Re: Final Headliner Announcement

Last time PJ played the O2 arena, they played for nearly 3 hours. Maiden's ticket price for the O2 in August was £60 for standing. Certainly put me off going. PJ at MK is on 11th July - jsut a few days after Soni so I won't be going unless someone gives me a ticket. I'd really like to go but that's...

Re: Final Headliner Announcement

I didn't realise they had sold around 60 million albums worldwide. Just been having a listen to them on Spotify, and out of the "top 10 songs" I think I might know Even Flow but that's it. I don't know about them, they aint really my thing at all. Might have heard Alive once somewhere. I r...

Re: Final Headliner Announcement

£65 for a gig ticket? That is a wee bit too much is it not? I mean, Rammstein were £40 I think and they have a huge stage show. And also, as someone who has never listened to Pearl Jam, and isn't even sure if he has heard any of their songs, should they headline? The way I see headliners is most fol...

Dream Theater to headline Saturn with a 15th anniversary playthrough of Scenes From a Memory. That'd be worth the ticket money on its own for me.: This.

The word "rock" has never appeared on this year's artwork, however.


Has it not? I thought it did for a while back at the start. Maybe I was just seeing things.

And rockgeek is right. Metal Hammer doesn't feature enough hammers. Something should be done about that.

Re: Final Headliner Announcement

By the way it's all personal opinion. I never speak on behalf of soni/Kili!!! Likewise with me. I personally don't like Prodigy, but I would never complain about them being at a rock festival. Just like I cannot stand Metallica, yet wont complain at them being there. At the end of the day, they're ...

Re: Final Headliner Announcement

It doesn't matter how good they are live or how they work, it's about what they sound like. Everything I've heard by The Prodigy sounds like dance not rock. I agree with this. Sure it isn't exactly happy hardcore, but it is still dance. Not saying I disagree with them being at a rock festival by th...

Re: Final Headliner Announcement

Does Prodigy, Maiden and Metallica justify the £215 price tag though? And we have the first legitimate complaint of the thread. They'll need a strong undercard to justify this as a £215 festival. The headliners are strong, but are they that strong? Not a Prodigy fan myself but there is no denying t...

Meanwhile the hypothetical alternate universe Sonispheres that announced Def Leppard or Aerosmith are now sweating having to find a tent that can fit 30000. Those bands would have been more suitable and actually fit the theme though, The Prodigy are as far leftfield as you can get. Not an aerosmith...

I had a dream (or a nightmare rather) last night that Nickleback were actually closing the festival. On another note, I don't think ZZ Top would be a good headliner. I think they would be far better as a middle of the day band on the Friday I think, when everyone is a bit hungover (or still drinking...
