That's a shame, was interested to see their set.

I wonder what they'll do about that slot? I personally wouldn't mind Queensrÿche and Dee Snider both playing for slightly longer to make up for Dimmu not being there.

Beyond gutted about this. Pretty much the band I was looking forward to the most. Really hope they're invited back next year but I have a feeling the special guests are already booked

Balls. That's one of my favourite bands this weekend. :(

Still, if they have to pull out for medical reasons, that's understandable.

Thinking about it, I doubt they'll move bands around -- lanyards will be printed now (presumably), and rather than reprinting Sunday's page and manually swapping them out (doable, but time consuming and expensive), it'd be easier to get a band in to replace them, and just make it known that Dimmu's slot has been filled by band X. They can do that on the big screens on the mainstage between bands, and have signs up at the arena entrance etc.

The difficult thing will be finding a band that's willing to travel down at such short notice.

I saw that in the announcement too but I can't see them being able to find such a big name at such short notice. Can see them bumping Queensryche up and adding a smaller band earlier on in the day

Was looking forward to them, hopefully the replacement is good whoever it may be.
