If not Vio-Lence, I'm holding out for Destruction on the main stage if they can be squeezed in.

I am personally hoping for at least Equillibrium for one of remaining main stage slots as they're playing other summer fests this year.


They're on HRH Metal in Feb so I think the chances are remote. I'm sure they would have announced by now if they were planning on playing.

Raised by owls, psychostick, Valafar all for the sophie stage. Baroness for main stage would be good too. i know its not gonna happen but overkill on the main stage would be amazing!

I'm guessing another 3-5 Sophie bands.

At what time last year did they announce the rest of the Thursday night bill?

Speaking of the Thursday, I hope they keep to the booking principle of the opening band being a New Blood band that did well the year before. HYOM absolutely killed it (and had a massive crowd too!). Along those lines, someone like Luna's Call the kick off the entire festival would be really sweet.

It's only happened two years in a row so far, with Ramage Inc and Hundred Year Old Man. Could be a pattern, could just be a fluke. I actually hope it is a thing.

Agreed on Sellsword as well- saw them a couple of months back and they were brilliant. Them, Luna's Call, Underdark, Kilonova, Pelugion or Servers would all be good shouts I think.

I know more of the Sophie stage bands than the 2 main stage ones (never heard of either).

Sophie stage is looking decent, Thursday looks good!
