Yeah I think they're more likely to announce a few bands rather than one massive band.

We could of course, get one headliner on a Friday and then more bands a couple of days later. The Monday, for example.

Of course, I would assume now that if we're to hear something before Christmas, something will need to be said on Friday at the latest.

They need to get a move on with annoucing some top bands before people start to comit to other festivals, soni must think that we are all made of money and we can go to multiple festivals in one year!!! :doh:

It's a bit late to be announcing like 2 bands at a time though.

Yeah that's true but most things point towards the first two weeks of July.

I can see KISS being named, which all though i like, i think it would be a dissaster for soni, they just dont a have a large fan base in the uk, and with MAIDEN headlining download i think they will struggle to sell tickets.
If they go with KISS then they will need two more big headliners to pull it off, but they really need to get ther skates on.
When you look back over the last few years when soni sterted, download organisers started to realise that they needed to make earlier announcements as they realised it would be difficult for the metal fan to go to both. Other festivals have a wide range of music scope, as for download and soni, they are mainley for rock and metal fans, hence the need to announce your headliners early and first..

^ this .. the festival target markets are the same and the bands are picked from the same pool. I remember Copping and Galbraith stating that the competition will only benefit the fans and I honestly think it has.
