I certainly can't disagree with the criticism of the current Saturday line-up! There is still plenty of time for it to improve though, with a headliner still to be announced.

Each to their own, personally I see bands that I will enjoy on Saturday. Plus there's loads more to be announced of course.... When's the next announcement!!!

Just been browsing a few European festival line ups and I've compiled a list of potential final headliner bands. Although the fact they haven't been announced yet probably means it's none of these :lol: Any thoughts/additions?

Anthrax
Disturbed
King Diamond
Lamb of God
Trivium
In Flames
Bullet for my Valentine (probably too divisive for BOA :lol: )
Dream Theater
Dimmu Borgir
Parkway Drive
Opeth

Very kind of you to post the Download line up....

Do we reckon we'll get one more announcement prior to the early birds going off sale?

I can see one more announcement before the 15th with a special guest or two, then the final headliner being announced around new year.

I think the Sat headliner will be either Lamb Of God or Behemoth. I just hope the rest of the bill for that day improves 'cause it's looking pretty poor so far.

HRH Vikings is this weekend, perhaps a couple of bands from that will get announced for BOA next week?

Bring on the next announcement, the line up is already good for me so any more decent announcements is a plus

Regarding HRH Vikings, If they dont announce Saxon then Sellsword would be a good call, great if you like tongue in cheek trad metal

Wouldn't say no to Turisas or Tyr either
