I like that Wacken starts announcing bands so early. It provides a good barometer for who might be appearing at better festivals next year
Yes and no. Wacken being in August means it usually have a pretty different line up to the one we get attending the festivals in June/July.
That said, Nightwish, Anthrax and Deep Purple are all more or less guaranteed for the June festivals. 2009 since Nightwish and Anthrax did them last, not to mention new albums from both, and its been even longer for Deep Purple.
