As a general rule we know they'll announce all the bands before next years festival.

Goodness me, let's hope not, else they might actually manage to top Trivium as the worst possible choice of headliner.

Glad you think so too. I have a horrible feeling BFMV and Parkway Drive will be announced.

If your looking at Wacken bands, fucking Blind Guardian. They are the best choice.

Although I fully expect us to get some shitty headliner like BFMV. Them, Bring Me or Disturbed seem the most likely as they are touring. Can't help but think Bullet would be the weakest, if only because they are over here all the time. Parkway Drive can just fuck off in general.

Is it next Tuesday for the first announcement? They did a Facebook post about announcements coming really soon the other day so I'm assuming next week, but I guess it could be any time within the next month.

Apart from one or two exceptions, that's dire. And I don't think Ihsahn or Entombed will play so soon.

I'm half expecting Arch Enemy to turn up though seeing as they told me they were playing this year. :lol:

Only Alcest out of that lot please! Abysmal Wacken lineup so far, and would really hate for arch enemy to be booked.

Could be a lot worse than Arch Enemy, it could be Parkway Drive. *shudder*

I'd be alright with Arch enemy, but only co headliner like in 09, not full headline.

Who would be more likely out of BFMV, Disturbed, Parkway Drive or Five Finger Death Punch in everyone's general opinion? They all seem to be possible, personally I think we're more likely to get 5FDP
