What a bummer! The last gig of a 3 days/nights during party and they give us Slipknot?!

Not that I'm planning to go to this anyway due to immense geographical restraints, but wow...sounds like they're off to a shitty start!

Scorpions and Ozzy Osbourne are rumored to be the other 2 headliners, and also Iced Earth and Heaven Shall Burn are among the bands to be confirmed tomorrow.

Scorpions and Ozzy being the headliners for Hellfest Open Air, that makes sense.. Now, does that mean that we'll have Slipknot at Hellfest as well? Hmm, we'll see..

@Thryce holy shit, Iced Earth are doing a european festival tour? i'll attend one of those fests if it's the last thing i do.

Rock Werchter ( pop/rock/commercial festival) stole Iron Maiden and Graspop (metal festival) gets Slipknot. How typical.

Slipknot's live shows are supposed to be pretty good. I'd rather catch them at a metal festival than paying for a gig with only maggots all around you.

Fucking lame. haha.

Yeah it is pretty lame... they also played there in 2009 but I have to admit their show was a lot better than I'd expected!

Hot stuff for start....nice, this could developed to a very very decent line-up.

Priest not headlining? Scandalous...

I was pretty sure not to come back for another graspop this year since the last one hadn't been so good but with Scorpions, Ozzy , Priest and apparently Iced Earth already booked, I might reconsider my choice.

By the way, I agree it's a pitty that Priest isn't going to be the third headliner. As much suprising as Motorhead not being headliner last year..
