    I really find it hard to believe they are still booking bands. Not many bands can pick up and be ready to play that fast. Think about it, how much time have each of us planned for this thing?

    If that's how they are running things I am even more worried about giving them my money up front. Not a good business model IMO.

    Actually a good portion of bands don't know they're doing the cruise until we do.

    Diamond Head in 2016 for example were contacted about a week before the cruise.
    Same thing with Ghoul a couple of years ago
    I believe that’s accurate. I spoke to the bassist from Ghoul at a Chicago gig and he said they were definitely contacted a day or two before their announcement.

    Yeah I've spoken with a number of bands that were announced late in the piece down through the years and every one has had the same story. Not "yeah we got told about this months ago!", but rather "yeah we only got told a few days ago".

    Also heard more than one case of "yeah we got asked, but couldn't do it due to the short notice" down the years as well.

    I've heard this many times. Once it was from a band that is playing this year.

    ...so we're here, 9 bands left and I'm heading to Miami in 4 days. So. Fucking. Lame.

    Thank you, expert witness.
    I would like to call to the attention of the jury that Sub-Lieutenant bodomdragon, to the own admittance of his signature, has already lived through the cruises of 2015 and 2016, which were much worse in terms of the situation he decries.
    I rest my case.

    Indeed.
    But having a worse preceding situation doesn't make this one more acceptable or tolerable.

    Alright.
    Accused Andreas Piller, aka “Andy”, a jury of your peers has declared you guilty of willful withholding of information.
    Consequently, you are here and now condemned to the immediate release of announcements, all of them having been ruled to have been unlawfully withdrawn from the public.
    And so it has been said, and so it shall be done.

    Just an example of how other festivals do:
    Scandinavia Deathfest released full line-up and tickets some 9 months before the event.

    The 1000+ tickets then sold out in less than a week.
    That's how pretty much every festival does it. I remember 2015 and as much fun as we had, the lack of announcements was the main reason we didn't book 2016. I don't understand why they do it this way. They actually lose negotiation power when they have to get bands at the last minute. The whole thing is bizarre.

    Not trying to bash the whole thing, because on the ship everything is great (except the shirt line), but this has been an ongoing issue since the beginning and its not getting better.

    My guess is that Andy doesn’t pay most bands, and he waits until the end to either scoop bands willing to desperately play for free, or draw from his emergency coffers to secure good last minute bands.

    ...
    Just on that point.

    UNEARTH in 2014 were a, by not just my opinion but the opinion of many many others, bizarre choice of band to get a 'headline' set of 75 minutes.

    The only logical reason I can think of for that, was because they were booked at the last minute and it was a carrot dangled at them to get them on.

    I would hazard a guess that this year would be exponentially harder to get last minute bands on board, given the potential travel hiccups in the US (due to the shutdown). Especially for bands coming from overseas.

    Bands that might have typically jumped at the chance might not be willing (or even able) to do a quick turn-around trip to the US.

    I've heard this many times. Once it was from a band that is playing this year.

    ...so we're here, 9 bands left and I'm heading to Miami in 4 days. So. Fucking. Lame.
    Where's everyone from when I complained earlier this year, telling you that it doesn't matter because Andy always delivers and the cruise is great and perfect?
    Here I am!
    But seriously, I could use a fucking announcement today, even though I know the boat is going to be great.

    Actually a good portion of bands don't know they're doing the cruise until we do.

    Diamond Head in 2016 for example were contacted about a week before the cruise.
    Yep. Wintersun was booked the Sunday before sailing in 2015, and were famously announced during the beach party the night before embark.

    Helstar was booked and announced within three days of sailing back in 2017 (I think).

    I'm not making excuses for Andy here; there is NO reason whatsoever that these tiresome little details like, oh, say, booking bands couldn't be done well in advance.

    Not sure on the delay on announcing the next band. That one should have been booked prior to the last announcement.

    It would be kind of limiting if he had to try to find a band to sign on that started with the letter 'B'.

    For the most part, yes the line-up will be good to great. Question is, could it be even better if the bends were all booked well in advance. What have, or will, we miss due to dragging it out.

    I can imagine the disappointment if, for example, Borknagar or Blood Red Throne were asked, but declined due to late notice.

    We're quite sure this exact situation has happened before.

    Before 70k 2017 (or 2018) Borknagar were printed and spoiled early in MetalHammer's ad for 70k, right when we got the next hint of a "B". Whatever happened, that announcement never came, and actually started the two months of silence we're so used to every year.

    When that broke, it was Benediction (again, IIRC), that was announced, not Borknagar. Common speculation here is that it took Andy a while to find a "B" band to replace Borknagar because he had already spoiled the B clue :lol:

    Just an example but last year EXODUS was announced a day before boarding and they even had a special boat tshirt on merch, meaning they obviously had time to plan ahead and knew about it way before they got announced.

    ONE WEEK TO GO

    2018 we had another 6 from this point
    2017 we only had 2 to go
    2016 we had 10
    2015 we had 16 to go
    2014 we had 5 to go
    2013 we had 7
    2012 we had 5 to go
    2011 we knew the entire lineup!

    So we are currently ranking 3rd worst in regards to most bands left to announce with a week to go (equal 2rd if we actually get 61 bands have 10 to go).

    2015 we got 9 in the last 4 days, 2016 it was 9 in the last 5. So fairly recent history indicates that once we've reached this point we might not see any announcements until the weekend.

    ONE WEEK TO GO

    2018 we had another 6 from this point
    2017 we only had 2 to go
    2016 we had 10
    2015 we had 16 to go
    2014 we had 5 to go
    2013 we had 7
    2012 we had 5 to go
    2011 we knew the entire lineup!

    So we are currently ranking 3rd worst in regards to most bands left to announce with a week to go (equal 2rd if we actually get 61 bands have 10 to go).

    2015 we got 9 in the last 4 days, 2016 it was 9 in the last 5. So fairly recent history indicates that once we've reached this point we might not see any announcements until the weekend.
    The same topic that we talked about earlier, many outstanding bands and people already traveling.
    Completely inconsiderate

    70000Tons - 2018 - No

    70000Tons - 2020 - No

    Just the thought of being Andy right now, with 9 spots open and potentially no clue who's going to fill them gives me anxiety. I'm surprised that guy doesn't break out in hives every January with all this last minute shit.

    The cruise has been fantastic every single year and he has never failed to book the number he said he would (and sometimes one or two extra) but any last minute emergency cancellation that necessitated sailing with under 60 bands would be a severe hit to his credibility. I get the idea that waiting on announcements is part of the "fun" but I can't believe he's really flying by the seat of his pants with no plan!

    Then again maybe he does have his shit together and we just don't know what we're talking about.

    Going a week without an announcement at this point is pretty ridiculous. I hope what's coming is something real and not just some lazy ass whatever was easiest booking...

    All the bands are confirmed months in advance especially with the amount of paperwork required for bands to perform, flights etc... No one is booking bands for this right now or looking for bands, we are just not privy to the final info, they do this to draw out excitement and build anticipation.
