I guess the host venues would require an adult to accompany under 18s as their licences probably wouldn't cover under 18s.

What an odd mix!

Purely a guess, who I suspect the groove / thas band wins, and the sleaze band plays the Jager.

Courtesans is an awesome booking though - was well impressed with them last year.

Same. I bought tickets for the King 810 tour just to seem them again. I felt dirty.

My guess would be for the grindcore band to go through. The only ones I've seen before are Dead Before Mourning and Serpentyne, neither of whom I rate particularly highly. I'm not a fan of Courtesans. Even if you are, I'm astounded that anyone could deem them the band of the festival last year.

Bingo. There were two bands that went through. One were The Brood, the aforementioned grindcore band. The other were Dead Before Mourning, who I'd got as my second choice band, so I'm not too unhappy about that. Personally, I thought Prolapse AD were the best band of the night, and I don't even like thrash that much, but they put on a really good show.
