nothing is announced in lebanon yet, as for the dates, for sure all on the same day, as far as i can see, moonspell will open for to/die/for who in turn will open for the strokes which is bullshit IMHO.

moonspell deserve to be the leading act here ..

Looks like it is a 3 day event, with 50 bands participating.

Weird it is in about 2 weeks and the promotion for this event is kinda lame. This should be better advertised.

well iam sure most of the 50 bands will be local or form the reagion, and thus most will be either cheap nu-metal (not the good nu-metal), rock, alternative, and for sure the CURE wanabees.

all in all, i guess seeing moonspell live is worth this thing..

PROVE ME WRONG FESTIVAL, PLEASE

oki so the bands list has been posed on the website, it seems to be a music festival and not a metal festival. most of the bands are from europe. not a bad start, but would love to see a full day of metal if it would be possible..

anyway lets hope and see what happens

yayks, moved on such a short period to the actual dates, was there a reason why it was postponed to the following weekend?

Edit: Some bad news, according to Bravewords To/Die/For has cancelled its participation:

Quote:
Greetings from Finland,

First the bad news. We had to cancel the Lebanon show (originally scheduled for August 24th as part of the Big Bang Festival), because they changed the dates and we are not available on those new days. It is very sad but the studio is booked for us at the same time as the new dates (August 28th to 31st).

The other thing is that there is a lot of new stuff coming and it's most important for us to handle the new songs first

still no news, no commercials, no radio ospots. how is this so. i mean even though moonspell is not THAT famous STILLLLLLLLLL ... what about the 50 other bands. why do i have a feeling that this will go on and not alot will come becasue of bad planning and not enough marketing on it.

bullcrap ... the reason why they canceled the festival was becasue they didnt do anything right. not the political situation. it cannot be any calmer now.

damn idiots dontknow how to do anything, and plus getting 50 bands/acts in just 3 weeks time is near imposibble. dont blame the politics on this, you make us look worse.

I think the organizers did not know what they were doing, nothing was right, the website just got working and not even completely just less than 10 days from the original date. And yeah getting 65 bands (it was 50 they added 15 more!) in three days w/o promoting the event is dumb, it takes many months to promote it to get the fans and sponsors in. How in hell were they gonna pay for all the air tickets/hotels/catering etc?! This is terrible.
