welcome back pal! :D Wondered where you wandered off tae.

Sounds good, was hoping for next week as Reading were bams and stole this week announcements-wise :P Would hazard a guess at Tuesday (as last one was a tuesday) or Wednesday so it goes to print in Kerrang and stuff.

I'm argumentative, so I hope some gooseberry bands will be announced :P
Not really, I really want to go this year but I can't justify it yet

The important point isn't how many bands will be in the announcement, it's that there will be an announcement.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to the festival now, based on the fact I really want to go to a festival this year and sonisphere makes sense as my choice. But this announcement should be the decider as to how excited i'm gonna get, and how many of my friends I can coerce into going :D

Quite abit earlier than the other two announcements then. If Kerrang have the announcement then this could see a few of their favourite bands added.

I really hope that they announce Iron Maidens special guests this Wednesday and if it is Deep Purple i will be very happy. I would be extremely happy if they also announce The Pretty Reckless as Bohemia headliners on the Friday night.

Does the rumour of Deep Purple subbing Maiden/headlining Saturn have any legs or is it people speculating since they're at Hellfest the fortnight before? Would love to see Purple and Maiden on the same bill :D OR even better...Preist!!!!

Deep Purple played Knebworth before as well, so they'd fit into the 40 years malarky, so think that's why people think there's a decent chance of 'em playing! Would love to see them below Maiden

Got a feeling we won't get Deep Purple.

Expecting Slash, Frank Turner and Machine Head to be in this announcement.

I know they aren't an easy band to book, sure Andy Copping spoke about them being difficult to get for Download if I remember correctly, so could be right, but they must have at least tried to get them with the 40 years thing.

Would be ecstatic with Frank Turner and Slash!

If we're getting the final sub I can't see us getting a lot of bands then, probably like the last announcement. 1 or 2 big slots with a smattering of smaller bands.
