Thursday: DJ C'HUNKS
Friday: FEEDBACK CLUB NIGHT (could this be related to the new Feedback Radio station?)
Saturday: DJ SPOONICUS
Sunday: DJ ASHA

All in the Sophie stage, nothing listed in Hobgoblin atm (beyond the announced bands) so don't know if there's gonna be movies or anything.


New Blood stage will have movies again:

Wayne’s World 2 19:00 Thurs
Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey 21:00 Thurs
Conan 22:30 Fri
Dusk ‘Til Dawn 22:30 Sat

I can't fathom out the concept of attending a music festival and watching TV....

Mercyful Fate are reuniting for some 2020 European Festival shows, could be a headliner to look out for.

They're already announced for Copenhell. I wonder if we'll get them as an announcement over the weekend - could see them being 'Special Guest' sized.

If they're a special guest I'd like to see them get an extended set like Avantasia in 2013.

I'm starting to think all 3 special guests will be announced at the festival. Saxon, Accept and now Mercyful Fate

Or make that the top 3 for one day

Headliner: MF
sub: Accept
3rd: Saxon

Probably end up with a bunch of shit lower down the bill but what a way to end a day
