for "must see" bands, I am looking at 2:2:2 with maybe 6 additional bands I would watch across the weekend. Not looking good this year :(

I dunno, I think there will be another biggish band on the Saturday between Alestorm and Combichrist, and possibly on the Sunday between Devildriver and Mr Big. I expect one of them will be either Exodus or Sepultura.


I was thinking of bands going in those slots myself. I'm unsure if it'll happen though as that would mean Amaranthe and Orden Ogan would be the second bands on the stage and I have no idea if they're too big for that slot.

I'm not an Exodus fan but I can imagine that a Thursday Sophie headline set from them would be great fun. Continuing in that vein, how about Sepultura for that slot?

WTF? :?

Exodus with Zetro would be fourth from top at the very least. They were even that high with Dukes singing.

The line up for me this year is the best it's been in a while.

For me, I'm most excited for Nightwish (favourite band), Kamelot (been requesting them for ages), Doro, Judas Preist, Orden Ogan, Alestorm, Amaranthe & Wednesday 13. I've also not seen or heard much of Orphaned Land so I'm looking forward to giving them a go.

I'm looking forward to the next announcements but not holding my breath that it'll be anyone I've heard of.

Steven Tyler has a show in Kentish Town on August 7th. Perhaps he'll headline Sophie on Thursday night. :P

It'll be tough for him to do that from Germany.

I wouldn't mind Andrew W.K. being announced for the Thursday after his UK dates in April, party hard!

When do you think we might see another announcement? With the bands that are left there can't be much preventing it.

At this point its normally an announcement every 2 - 3 weeks
