Announcement next week then?

CD and maybe Leprous? Add Mercyful Fate to those, and I'll bite for sure.

Just seen the Instagram feed and Vicky put 'trying' when asked about Mercyful Fate, but then again she was positive about every band suggested..

I think they'd already booked this year's headliners by the time MF reached out to festivals, so now they're stuck trying to book them sort of last second without a natural place to put them.

Not in the slightest - how long ago was their last UK gig? The Underworld, bottom of the bill for Metallica? Now somehow equal billing with the likes of Priest, or someone like DT who can fill the Albert Hall? If the likes if Kreator and Testament have never clawed their way to headliner, no way MF have

I never saw them as headliner, rather SG. They're not headlining other festivals, so I still have hope.

Back to the two week cycle or has Vicky said something on social media?

Not to dash your hopes, I just have a nagging doubt because they're subbing much larger festivals (to the likes of Maiden etc) so could headline a smaller fest like BOA; ruling them out :(

I'm just thinking because CD self announced they would want to get it out officially ASAP? who knows though.

I'm still thinking of Mystic Fest if BOA don't get MF, but if BOA gets them I'll likely return.

Unless I've missed something, Skindred, PL and Gloryhammer aren't special guests right? So we still have them to go. Who are people thinking based on tours and such?

I know people want Saxon but with their tour rescheduled I don't know if they are likely to be announced any time soon

The only two bands I want to see so far are on different days, so not even worth a day ticket. Unless the Sophie Headliners are all bands I want to see, it's looking like a no show for me next year.

Sadly, Skindred are specials guests. I asked on her Instagram question thingy the other day

That virtually confirms that the rest of the line up is going to be full of filler nobody wanted as they've spaffed all the budget on one big name headliner again. :rolleyes:

Aren't bands who are 3rd from top called special guests? At least there is the chance that we'll get a decent sub (though not I have much hope in that)

Y`know trying not to be skeptical but I was hoping to be "Wowed" by this 20th anniversary thing
Skindred arent SG material to fit that wow category, but neither were Cannibal Corpse or At the Gates
I can accept that DT and Behemoth are on the rise in popularity and making new headliners needs to happen at some stage
Saxon or say Accept as a SG is win/win/win they dont do bad, they are legends, we all know a couple of songs at least. Similarly massive call for KD/MF, your fans are telling you something dearie, they arent asked for Hatebreed or Whitechapel.
