I mean, it's literally less than £7. If you're free that weekend and want access to a mixture of lockdown sets and some old festival performance footage from a dozen festivals, then it's less than the cost of 2 festival pints.

I'm hoping we get a few bands have a change of plans between now and then, it is over a year away after all. I imagine we'll have at least one band pull out - it will probably end up being one of the few I actually like though.

Or it will be some shit metalcore band like Sylosis or Bury Tomorrow who end up getting replaced by someone equally as shit. Just looked at the line-up again to refresh my memory and it really is fucking dire. I've attended every BOA consistently since 2010 and this will be the first time I just get a day ticket. The drop-off in the quality of the under-card since 2010 is astounding.

Amon Amarth would be my guess

Certainly would. And it would make up for the organisers dropping the ball so badly on them this year but I'm not holding out much hope.

Ironically the weather for this weekend when the festival should have been taking place is high 20.s and no rain. Sure it will be pissing down next year lol. I should have been over for Alcatraz where the weather is due to be 34 every day, not sure I could have coped with that heat!

The met Office forecast looks depressingly good. No rain, mid twenties during the day, well in to double figures over night. Pretty much perfect festival weather :(
