I am not too impressed. I fear the Killers and Slipknot will headline. A few good German bands (Tomte, Kettcar, Polarkreis 18, Peter Fox (!), the Killians) , but not too many good int. bands (Slipknot is not too much of my liking but ok I guess, Vollbeat is nice, Peter Björn and John okay. The rest is rubbish to utter rubbish.

I'll go anyways, but I hope for better bands over the next months.

And please please please don't let the killers headline.

Or actually, yes, let them headline so I don't have to go the main stage at all.

SHIT. The way they present them at Rock am Ring.de it seems like the killers, Placebo and Slipknot will headline. Worst Case Scenario :-(

well, as you said if they headline the main stage, at least i wont have to try and fight my way to the front as i don't care for them. I prefer the alternative stage anyhow, i could stay there all day, loads of food, ample places to drink, no fighting to get to the front.....

"Headliner" is relative. Could also mean Alterna-Headliner or co-headliner on center.

Placebo, The Killers and Slipknot as centerstag-headliners? Never ever.

Pinkpop: Depeche Mode confirmed, Pearl Jam and the Killers rumoured (The killers are bigger in NL than in D though, so they would headline for sure).

And Rock Werchter, Roskilde and Hurricane, of course... Just a pitty for the camping ground, that was always ace at RaR.

They didn't in 06, when they got Metallica and GnR late and only announced DM at the beginning, but they did for 07 and 08 I think. Depends on what they can get I fear...

In this connection to Slipknot it could also mean headlining the Alterna (= 2nd) stage, The Killers and Placebo would most likely be co-heads on the main stage then, if MLK can come up with some real headliners. Fingers crossed.

Blimey they are not going to shift many tickets with that announcement...

As Createur says:

They release bands, when there is green light from the agents. It depends.

As you can see in whole festival-europe, "real" headliners haven't been announced yet for any big festival apart from Depeche Mode.

Look at Rock Werchter, Roskilde, Download...

Delighted!Il be going back to Germany again!!

Killers, Slipknot, Kooks, Trivium and KSE, all I hope for now is Enter SHikari and Limp Bizkit.

I think the global recession and the fear of not selling out means there isnt the budget for people who command massive fees, like GnR....

These are still on the rumours list:

Guns N Roses

I

Ich bin bunt

K

Kings Of Leon

M

Machine Head

Moetley Cruee

N

S

Good news. According to David (Admin at Ringrocker) the killers won't be headlining. Don't think Slipknot or Placebo will be either, therefore. Wohoo!

As I said, he's one of the guys behind ringrocker.com, I am by no means affiliated with him. However, PJ and GnR are still part of the official rumours over there, which means that the organizers are talking to them or they announced that they want to play festivals in Europe at that time.

@ Alex: Well, they can also shoot themselves in the foot with that policy in the long run, look at Glastonbury last year.

To me pretty much all of the announced and rumored bands are for the Alternstage. With the next announcement I expect more groups for the central stage. I wish to see some real headliners. By now only Slipknot are in the "headliner category". I hope for something better in the next month or so.

Patience :lol:

If these are the headliners I will be very disappointed. The Killers might headline or perhaps Slipnot.

But if you think about this, if these bands are only alternative headliners or 2nd or 3rd on the main stage and bigger bands are to headline, the line up will be prettty strong.
