Yes, saw that. More annoncements Monday.

Sounds like a pretty strong start to me.

Not sure whether I will be giong, depends on whether I can win free tickets again, or if my finances improve! Certainly had a good time this year

Good start to the line up for 2011, not great fan of Slipknot but would like to see them live, same scenario as Rammstein last year really.
I'll be there again with or without free tickets as have enjoyed the last two immensely (thanks again to Arthrur Fowler far spare ticket last year

Better start keeping an eye out for the competitions..........
Busy month for gigs as I will be seeing Iron Maiden later in the month aswell....

I enjoyed Sonisphere alot this year, i don't think i'll be able to do both Soni and Download next year, so i'm going to wait for more announcements from both.

They just announced the big four on the Friday...Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth.

Would only want to see Metallica out of that lot though. High Voltage still winning!

So far Sonisphere are looking way stronger than Download and much as I'd love to see System of a Down play they are currently the only thing at Download I want to see. At the moment, Sonisphere here I come

Nothing major there but Limp Bizkit were better than I thought they'd be last year, and Gallows were decent at the free Rage gig in London.

Sonisphere > Download at the moment (although I am tempted to do both)

They both look pretty poor compared to last years line ups.
