I am planning to visit PP EU again as a visitor as well and I would go for Blind Guardian. Since I toured with them as well, I know that they played in similar venues like the Sjiva. I know the price range and stuff so it is not my place to say anything about that but if BG were there, I would be more than happy to book my plane tickets and visa this very moment .

Same goes for Symphony X.

Strange Land - besides them being a great band that'd be a chance to meet my e-friend (guitarist) in reality
Twinspirits - also for meeting Daniele Liverani, instead of only chatting at progulus
Cosmics - make it a double Liverani appearance (and have Virgil Donaty on stage!)
Panzerballett - unfair that only Dario and me are always having a big laugh at their super skilled death-math-metal-jazz gigs
Vandenplas
Atmosfear
Redemption
Dominici

Parallaxe - mindblowing french instrumental band
check them out at http://www.myspace.com/parallaxe

Mind's Eye
Thessera
- missed them in 2007
Mindflow
Galahad
Transmission
Indukti
Riverside
Guilt Machine
OSI
Animals As Leaders

Rush - for improving ticket sales!
A.C.T. - Andromeda - drummer double appearance
Freak Kitchen / Freak Guitar
Ritual
Pallas
Abigail's Ghost
Pure Reason Revolution
Hayseed Dixie
- another laughing asses off event!
Collins Wardingham Project - if possible, would be probably the first band from NZ
Beyond Twilight
Frost*
Overhead
Sleepytime Gorilla Museum
Fromuz
Animations
It Bites
Zero Hour
Faraz Anwar

I know for sure Mind's Eye won't happen, but perhaps Daniels new band The Murder of My Sweet.

http://www.myspace.com/themurderofmysweet

Try the song "Kiss of death". Awesome stuff!

That's what he's spending his efforts for? Sad he won't gain form again like back in the days of Walking on H2O. bummer.

Thanks for the heads up anyway, Matthias!

I've never seen half of the names you've said and I've never even heard half of the other half of the bands... I feel like a noob :P
Blind Guardian would be SICK! So would Symphony X!
I saw Bigelf as Dream Theaters support act, I don't know if their too big because of that, but they rocked pretty hard! Would be a great addition to PP!

Also one of my wishes for next year is wristbands! Not just a stupid stamp that's gone by the next day! It shouldn't be too expensive for Rene (I've looked it up ) especially when you think about it as free advertising "Hey? What's that wristband you're wearing?", "Ahh you know... The greatest festival like... evahhh", "Oh great! I'll come!" tadaa...
But it would be cool wouldn't it?

I totally agree! Especially if you've payed for the whole weekend, and visit every day, a wristband would be a lot better! I had to get 2 new stamps on sunday, because the almost washed/sweated away!

Oh I'd love that! Wrist bands can also be sponsored, so it's a real win-win situation!

Wristbands would be very cool, I agree!
But Blind Guardian are far too big, I'm pretty sure. They play as headliner at such huge Open Air Festivals like Bang Your Head!!!! etc. ya know. I can't stand Hansi's vocals anyway *ducks*

Dunno why they had to cancel last year, but maybe you could get Myrath for real in 2010!?

@ arnold: Guilt machine as a headliner? Ayreon I could understand, since that project has music enough for 2 hours.

And seriously, no madder mortem please. Saw them once live, have nightmares to this day

On the topic of wristbands.... Kingchaos is the man Wristbands completely rule.

Furthermore, Extol should reunite and play at progpower. Nuff said.

Haha, if you wanna catch up you should tune in to progulus daily, that should fix your noobyness within 2 months. ;-)

www.proulus.com - you must be capable of prog rock as well though

Blind Guardian might indeed be too big :P I now remember they even had their own festival once! But he is a sick vocalist, no matter what people say!!! Try to sing it
Damnit, I only know big bands. I was thinking about Jon Oliva's Pain (Savatage) but they play big festivals too, so probably too big also (especially if you have to pay the guy per kilogram, that guy is HUGE!)

Raimond, you missed the G I will check it out! Thank you! Weren't you the guy I ate pizza with? And tried to make a house of cards with progulus cards? (which failed goddamnit!)

Great everybody is positive about the wristbands! I was wondering if nobody just thought about it or that nobody would like it or something... Now all we have to do is convince Rene! (I put it in the feedback form Also did last year btw)

I know he's a very good vocalist, I just don't like the sound of his voice (well, except on Ayreon's Y )

JOP was headlining PPE in 2007 I think...

LOL, yes, that was me. I did tell you it won't work, did'nt I?

John Oliva was headliner at ppe in 2007. It was an amazing show. HE is big indeed, but not too big for us as an artist.
So why not Blind Guardian?

It's Hansi's cologne accent. I simply can't bear it... hence Doro

I'm not english, so I don't really notice the (bad)accent I guess :P
ProgressiveLunatic is cutting in his own legs, one of the greatest talents from your country and you don't like the voice of Hansi :P Or does everybody in Germany sound the same?
Why didn't Cello took me a year earlier I missed John Oliva! Well, maybe he would like to come back

I'm listening to Roots - Sepultura btw... But they're probably too big too...

So why not Blind Guardian?
Blind guardian + Wacken 2 years ago = Crushed by 75000 fans. That's why they're too big. They might be able to do it when they're in the neighbourhood, but an exclusive show? Don't think so.

On the topic of wishlists. Did I mention Everon? If I did, I'll just do it again.

EVERON!

And since a man can dream.....
The Arcane Order. Never gonna happen of course, probably a bit too extreme death, but still, a man can dream.

My wishlist:

=> Savage Circus (fast power metal in the vein of Blind Guardian, new CD at the end of this month)
=> Baroness (if this is on tour, it's a must-have for ProgPower)
=> The Ocean (it's been 6 years since I saw them, would love to see them again)
=> Arjen Lucassen's Guilt Machine (definitely a project that could be brought on stage, contrary to the whole Ayreon concept)
=> Diablo Swing Orchestra (love the new album!)
=> Mystic Prophecy (it's called progPOWER, why not, would make an incredible performance)
=> Manticora (in 2010, it will be ten years since they've played ProgPower, they made five albums in the meantime, would be great)
=> Status Minor (listened first time to their music today; not really original, think a bit like Seventh Wonder, but very well brought)

Guess that also Oceansize would go down very well with the ProgPower-crowd.

And oh yeah, maybe also The Psyke Project...
