I Don't mind alternative bands, but the main demographic will want to listen to Metal including myself so that's why I'm hoping for. And a wide range of Metal sub genres exists so it could be good for that too. And they did mention Metal and Thrash bands will be included as well. Hoping for Teatament!
And James does look very skinny, too skinny IMO he should go hit the gym it will fill him up and he's older now so it will be beneficial on many levels.
I get you man, sort of. I don't listen to much metal myself... Testament would be awesome. They seem to be fans of quite "arty" metal bands, throwing a few more of them in there would be good. I just don't want it to be like every other boring, generic metal festival...
I think they've widened their potential demographic by including the likes of A Place To Bury Strangers, Arctic Monkeys, Fucked Up, Liturgy etc, opened themselves up to a more diverse group of people.
