Well, line ups are being announced, money is being saved... the festivals season is nigh upon us...

What ones are you attending?

I will be sticking with Download this year, I can't afford Wacken.

Bands worth mentioning are Dream Theatre, Machine Head, Maiden, Saxon, LoG (yes I like them) Dragonforce, and of course Slayer (Megadeth have also been announced, but I don't know too much of their stuff).

What are other peoples plans?

Holy Shit, I didn't know Dream Theater were up for Download

I might go for one day at Download, but i'm going for Wacken this year. Hopefully my mate will be able to come aswell, but if not, i'm afraid i'll have to scrounge this forum for people to meet up with, haha.

Festivals have been sucking huge the past few years. Last good line-up I saw was Sacrifice of the Nazarene Child VI. Most others have just been mediocre. Wacken the past few years has been especially disappointing.

Doom Shall Rise is the only one that I'm really interested in at the moment.
I may go Bloodstock Open Air for one day, on whatever day Blind Guardian are playing.

I'm too far away/young to go to any really

Though (permitted they haven't got Bring Me The Horizon as headliners by that time) I will go to Wacken once I'm old enough.

I didnt' read about anyone going to Immortal at Wacken this year.
That will be awsome, Black Dahlia Murder etc.

The line up for this year is a bit KaK but there are some damn good bands.
#16
I really wanna go to Wacken this year.
Hopefully i can trick someone to buy me a ticket and get me there.

going to download this year. i actually feel that this years line up may be one of the best imo anyway.
i cant wait to see killswitch, slayer, manson, bmth (went to see them in middlesbrough last year and they refused to play) enter shikari, motley crue, buck cherry, iron maiden, machine head, lamb of god, dragon force, velvet revolver, bowling for soup

there my faves so far. i think the line up does rock. i hope it beats last year.

i watched the high lights and axls singing last year was awful. especially paradise city. still i got to see them a month later in newcastle but he didnt play paradise city :@

^The Download lineup is a mixture of good and pure suckage. Out of the bands you mentioned. Slayer, Machine Head, Dragonforce and Lamb of God are good. The rest suck.

Also, Dream Theatre are playing, which should be epic.

Or rather correctly haha

Wacken has a great atmosphere, you can have a laugh there even if you're not watching any bands. Good food, good shopping, well organised, nice people etc.

Furyfest (now called Hellfest France) is pretty good from what my mates have told me, FTC used to be really good but its going a bit downhill these days. Neurotic Deathfest is a pretty good mini fest as well, mainly because of the venue being purpose built for metal (!!!), Inferno is immense fun just because of the camping in the woods thing haha

As for in this country, Download is generally packed with knobheads, regardless of what bands play, and Bloodstock is painfully inconsistent (good line up one year, shitty one the next) although you have to be a power metal freak to like it lol

If I end up living in Chicago next year I might get to experience some American festivals, I'd love to go to MDF even though living in Illinois won't get me anywhere near there haha

Maryland Deathfest looks sweet. If ozzfest has 2 or 3 good bands I'll go just because its free and its a fun day. Hopefully there will be another Death in the Forest, I missed last years.

Download looks horrible and Wacken is much too far away.

Anyone else thinking of going to Hellfest? Bo mentioned it a few posts up. Lineup here, looks pretty good.

Shame I have no friends who will want to go, other than to see Dream Theater
