Pretty happy with Power Trip. At least there's no Code Orange. Never heard of the rest of them.

Only A Forest Of Stars of real interest.

The rest is just filler.

Power Trip and A Forest of Stars are both good and Bio-Cancer might be worth checking out. Quite happy with this announcement. Three who are of interest.

So, currently 75 minutes after the announcement and nothing on the forum yet. Place your bets. How long do we think it'll be before they can be bothered to announce it here?

Obligatory comment: literally nothing for me in today's announcement.

Good announcement for me. Power Trip a no brainer but A Forest of Stars and Conjurer are great additions too. Heard good things about Alien Weaponry so will check them out, not heard of the other two but I am pleased with this one.

Not bad. Pleased with Power Trip, and after updating the clashfinder some of the new 2nd stage placements have helped to remove some potential clashes. Still wondering who's going to headline Thursday though

Ahhh, I was being lazy and going by the time on your post above, which implied the announcement was at 10:00. But no, it was just the forum not using daylight saving time. Either way, 20 minutes is still too long. Can you imagine the reaction if they announced things here first and waited 20 minutes before posting it to Facebook and Twitter?

Quite shit for me. I like Forest of Stars and I don't mind Conjurer, but the rest is really shit. The Sunday in particular is looking pretty bad on the Sophie.

Couple of decent ones there, AFOS and PT. I was already sold though.

I would love the last big-ish band to be iced earth.

Pretty good announcement for me

A Forest of Stars and Power Trip are both decent for me and after having a listen on Spotify I will be giving both Forgotten Remains and Alien Weaponry a go at the festival

I really like this part of the announcements as its where I start finding a load of stuff I like but never heard of

Conjurer and A Forest of Stars are both fantastic. Not heard of any of the others, seems most of them are thrash though, so I'll probably like them.
