Yeah, they're all plausible shouts. Killswitch are doing Download, and Steel Panther and Alter Bridge will also probably end up doing it. Darkness had sold out shows here recently (the Cork one was, at least) and are on somewhat of a minor upswing in terms of their novelty appeal.

You can fit a handful of tents and a dozen people in the space of 1 campervan though, it's expensive but campervan tickets have basically always sold out at festivals so they're going to keep charging a premium

About as good as you could have reasonably hoped for. Those top few bands flesh it out very nicely indeed.

We've got ourselves a metal festival.

I was in two minds but now I'm in one mind. This is shaping up to be, hopefully, a decent festival

Funny story about The Distillers, well, Brodi anyway.

Think it was around 2005/6 and i was at Donington, had a backstage pass, now it was a bog standard pass, no access to bands dressing room areas.

At end of the night was drinking with a couple of mates, one of whom is my oldest pal from school and is very big in the rock scene in uk, he had a mate with him who i never knew, this mate said fcuk this, we'll go to the free bar, he had an AAA pass and could escort 3 others through.

We went into the band area, Brodi was sat outside her dressing room so i got a beer and sat down, she was completely and utterly twisted, crying constantly saying that Josh hadn't called while one of her crew kept reminding her of time zones. Glad she seems to have cleaned herself up.

Also a few minutes later Steve-O and Pontius totally trashed Electric Six's dressing room which was amusing to watch

They've definitely got the bands anyway. Hopefully they can pull the rest of it together.
