eFestivals is fund-raising

eFestivals has been here 20 years supporting festivals and festival goers. Without your support it will not continue as it has been.
Advertising used to pay the bills but advertising revenues are much less than they were.

Festivals: if you'd like us to continue to promote your event to our 650,000 monthly readers you'll need to give a helping hand.
Festival-Goers: if every visitor in just one day donated just £2, that would provide funding for a whole year.

They did say they wnated to play some warm-up gigs before Glasto/Hyde Park. Maybe headlining a second stage at a big european festival would fit in with this???

with any luck axl rose will fall off the edge of the planet, how can any festival organiser want to spend a shitload of money on an act so unpredictable. I'd rather they spent the money on acts like nin, who are known for their live shows, especially if trent is jacking it in after 09!

2 questions for Ringrocker.......Whats the evidence with Pearl Jam being a rumour? & Creed as a rumour....didnt even think they were together anymore? :lol:

somewhere else has said about creed as well, apparently it depends on whether the alter bridge frontman goes off to do this new side project with the rest of zeppelin. So now we have a bastardised led zep and creed reforming, robert plant is going to feel the wrath from the hammer of the gods after this one :lol:

i'd like to see him on the wrong end of a shotgun....

seriously though, the guy's not a musician, he's a joke, and booking axl and the hired guns is always a gamble, i'd just rather they when with someone that will always guarantee a great show, and more importantly, always turns up!

I'm crossing my finger's for G'N'R, Mötley Crüe and AC/DC in 09. That would have been awesome, and of course Turbonergro :(

And there's no way i'm camping at C1 or wtf the place was called this time, too long to walk. got so drunk getting to the ring area, i missed half the bands i wanted to see :blink:

LOL i dont normally agree with many people, but those 3 headliners would be sick, and all possible as all 3 have released albums quite recently, and finally i have chinese democracy, which i think is pretty good

Guns N Roses = Good Chance

Motley Crue = Good Chance but not as headliner, probably 3rd up as in 2005

AC/DC = Theres more of a chance of me flying to the moon in a Ryanair plane, theyre already doing a lot of stadium shows in Germany and the Ringrocker dude on here has already ruled them out and hes a pretty reliable fella!

I really wish I knew... We'll have to wait and see and watch the UEFA Cup draw instead I guess. If there are bands they will be confirmed on ringrocker.com first, and only later be added to the official website. If they don't come today but next week I expect a totally surprising and BIG headliner, though.
