Probably on the Sophie stage which has yet to be added.

I can sadly see you being right, with the addition of Amon Amarth as third headliner perhaps? I'd take Amon Amarth and Megadeth although I would be disappointed, as for FFDP please no!!!

All that said I'm still sitting here hoping for Fate :lol:

I don't think Fate are big enough to headline, going by this year's headlines unfortunately.

Am hoping for a separate London show tbh.

I would love to see them headline but then I'm just holding out hope. I'd take a London show though for sure.

When is their tour taking place? They're releasing cities but not dates from what I can find, depending on when it is, would make BOA more/less likely.

Late summer I believe. I think Megadeth have dates in the US with Ozzy before hand. Up to July.

I don't want FFDP either. But I've come to expect that at least one headliner will be a band I don't like. 2011 was the last time I liked all three.

They seem to always want at least one headlining band that appeals to the modern day Kerrang/Metal Hammer/Download crowd. FFDP fit right into that category.

I love the high expectations on this forum :lol:

That said, I have prepared various Picards for use when she inevitably announces some brocore rubbish for one of the days.

Not a nice thought, but I could see that happening quite easily. Unfortunately all three would probably attract good sized crowds making them almost inevitable.

Agreed, I can see them selling a fair few day tickets between them. I think everybody needs to push the organisers to put on other bands during the main act, as this is likely to be the format for future years.

Wish they would put them on the Sunday so I could go home early, but that would be too easy.

Yeah, lets have a shit band Sunday, everyone could go early like you apart from the day ticket wallers.

That'd rule out for BOA then surely? Now we know they're doing both Cardiff and London I can't see any logic for BOA booking them. FFDP would flop as a day ticket shifter as their fans have alternative dates.

When people reckon the next announcement will be anyway?
