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

Re: Sonisphere 2017

So many pros and cons if Killi/DEAG/whoever it is who runs soni if they decide to cancel it and switch it up for a new fest. If they go smaller and cheaper: Pro- the pool of bands is expanded as there are more non-Metallica sized bands in the world Con- If DL or R/L pull some massive bands out of th...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

Everyone is an expert in festivals, with MB being CEO So that makes you his secretary? Another DL announcement, again, quite a few bands I'd enjoy but with them copying Soni but not saying how it will work, no idea how many bands I'd be able to actually see (for the standard half hour set with terr...

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

Told you they would hype anything even if it's not that special. I find it funny looking through that line up and thinking "well soni did it first" :lol: Mixed line up for me, quite a few bands I would like to see, but I know it's not worth it as they'll get half an hour and probably very ...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

On top of what Koala said the only other big thing I've heard going round is the rumour that Max and Igor Cavalera are apprantly doing Roots in full, I don't have any sources so don't even know if it's happening I've just heard it discussed. Could be anything, knowing DL it'll be 10 bands that every...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

Anyone have any idea why download are making such a big deal of this next announcement? Also - what are the camping issues with Ramblin Man? I know its a separate area (and it really bumps up the price) but what problems did they have last year? Last year Ramblin Man only did glamping on top of the...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

BOA and HRH United for me this year, no summer festivals that I could feasibly go to interest me that much. Reading Fest: only 2 bands that I casually like (RHCP and TDCC) the rest you would have to pay me to watch. I can understand why Reading has the reputation it does, I'd have to drunk and stone...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

According to Zac it's not definitely off as it stands, but not definitely on either. Sounds like there's still some work going on. So I guess that's confirmation that the only thing to confirm at the moment is that there's nothing to confirm! At this stage who can they announce that isn't "rul...

Re: Sonisphere 2017

Who really goes to a festival thinking about the promotion company putting it on? All the majority of people care about is the 3 names at the top of the billing. I meant bands/business people, the paying punter wouldn't care. But I imagine that a history of success in putting festivals on may help ...

Re: Sonisphere 2017

I don't see how launching a new fest would help them one bit. The non-event years damage the Soni brand name, but its not the reason the fest doesn't go ahead. It simply comes down to the fact that they usually can't get the acts to play. I think unless they got a huge backer they are just always g...

If Stone Free and other Euro events go well, do you think Killi will launch a new fest in place of Soni?

Re: Sonisphere 2016

Great! But what about Sonisphere?!?! If Guns n Roses are in Europe, without any UK date, they can be at Sonisphere UK. But Soni UK can't announce theme before Coachella, so no Soni news before early 2016 :) That's a risky game to play with Soni's reputation, what with 2012 and the fact most people ...
