Nothing grabs me just yet.
It will either be this festival again, or the Hard Rock Hell in Ibiza I think.

Mmm already some NICE big names such as AC/DC and Them Crooked Vultures. Wolfmother live always rocks as well as do the Stone Temple Pilots.

Meh. ok i guess.

although i think i'd be more interested in the earlier bands than headliners.

imo Hellfest wins 2010 hand's down. Ulver + only Godflesh appearance > whatever else.

Ulver?! Hellfest?! :O I want that.

But maybe I'll take my vacation in England :p AC/DC, Deftones, Motörhead, Wolfmother AND Volbeat! Maybe not that extreme (at all) but its all very, very good festival stuff

haha, from your usual posts i would have never guessed you like AC/DC.. wait, their 90s stuff and Stiff Upper Lip suck and their Bon Scott material is by far the best right?

Yes, anyone will agree on that.
Although Back In Black is great (but already mostly written with Bon) and For Those About To Rock is decent as well. But after that it went downhill quickly

but what do you think about their choice of live songs? imo they totally make up for any generic shit they may have made on weaker albums (to tell the truth i haven't had the patience to check out whole albums by them, i'm pretty much pleased with their 20-strong setlist)

The AC/DC Australian tour next month sold out so quickly it broke the record for the fastest event to sell out ever in our country. I wonder how long it will take for all the Download tickets to go haha. I probably wouldn't bother seeing them live though. They've never really impressed me with their material.

EDIT: Wait...Wolfmother? Wtf? Most overrated band ever. They're actually playing as support to AC/DC over here. No band should get as much attention with only one album...then eventually now a second I think as they do.
