Twisted Sister are just starting to announce their dates for 2016. Could they be one of this year's headliners? I really hope so. Only announced Graspop in June so far, but as all 3 headliners are already booked it wouldn't be too much of a stretch to imagine Twisted Sister being one of them.

I hate FFDP so fucking much
The singer is such a typical American 'im 'ard i'll hit the security people' prick
And their music has never done anything for me
I was stood in the midst of a pit at download for them amd was bored our of my mind
I sincerly hope they don't get to headline anything

I've never even heard them and I've only vaguely heard of them. :lol:

Rest assured that you haven't missed out on anything. They're unadulterated shit. On a stick.

I'd take BFMV over 5FP any day of the week.

I reckon it's a toss up between Arch Enemy and FFDP at this point.

That comment can be read very diffferently than what was meant. :lol:

I'd be surprised if Arch Enemy were special guests, let alone headlining

Skippy wrote:I dunno the whole Ghost thing is just baffling to me. Last time I saw them they supported Alice in Chains, and I know they are bigger now, but without a long term history to draw from, or a rarity factor along the lines of Emperor or King Diamond I just can't see it. Volbeat seem slightly more likely, but even those would probably only get special guests over here.

Fair play man, they've kinda blown up in very little time at all so i definitely get that, but based off of their commercial and current touring success i'd personally stake money on Ghost in terms of size as a very strong special guest slot booking but a soft choice for a headliner.

Just saw that too. Doubt they're the headliner, but I think the festival will be none too pleased that they've leaked that. Seems like something they'd probably want to make a fuss over.

Oops. Nearly as bad as blurting it out in an interview in Terrorizer like somebody did a few years back. :lol:

Happy with Satyricon, although less happy that they'll probably be doing a "Nemesis Divina" set for its 20th anniversary.

I'm happy that they'll actually be playing some of their best material again instead of the toss from the last few albums. I just hope Satyr is well enough to do the dates.

Don't be posting line-ups from the days when it was "Download band" free on your FB page. :P
