If they announce Korn and Limp Bizkit they will need a larger server as the forum will go into meltdown!

That sounds tasty as fuck! Hopefully we get something like this.

I think they should have that headline over Korn and LB. Announce Korn and LB for the festival but have them pull out before the fest so they don't actually play, and just have a montage of all the comments on FB and forums over the screens with a decent soundtrack (not the 4 DJ's) while you get to put your feet up with popcorn and some beers

Tour's in December. Imagine waiting all that time for that headliner then getting Korn and LB, the shit storm on here would be amazing :lol:


Haha especially after roc roc memberships have been sold. To be honest the way the fest has been going I'd say Korn aren't beyond the realms of possibility!

I can't believe that anyone would actually want Korn. Saw them years ago and they were terrible. :lol:

I've heard rumours of the headliners. Expect three recent repeats....

Easy to work out as there isn't anything that hasn't been rumoured already.

Lets just say that we're going to party like it's 201.... :P

With the proviso that last years main headliners had a three year gap.

To be fair looking at some of the European festivals none really spark my interest much, seems it might be a lean year all round; which is going to be interesting if any go under as a result...

Lol I'm usually at the alternatives on the Sophie stage, the campsite or the bar at that time. Would give Emperor and Amon another go though.

So Megadeth, Emperor and Amon instead of Down?

I've already got tickets for four festivals for next year without even thinking about Bloodstock.

I think the problem for many people is going to be booking time off if they leave it too long. Quite a few people have to book it up to a year in advance. We're not all still in school. :lol:

Would actually be very good for me, either way I hope Megadeth do some UK shows next year anyway :yes:

Yeah I'd be ok with it too, it may not be the most exciting or original, but I think I'd actually watch all 3 for once! I'm sure they'll do something, they haven't been about for awhile have they?

They did a small Arena run in 2015 before Dystopia was released and DL this year, they haven't done an extensive UK tour since United Abominations though ('07 I think?). Considering how festivals are shaping up next year I'd take a good but unoriginal line up over a weak but fairly original mix of bands

Oh god I think I'd kill myself. Mostly because of Megadeth than the other two, but that would be so uninspired. Fuck, I'd almost rather Machine Head or someone if you are going for recent(ish) repeats.

Headliners don't make a festival though and if the undercard was decent I guess it would be ok. Still, that would be incredibly lazy.

Megadeth would be the one I'd be most happy with :lol:

if it is going to be a mix of "recent" repeats I hope it's along the lines of:
Megadeth- Alice Cooper- King Diamond

That would be my best case scenario
