HellFest 2019

Postby Soze » Mon Jun 25, 2018 10:03 am

First bunch of bands announced already - Manowar, Slayer (last ever performance in France, presumably the same for Manowar), Carcass, Dropkick Murphys and Mass Hysteria ( :? ).

I might toddle along.

Means I'll have to renew my passport, but I was waiting for a proper one. :|

Not missing much. They're a Froggy Nu Metal/Industrial band.

I thought this winter was meant to be slayers farewell tour?!

No doubt they’ll be playing every single summer fest next year also as a farewell show only for them to go quiet for a few years and re appear somewhere down the line. Clever marketing from their management

I read somewhere that Slayer have signed some sort of agreement that they're not allowed to reform / tour for at least 5 years after finishing this run of dates. I wouldn't be surprised if that's something Tom Araya put in to ensure he wouldn't be hassled again for a while! I'm fairly confident that Slayer are genuine about this retirement lark, Tom has been saying for a while that he's bored of touring and doesn't enjoy it as much anymore. He seemed keen to knock it on the head after Jeff died tbh. I suspect Kerry King will stay active, probably record something with a bunch of other people...Anselmo seems likely...and obviously Holt will go back to Exodus. Bostaph won't be short of offers.

Oh God, the blue passport, I must renew mine before then, hang on to the memory of this country before it went mental!

This or Graspop? Lot of overlap for this year's event, do we think it'll be the same next year? Graspop has that extra day...

Done Hellfest lots, but did Graspop for variety last year, and having gone back to Hellfest this year, I can safely say Hellfest wipes the floor with Graspop.

Hellfest was a complete stunner this year, totally there next year.

But you did make it up. There hasn't been any confirmation where the passports (French name BTW) will actually be made. All that has happened is one foreign company lost the contract to another.

They can be made in Timbuktu for all I care. I'm just glad were are getting out of that failed Socialist experiment.

The Red is not the correct colour for you.

De La Rue lost the contract and the government chose an alternative provider based in mainland Europe. Now they could still change their mind again sure, but at the moment it does appear that they will be made abroad.

I agree it's a minor point but I was simply pointing out the comedic irony.

As for the EU being a "failed socialist experiment", that actually depends on your point of view. The Euro could be viewed that way, but there's a lot to the argument that rather than being any kind of 'socialist' super-state, the EU is actually just a protectionist, capitalist sock for corporations to collectively wank into.
As you can probably tell, I'm not the biggest fan of the EU as an institution but I would have rather stayed as I felt the benefits of staying outweighed the potential benefits of leaving and the leave arguments just didn't seem to be backed up by enough facts for my liking.

At this point, it's more the way it's being handled by these inept bumblefucks that I take issue with, rather than the thought of leaving. It's been (and continues to be) an utter clusterfuck.

The EU isn't socialist. It is/was trying to make quite a bit of (re)nationalisation illegal! Imo that's why Corbyn isn't a big fan.
