    Headliners?

    by General Zod » Tue Jul 11, 2017 5:12 am

    What is everyone's thoughts on where we stand with respect to headliners. Do we have any or all of them yet? Based on Last.fm, last year's headliners in order of "listeners":

    Anthrax: 834K
    Arch Enemy: 622K
    Kamelot: 421K
    Gojira: 368K

    This year's announced bands:

    Sepultura: 852K
    Sonata Arctica: 611K
    Dark Tranquillity: 433K
    Meshuggah: 413K
    Cannibal Cirpse: 400K
    Korpiklaani: 399K
    Rhapsody: 331K
    In Extremo: 269K
    Primal Fear: 203K
    Enslaved: 178K

    Sepultura's 852K has to be taken with a grain of salt, as they're clearly not the same attraction without the Cavalera brothers.

    It seems like the first announcement always gets a headline length set, so I have money on Meshuggah. Testament has 511k and did not get a headline slot, but maybe that's because they already had Anthrax.

    In my honest opinion we don't have any real headlining material so far.

    Sepultura was cool twenty years ago, but they aren't nearly as big as they used to be.
    Same goes for Sonata Arctica although for different reasons.

    The closest we have to a headliner might be Dark Tranquillity.
    Rhapsody might also get headliner status just because :ugeek:

    Sepultura might be the most recognizable name if you surveyed a Metallica show but that doesn't necessarily mean they are over with the 70K crowd. They will be getting a decent slot though much like Testament last year.

    My prediction would be Rhapsody just because of the significance of their first "farewell" tour. If I had to predict a second I would say Meshuggah.

    Who do you predict will be getting the bogus early morning or graveyard shifts? I'm calling Goatwhore will be playing on the pool deck at around 4 am on day 3. Gyze will be getting a 10 am deal in day 2 or 4.

    If memory serves right Venom were announced pretty late and still headlined in 2015.

    you should use Spotify instead, since, you know, people use it and all. Last.fm :lol:

    Sepultura had a 1 hour set on Barge to Hell though I remember at least the pool deck show was packed. They seemed to be huge with the ship's crew. Will have to see how the rest of the lineup shakes out but for now I'd say Sepultura and Meshuggah.
    I should get around to updating my signature

    I think we can safely add Sabaton to the list of headliners.

    That's what I'm thinking.

    The last.fm listener count for Sabaton is: 369,189. Honestly surprised, I would have thought their number would be higher than that.

    Over 930,000 on Spotify, around double what it was a year ago IIRC.

    They had 60 minutes back in 2013 but looking at listener numbers they are probably the biggest band so far.

    I would personally think that Meshuggah, Sabaton, and Kreator make sense. The first band announced has always been a headliner if I am not mistaken?

    That is my understanding as well.

    This would actually be a pretty good mix of genres for headliners too, if that's the case. Very few bands could get announced that would offset any of these three.

    My guess is Meshuggah, Sabaton and Sepultura. Sure, Sepultura is no where near as big as they used to be, but the same could be said for Anthrax, and they headlined this year.

    The major difference is that Anthrax has 4/5 of its original lineup and has had 2 reunion/comeback albums that have been very hyped and well received. If Sepultura did a reunion with the Cavalera's, it would absolutely be huge.. however, the fan base that cares about anything Sepultura has put out since 1996, or with this lineup, is pretty limited.

    Also, they didn't get 75 minutes on the Barge to Hell, and that was all extreme underground bands on that lineup.

    Fair enough, that makes sense. Also, who were the headliners on Barge to Hell?

    I reckon its definitely Meshuggah, Kreator and Sabaton and I don't really like Meshuggah and Sabaton, just think they are the biggest bands.
