Or that apart from the top few bands, running orders mean very little in terms of status.
When this year's Sweden Rock schedule is released, it will have Avantasia "above" Rush. Does that mean Rush is "opening for" Avantasia? No. It means because Rush's stage takes so long to set up, the rest of the bill that would normally play on that stage is having to be split between other stages and the only way to fit everyone in is to have Rush play early (9pm instead of the customary 11:30pm) and put Avantasia on after. For example.
