    Fresh ideas for 2014

    by cowboy71 » Wed Feb 06, 2013 6:57 pm

    So this year had some great new additions - the talented Vika, Jeff's All Star Jam, violin clinic.

    What are your cool/crazy ideas for next year?

    I have one - how about a FEATURED ARTIST? Art is a huge component of heavy metal. Who here has bought an album purely due to its cover? *raises hand*

    So yeah, how cool would it be to have someone like RODNEY MATTHEWS on broad to do a bit of a clinic, maybe do a 70k artwork to be auctioned for charity even?

    Thoughts?

    Another idea -FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHER!

    Obviously a heap of profesh photographers on broad, and a heap of amateur snappers like me who would appreciate some pointers from the experts :)

    Not crazy about the artwork or photo idea since it doesn't appeal to me, but cool to those who would enjoy it - I just wouldn't want it as a single announcement.

    Vika was a step in the right direction; next up is having an orchestra playing Pirates of the Caribbean 24/7 on the Centrum staircase.

    Allow me to book half the bands on Barge, since I'm fucking awesome and all that :death: :deathmetal: :death:

    I myself have no interest in photography or artwork or Van Canto or piano stuff.

    More bands playing special setlists though :mrgreen:

    Yes. At the very least this song needs to be on a playlist.

    I would be down for Vegan Black Metal Chef and/or Regular Ordinary Swedish Mealtime.

    I would also like some sort of heavy metal scavenger hunt, as discussed in previous years, just for the kicks.

    Oliver Palatoi of Kamelot would play it during their sets last year. It needs to be a permanent fixture and should probably play every year when we embark on our journey.

    Has there been a vocal clinic in the past? If not, maybe that is something that could be added.

    An acoustic all-star jam?

    What about a Heavy Metal trivia style game with prizes?

    Sabina from Holy Moses did a vocal clinic on Barge. I like the idea of Trivia except I'm not really sure when they would fit that in.

    Metal trivia in schoner bar every afternoon with cool prices.

    Flip the cup competition, this was brought by the scandinavian vikings since the first cruise 2011, played it every since, so much fun. We should have a tournament some day in the moonlight restaurant or the restaurant which is closed where the meet and greet is hold. Take alot of tables 5 people in every team for example and see who wins the glory and honor.

    A metal concert during the day when we stay at some location. And stay little longer than 5 hours.

    Turisas, Behemoth, Dimmu Borgir, Dalriada, Motorhead, Vader, Arch Enemy, Abinchova, Northland, Sear Bliss, Watain, Slayer, Raubtier, Immortal, Xandria, Fear Factory, Rammstein, Running Wild

    - Metal Trivia sounds like a good idea. Prizes can range from beer to booze and backwards

    - no shows after 3am...I really had to fight with those early morning shows. Holy Grail played at 1:45 am and 3:45 am (afair). Or maybe have those late niters play the other set earlier.

    - 5 days cruise means more time and more fun.

    quite a few nice ideas - but they are by far not necessary and would mostly not even be an improvement
    the clinics seem to be very interesting for the musicians - so, that would add something special and they'd get my vote
    ...but you'll get my veto on all contests - even the bellyflop-contest is unbearable ("anatherroundapplaus")
    Vika on the other hand is very welcome on each and every cruise - because she doesn't bother anyone, doesn't take away time and is an extra bonus for many
    wishlist '20:
    Axxis - Blind Guardian - Circus Maximus - Doro - Edguy - Frozen Crown - Heavens Gate - Magnum - Opeth - Pretty Maids - Ravenous - Satan - Shadowpath - Silex - Skyclad - Steel Attack - Viathyn - Voyager - Wuthering Heights - 4th Dimension

    This cruise was BRUTAL for that.

    Monday - 3 Inches of Blood after 4 am
    Tuesday - Tyr after 4 am
    Wednesday - Immolation after 4 am
    Thursday - if physically able to do it, EVERYONE should be doing an all nighter

    Well sometimes those late shows worked, meant you could nap off the blind drunk in my case one night.
    Total honesty though I'm in favor of security guard who don't think you're trying to jump the stage if you fall/get tossed over the railing, and I like that trivia idea.
    Now let's go get banjaxxed.

    I love the 4am sets. I hope they don't change that. It works better anyways, since they started pushing shows a bit later there are a lot less conflicts. Last year I missed 3 or 4 bands that I really wanted to see, this year I missed none.

    Yeah, 4am sets are really cool. I fully support a 5 day cruise, but maybe it gets too expensive and wouldn't sell out?
    70K 2013 SURVIVOR (Cabin 2120)
    70K 2014 SURVIVOR (Cabin 2565)

    In perpetual post-cruise depression/pre-cruise anxiety.

    Doing my best to be there for 2015.

    Wishlist: Blind Guardian and Saurom. Will probably like 90%+ of the bands onbroad anyway.

    Yeah, that really pissed me off - you can get really hurt that way. The security guards are supposed to catch you and send you on your way (on your feet) back into the pit.
    I know they were doing that for girls (pulling them over the gate) but it should be that way for everyone!!!!! I find that 95% of security guards are dicks anyways. Lighten up! Everyone is trying to have fun here : )

    Yeah, if they added an extra day it would cost 25% more, and it would mess up RC's scheduling for that boat so it might cost even more.
