Vote for your favourite 10 albums of 2018, in no particular order and those with the most votes will go to a second round in the new year to decide the forum's favourite albums of the year.

Good lord I hope not. What a snooze-fest that would be.

I could imagine either of them playing the Sunday classic slot, but not headlining.
Saturday headliners are either going to be Parkway Drive or someone we aren't expecting.
I can see a band like Zeal and Ardor playing, they played Download this year.

Boo that's a shame. I feel like considering they were in the country around the time of this years festival this was the year for them. Oh well.

Out of interest what other bands were mentioned?

Ugly Kid Joe, While She Sleeps, Manowar, King 810, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Alice Cooper are names she mentioned that she has either tried to book, would welcome back or is interested in. Also said more Death and grindcore for 2020. Said she wants to open her own gym.

These are the bands Vicky said she would consider booking, re-booking or has tried to book from what I saw on the ask me anything:

- Parkway Drive
- Clutch
- Zeal & Ardor
- Trivium
- Rob Zombie
- Bodycount
- King 810
- Alice Cooper
- Ghost
- While She Sleeps
- Fleshgod Apocalypse
- Manowar
- Ugly Kid Joe
- Batushka
- Powerwolf
- Municipal Waste

Rammstein were confirmed as too big which we knew already. I think a few more bands were asked about but I'm just going by the story that's up on Instagram at the moment and from memory as the first story has disappeared.

Yes I'm aware, I did say as a non headliner. There are still plenty of spaces there for decent bands

.


So from that we can glean:

- Trivium, R Zombie, 810 went over well enough in their eyes to warrant rebooking (guess the bar is pretty low there) and 3-4 years is a long enough gap to rebook headliners
- Parkway are certainly a possibility this year
- A two year gap is long enough gap to rebook bands
