Final guess is what i originally said-any 2 from Epica/Kreator/Opeth as co-headliners.(although apparently it's not a headliner announcement today).
If that's the case i'll go Sanctuary and Insomnium.

Why are people expecting good bands? Have you learnt nothing?!!

I'll go for Parkway Drive headlining, Asking Alexandria special guests and Beholder playing a different set on each day.

Hahaha, well we know it's not a headliner, I'm expecting one good band (Kreator), one bad band (possibly loved by Kerrang for 2 months about 20 years ago) and one unknown band (probably some American Shouty Bollocks).

I'm not 'expecting' a good announcement-more 'hoping'-and let's face it-we are due some decent bands soon surely!

Actually, my guesses probably included too many 'bigger' or 'well known' bands.

New prediction - Kreator, Ghoul, and a random British thrash band from the late 80s/early 90s (you know the kind - maybe had an EP / demo or two that 'did the rounds', and they might have supported a band you've heard of on a tour or two type thing).

They are pretty good-singer sounds quite a bit like Chris Astley at times(which is one reason why i like them).Haven't got the new one yet but i'll order it later today-had some brilliant reviews.

Sadly, unless the last headliner is amazing, that's probably the nail in the coffin for me this year. Which is a shame as it would have been my 10th consecutive year.

I've never got Kreator, King 810 can do one, and never heard anything by the last two

Very underwhelming

Happy with Kreator, usually couldn't give a monkey's about Sophie stage bands anyway so no real surprise there, but King 810 are god-awful. Disappointed that this chest-beating, attention-seeking fake nonsense has taken up a mainstage slot.
