I'm very happy with this lineup.

Gallhammer and Urgehal collide, so I can't see both!
Why not move Urgehal to Garage as well, where the sound is great? 
Other than that, good job.

You kind of said it in the lineup topic. Wink

And for my own part there are three things that bug me with this year's festival:
- Three Kvarforth bands Unsure
- Black metal is poorly represented

Yet this is not very important. What matters is that Urgehal, Negura Bunget, Sahg and Vreid all have been placed on the club day, and that it is not physically possible to be at all the concerts.

These ones are four of the best bands on the lineup. And whether you agree or disagree to this, you still have to agree to the fact that these bands have made more music and released more albums than several of the bands playing on the rest of the festival.

Those are my feelings, too. The six bands on the bill that I want to see that I've never seen (if that makes any sense!) and three of them are clashing. Wouldn't have minded seeing Urgehal, either. Sad

I understand it's annoying that some bands clash that you'd like to see, but the whole "why didn't xxx play instead of the smaller yyy at the main venue thursday-saturday" discussion is a bit meaningless for several reasons.

1) The club day would be rather useless if we had only very small and unknown bands playing.

2) Not everyone can attend the same venue at the club day anyhow, so if the more interesting bands were placed at the same venue or a couple of venues that would mean that some of you would be standing outside not getting in.

3) The club day has its own budget. This means that no money from the "main" festival budget is used for Wednesday. In other words a band from Wednesdays lineup that is more expensive could not be exchanged with the smallest, less expensive bands on the bill the other 3 days without exceeding the budget (or moving money from the Wednesdays budget to the main budget). The reason for the split budgets is that we don't want to be doing the club day if it can't support itself.

That is true...  We'd have to move around some of those more attractive bands.

I guess maybe my main question is why have 5 clubs?

Could have 3 clubs with 3 bands each instead of 5 with 2 each, roughly.

Sure, we've always had to choose where to go/who to see in the past, but at least for the last two years there weren't bands like Gallhammer, Vreid, Sahg, Urgehal and Negura Bunget all going up against each other at competing locations.

A couple of those locations aren't exactly centrally located, Blå and Maiden come to mind.

I'm still hoping to catch at least half of Gallhammer's set after Sahg, but I'm not holding my breath. If I can't get into Gallhammer, I'll head to see Negura Bunget instead and hope I can get in.

What's done is done.
The club day seems to be a sort of experiment for now, and whatever doesn't work will be changed for the next year, right?
It's a nice idea. And I like the thought of the metalheads spreading out and taking over the whole city, if only for a day.
