hmmm, by that logic Evil Scarecrow are ready to headline, as they packed out the field and got bigger crowds than some of the headliners.
Gojira being special guests was a push last year, they're nowhere near headliner level. Back too soon and headline slot is way too big for them.
BOA have booked Nightwish who are a massive headliner, and so big they are almost out of the festival's grasp now, and seem to have offset this by making another band a headliner who will obviously be far cheaper and are nowhere near the headline level yet.
