I believe we were promised 1 mainstage band, that says Thunder will headline Bohemia, they may be part of an announcement, but I doubt that'll be all.
Upcoming:
Machine Head/Bring Me The Horizon, New Found Glory/Sum 41, Rammstein, Enter Shikari, Blink 182

Fair enough, but Metal Hammer led us to believe it was going to be a mainstage band announcement so maybe there's another band too.

EDIT - or in other words ^^^^^ what he said

WAIT PEOPLE

its for the bohemia stage read it

The band will be headlining the Bohemia tent stage and they will start their show 10 minutes after Linkin Park finish their headlining set on the main stage. This really will be the very last hurrah!

Yeah but they are announcing a mainstage band today, so this is not the big announcement which some people seem to be saying it is

Thunder are a classic rock band who never really got the credit they were due. They put on a huge performance at a monsters of rock in the eighties and got reasonably big, but nothing major. They're now retiring completely, and by the looks of their tour dates, up till now, this seems to be their last ever gig.

they wont clash with anyone because their gig starts after the main stage has finished.....

Remember though people. It's only metal hammers twitter who announced it was a mainstage band, and they may have only said that based on what was said in the podcast. Note how soni's twitter guy said he didn't know about it.

Yes, from the old skool of chugging riffs, deep basslines, simple but resonant percussion, flawless vocals - excellent live.

They also have an obsession with clapping hands...

When were we promised a "big band". We were told there were some surprises to come but nothing that big.

And as far as surprises go, this is massive.

Headlining Bohemia AFTER Linkin Park finish!! :o :D That will be SO much fun!! Late night classic rock!! They were really good at Download, and I only really knew one or two songs. Great fun. Glad they've confirmed, and we've still got a mainstage announcement coming our way! :D

I agree, this is huge!

They're going to show so many of the younger but 'more established' bands up!!

And they are in an absolutely perfect slot as well.
