Re: No Bands Clashing with Maiden

I saw maiden in Glasgow years ago. Third song in he stopped and demanded everyone stopped jumping around and declared 'you are not watching Slipknot'

Re: The FAQ page, alcohol.

Would I be right in thinking you can buy cases of beer (at vastly increased prices) at Soni? I think it's about £45 for 24 cans of Carlsberg. They advertise them as cold but they never are. Cooling them would cost more money and that's just not gonna happen. I'm pretty sure they were 25. Which is s...

I am sure we bought a case of Carlsberg on the first night as we couldn't be bothered hitting Tesco until the next morning.

Re: The weather...

The weather was so bad at Download that they delayed opening the arena by around 3 hours which meant the first couple of bands were cancelled I am sure. Then when they did open half of the main stage was closed completely so we had to watch Fear Factory in the strangest atmosphere ever. The weather ...

Download 2012 was the worst experience of my life. Still having nightmares. First time I went five day camping as well.

Re: Will there be a Sonisphere 2015?

That's a hard call. They won't book Metallica and Maiden again. I can't see them taking any of Downloads headliners. So who does that leave? Kiss, Tool, Foo Fighters, RHCP, Rammstein.... Slipknot, Sabbath, Rush, Manowar, Judas Priest, Guns N Roses, Nickelback, Green Day, Blink 182, Paramore, QOTSA,...

Re: Is That The Lineup Complete.....

Ok I understand people here saying Bohemia is awesome. But that's a very niche side of the lineup. Most punters won't know 80% of Bohemia bands. So on to the main stages. Bands like HR subbing, HIM third from top. Even Limp Bizkit and AIC. Its been years since anyone gave a gooseberry about these ba...

Re: Is That The Lineup Complete.....

Well relevant bands do matter. I mean Hundred Reasons were largely forgotten and haven't really done much for around ten years. The fact they are playing a twelve year old album in full confirms this. Sets like that should be a bit nostalgia for the people that liked them back in the day. They said ...

So Hundred Reasons who haven't been relevant in around a decade and a few other unheard of bands announced today. Is that the final announcement does anyone know? I am shocked Hundred Reasons got the sub slot on Saturn.

Love Fall Of Troy musically but the vocals really aren't for me. That being said I'd definitely check them out if added.

Re: Monday 12th May - Announcement

If Clutch are still in Europe on the 28th then it's quite possible they will hang back another few days and pick up a few festival dates. Saw them in Edinburgh last week and they were amazing so crossing my fingers for them.

Jack White would be amazing but where would he play? You have a source for the scheduling conflict?

Re: Sonisphere has banned legal highs. Oh dear.

Totally agree. Not a fan of legal highs myself but it is totally wrong to ban them. People go to festivals to try different things and I reckon trying legal highs over a random salesman in the campsite has to be safer. It's all dependant on what's in the Daily Mail at the moment. Media whip up a fre...
