The dividing line seems to be those that discovered bands through Metallica's Garage Inc and those who knew the band prior to that. We're at a disadvantage of ya know, not being alive when they were around at the start

I hope not, that'll be my budgeting out the window having to fit in a trip up to Scotland at short notice
Also, wouldn't Vio-lence and Sacred Reich would be higher up the bill for similar reasons you mentioned? Especially with Vio-lence playing their first UK show ever.
Happy to be proven otherwise though
Sacred Reich have toured over here a few times in recent years so the bookers can see how well they draw, given the size of the tours (as much as I'd like to see them get a good slot) they're suited further down the stage.
Vio-lence are harder to pin down because you can only go off projections really; I'm a big fan but they're only really known for being Rob Flynn's band before Machine Head to most people. The "blew all the money on the headliners" might see them nab a higher slot, personally I think they'll be 4th or 5th from top.
