Bands with a rating of less than 5 is a miss, 5 is a maybe, and more than 5 is a watch (barring conflicts).

I have the same info in i0th's clashfinder here: https://clashfinder.com/s/mjboa2017/?user=WorMzy

I'm slowly checking out the bands I've not listened to and rating them accordingly.

Thursday - getting to Lichfield 3-ish, hopefully set up by 4, then watch everyone in the tent, most interested in Battle Beast and Winter Rose

Friday - hmmm, that main stage is a bit shit to start with, may watch Devilment, Soilwork and Decapitated, but hardly like any of them that much - other stages to be check out! Amon Amarth, Blind Guardian and Testament are definites, but haven't really heard of much on the other stages, hopefully I can piece together a fun day from some bands I haven't heard of to make up for the crap first 6 bands on the main stage.

Saturday - Kreator, Ghost, Annihilator, Havok, Winterfylleth, Xentrix, Red Rum, Kroh, Dakesis, Ba'al....day should be pretty full

Sunday - Megadeth, Hell, Obituary, Possessed, Wintersun, Bossk, Arthemis, Wolfheart, Heathen Deity, and hopefully a few more.

Thursday, depends when I get there, probably The Infernal Sea and Battle Beast. Not terribly fussed about any of them.

Friday, the only most sees are Blind Guardian, Testament and Amon Amarth. Will probably watch Inquisition and maybe Devilment. Other than that, will flit about and see what catches my ear.

Saturday, Kreator, Ghost, Municipal Waste are the must sees, will give Macabre a go, will try and squeeze in Xentrix depending on whether they clash with Kreator. Will probably watch Havok, Annihilator and Red Rum but won't lost sleep over missing any of them. I like Winterfylleth but suspect they'll be lost on the main stage (soundwise) so may check out Eradikator.

Sunday, Megadeth, Hell, Possessed are all I'm massively fussed about but will almost certainly watch Obituary and maybe Wintersun if I'm not knackered.

So, around 12-15 bands on my priority list, the top ones being Blind Guardian and Kreator.

I'll answer for both myself and Slev: everyone. We both try and see as many bands as we can over the weekend. He's a bit more dedicated about it than I am, so he usually manages to catch a bit of nearly everyone. I see probably 75% of the bands playing, across all stages. It used to be more, but I'm getting old and don't have the energy to keep switching between stages all weekend any more. That said, my "must see" bands would be:

Battle Beast
Wind Rose
Blind Guardian
Season's End
Dakesis
Megadeth
Dendera
Annihilator
Hanowar

It's a bit disappointing that I only have one main stage band per day, but that's how it goes.
