09:43 - psykometal That should give you a better idea idea of why said festivals are so epicly expensive. Not to mention the fact that they only happen once a year, for 3 days. They have to make sure they get enough revenue to be able to do it next
09:42 - psykometal I recently learned, through unnamed means, that the really big name bands, like Metallica and such, ask 1 million+ euors to do festival gigs like Wacken and the sort.
09:24 - Spirit Molecule Festivals like Hellfest and Wacken will cost a lot more as the bands they get to headline are quite big. Bigger the band more the cost to bring them in, plus with bigger bands production costs usually go up
07:15 - Monolithic You really should check out pop concerts here in Dubai. :D
04:58 - Redn1ght So... Why do the Rock/Metal festivals cost so much btw? They need to milk money? :p
Written by Valentin B on 18.11.2011 at 14:28 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.
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
