    Andy may have to make an announcement SOON if that Thyrfing cancellation is true (only seen it on the FB page as of now).

    Holy! So, this is the 2nd longest drought ever?!
    Nah - those droughts were just specific to the xmas period :)

    This is THIRD longest so far - behind 175 days for the 2014 cruise and 124 days for the 2017 cruise.

    Given that the expectation is we may not hear anything until christmas though, we could very well end up having the 2nd longest drought ever!

    Andy has NOT announced that Thyrfing has cancelled. The band announced that themselves and Andy has not said anything one way or the other. I am not saying that Thyrfing will be on the cruise mind you....but there has been no 'announcement' of any kind..even a cancellation. The drought continues :)

    Thyrfing announcing that they are not doing the cruise is not an announcement. It should in fact be an un-announcement and should negate the previous last announcement.

    Stats, does Andy normally announce a cancellation with a band announcement to ease the blow? Obviously the Vektor cancellation was a different acenario and got its own release but I'm curious about the others yet too lazy to look it up.

    Maybe Thyrfing will force his hand and speed up the end of this drought.

    Nah not typical, no. Pentagram's withdrawal from 2012 was followed a day later by an announcement. Other cancellations like Decrepit Birth, Xentrix, Chiamara, were all closely followed by announcements but as those cancellations were announced in the middle of regular announcement cycles you can't REALLY say that the announcement and cancellation were linked.

    Andy also typically doesn't announce cancellations by themselves. They usually just get shoehorned in with the next announcement so we may not see anything from Andy about Thyrfing until Christmas time

    For the always wonderful prize of free Sorrentos, how long do you think our longest gap between band announcements will be for this cruise?

    Edit: I'll try to keep the list updated here. Let's call 1 month 30 days, though I'll stick with my 8 weeks (56 days).

    Current longest drought: >91 days

    30 days - Metalhead_80s
    44 days - aleyeahed
    45 days - metalforever
    56 days - mooyagi
    60 days - godflesh
    67 days - AverageMetalDrummer
    70 days - MMatti
    75 days - MuzakMaker
    80 days - Mr.Kito
    90 days - Amalu
    91 days - toby

    125 days - sflheadbanger
    180 days - statsman
    This contest started in early June, and here we are waiting for an announcement before January 5th to declare a winner.

    Just wanted to dump my frustration here about the late announcements for the fact that: there will be so little time to get to know the "less popular" bands and their music before the cruise... GRRR :evil:
    For instance it took for me time to "like" Iotunn and now it is a 2-setter, yet if it was announced like 1-2 weeks before the departure, they'd have no chance at all...

    You see, it's all part of the "allure" of 70K. Those who still consume Andy's kool-aid will throw out lines like "It's part of the magic" and "Andy always delivers". But let's be frank. There's a reason why no other festival uses this methodology.

    Having now spent some time on the other end of a festival, the only reason this works for 70K is it has a large enough folks who are regular attendees and (usually) a strong batch of bands before ticket sales open. For most folks, the decision to go or not has already been made and no announcement will change that meaning the last 10-15 bands serve more of a "Look what you're missing out on, you should buy a ticket as soon as they drop next year.

    It's certainly a choice and with 2 straight cruises with lower sales I think we can say this is less "just post pandemic rebuilding" and more "people re-evaluated their choices and no longer wish to drop a couple thousand bucks on this when there are other cruises that charge in the same ball park but with complete line ups"

    I admit, I drink the Kool-Aid to some degree, and the phrase, “he always delivers” has left my lips on more than one occasion. That being said, I agree with what you’re saying, I will continue to attend because I love this event, and I’m deeply invested in it, but that does not mean that Andy could, and should do better.

    At the end of the day his announcement scheme is hurting him, and the event that I assume means so much to him. When sales starting so much earlier I thought for sure this would sell out quickly, and maybe it is selling better than we think…because at the end of the day, we don’t really know. That being said, we all know this announcement process can, and should be better. I don’t think you’ll get much disagreement from anyone on that point.

    I've been following Legions of Metal (and actually finally decided to make it work) and I think they've got that nice little sweet spot of what festivals could do if they want to do the protracted announcements with hints.

    6 weeks with multiple styles of hints (that could actually be logic-ed out) along with announcement dates. With full festival passes dropping after the first round of announcements

    Personally, I'm wondering if a downsize isn't in the cards for 2025. Can't go all the way back down to Majesty since RC doesn't have that one anymore. But there are 2 RC classes between Freedom and that. Still not going to fix Andy's announcements, but might have a better chance of selling out since rising costs and the "allure" don't seem to be doing the trick.

    I totalmente agree.

    I thought this year it would be different... lessons learned and all...
    But this makes no sense.

    Keeping the fans waiting for so long cant be good.

    I like the (theory of the) announcements scheme... one by one with hints... keeps me excited and thinking about the cruise..
    But that should be done right.
    At some point a weekly announcement
    Or announcing dates "X bands will be announced between Day Y and Day Z"

    Anyway...
    Never considered so much saying that "next time will be my last" because this year I got REALLY disappointed with Andy and how 70k is being handled.
    And I'm tired to hear Andy saying UMC is listening to us, next year things will improve, this year we ran into issues... etc

    For instance it took for me time to "like" Iotunn and now it is a 2-setter, yet if it was announced like 1-2 weeks before the departure, they'd have no chance at all...
    You see, it's all part of the "allure" of 70K. Those who still consume Andy's kool-aid will throw out lines like "It's part of the magic" and "Andy always delivers". But let's be frank. There's a reason why no other festival uses this methodology.

    Having now spent some time on the other end of a festival, the only reason this works for 70K is it has a large enough folks who are regular attendees and (usually) a strong batch of bands before ticket sales open. For most folks, the decision to go or not has already been made and no announcement will change that meaning the last 10-15 bands serve more of a "Look what you're missing out on, you should buy a ticket as soon as they drop next year.

    It's certainly a choice and with 2 straight cruises with lower sales I think we can say this is less "just post pandemic rebuilding" and more "people re-evaluated their choices and no longer wish to drop a couple thousand bucks on this when there are other cruises that charge in the same ball park but with complete line ups"
    I still say we really don’t know if this year is selling low as last year until we’re on board (or if availability suddenly starts changing on the website). The cabins that are currently available are VERY similar to what was still available with a month to go for 2020, and that boat seemed to have a pretty normal sized crowd to me.

    It'll be interesting. The only times we've had no announcements during the stretch of Dec 24-Jan 1 were 2018 and 2013 but both times were shorter breaks in announcements (48 and 17 days respectively)

    4 Months with no announcements leaving only 29 days and 24 bands (at least) to announce

    Meaning that if we keep up with two triple announcements and (I'll be generous here) all bands announced by Friday pre cruise (with the running order dropped shortly after) 26 days for 18 announcements meaning Andy still has 8 more days he can squeeze in this hiatus without doubling up announcement days

    Turns out Stats' crazy guess might have not been so off base

    Since Andy likes to break hiatus while I'm busy. I'm going to assume if we get an announcement on Tuesday it means that I will have a light week. If he waits until the 5th, It's going to be an insane week :lol:
