2018 Clashfinder

Postby kurrupo » Fri Feb 09, 2018 10:11 am

I know it's a bit early for this as the lineup hasn't even been fully announced yet but I've taken it upon myself to update this years' clashfinder after every announcement (I like to start planning early!). I've used educated guesses to judge the positions of the bands and used the times from last year. Obviously it won't be entirely accurate but at least it gives us something to work with. Here's the link:

Thanks for this! Really brings home how little there is for me on Sunday at present.

Saturday is the day which is most barren for me at the moment with only Orden Ogan and Exhorder providing any level of interest.

Indeed...one band for me on Saturday (Venom inc.) and two on Sunday (At the Gates and Watain). Friday isn't so bad though.

Friday is pretty damn decent for me, Saturday not so great and Sunday is a write off apart from ATG.

2018 may be the year I spend more of the weekend watching bands on the lower stages than on the main stage.

Saturday is my quietest atm with just Septic Flesh and Venom Inc interesting me.

Friday is by far the best day atm

Friday, just like last year, is looking very weak for me. Tempted to save 2 days of holiday at the moment and show up in the evening, start my festival on Saturday, although it would be a shame to miss Kamelot.

There's still plenty of space left though, and they might announce a stonking Thursday night like they did last year.

When I look at it on the clashfinder, this year is certainly the weakest since I've been going to BOA. Just have to hope they book some decent acts in the lower spots

I thought they were but the news post doesn't say anything about them being special guests.

I swear I read somewhere that they were. Maybe there's been a change of plan, but I'll leave it as it is for now and change it in due course

I have to leave after at the gates so I am hoping they are not. They sound good.

Don't think they've ever used the term special guests for Sophie bands.
