Do people really believe it is close to selling out? I'm looking forward to it as ever but take way the headliners and the line up isn't exactly likely to appeal to many DL regulars!

Down to the last couple hundred of weekend tickets now according to Facebook. I guess time will tell...

Ward XVI just posted that they'll be on at 12 on the Saturday. Unless they're running the New Blood later this year, that probably means the order on the line up page doesn't reflect running order.

Personally I'm hoping the sell out statements are false, quite like having more room to myself both in the campsite and in the arena

Makes me glad I am in VIP as their ticket numbers weren't increased from last year and there was decent room to pitch my tent.

Same here actually :lol: Although hopefully the addition of another campsite means it won't affect us too much! I actually recall there being quite a lot of space in Midgaard over the weekend last year. That was just from walking through there to get to Hel though.

Hmm, just did a quick google of Bearded Theory and wikipedia says it only has a capacity of 5,000. Not sure how true that it is though.



Don't believe anything on Wikipedia....


No idea about how big Bearded Theory is. But it seems like it's got a lot of things like campervans and caravans on site.

But it seems like a bit more that 5000. Even in the daylight rather than headliners. These are old photos from a few years ago.

I have just seen that profile pic too. I have put a post up zuggesting that either it means the running order is wrong (which, to be fair, has happened in the past, particularly with NB) or that the stage is starting later. I will see if they reply. I know that, as of yesterday (possibly day before) Ba'al were yet to have their time confirmed and that bands were told they would know by end of July.

Ward XVI just replied. They haven't had their official times and had just gone off someobe's unofficial clashfinder.

Would be nice though if they chopped off the first set of the day and added it to the end. but I've been saying that for YEARS!

Look at all those costumes! :lol: The arena looks like it's smaller or just has more stuff in it, or both.

That'd make the comedy hour clash with the main headliner though, MegaDave wouldn't like that.


Err, no it wouldn't.

It would mean the New Blood closes at 2045, rather than 2000 like it does now. Headliners start at 2100. It would also mean an extra 15 minutes in bed of a morning!

I'd simliarly love to go back to the Sophie finishing at the same time or earlier than the RJD. TBF, 1030-2300 is a bloody long day to be in the arena, and the car park is too far away to just pop back to teh car if you want a rest.

10:30 am till 11:00 pm aint that bad, I've done the whole 11:am till 3:00 am at Wacken many times, then driven back to the hotel.

Yeah it always annoyed me that bands finish so early. If Sophie went on til 2 or 3 like most European festivals they could get some more really good bands in. That way bands that make no sense to be on at 1pm like Agalloch, 1349, Belphegor etc could play at a more appropriate time

UK sound laws are pretty shit, so it won't happen.
