I doubt they would move FNM (or FNM would accept) from headlining the main stage to the second stage; it hasn't dented their popularity. I'm aware you could attribute their headlining as part of the reason 2012 failed but given they were probably the most popular headliner of the 3 I doubt it would effect them much.

I thought Refused had disbanded again?

I wouldn't mind Tim, The Darkness, Flogging Molly, Ghost, Mastodon, Cypress Hill, and Refused (although, i think houston's right and they dispanded after they "gave Shape Of Punk... the tour it deserved"). But really, short of Cypress Hill, Refused and maybe Tim, all of the 2012 line-up is just bands who are around all the time, some more "out there"/ special acts would be better (i.e., Godspeed You! Black Emporer, Death Grips, Anamanaguchi or TV on the Radio. And a "Revival Tour" Late Night bohemia set would be incredable! )

Well, I would like him to return, but he's been running around as an actor recently and is kinda quiet on the music front.

I wouldn't put BSC that high. They were incredibly low at Isle of Wight in 2012 and were gonna open the main stage here, and I don't think they've done anything substantial since. Assuming Saturn will only run on the Saturday and Sunday, my random plucked out of thin air guesses for its headliners would be Enter Shikari and Nine Inch Nails. Definitely bands around that size are what I'd expect.

I would hope , probably against hope that second stage headliners would be along the line of FnM who I saw at the Odeon after 2012 got cancelled and I was pretty impressed, NiN who I have a (probably) unhealthy love for , and Tool .
Main stage headliners well ACDC, Led Zepp (one off concert) or Sabbath and probably (though I find them boooooring) Maiden [Rammstein would be great] . So all in all of the better bands booked for 2012 probably only FnM would stand a chance of headline on Saturn or Apollo imho :music-tool:


Incidentally Ghost are quite impressive live and Mastodon are just blindingly good live imo so either of those imo should be no brainers

I would like Ghost back but they are the strange position of being too big for Bohemia and not ideal for an open air stage; although wasn't the bohemia stage supposed to be bigger in 2011?

I wouldn't be too shocked to see Bohemia use a similar tent to the third stage at Download or the Isle of Wight's Big Top. I think Bohemia has about a 3000 capacity compared to the 5000 of the Pepsi Max tent at Download. If that happens, and screens are put outside then sure. I can see Ghost headlining. It's a shame that Sonisphere being in a residential area means that you can't have Ghost as a post-headliner band on Saturn, which would be a perfect solution.

To be fair, InMe apparently thought the Bohemia capacity was 10000 in 2011 so I could be way off, I'm pretty sure neither were any bigger than 5000 capacity though.

Pretty sure Bohemia was bigger or as big as Download's 3rd stage, the 5k figure was what I seem to recall it being and Zac said they could go a lot bigger ie 8-10k.

I thought Bohemia was bigger than the 3rd stage at Download in 2011 and i wouldn't say Ghost are too big they'd be perfect for headliner.

Ghost are an awful band who should be headlining their own bedroom.
