So that's all three headliners now; The Prodigy, Metallica and Black Sabbath.
Troy Killjoy - 17.11.2011 at 21:07  
That's a lot of old men.

What does it say about me that The Prodigy are the only band of those three I'm interested in seeing?
Promonex - 18.11.2011 at 04:41  
That you care more about sexy grooves than about a trite album and a bunch of old men?
Angelic Storm - 18.11.2011 at 11:00  
The Prodigy? I prefer the days when Donington hosted the Monsters Of Rock Festival, not Download....

You might not like them, but imo they are one of the best live acts there is due to their hypnotic, frantic music and great stage presence (for a trance band anyway).

I never said I didn't like them... The comment I made has nothing to do with whether I like the band's music or not.

I realy wish they would give us more info on the line-up, i'm trying to choose between donwload and hellfest. Actualy I wish wacken had better bands for my taste, i loved there last year.
Dedcalm - 21.12.2011 at 23:50  
Out of the three, The prodigy is the one i dont want to see. Old doesnt mean bad. It means experiance. And Experiance often means a great f**king show. Personally i cant wait.
Olli - 21.01.2012 at 15:56  
Devin Townsend project, Lamb of god, devildriver, machine head, anthrax and more announced! Just bought my ticket, the line up is already better than the last couple of years.
Olli - 01.02.2012 at 16:03  
More bands announced: Slash, rise against , steel panther, black label society. Billy talent. Five finger death punch. Kyuss luves. Terrorvision. As I lay dying. Megadeath. Fear factory, Periphery Ginger wildheart, Reckless love.

So we now have all except slayer of the big four! This years line up is much heavier then the last few years which makes me very happy
Dedcalm - 26.02.2012 at 23:57  
Anyone going from Bournemouth?
The Shape 1973 - 12.06.2012 at 00:02  
I know Annette has had a baby. I think she must have eaten it.
