We don't know the reasons for that, do we? I mean, it could have been for anything. Besides, Sonisphere have had a lot of things go against them in the UK in the last few years so I'm sure he's not solely responsible... :?

That's hardly relevant to the festival failing, then. Sure, it may be karma, but it isn't why Sonisphere UK failed. :P

Nah he got sacked because LN found out he was in talkswith AEG to start a new promotions company - kililive. Nothing dodgy or to do with how competant he was at his job.

Oh and their rep is hardly ruined, as a promoter they are one of the biggest in the UK, probably the biggestindependant one. If they continue to work with bands and continue to do the fest in europe maybe in future they will manage to bring it back. Again not saying I think it will be back, but at the same time to say it's never coming back is almost as naive as saying it certainly will

I could see it coming back in years to come as a massive return and having an effect but not in the next 3-4 years.

I think timescales are hard to judge. All they need is a year with enough good bands touring and perhaps a bit more luck with securing them. Maybe 2014 will be the year, maybe it won't

Yeah nobody knows but I'm sick of speculating really, news will come when/if it comes.

I think the name 'Sonisphere' will be tarnished for a few years, but when the inevitable rage war has ended, I see no reason why they can't regroup and rebook and try again. Not saying they will, but they MIGHT. :D

If the line up is good, people will go regardless of this year or next. Maybe not everyone but the majority. If they can get a good line up next year then they'll be back and if it really is good, it'll sell

Time for a rebranding then? Noisecube perhaps?

VolumeTriangle.

Yeah, you're right, it doesn't have the same impact. ;)

Download is out of the question for me, due to work. But Hellfest and Bloodstock are looking attractive options for me! ;)

Bloodstock only has about three good bands so far. Slayer would be amazing to see headlining a festival I reckon, even if they can be hit and miss live.

Yeah, and I'm interested to see Lamb of God headlining a festival too! ;) I'm not sure how they plan on it working, isn't Randy about to be re-sentenced? :o

Had some family round for a few drinks last night. They went home about 12.30, and none of them sods have work today :(

I am not going to enjoy today.

If he's guilty then he deserves to go to jail and you shouldn't feel sad about that. Do you really want criminals to walk free? Ignore the fact that you're a fan of LoG for a second and think about it seriously. If you were a massive Lostprophets fan would you want Ian Watkins to stay a free man?
