I've Download Festival, Le Mans, Ministry, a holiday, some weekends sailing, before Bloodstock week that starts with Maiden. I'm hoping for a pair of decent local gigs for the Tuesday and Wednesday to turn it into a proper week of fun.

Quite a drought for me for metal between Download and Bloodstock.

Same. Usually we do a festival on the mainland in June/July, but we did gigs in Germany and Holland earlier in the year instead so there's a big old gap until more holiday fun.

Le Mans - nice!

I was booked to go in 2003 but we found out my wife was pregnant and would have been too far on to travel. One day I will get there (been to several European F1 races but Le Mans would be something special)

I had saved up holiday time and cash to take the family backpacking across Japan but then the school scuppered them finishing early after they did their AS exams. The kids wouldn't go anywhere over Easter/Whitsun due to existing school trips/exams and refused what I could afford in the summer holiday (as I'm keeping cash back for next year), so I had time and money to spend on me instead, so I did!

We'll go next year instead when they have fully finished their A levels (can't afford it during school holidays) so I'm quite not that mean. We did Tokyo down to Hiroshima last time after their GCSEs, this time it'll be bits of Kyushu down to Okinawa.

Le Mans should be awesome, but I have wussed out for a private campsite.

Just heard that Mantas has had a double heart bypass. He is at home resting now, but I guess that throws Venom Inc's appearance into some doubt. Obviously a speedy recovery is what I am hoping for, but it's very sad to hear he's been through this.

That would be a bit of a bugger if they pulled out but health comes first.

I saw the Mantas news last night very shocking but I hope he can recover fully. Real shame if Venom Inc cannot make it as their last album is a cracker. Much the better of the two Venom's in my opinion.

The French aren't very good at time keeping, plus you have to allow for the traditional long lunch.

Weather wise I'd settle for dry but I'm hoping for hot and sunny.

Im thinking tomorrow.

With the M2TM finals in full swing im expecting 1 every 2 weeks until mid July and dont think DL will be a factor given they are no longer announcing big ticket selling bands
