That's pretty much the opposite of me. There are literally no main stage bands I want to see on Friday or Saturday. There are a few on Sunday though.


Me too. Those Fri & Sat lineups are woeful for me with only Paradise Lost standing out as a band I'd go out of my way to watch.

i like all the days...tbf this lineup is near perfect for me with a good mix of bands i love and bands i havent seen yet but wanna. a few on the bill i dont care for but thats beer drinking time , which is just as important as the bands so glad there are a few duds on the bill *cough butcher babies cough*. torn between sat and sunday as best days. sat has more bands i like but the sunday the bands that i do like i love.
feel i should like acid reign but just cant get into them dont know why, any recomendations ?

For me Sunday is looking excellent, a few bands I fancy on Friday, but Saturday has slim pickings for me at the moment, with the exception of Paradise Lost and Vio-lence. I'm trying to train myself to like Behemoth, but failing.

Plenty of other things to do on Saturday though, particularly the previously mentioned beer drinking time.

Friday is pretty decent for me and Sunday is excellent. Saturday is slim pickings, Behemoth and Sylosis are my only main stage bands. Cattle Decapitation and Ramage Inc on Sophie stage add a couple more but still not great. Saturday will be a mix of VIP bar/Lemmy's bar and the New Blood stage.

I'm a bit of a stat nerd, so far my average rating of the bands I've listened to is 5.9/10. That breaks down to:
- 10 bands I'll actively avoid (rated <5)
- 12 I'll stop to watch if I'm not in a rush to get somewhere else (rated 5-6)
- 17 which I'll actively try to see (rated 7-8)
- 2 which I'm guaranteed to be present for (rated 9-10)

That gives me:
- 2 bands to listen to on Thursday
- 9 on Friday
- 11 on Saturday
- 9 on Sunday
Or
- 17 to watch on the RDJ stage
- 14 to watch on the Sophie stage.

Not a bad weekend by any stretch of the imagination. Especially compared with last year, where the average was down at 5.2 once all bands were accounted for (49 <5 bands; 42 5-6; 23 7-8; 5 9-10).

My girlfriend wishes I was this organised for our family holidays. :lol:

I think I'm on 6 I'm aiming for at the moment so hopefully make some nice discoveries.. and catch up on my reading :)

(Last year I had 6 a day at this point, so far it's Devin, Priest, Skindred, Paradise Lost, Unleash the Archers, Bloodywood and Diamond Head. There would be Nekrogoblikon but reckon will arrive Friday )

I don't know why I even bother checking these announcements any more - 6 more bands, 6 more that most folk won't have even heard of. They might as well just rename the Sophie Stage "New Blood Stage 2" at this rate.

What a bottom-of-the-barrel-scraping lineup this has turned out to be.

Lost all hope this year, I can see people liking Blasphemer but the rest is utter drivel :(

I've been saying this for years.
