Bloodstock and Hammerfest for me this year.

Still going to be a great year for festivals, but it won't be the same without a big "blockbuster" festival to go to. I might consider download if they add a few more tolerable bands. Shame hellfest is already sold out :O

Shows what slim pickings there are this year for major headliners and big bands.

I'll be at download but no camping for me this year. Was holding out for Soni and can't afford camping at both.

For some reason the Hevy Fest page seems to be spamming a load of stuff for viagra type stuff.

Will keep an eye on Damnation actually and hope the line-up is better than last year! May be a possibility for this year.

Going to Hellfest this year and that's it so far

Really disappointed as was so looking forward to meeting old friends again and having a cracking weekend like last year! No festivals for me this year, quite a sobering thought that one! :cry:

It would be nice for Sonisphere or Kilimanjaro to just put us out of our misery at this point!

Careful - you don't want Zac to come on here and do her "It just... it pains me that you would even think that us ignoring you was us ignoring you. I'm just so hurt that anyone would even consider that" thing.

Not having a pop at Zac, Alan Day or Sonisphere per se just feel the time has come to admit it is not going to happen this year! Zac does a sterling job and I would never moan or bitch at her as I know how passionate she is about her work!

I think we all agree that they all do amazing work and we know they'll tell us anything as soon as they have confirmation but that doesn't make the wait any less excrutiating!

They must be trying to work something out otherwise they would've just said 'no,it's not happening' already. I'm keeping my optimism and know they will let us know as soon as they can. It would be really nice to know something soon though

i have to agree, they would have told us it not happening by now, best just to keep quiet until they know either way.

if they do say its happening i will be there as long as its not the same weekend as my daughters wedding.

They say yes - it's going ahead
They say no - it's not going ahead
They say nothing - it might be going ahead

I'm going, festival or not. They can't frakking stop me, not with my camp stealth.

By that I mean I camp stealthily, not that I'm stealthily camp. I firmly reject any insinuation of my campness being masked in any way.

Anyway, I'm frakking going to Sonisphere '15, even if I have to hold it myself with sock puppets and a bloody ukulele.

If it helps, I interpreted that as stealthy, in a camp way. Skin tight black leather catsuit, pink night vision goggles, and if you alert a guard you clap both hands to your cheeks and do Frankie Howerd's "ooo!" face.

I wonder why they don't sell pink night vision goggles.

You know, given that banning guns is going to be impossible, maybe it should be mandated that all guns have to be manufactured in shades of pink, and printed with decals of rainbows and unicorns and stuff. You can easily imagine a trio of radical Ismalists catching sight of themselves as the enter an office block and thinking "You know what.... this just doesn't feel like 'me'. Can't we go home and do some arm-wrestling instead?"

Looking like I won't be going to any festivals, but does anyone know if & when Bloodstock do day tickets? Decent lineup on the Friday.
