OMG THE BACKSTREET BOYS ARE STILL TOGETHER?

...Seriously? That seems like a cruel, elaborate joke.

I really think that is intresting how some promoters choose to get metalbands to play a few years and then suddenly just stop booking metalbands. Itīs like they know that metalbands draw huge crowds and then suddenly just stop booking them thinking like: "The metalcrowd will still come".

Here in Sweden we once just had one rockfestival called "Hultsfred" which was big enough to book big international artists. Mostly pop-artists though, like Oasis, Blur, Mary J Blidge and so on.

In the beginning of the 21th century they saw a steadily decline in attendance and therefore in 2005 they decided to get metalacts. So in 2005 the headliners was: Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Slayer, Slipknot and System of a Down.

Needless to say the festival sold out. However gradually the floowing years there wasnīt as much metal booked and the attendance once again started to decline. So last year was supposed to be the last Hultsfredfestival. However thanks to the municipality of Hulstfred there will be festial in 2010 only smaller and only swedish artists.

Sorry for the off-topic. But to Andrew I think thatthe promoters of Rock in India will see that booking those kinds of bands will not draw the huge crowds as metalbands do

Well a lot of us I guess aren't "in the know" like you are so this is the first a lot of people are hearing about it.

There are multiple blogs at that Myspace link so I'm not sure what you're all talking about.

The blog entry is titled "this has been upsetting me quite a bit"

Sorry about the confusion. The link posted here is for my myspace blog which I've updated a couple of times after writing this one. So just scroll down a little bit and you'll see it.
