Nova Rock 2018

Recommended Posts

Went to this last year and it was very good. Headliners were Linkin Park, Blink-182, System of a Down and Green Day.

Nova Rock have put on their Instagram that the first bands for 2018 will be announced by the end of October and hinted that it WON’T be Iron Maiden. Worth keeping an eye on this for who will be about in June next year for other heavy festivals.

I bet on Nightwish and Ozzy.
This year I need to choose June festival, so Nova Rock could be a possibility for me, hope for some great bands there! 2017 lineup was good.

What was the atmosphere like Foolee? Thinking of heading over on my own but don't want to be surrounded by drunk idiots. Been to Download and Rock Werchter amongst others. How does it compare?

Been to Rock Werchter so can compare to that. It has more drunken idiots but nothing annoying and the atmosphere is in general the same actually. Crowd isn't really going crazy for anyone. Don't think i saw bigger moshpit than 20 people

Cheers mate. Quite tempted (line up dependent) as I can't make Download. I'm thinking of going VIP but would imagine that will sell out quickly and I'd like to see what line ups GMM and Werchter have before arranging flights etc. 

Also I can see it's only 3 days. Do they start with 3 days then extend to 4 if they get the bands as they have done the last couple of years or have they stated it will only be 3 days this year? 

Thanks again.

2 years ago they changed to 4 when they announced the lineup - 100% sure, not sure about last year. Didn't follow it closely really

I think Nova Rock is normally the same weekend as Download. May be different this year though I havent checked

Only A Perfect Circle missing from bands that I wanted but it's quite a good start. Does anyone know until when you get tickets for all 4 days when you buy them? I know that at one point you stop getting for day 0 but I don't know when, I usually buy it early but I'm not 100% certain for this year :D

I literally wrote the worst post of all time :lol:

Turns out that my memory is wrong, they just didn't offer day tickets for that day and I mixed it up...

How expensive is Austria and the festival as a whole? Considering doing this or Graspop.

 

I've been at Frequency, a pint was 5€ and food quite expensive (like Belgium/Dutch festivals).

Food is expensive too but at Novarock you can buy 0.5l cans for 1€ in the campsite

Last year beer was 1,5€ in the campsite. 

Next month they will announce more bands. I'm really dissapointed that they didn't booked Foo Fighters, Guns n Roses or Ozzy Osbourne.

Yeah, that's quite decent. My theory is that they couldn't find one more big headliner so decided to spend more money on tier 2 acts like Avengded, The Prodigy, Manson...
