1st Headliner - Judas Priest

Also confirmed - Accept, Angelus Apatrida, UFO, My Dying Bride, Diamond Head, Unleash the Archers, Reef, Rock Goddess, The New Death Cult, Bullet, Disconnected

Hopefully Mercyful Fate & Nightwish will still be announced otherwise I may have to do Mystic Festival in Poland as well at this rate (don't have any faith in Bloodstock to book either of those two). Undercard is a bit light on power metal too but hopefully that will improve.

Next headliner confirmed - Kiss

Also confirmed: Gotthard, Nile, Bloodbath, Belzebubs, Myrath, Mind Driller, Evil Invaders

Happy with Kiss & Gotthard but the rest of the announcement does nothing for me. Still a bit light on the melodic/power metal side of things for me

Interesting. That's the cartoon black metal band. I wonder if they'll to a Gorillaz style animated show and play behind a screen.

Unfortunately yes. I'm not that surprised at their inclusion as (although Reef are far shitter than these two bands) Thunder and FM have played before and gone down well. It's just that whilst the festival has a few extreme bands on the bill every year, the balance is always far more towards the power/melodic side of things and this year so far isn't quite shaping up that way.
