Ergh. The Darkness confirmed as the last headliner. Early night on the Friday for me then!

Meh, last year's lineup was much more interesting to me. And Andy, I'm surprised you're not interested in watching Sacred Reich. I think they would be awesome to see live, and they don't play all that often.

I loved last year's too. I think this year's is going to edge it though. I've got so many bands to watch already.

With Sacred Reich, I only really like one album of theirs, and it's the one they play the least from. Plus, they're in London in July.

Nevertheless, if there's no one else on at the same time as them, I may watch them anyway.

This didn't turn out to be true. Twisted Sister got added as the headliner. Darkness play second on the main stage.

Many, many happy people :)

Although I'll be watching Katatonia instead of Twisted Sister, and whoever gets the empty slot on the fourth stage instead of The Darkness - which I'm hoping will be Pentagram.

Damnit. Pentagram have been put in the right place, opposite The Darkness, but Saint Vitus clash with Exodus :( Going to have to skip Exodus now.

And Orange Goblin clash with Bad Company :(
