    Safe to say that we will know SOON... Because there is not that much SOON left.

    Same - most of the bands I really like end up getting 45 minute sets.

    I could rattle off the names of 20 bands from my wishlist that would only get 45 minute sets on broad.

    I do enjoy the lesser known bands myself.
    But I do really need to see you all again. My job has gotten to me really bad and I want to see you all again. Beach party/ boat bash in a meer 17days or less :beerbang:
    Even more fun after that.
    70K. The trip I can not refuse

    Phoenix wrote:Sure, but I'll be honest, without having gone before the only reason I'd go again at this point IS for Sabaton. Will that change after being on a boat with you lot for 5 days, probably, but they are the only band I really truly wanted that I'm not getting this year. Well, them and Scar Symmetry/CoB, but there's still 20- some bands to go...

    Sabaton + Scar Symmetry + CoB would be enough to make me buy the tickets. I could patiently wait for the rest of the lineup.

    Yes, not all of us, but enough of us do.

    Absolutely right. As long as sales don't drop he doesn't need to change his strategy, no matter how much it pisses us off. This year he took a ship with 50% more capacity and he managed to *almost* sell it out despite last year's disaster with the announcements - which has not improved much this year.

    Everyone is different. For me, if this was a 40 band cruise I would be feeling REALLY disappointed with the lineup.

    A lot of okay bands, but the only wow-factor 10/10 band for me is Therion.

    But, its not a 40 band cruise - we still have over a third of the lineup to go. So I'm okay.

    Yeah, I only have two must-see bands on at the moment: Origin and Triosphere. Sure, there are some ok bands, but nothing I'd regret missing. But then again, I'm not going because of the lineup.

    Yup, for me only Venom is a must see. Some bands are ok, some are totally crap and should never exist.

    Indeed - we've always had at least one 'big' SYMPHONIC female fronted band (Therion doesn't really count):

    2011 - Epica
    2012 - Nightwish, Tristania
    2013 - Delain, Lacuna Coil, Doro (not sure she counts :P)
    2014 - Leaves' Eyes, Xandria

    So 2015? Most of the above are ruled out except Nightwish and Tristania. Amaranthe are a solid bet. Hoping there will at least be one other besides them - Sirenia, Serenity, Pythia, Revamp, Within Temptation, Diabulus in Musica, Sleeping Romance, Ancient Bards, Dalriada, Trillium. There are plenty out there to choose from !


    i think it's safe to say that if re-vamp is abroad, so will nighwish (and perhaps vice-versa)
    on both accounts fine with me :-)

    TICK-TOCK, TICK-TOCK

    (Maybe he'll notice and announce a band a few minutes ahead of whatever schedule he's on if we all start chanting)

    TICK-TOCK, TICK-TOCK

    (Maybe he'll give us someone to check out on youtube so we know one or two of their songs before we see them perform)

    TICK-TOCK, TICK-TOCK

    (Throw us a bone here)

    Maybe?

    Their website's bounce rate must be out of control, what with people constantly checking the website for a new band and then immediately leaving.

    I'll be checking on the hour from around 10am Vancouver time until bedtime. There's gotta be something announced today. Not much time left.

    I'm ok with that, because it appears that the "mainstream" bands have already been announced. Giving that my personal taste doesn't have that many mainstream bands, I'm hoping that 6 or 7 of my favorites will get on the boat, like Agent Steel, Vanden Plas, Doomsword, Atlantean Kodex, Riot, Pharaoh, Mekong Delta, Mael Mórdha, Falconer (ok, Falconer is kinda mainstream), etc.

    Maybe?

    Their website's bounce rate must be out of control, what with people constantly checking the website for a new band and then immediately leaving.

    I'll be checking on the hour from around 10am Vancouver time until bedtime. There's gotta be something announced today. Not much time left.

    Guys, here's an easier and more practical solution, in case you're interested.

    1. Enter the official 70k Facebook site via your PC.
    2. Click on the "like" button you can see on the banner.
    3. Select "receive notifications" on the deployable menu.

    And from now on you'll be notified in your smartphone whenever a Facebook update happens. Yeah, these updates could be bullshit like "wear your 70k t-shirt everywhere" and stuff like that, but you'll get a notification when a new band is announced. I find this pretty damn useful.

    Thank me later!

    For some reason, lately I've been getting 70K facebook notifications like 45 minutes to an hour later than I should be. I wonder if it's because I "liked" the page years ago and so now it's priority is lower or something like that.

    Either way, I just unfollowed/re-followed and unchecked/rechecked Get notifications in the hopes that it will fix this issue.

    ANDY, give us another post so I can test this out! :)

    TICK TOCK indeed. Under 17 days to go now, and 11 days until I fly out!!

    What are the chances of 2 bands a day so the lineup will be complete before I leave? Good, right?

    MMMMM well 13 days to flight time, to hit all bands before we get on the plane means 1 announcement every 14 hours,


    I'll go with the ZERO vote of this happening, :givebeer: :givebeer: :givebeer: :givebeer: :givebeer: :givebeer:


    Time to start getting excited :cheers:
