  1. If that was the line up I’d structure it more like this: Friday: Bring Me The Horizon, Architects, While She Sleeps Saturday: Metallica, Gojira, Mastodon Sunday: System of a Down, Faith No More Maybe throw Disturbed on under Faith No More. An older band headlining second against BMTH would probably be wise too, maybe Motley Crue or Judas Priest.
  2. I’d go. Some odd placings though assuming that’s the MainStage? Why have Mastodon suddenly jumped from subbing second this year to subbing main? sandwiched between BMTH & Architects is an odd place to put them too. Architects should sub next time they play, Powerwolf and Meshuggah are a few slots too high.
  3. They have the luxury of scaling to about 150,000 punters if needs be, so no they don’t tend to sell out.
  4. If AEG are looking to put on something to rival Download then next year is the time to do it. Slipknot, Avenged Sevenfold, Metallica, Aerosmith, Judas Priest, Five Finger Death Punch, NIN, Limp Bizkit just to name a few are all around and not doing Download/any uk fests. The problem is, as Sonisphere showed, it's not sustainable to have two large heavy/metal festivals in the UK.
  5. Ah yeah fair, I guess we'll see. If they stick to 2pm open they're going to have to be on it at the gates for eveyone that wants to catch the first band at 5pm.
  6. Imagine having Metallica, Muse, Avenged Sevenfold, NIN, Bring Me the Horizon, Guns n Roses, Foo Fighters, Green Day, all potentially available in Europe around June but being tied in to having bloody Kiss headlining.
  7. I didn't say they were, I was pointing out why it wasn't fair to have one rule for the vaccinated & one rule for those who aren't (predominantly younger people). Man this place is toxic of late.
  8. Yes? I wasn't saying otherwise? He suggested vaccinated people should have no restrictions now. I pointed out why that wasn't fair. Either end for all, or push back until everyone has a chance to be vaccinated.
  9. No, it's a way to shaft younger people again to satisfy the older generation. Young people with minimal risk endured 18 months of this to safeguard the vulnerable & elderly. Now the tables are somewhat turned you think it's fair to exclude younger people from a large part of society so that the privileged vaccinated can go back to business as usual... (I agree all restrictions should end now, but that wasn't what we were talking about here.)
  10. In what world is that a fair way of doing it when vacine dates have been mandated by age/vulnerability... I find it amusing that a lot of older/vulnerable vaccinated people are suddenly in favour of opening up now they feel safe after their second jabs, when they were the same people in the past criticising younger people for not aderheing to the rules and waiting a little longer until the vulnerable/elderly were safe despite the risk being lower for younger people.
  11. This isn't confirmed yet. Are we sure it's true? It's a huge line up if true & makes Download (particularly Kiss) look very weak in comparison.
  12. Hope so, or at the very least a decent bar playing music (like the cocktail bar in 2019). Would make sense to use the second stage tent for something since it's all one big arena.
  13. What have Megadeth done exactly to move up the lineup? If they're booking Architects, book them as the sub. An odd fit under Kiss? Sure, but let them blow Kiss off the stage & prove to everyone that newer bands should be taking those high slots.
  14. Creeper Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes While She Sleeps
  15. Thanks both! Doesn't feel real yet that in two weeks we'll be at an actual festival.
  16. Those that have already done the +1 option - does the link for the code come in a separate email to the booking confirmation? I'm sure it does, but I just want to check I'm not overlooking anything in the confirmation email like a tit.
  17. I think Creeper already confirmed they're headlining second. I also think Neck Deep will be on the 'main' stage & Sleep Token on second.
  18. That's great, but who's taking the high slots the year after? Download needs a blend of old & new, hopefully this will be the start of that. I'd be interested to know if Andy & the usual team booked this line up, or if Melvin Benn & co had more of an influence.
  19. Deftones are subbing Maiden as confirmed by Andy, Korn are subbing Biffy because they're playing elsewhere on the Friday. If Offspring are playing they're either subbing Kiss, headlining second instead of Killswitch or they're playing third down on the main stage.
  20. But Megadeth have since taken that slot & are confirmed as second stage headliners. So either the Offspring play third down on a day, or they headline second instead of Killswitch...
  21. With Megadeth confirmed as headlining second it would be tricky to slot them in assuming Killswitch are also returning, but I guess it could be something like: Friday: Kiss, A Day to Remember, the Offspring Second: Megadeth, the Distillers Saturday: Maiden, Deftones, Gojira Second: Killswitch Engage, Mastodon Sunday: Biffy Clyro, Korn, Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes Second: Steel Panther, the Darkness
  22. Would I go? Absolutely Is it realistic? Unfortunately not
  23. Between Download & R&L? I doubt it, they're basically run by the same company these days.
