    We're both maybes. The lineup isn't that good. But I'll be in town for the weekend, so at the very least I'll see everyone after the bands each day. I'm not decided yet on whether I'm buying a ticket or not, so we'll see...soon. :beerwink:

    Well, they say that it's always hot when it's Tuska for some reason ;) Last year it was a few weeks later, but it was 30 degrees and I was melting! But it was really lovely in the night as you didn't need a jacket :)

    Well, usually during Tuska it's more like 25 to 30 Celsius in the daytime.

    Seen ND a bunch of times already, but better than the last few announcements. Arcturus would be cool as it seems that I won't be seeing them at Brutal Assault.

    Yeah, a friend of mine writes for that zine too, so I think it's a pretty solid rumor. :beerwink:


    As for the weather, I think the average temp for July is around 18 C - and that's low because in the nighttime the temp is about 15 degrees or so. July highs are mostly above 20 and even above 30. Temp over 30 makes Tuska a painful festival (tuska = pain, agony).

    It should be Velhopeto as in Finnish the two words have to be joined to give it accurate meaning. Velho peto would make no sense, but velhopeto would mean a person (?) who's both a beast and a wizard. :beerwink:

    sweet! yeah, when we switched to your music at gnoffi's place, i dug it, remember? i just don't like the super happy folk, but i like keybroads and some folk influence if the music is heavy/dark.

    and as someone who usually watches TONS of bands at fests, any beer time i get is usually bonus....i did see 33 sets onbroad this year! my beer time simply replaced my sleep time in the wee hours of the night/morning!

    Me too :mrgreen: If I am having fun talking to people, I would only leave the beer tent for a must see band. I've had festivals where I've seen no more than 4-5 bands for one reason or another :oops:

    I usually prioritize away bands so I can have more beer time :party: :stagger:


    Me too :mrgreen: If I am having fun talking to people, I would only leave the beer tent for a must see band. I've been to festivals where I've seen no more than 4-5 bands for one reason or another :oops:

    it's because you glorious Europeans are spoiled - you get great festivals all the time and so don't feel the need to watch all the bands.

    a lot of these amazing bands rarely come to the states, so i feel like i had better watch them! we don't get very good festivals over here, only a few and they could be MUCH better.

    but who knows, i'm also entitled to check out a song or two, then run back to the beer tent if i'm not blown away by a band! :cheers:

    Yeah it depends what people are going for really. I can drink beer at home, I can't see half those bands at home so I watch as many bands as is humanly possible at any festival I go to.

    true dat, unless you're also drinking beers with people you only see 1-2 times a year...then the choice becomes much more difficult. :cry: :cry: :cry:

    Not at Tuska or many other scandinavian festivals, as you can only drink beer in the designed areas and not in front of the stages ;)

    Neither in Denmark or in most other european countries, but Sweden and Finland have strict laws regarding alcohol, trying to prevent people from drinking too much, I guess (not that it works though!).
