I'm tempted to fly to London to see it. How many stages do they have? I wouldn't be able to see all the bands I'd like to see, I'm sure.

Of course Nurburg also has a cool lineup on the 3rd of June. Just not as many bands as Donington Park. But I'd rather see Germany. :)

It'll be either 2 or 3 stages, probably 3, but the smallest one will be just all the lower profile up and coming bands.

And as to why the US doesn't have concerts like this, well look at US TV compared to UK TV, you've just been bought up accepting piss poor quality as the norm. The US in pretty much every respect is style over substance. I bet your concerts have bigger & more elaborate stages, while ours have more and better bands.

Reading boys Exit Ten are relatively high up that bill. :beer:
