Savage Messiah will do. Much more preferable to the alternatives that I was thinking would be announced.


I was referring to the organisers' post on this forum about the announcement - the word 'HUGE' was used which I felt was a tad over the top considering the content.

I think refers to size, over 20 bands announced, that's pretty big.

We all know what they are like at hyping things up.

Besides we knew most of the bands already. It was just the last mainstage slot we were bothered about.

Who were you thinking of?
Not sure if I've heard Savage Messiah or not, I'll have a look


The usual suspects of Beholder, Dripback and Evile. Or a band that seems to play on every tour imaginable such as Winterfylleth.

Standard advertising, hype something up regardless of content to get attention. Nothing new or BOA specific.

Until a 2016 forum is created, it's probably worth re-appropriating this thread for 2016 related announcement news/guesswork.

I suspect we'll get a headliner in early to mid-September, based on last year. Who do you think we'll get first?

I think we'll get a larger set of lower mainstage bands (3 or 4 bands) in September, then the first headliner in October. Who it'll be I'm not sure, but I'm fairly sure they'll throw a controversial name in early as well as some older favourites.
