I saw Fury play in Manchester on Staurday. New material is EPIC!

Then, over the weekend, I got to the bottom of a pile of boxes, where I found all my route plans/bookings/tickets/etc for BOA. I can put my travel folder together this week!

Just now? I've been excited since Venom was announced last year.

Starting to compile my list of festival essentials, does anybody know if pen knives are allowed at all? Thinking of investing in case there's ever need for a tent repair!

Once I get through this week at work I will get to the weekend and review and pack my rucksack for the final time. Then I just need to practice assembling/collapsing my new tent and I can look forward to finishing at lunchtime on Wed 10th and starting my travels to BOA

People are already packing?! Haven't even started yet, was going to leave it to Saturday.
Haven't even dug my tent out from last year to check if I ripped it trying to fit the poles back into it's bag :eyes:

I'm packing on the evenings of the 9th/10th.
That said, I'm not camping, so less to organise.

I missed last year for the first time ever.........so it will be nice to be back this year.
Seen quite a few posts knocking the line up, which to be fair is a yearly occurrence, but I don't mind it this year.
I used to attend BOA , and the indoor festival, on the strength of 1 maybe 2 bands that I liked!! So anything over that is a bonus for me.
Good to see Symphony X on the bill. I have been putting them down on the wishlist for years!!
Opinions are like arseholes.....everybody has got one.

I'm with you on this, with this year being an excellent lineup for me (Fury, Sumer, GloryHammer, Vektor, WitchSorrow, Diamond Head, & Pythia), plus loads of new stuff for me to check out.

My issue with it is the barren spells, especially with the suggestion of Sophie not overlapping with main. There's some points where I'll just be camp drinking for a few hours.

Yeah sorry that's what I meant, don't really give a toss about the headliners on main stage Sat/Sun so I'll be dossing around for a bit.

Me neither! Need to drag it down from the loft and check it this weekend. I won't pack until Tuesday/Wednesday next week, with the trip to Tescos probably Monday night.
