    Will we get another band before 200 Days To Departure! ?

    253 days to go, 44 bands to go.

    That is a band every 5.75 days.

    And the 53 day gap between announcements is the third longest in 70K history! Only got the 60 day break between announcements in 2012 from July to September, and the mighty 175 day gap last year to beat!

    I'm guessing we'll get another non-announcement on facebook next week to celebrate 60 days of no announcements.

    No announcements don't bother me, I'm just tired of seeing the "300 Days To Departure!" At least update the thread title. 252 days to departure.

    Same here Bro!

    If I get a chance to speak with Andy next cruise, the most important question I wanna ask him is WHO was it that came up with those great clues in year one. If it was someone who no longer works for UMC, he just needs to pick someone on current payroll with a creative mind and start coming up with gems like those again. If it was Andy himself, I wanna know what happened to the day-to-day/weekly passion he had for entertaining those who love the event he created. Much of the magic of this experience has been lost by the simple watering down of the build-up process that kept us all guessing and chatting about what/who to expect.

    C'mon Andy! Whatever changed, dig deep and try to find it again Skipper!! We miss the greatness that you and your event exploded onto the metal world with! :headbanger:
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    Yeah, fat chance of that although I give it pretty good odds that they will be on MORC 2015, which would give me yet another reason (besides Zebra) to book both MORC as well as 70K. Krokus were fantastic at Swedenrock.

    We're going to for the overload of unfirmation that is coming
    My guess that next announcement will be at least 10 bands

    That's a silly thing to think. Maybe we'll get a spurt of 10 bands over a couple weeks but 10 bands at once no way :P

    That's a silly thing to think. Maybe we'll get a spurt of 10 bands over a couple weeks but 10 bands at once no way :P

    Andy is a NICE GUY.

    What he is doing, is holding off any announcements until Statswife and I know whether we can go or not. This will stall sales and ensure there are still affordable cabins available.

    So what is going to happen is, early July we will know what sort of tax return we are getting. If its what we expect, we will be all clear to go.

    THEN Andy will announce Van Canto, Amaranthe, Alestorm, Thaurorod, Sabaton, Ex Libris, Epica, Magnum, Pythia, and Living Sacrifice.

    And I will book.

    You know I'm right.*

    I'm kinda leaning towards the belief that he wants to announce many bands at once. Ie. Instead of a band here and there, he wants to drop 5-10 on us at the same time for maximum excitement? We'd probably get too critical of each individual band if Andy announced one band every other day. Thoughts anyone?

    The non-announcements are a nice touch this year. It's been nice to not have COMPLETE silence.... I've got faith that things will turn out fine again. As long as I hear announcements every 100 days or so, I'll be fine....I'm anticipating lots of good announcements soon since there's gotta be summer scouting missions going on right now :mrgreen: I hope.

    My thoughts are that if the announcements start pouring in after summer, at least it will be a good distraction from the coming cold, or some nice Christmas gifts to unwrap every day.

    The band line-ups have always had good bands in the past, so I don't worry too much about that. There's already some confirmed bands that I like.
    Top Picks: Allegaeon, Angelus Apatrida, Arkona, At the Gates, Chthonic, Devin Townsend, Down, Eluveitie, Enabler, Ex Mortus, Exodus, Eyehategod, Finntroll, Havok, Hypocrisy, Iced Earth, Ihsahn, Kreator, Nervosa, Nylithia, Rotting Christ, Sabaton, Sodom

    This is pretty much where I'm sitting also. 70K and Andy have an excellent track record of booking a nice diversity of bands and genres, without delving too much into screamo or metalcore crapola :D , so I'm pretty confident I'll be happy with the final band-list. Even if the "bonus" 20 bands are bands I can't stand, that still leaves a great cross-section to look forward to...and I'm already happy with the bands confirmed so far.

    If there were another 10 bands that I consider "good", that would be enough to make me really really really want to book.

    My feelings for the current crop or bands are:
    Not a fan - Annihilator, Heathen, In Extremo, Chimaira, Cannibal Corpse, Origin, Xentrix, Grave Digger
    Would see 1 set, maybe 2 - Equilibrium, Threshold
    Would see 2 sets, but seen before - Apocalyptica (1), Arch Enemy (2), Blind Guardian (5), Ensiferum (6), Korpiklaani (2), Therion (2)

    On every 70K so far I've had at least 4 or 5 'bucket list' bands whom to that point of time I'd never seen live. This lineup doesn't have any yet, but with 44 to go its inevitable. I'm just wondering who those bands are gonna be, and would REALLY like to know prior to booking :)

    I'd be tempted to book if I got a couple of wishlist bands, and, say, five bands I consider good. So far the only wishlist band for me is Origin, and I'll get to see them in December anyway.
    A couple of girlie bands (since Andy really loves repeats, Delain would be awesome, or Epica, but I'd rather see Delain on the boat again) and some proper death metal. And Primordial.

    For your sake (and mine :D ), I'd really like to see Primordial & some of the Martin Van Drunen bands [Asphyx, Hail of Bullets, ...] booked for the boat.

    I have a feeling that a political party will be formed from this cruise, we will promise you what you want , not give it to you , and make you pay for the privilege of being lied too.
    please send any party donations to my bar tab for 2015 :givebeer: :givebeer:
