Probably the same ones as me then. I've never heard of
Avslut
Craft
Infest
Interment
Kjeld
Liquid Shit
Malthusian
Scordatura

The price of tickets for this and that Cosmic Void one are far too high. I'd rather pay £20 for a band or two I really want to see plus a couple of unknown supports, than cough up £100 and run the risk of the big name headliner pulling out a week before the show. There's no money back for a festival no-show unless the event itself is cancelled.

Also if Eradication can pack a solid two day bill for £30, I don't see how this lineup is that much better.

Be a shame to have it fold after the first year though.


Most of the best fests I've been to have been poorly attended; the lack of people mean I get space, can move around easily, not worry about getting in or getting a good view, get to meet the bands and there are no queues :lol: Don't want it to fold but if it's poorly attended it won't be the worst thing for me :eyes:

Autopsy being added just bumped this up a few notches for me :D

I know you like a bit of Lik like me. :lol:

Entrails, Lik and wolfsbrigade are excellent addictions and I haven't seen any of them before. This fest has actually booked bands that don't play over here much if at all, unlike other fests.

More bands I like than dislike so should have a decent weekend :D

Between this and Incineration I'll be able to tick off quite a few boxes :lol:

Are you going to travel in each day or staying somewhere? Think I'll just get a day ticket (nearer the time because of coronavirus) because I can't be arsed to travel both days.

Got a free cancellation hotel nearby so I can decide nearer the time :lol:
If you're that worried then I would suggest cutting down on the travel, that'll be the biggest hotspot as it's in a confined area.

I'm not that worried because the chances are so small. Saying that I do have a young child, a wife with bad asthma and live with elderly relatives so getting it would be f**king awful. I just feel like events may get cancelled.

Shame but inevitable. Gonna hold on to my ticket until next year. :yes: The plus side of all these postponements is that I'll basically have no tickets to pay out for next year! :lol:

Yeah if people are lucky enough to still be in their jobs then this lockdown is like being forced to save money. :lol:
