12:00 - Marcel Hubregtse SB is 92 euros in presale for the upcoming edition. So that most probably means it will cost 120 at the door. Hence the 40 euros a day. And for me festivals are ALL about the music.
11:58 - Spirit Molecule Talking about booking bands and stuff, I would love to sit down with the guys at hellfest and pick their brains. Booking and band management interests me quite a bit
11:55 - Spirit Molecule Well Metallica's show here in 2011 was about 100K USD, maybe a bit more, but no 100K EUR for sure. As I said, a lot of bands cut their fees for Indian shows as it's new territory for them. Also I'm taking just fees not flights etc
11:55 - LeKiwi Screw big names, festivals isn't all about the music :P Also SB is not 40 euros a day. I bought my tickets for 75 euros in '11 and '12
11:54 - Marcel Hubregtse Hellfest's value for money is greater than that of SB and BA cause you also have to take into account the organization and such and especially BA is poorly organized and SB isn't too great either.
11:54 - Spirit Molecule Where else would you get to watch big names that hellfest has this year at a single festival. SB and BA also cater to a different audience, so they won't ever get headliners like hellfest does
