Line up is looking pretty juicy,AC/DC will be immense,so hopefully Metallica do,and I can always hope for Soundgarden.
Megadeth is also a very good prospect,maybe Anthrax and Slayer could join aswell,like the Sonisphere in Poland,but nonetheless the line up is shaping up to be pretty special.

AC/DC, Them Crooked Vultures are 2 bands i would really like to see live, AC/DC especially. Lineup looks nice, just need to persuade my mates to come now and i think i got an exam on the friday 11th in the afternoon which is kinda ********. Really want to go. When will full ineup be announced?

I have to say, Sonisphere looks better so far this year. Although I'd give an arm to see Them Crooked Vultures.

Sounds about right.

They purchased more land and expanded the camping by another few thousand after tickets sold out last year. Might do the same again this year.
Yeah, they needed to last year, the campsite was packed, especially the ones closeset to the entrance. Wasn't too bad towards the back thankfully!

Yeah, I think I was in Orange. Was a nightmare walking there on the first day, then having to wait for them to open the space for us! I kind of preffered it though, it was much calmer so there was no worry about fires on the last night.

Aye, i was in orange too, we set up camp just as it opened.

Absolute nightmare. Back in 2006 i was in red camp which is where orange was last year.

Absolute nightmare.

Same pretty much, it was either head to I think it was white, and HOPE there was space or just wait for orange to open, so we did that! Meant we got a decent amount of space for our group too!

They have a special section for anyone under 18. Don't worry there is a bouncy castle and a ball pool.

Not too sure about Download but Sonisphere was amazing as a 17 year old (i'll be 18 by soni this year ). As long as you don't cause any trouble when you're drinking security couldn't care less. Obviously buying alcohol might be a bit more difficult but pretty much everyone will be more than happy to help (myself included...for a fee:yep: )

Hmmm.... I dont like the rest of that lineup. I'll only go for AC/DC. Sonisphere looks tons better (Rammstein and Iron Maiden hellooo?!).

Download > Soni anyway tbh.
