I don't think it should be people sat in a corner of a room talking or looking bored.
You want a good fun atmosphere, you want recognisable songs that everyone knows and will enjoy, whether they're singing along, dancing or whatever.
A lot of the songs on these lists are terrible choices because people are trying to choose alternative songs to the tried and tested just to be different.
If anyone doesn't know 95% of the songs in my list then they are definitely attending the wrong festival.
Half of the songs I picked were upbeat. I avoided anything slow and morose. Didn't pick any Doom, Black and very little Death. Hell, I even put in dollops of cheese. If you can't flirt and dance to stuff like Motley Crue, Van Halen and Quiet Riot, but can to Pantera then there's something wrong.
Tried and tested? Who by? Just because something works in a small nightclub in some shitty town in Essex doesn't mean it works at a festival.
I've a feeling that Metalicbear may be one of the 4DJOTA, or at least know them. He seems very protective of any criticism.
