Why on earth isn't this a touring festival? It would probably skip here if it was anyway.

It wouldn't work as a touring festival. Most of those bands can't draw flies outside of the PP environment. A lot of people go to this fest because of the atmosphere....partying with bands and the fans at the hotel, etc. You wouldn't have that on a traveling festival.

Never have I been more motivated to try going to this, with Seventh Wonder, Stratovarius and Pagans Mind. Overkill and seeing Streets would be fun as well but I'd kill to see the first three. Need to start saving for a plane ticket!

Only complaint I have about Stratovarius is they're no original members. The oldest member in the band has only been in since 1994 but the band has been around since 1986. In between 86 and 94 are some of the band's best albums but if they play anything from them then wouldn't that just be a cover band?

I live 45 minutes from the venue and always forget the fest is happening until the day after, so you're not that far off.

There is no doubt in my mind whatsoever that I'm finally going to go next year. This might be my favorite lineup they've had in at least 7 years at this point (2010 and 2009 were both commendable)... If there was going to be one major outlier, Overkill is about the best choice they could've made for my personal tastes. Regarding them not headlining: It's standard practice for ProgPower to bill bands according to what they consider to be the demand amongst the festival's audience... so I think their slot is a proper one. Also, no one ever plays less than 45+ minutes there. Even 3 bands down the bill, you can count on a minimum of 60 minutes from them.

I'm glad they took it back to 6 bands per night as opposed to 7, and also I'm glad to see a minimal inclusion of the Folk/Viking and Symphonic Metal demographics for a change. Jon Oliva's Pain, Seventh Wonder, Stratovarius, Pagan's Mind, DGM, and Ordan Ogen are the bands I'm currently most excited about. Masterplan has let me down in recent years and now there's no Jorn, but I glanced at a recent setlist and they still play half of their first album live, so I will still have a fantastic time seeing them live. Also, Voodoo Circle is a great inclusion, it's always nice to see some Melodic Hard Rock stuff getting some love. All of that plus JOP playing Streets, Seventh Wonder playing Mercy Falls, and personal friends of mine Draekon getting this amazing opportunity... I'm sold, no doubt about it.
