It's average at best. Loads of bands who play all the time anyway, plus two bands they failed to get last year when it was news (King Diamond and Avantasia) and Emperor.
That said, they're now into their Xmas Advent calendar period of announcing bands, which means at least one band per day until Christmas, usually with the Christmas day one being a headliner, so it could yet get considerably better.
