Id quite like Volbeat and Devin townsend. I love this fest and I always enjoy myself but ive gone and got myself into a situation where I wont get to see many bands that i really love cos they're mostly european and not generally english language bands (not that i speak anything but english).
Would love to see some more japanese bands get a crack, mostly Maximum the hormone and dir en grey (enjoyed the latter at wacken) and would Adore In Extremo getting a slot, not seen em in a good while.
whatever happens I'll be there taking what i can get. Hope Dimmu come back as i was looking forward to finally seeing them.
August 8 - 11, Catton Park, Walton on Trent, Derbyshire
I heard the Judas Priest rumour as well. But I think it's for the year after rather than next year.

Think there's a good chance Epica'll and/or Arch Enemy will be back as the token female-fronted mainstage band (AE played in 2017 though, so might be too soon for them). Hoping we'll get one or more of the following: Korpiklaani, Ensiferum, Finntroll, Moonsorrow. Oh, and an appearance by Kalmah is pretty much guaranteed, of course.
