Outside of metal and some EDM, the average start time for lineup details and tickets for festivals seems to be 3-4 months out. So right now would totally be AVERAGE if you base it on all genres/festivals...
Outstanding! Rav did an excellent job, so fun!

Let's look at some of the most popular music festivals in Canada, since I'm Canadian;
- Amnesia Rockfest: June 14th+; tickets early March, lineup late April.
- Heavy Montréal: July 27th; Slayer & tickets in December, lineup announced mid-February.
- Ottawa Bluesfest: July 4th; lineup & tickets in early March.
- Osheaga: August 2nd; lineup & tickets in late March.
- Shambhala: August 9th; lineup late March, tickets 10 months in advance.
- Veld: August 2nd; lineup mid-March, tickets March 21st.
When you start looking at slightly smaller festivals, and despite 70k being an international festival - remember there's still only 3,000 tickets, the window gets smaller. Around here: Evolve, Future Forest, Celtic Colours, & Halifax Pop Explosion all with a mere 1-3 months notice for lineup and tickets.
I really don't understand why people think this is so late. Get out of the metal bubble for a moment and look around.
Yeah mate, I agree, same with Dark MoFo (Hymns to the Dead) in Hobart, Tasmania, but they always let you know that for that festival, in June every year, thay always announce the line up on April 1st. But at least we know that each year.
But with 70k, it's a whole different beast.
Imagine Wacken each year, of not knowing and guessing like this madness we have here with this cruise.
For me, I am 9, 331 miles away from Miami and all this guessing of if/when/if/who/what the hell is going on crap, bad exchange rates, Aussie/US dollar, asking time off work, is it worth it this time....those sorta thoughts and the bands means everything in making a decision.
Anyway, so far, it's 70000 Tons of Sadness right now.
Go Sens Go!
HOWEVER, I will agree that due to the extra logistics involved with this being centered around a cruise, and $$$$, I would say that I believe UMC *should* do bands and tickets much earlier than the overall festival average.
I know we are all pretty confident 70k will happen, but I'm half ready to jump ship to Full Metal Cruise. I want the to do Full Metal Mountain again cause that looked badass.cowboy71 wrote: ↑Sat Sep 28, 2019 6:17 pm70K is not a regular festival. It's not even a regular SMALL festival.
It is a cruise. So if you are to compare apples to apples, you need to compare it to the other cruises out there. Lets look at the 'big four':
Monsters of Rock
Full Metal Cruise
SHIPROCKED - Sailing Feb 1-6. Bands announced June 2019
MONSTERS OF ROCK - Sailing Feb 8-13. Bands started getting announced May 2019
MEGACRUISE - Sailing Oct 13-18. Bands started getting announced February 2019
FULL METAL CRUISE 2020 - Sailing Sep 23-28. Fuck don't have to check when they started announcing that one because its a YEAR AWAY and they already have bands!!
