My 3 must see bands so far are TS, Anthrax and Acid Reign. I'm hopeful Acid Reign will clash with Mastodon so I can avoid Mastodon.

For me they are the perfect alternative to Slayer so Sunday is great for me. A Twisted Sister/Goatwhore clash would be the worst possible.


This. I'm not sure I even like any other bands than these 2 so far.

Doesn't this normally happen? Bands moving on the line up poster or disappearing. The PR said Friday headliner and word from anywhere about them moving so I'd guess they are still on Friday

Vicky told someone on Twitter that the next announcement is next week.

She has also said they've just booked the Friday Sophie headliner, Firstly that means Goatwhore must now be on the Sunday, and secondly there is a chance the Friday headliner might be announced next week.

Solstafir have started announcing festival dates in August, so am hoping for them. Would go down a storm in the tent

Why is everyone thinking that headliners will clash? I'm pretty sure they didn't this year, or at most overlapped by a few minutes?

EDIT: In fact they only overlapped by fifteen minutes

I'm a bit annoyed at Goatwhore moving to Sunday, I was looking at shooting off just before Anthrax. Now ill be sticking around until the end.

Goatwhore on Sunday is good for me, finishing on a band I want to see (though Satan closing the fest 2 years ago was amazing and can't see it being topped).

Good excuse for me to look up some new bands :)

Goatwhore on Sunday is better for me, no way they could follow TS for me but having seen Slayer a few times in the last few years I could happily pull myself a way a bit earlier to get a good spot for GW

I would have been nice to have an alternative to Slayer that could sing. They made much more sense as an alternative to Twisted Sister. Never mind. There's always the bar!

Last year there was a bigger overlap with the band under the headliner on Sophie so something good under Goatwhore to oppose the utter shite that is Slayer would be most welcome.

Along with XII Bore. If this turns out to be true it'll be an utterly shit announcement for me, would seem that a lot people are going to be happy with CoC though even.

Yep. I'd go as far as to say it's an actively abysmal booking. Dull and predictable.
