PRIEST!!!! CLASS.....and there I was thinking of not going!!! Best headliner for a long time. Makes up plus some more for the other 2 crap announcements.

Delighted with this announcement as the other 2 headliners do nothing for me.

Two outta three headliners ain't bad, and not had the chance to see Priest before so very happy :yes: Hoping the undercard is strong too!

Never thought I actually see Priest booked, so pleased I was wrong.

Both JP and nightwish are top headliners for me. So, as long as I get at least 1 band to look forward to on the sat, I'll be going next year! (shouldn't be too hard- I like lots of metal!)

Good for the festival and a fair few on here, I'm hoping for a good undercard as I can't stand any of these headliners, I wonder when we will get some more bands announced?

All three headliners are great for me. I'm all prepared for a crap undercard now.

Just Nightwish from the headliners for me then, Priest is a great booking, just not one I'm interested in. Hopefully they haven't blown the whole budget, because I can't imagine either Priest or Nightwish were cheap. I'm a bit surprised with the days too, I would have expected Gojira, Nightwish, Priest for Fri, Sat, Sun, but I guess touring commitments probably control how much you can do with the order.

Surely the capacity been increased will of set at least some of the cost. That and the fact that Gojira where (probably) a very cheep headliner.

Unless you've already bought a ticket then just sit back and enjoy it while it lasts. Until they announce other bands when it'll then inevitably start going south this is the high point :lol:

Perhaps Judas Priest aren't as expensive as we all thought they are.
