Someone on the FB page is saying that it's been leaked that it will be BFMV, I'll wait and see before shaking my head in dispair.

It could well be.

But he hasn't got a source. He says the playlist, but the playlists don't get posted until after the show.

Most recent playlist.

I don't listen to the radio so what time roughly are we expecting all hell to break loose on here?

That's why I said I'd wait till it's announced officially. I've had this feeling it could be them since they were announce for Wacken and the way BOA looks like it's going, I just hope it isn't.

It definitely wont be BFMV or Asking Alexandria. Their stars have fallen considerably since metalcore has been slowly dropping off the radar.

The real worry should be that Five Finger Death Punch get booked as headliner.

By mainstream standards it has, like Trivium they're now the right size for BOA unfortunately. If they hadn't fallen in popularity they would be in the frame for DL or Soni.

To be honest they've never been a band that has even been on my radar. The only thing I know about them is they are/were popular with kids with dodgy fringes. :lol:

Which in turn means they are guaranteed to be shit.

If the bookers had any sense at all they would announce one of Judas Priest/Twisted Sister/King Diamond today just to stick 2 fingers up at everyone for being so negative.They could then announce the other two inevitably shit headliners another day on the tide of goodwill already created and nobody would care so much.

Well spotted. In my defence I think my brain went into meltdown at the prospect of Five Finger Death Punch and Korn appearing.
