Recommended Posts

I 2nd JoshBosh's thought process :-)

Yeah bands should be coming soon. But no festival for next summer of year has bands out as of yet except Wacken and Graspop, so...

Ringrocker is also a forum (community > Forenübersicht), where they have a rumour section. You found the rumour section on the portal, which doesn't have all the bands out of the forums (Gerüchte is German for Rumours), but only the ones that are more likely. You can find a link to the forum also on the bottom of the Faq.

Ringrocker.com is in essence a fanpage. A semi-official very good fanpage, but a fanpage nevertheless. Official is only www.rock-am-ring.de

Na I think we were talking about Schierker Feuerstein (so Jägermeister wasn't that far off).

Korn is good, but not thaaat good. It is extra good at blending with sprite, so that's what I do. Shots gotta be Schierker all the way.

Agreed on the hangover part. Morning is never that good, but friday tends to be especially bad. After noon we sorta find to ourselves and party and drink and play flunkyball or combine the 3 (lol - a given). So I totally agree on the meet up part, dunno about when and where though, that's gonna evolve. Plus, I really don't wanna miss exams because of RaR (2 years in a row is quite enough).

okay so wats everyones predictions then....even though you say The Killers arent big enough to headline in Germany, i reckon they will be chosen as a headliner as they have headlined in pretty much every other country & because the organisers wud of tried and failed to get ACDC and being Metallica already played RaR last year theres not a lot other options for headliner.

Well anyway i think the big 3 will be:

Guns N Roses

The Killers

Rammstein

with other supporting acts being:

Kings Of Leon

Slipknot

Jane's Addiction(please please please)

Deftones

Motley Crue

Also a long shot for headliner which i wouldnt rule out.....is Eminem, tho i bloody hope not

I really dunno.

The Killers don't even play in the biggest venues in Germany. Last summer they headlined Highfield which only has a capacity of 25 000. They are not big enough to headline Rock am Ring yet in Germany, because they can't ask as much money here as they do elsewhere and if they would they wouldn't be worth (ie not draw enough people). If they headline only because the other headliners are very expensive (AC DC ;-) ) or because there is nothing better on the market. Muse headlines festivals in the UK, at RaR 07 they were on late afternoon. Plus, the Killers did not play in 06.

AC DC seems unlikely and like wishful thinking. However, they have been on the wish list of MLK since forever, and the same goes with basically every AC DC fan. We may be lucky.

GnR seems like save bet so far.

Rammstein may play Hurricane again as in 05, they know the people organizing the festival quite well. They are on my extended rumour list, not more.

As Alex said, it's a good thing it is not predictable. That would take all the fun away. And there are always surprises in the line up I think.

No problem.

And sorry that my respond was full of stupid mistakes. My English used to be better, I should re-read more often before posting ;-)

Hey, I know this will sound like a stupid question but how early should I get there for a decent space? What are North loop tickets? and is there just one sort of ticket e.g. just standing room or can you but tickets for specific areas e.g. front of stage etc? Thanks

Coldplay is big enough in Germany for the main stage (unfortunately). Would rather see them at sziget than anywhere else, and in Germany hurricane would be more fitting. We'll see.
