Re: Sonisphere 2016

Wait DL are copying soni? AC has said that the top of some stages won't clash, which stages won't clash and at what time during the day they will stop clashing hasn't been announced. Like Soni did with Apollo and Saturn There have been more than a few occasions recently where they've not clashed ma...

Re: Sonisphere 2017

2014s not selling out could in some part be down to the fact people have been moaning about Metallica being over exposed forever now (I'd still go see them), it being Maidens 4th show of the Maiden England tour In England (Whole of the UK maybe?) and the Friday facing competition from Black Sabbath/...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

No, sorry, that's a load of bollocks. Ignoring your fanbase, the people who've bought the tickets the years it has gone ahead, is not the answer. They should be less concerned with maintaining a balance on how much information to give away while retaining their image and focus more on retaining som...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

It's a response at least which is what most on here were looking for even if it was a "maybe" or "working on it". The response is exactly why they don't reply often when there's no news - people whinge at silence saying even a 'working on it' response is better than being ignore...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

reply to a tweet says it's probably not going ahead. Probably?!?! When will you know for sure then? Or are you just gonna do the decent thing and officially tell people it's not on? Hypothetically it means they have some kind of offer out to some band(s) who would ensure it went ahead but who are a...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

From what was said about last year, once all the offers they had out that could have led to a successful event going ahead had been turned down they let people know it was off. Sure there was speculation on here in the past month or so that it's probably the same type of situation.

That is 100% how you have to treat this.

Re: Sonisphere 2016

Think it's pretty damning for the future as well. Far more headline worthy bands in and around Europe this summer compared to last.

Re: Sonisphere 2016

But to not say ANYTHING??? That's not really any better is it. What can they say? Kipper on the Download forums, I think had a pretty good take on why they've ended up in the situation they're in this year. Long and short seems to be they can't compete financially. Being a smaller promoter and putt...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

Do feel for team Soni a bit, without something to announce there'll never be enough they can say. Would a "we're working on it" really be better? What kind of reaction does that get if weeks later you have to again say "sorry guys not happening this year"? With out bands to annou...

Re: Sonisphere 2017

Well that may well be true about the headliners but I think festival organisers always assume that punters want the biggest and therefore most expensive bands in the top slots. I'd prefer interesting acts that don't play quite as often. Curve ball acts if you will. Unfortunately, it seems UK organi...

2000trees, ArcTanGent, Slam Dunk, Hit the Deck, Camden Rocks, Hevy, anywhere that isn't Reading or Download.

Rock Werchter if I can get the money/find pals to go with.

Re: Sonisphere 2016

Red Rooster. Although I'll be doing that whatever happens over in Knebworth. The trouble with one dayers at Knebworth is the travel and parking scenario. Not enough late trains to get people home and horrible organisation in the car parks. I know the bands and promoters don't care about those thing...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

Soni is done.

Think the best thing they could do in future is try to run one or two, one day events at Knebworth. 100k+ capacity . Any reason that wouldn't work?
