    Whitesnake
    Motley Crue
    Korn
    Limp Bizkit
    Pendulem
    Dragonforce
    Devil Driver



    Getting better
    The only groups I would be remotely interested in seeing in that line up would be Prodigy and possibly Pendulem. The rest I would avoid like a rash in fear of getting bottled by a fat kneckbeard yelling TIMMMAAYY!

    The only vaguley rock/metal festival I went to was Reading 2006 and we only went for Sunday evening to see Pearl Jam. I'm never going again.
    The place was like a warzone! Everyone was burning everything and going mad because it was the last day. I couldn't get the smell of burning plastic out of my hair for weeks. Not a good vibe at all.

    I've had a much better time at the past two Glastonbury festivals despite the rain and mud. Last year was good though, lots of sunshine, lots of different types of music and all night parties. The silent disco's are great and go on til the wee hours. Everyone wears wireless headphones to listen to the DJ so everyone can party and not keep other campers awake. Wicked idea. It's so weird walking past the tent and watching hundreds of people dance to silence.

    Its a shame u judge all metal festivals by 1 bad expiriance
    (however reading/leeds isnt metal and that anticts there are childish and annoying, camping away from the arena helps)
    and i am really looking forward to the prodigy!!
    dont like the majority of bands that play glastonbury and t in the park etc so thoes festivals wouldnt b much fun to me. silent disco was at leeds last couple of years and enjoyed that but the best (none band) was the bike shows at download loads of ace tricks and stunts being performed all weekend

    Totally agree with you there. And the cinema tent is awesome. Shaun of the Dead on the big screen Only let down was people cheering when planes went over head, but even that was funny in its own little way.

    I think without all the (careful) fun it's not as much of an atmosphere.. and even with some of the wreckless fun its still a laugh and can be funny.
    But perhaps I'm just one of those guys who will do stupid things and only think of the consequences once its done and laughing.

    I haven't been in this job for long, not quite sure how to book time off.

    Do I send an email to the head, a letter, ask in person?
