'll done BOA.

Re: Next Announcement

This whole situation has become pathetic. On both sides, Vicky and BOA aren't blameless in all this either and have fuelled the fire over the course of a couple of days and I can't help but think they're loving the attention. Sharing Metal Hammers post on reactions to the announcement, posting exagg...

Re: Next Announcement

PWD or not, that Saturday is one of the worst looking days at a festival I've ever seen. Sunday isn't much better to be fair. Whereas the Friday is stacked.
