That kind of logic could be applied to lots of reasonably sized metal bands though.
The simple fact is that it's mental that popular bands like Unleash The Archers and Winterfylleth are mid Sophie stage, and stuff like Savage Master, Svalbard and Conjurer is finding its way onto the main stage.
Oh I agree. But subheadlining the Sophie Stage (the slot it looks like they've got) is probably about where they would be/should be on another year. Its only the terribly small bands they've booked in other slots that makes that seem a problem.
So does anyone expect the festival to get cancelled? What with so many other festivals getting cancelled/scaling back, I wouldn't be shocked if it happens. It might even be a good thing, not to inflict this lineup on the world.
