Subheadliners/Saturn Headliners

Postby PurpleDemon » Tue Dec 03, 2013 3:22 pm

So, who subheadlines? Who headlines Saturn?

Will we get comedy closing the weekend out on Saturn again? And if so, could Sonisphere be chasing Monty Python for what would be a legendary Sonisphere slot?

Part of me is expecting Bizkit back, but I'm gonna guess that Stone Sour will sub to Maiden and Bullet will sub to Metallica. Saturn headliners to be Python, Alice in Chains and Tenacious D. Motley Crue or Korn potentially if the comedy thing doesn't happen.

Surly if they were to do a python thing (i doubt they will) they'd do it before maiden?

Stop discussing Monty Python. It won't happen and I want bands on the main stages. The Bill Bailey set was cool and unique but I don't want it to become a "thing".

I think so, but I'd prefer to comedians to stay in Bohemia. The main stages should be reserved for bands.

Same, but I don't think you'd get Monty Python in Bohemia. You'd need the Saturn stage for them.

Of course, but you're missing the point. I don't want Monty Python to play in the Bill Bailey slot. It was awesome for Bill Bailey to appear in that slot as it was unique for a festival and I think it was the largest outdoor comedy show in the UK. However, I don't want it to become a "thing" and would prefer to see a band headline Saturn before Metallica close Apollo. Sonisphere 2014 will be a celebration of 40 years of Knebworth as a music venue, not a comedy venue. I'm more than happy for comedy acts to be dotted around the smaller stages but I want to see bands on the main stages.

Here is the Swear Jar thread.

Some alterations should probably be made to the list of phrases that warrant a £1 fine.

Given how well their tour is selling you may need Apollo :lol:

All of those would bore me so I hope not :lol: Given that AIC headlined Saturn in 2009 and then played main in 2010 aren't they too big to play Saturn? If they replace the comedy headline slot with a curveball music booking I wouldn't be so upset for example say Public Enemy as opposed to it being a more soni suitable band.
Oh joy another game of truth or troll
