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'll do my shopping Tuesday evening and pack Wednesday evening.

Next week that is.

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've got a list of stuff that I need put together but it'll probably only start getting bought and packed tuesday.

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.

I think it's a cracking line-up, not knowing stage times I can't say for sure but I've got very few gaps where there isn't anyting I want to see with the Sophie good bitslooking like it'll slot nicely between the RJD good bits. It's just a shame we're finishing with the godawful Slayer on Sunday.

Satan closing two years ago was probably the peak.

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.

Sophie will definately be over-lapping with main, just not for the headline slot.

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.
