    2017 Set Length Speculation

    by Jotunheimr » Thu Jul 07, 2016 10:48 pm

    It's never too soon to start speculating about set lengths for the 2017 lineup. The first band announced for 2015 was Blind Guardian, and Iced Earth for 2016. Both were given headliner time slots. Anthrax will almost certainly be given a headline set. Will we see another big name in this first round? The first round of bands for 2015 had two headliners (Blind Guardian and Apocalyptica), and the same goes for 2016 as well (Iced Earth and Children of Bodom).

    Here is a history of "headliners" over the years from what I can gather. Headliners are any band that receives a set length longer than 60 minutes.

    2011
    90 min. - Blind Guardian, Saxon
    75 min. - Amon Amarth, Testament

    2012
    90 min. - Nightwish, Venom
    75 min. - Children of Bodom

    2013
    75 min. - Helloween, Rage & Lingua Mortis Orchestra

    2014
    75 min. - Fear Factory, Symphony X

    2015
    75 min. - Apocalyptica, Blind Guardian, Venom

    2016
    75 min. - Cradle of Filth, Children of Bodom, Iced Earth

    I think Anthrax is still the only headliner announced so far so I'm assuming we will probably get two more "biggish" names. Not sure if some would make an argument for Kamelot being a headliner....but they've been on the cruise before and only received hour long sets.

    If the highly speculated Amon Amarth is to play, I would imagine they get the other headlining slot along with Anthrax

    If Andy is sitting on an Amon Amarth announcement, he really needs to announce them right before public sales start. And yeah, I'd guess they'd get 75 minutes...at least.

    I don't think Andy's overworked employees would be prepared for the sheer number of bookings if this were to happen.

    For historical comparison, 2016 we had 3 bands with 75 minute sets, 17 with 60 minute sets, and 40 with 45 minute sets.

    According to the schedule, they actually had one hour set and one 45min set in 2014.

    Looking at this through the lens of last year I'm not sure if some of those bands will receive 60 minute sets. Last year we had Vader (Death metal legends) and Insomnium (one of the most highly requested bands) only receive 45 minute sets....but then again....last years lineup was ridiculously deep.

    I think it's too early to call on some of these bands until we see how the whole lineup shapes up. But I'm not so sure Kalmah and Nile will end up with hour long sets. If we were to insert any of these 60 minute bands into last years lineup I only see maybe five or six of them actually getting hour long sets.

    Last year Delain only received 45 minute sets....I place Amaranthe on a similar level so I see the logic in thinking they might get 45 minute sets. But Amaranthe is doing headline North American tours of mid-sized club venues, whereas Delain usually only comes around as a supporting/opening band. Amaranthe may wind up getting hour long sets.

    And I hope you are wrong about Death Angel. Considering the depth (or lack thereof) in this years lineup so far... I'd be shocked if they didn't get hour long sets.

    Let's swap Amaranthe and Kalmah. Judging by Amaranthe's placement on posters for other fests, they will easily get 60 minutes. Kalmah is lesser known than Insomnium who played 45 minute sets last year, so Kalmah probably will as well.

    I'd think Gojira will join Anthrax & Testament as a member of the 75 Minutes group.

    Don't think they are big enough for that - we have several "bigger" (more Spotify listeners) names onbroad already.
    I'm still rather confident that Amon Amarth will be the third headliner :viking:

    I'd agree - a definite 60 minute set band, doubtful of headliner status. Numerous other bands already on the lineup have more facebook likes, more last.fm listeners, etc as well.

    Agreed, no way Gojira would be getting the top slot. I would suggest Arch Enemy will get the 75 minute slot based on what I've seen at Wacken last week. They had an impressive level of stage production. At least here in North America I would think they are about at par with Children Of Bodom in popularity. For the record, Arch Enemy is a 0 setter for me.

    Hard to say the rationale on the headline sets. Iced Earth and Cradle of Filth are certainly recognizable names, but both of them have seen a decline in popularity over the last 10 years or so. They are both playing to pretty small crowds these days. However, they both got 75 minutes last year. On the other hand, Gojira hasn't been around as long, but their popularity is certainly on the rise and there is a lot of buzz around the band. They are drawing bigger crowds now than either of the previously mentioned bands.

    I don't think Arch Enemy will be getting a headliner slot. The names we see headline are the really BIG, well known bands that you don't necessarily be a metalhead to have heard of. I don't put Arch Enemy in that camp, nor do I think Gojira is there either. Makes me less sure about Testament, maybe Anthrax is the only headliner we've had announced so far?

    I'm also planting my flag in the Amon Amarth for Headliner camp. They were teased so hard.

    But Venom has gotten a headline spot. You really think they are more well known than Testament?

    Interesting point. I probably should reconsider my Arch Enemy point. My speculation is based on what I've seen in the Toronto scene. Since 70k is a collection of 3000 of the most diehard metal from around the world, a different set of rules apply. If I'm not mistaken, didn't Therion get a 75 minute set in 2015? They don't draw in Toronto at all relative to an Arch enemy or even devil driver for that matter. Its anyone's guess. Anthrax seems like the only sure thing at this point.

    Jon told me after the 2011 cruise that iced earth wouldn't do it again as there was no money in it.

    I reckon andy tempted him back by offering IE headline status.

    Just like I reckon Unearth got a headline length set to get them to do the cruise at short notice.

    Does headlining guarantee being paid more? Or does it mean playing longer for no extra pay? In that case, I think most bands would prefer 45 minute sets because it gives them more time to enjoy the boat. After all, this cruise is more a vacation than it is work for the bands involved.

    I would think that they would definitely get paid more.

    I also think that it is a bit of a prestige thing too - would feel good to be one of the headliners :)

    Its not just about having a holiday. Its a great opportunity for publicity. The amount of coverage in the press, exposure to fans who may not normally check your band out but will because "they are one of the headliners", etc.

    I get your point, but headliners on 70k aren't really given much more emphasis than the other bands. Most festivals will list them at the top of the billing with a larger logo, have them play last, and specifically announce them as a headliner. 70k just throws them in with the rest of the band list (alphabetically), and we decipher who is 'headlining' by looking at the running order 1 day before the cruise.

    I wonder if Andy would offer Grave Digger a headlining spot to make up for them not getting to play their pool deck set in 2015? I remember he formally apologised to them for it on social media.

    I reckon andy tempted him back by offering IE headline status.

    Just like I reckon Unearth got a headline length set to get them to do the cruise at short notice.


    I wonder if Andy would offer Grave Digger a headlining spot to make up for them not getting to play their pool deck set in 2015? I remember he formally apologised to them for it on social media.


    Amorphis didn't get their pool deck set either that year, correct?

    Heh I remember that one. I totally believed them when they told that story.
    Told it to a friend some hours later and he was just like "uhm, dude, are you drunk!?" Well apparently - I was :cheers:

    I can't remember a UMC cruise that didn't have some kind of alteration to the schedule at some point or another. Technical glitches, weather, issues finding passed out artists...... I never once found myself worrying about who was gonna get to play for how long. I have always been mostly concerned with "will they play at all?"

    Last round Holy Moses got a 20 min pool deck set. :cry:

    So, any updates regarding these speculations? I'm too lazy and/or not capable of pulling it of, but Mr. Statsman got them pretty damn close in 2016.

    UPDATED

    Here is my take based on historical evidence for those bands that have been on before, and my own judgement for the first-timers.

    Had to add from Demolition Hammer onwards to my initial listing. I think Marduk will get an hour (they got an hour in 2011) , and given their popularity I would think Scar Symmetry and Mors will also get 1 hour sets. The rest of the recent announcements, 45 minutes.

    75 MINUTES
    Anthrax
    Testament

    60 MINUTES
    Orphaned Land
    Suffocation
    Kamelot
    Amorphis
    Therion
    Annihilator
    Grave Digger
    Nile
    Haggard
    Arch Enemy
    Devildriver
    Uli Jon Roth
    Amaranthe
    Marduk
    Scar Symmetry
    Mors Principium Est

    45 MINUTES
    Death Angel (they got 60 minutes in 2011 but one 45min and one 60min in 2014)
    Equilibrium
    Kalmah
    Stuck Mojo
    Powerglove
    Dying Fetus
    Cruachan
    Omnium Gatherum
    Draconian
    Saltatio Mortis
    Xandria
    Revocation
    Stam1na
    Moonsorrow
    Unleashed
    Serenity
    Orden Ogan
    Demolition Hammer
    Vreid
    Pain
    Grave
    Psycroptic
    Avatarium
    Misery Loves Co
    Cattle Decapitation

    Remembering 2016 we had 3 bands with 75 minute sets, 17 with 60 minutes, 40 with 45 minutes.

    So if my above is correct we can expect one more band to be worth of 75 minute sets (Amon Amarth?), 1 worthy of 60 minutes and the rest 45 minutes.

    At this point, I would think the historical question that would be most telling is, how close to sailing has a headliner ever been announced? Much like everyone else, I have my fingers crossed for that Amon Amarth announcement. However, as the days pass, that just seems less and less realistic. As a promoter, you pay a band like Amon Amarth to drive ticket sales. But with the cruise setting sail in 35 days, what impact on ticket sales would they even have?
