Looks like Stoner vs Doom is canned for now - will be part of Hammerfest in Gt Yarmouth next year
There's only so many times Orange Goblin can headline before folk get bored. Tbh, I imagine the HRH guys always knew that these things had a limited shelf-life. The NWOBHM one was never going to last very long considering they basically booked every available NWOBHM band in current existence within the first two years. I can't see the Viking/Folk one lasting more than another couple of years too.
Hopefully, with C.R.O.W.S getting absorbed into the Blues event and Stoner/Doom getting absorbed into Hammerfest, then they'll begin concentrating on the main HRH festival again as those line-ups have taken a serious dip in quality since all these fringe events started.
