I'd love them to do what Wacken did that one year and just do the entire lineup in one go. Or at least the mainstage. Can't see it happening though, they probably like the exposure that constant band announcements bring.
Personally I'd guess Priest. They've openly been trying to get them for a while (if they'd announced anything else last year it would have been a disappointment for so many), and I think they'd make a big deal if they did get them. I wouldn't be shocked by Emperor either, they did make a big deal out of Behemoth the other year, and they were a recent repeat. Maybe announce Priest on the Friday and Emperor on the Sunday as their special guests.
