WTF???? All these people who have been begging for Falconer and they are not on the list? Was there any effort made to get them? Glenn, what is up???? Also, to be the 10th Anniversary show, not a lot of star power in my opinion.

I agree....Andre Matos is great...but I expected lots more for the big 10th anniversary show.

I'm amazed at Royal Hunt actually being booked since Glenn wasn't so keen on them after that European tour ordeal a few years ago.

Orphaned Land though!!!!! I wore my OL shirt today hoping they'd get announced. DSO is a huge bonus to that. Though I really hope something big is closing Saturday night simply because while I love those two bands, I really need a big announcement to make this trip since I need to start saving up for a trip to Johannesburg for the World Cup in 2010.

Friday night does nothing for me although I'd like to see Sabaton.

Saturday is pure Heaven minus Orphaned Land. Circus Maximus, Pagans Mind, and Brainstorm all the same night? Holy fuckin' shit! Talk about BADASS! I'll be up front all damn night!

Must be Fates Warning. And what a headliner choice they are too! As one of the true forefathers of prog metal they are in my opinion a perfect choice to celebrate the 10th festival.

Fates is the final headliner, got that confirmed by someone who is on crew. Said that there are only 5 bands on Saturday because they all have longer than usual sets.

Great news! I was worried at Pagan's Mind being at a 3 slot, but if all the bands will have longer than usual sets...Hell yes!

I'm already looking forward to next year, and this year isn't even over yet...

I'm not entirely sure what's going on; Sarah says Glenn said there was one more coming. We shall see, I guess.

This is the weakest line up yet. Every year seems to get less appealing to me. There is no way I would make the trip for this show. But we all know it will still sell out.

Wow. Yeah. COMPLETELY missed this....You're right, I'm pretty sure they mentioned they'd definitely be here for this one since they had to miss IX.

And, I can't say anything to you Imajica, except that I whole-heartedly disagree.

WOW.....What a cool video. I almost lost it when it said" Ten years in the making" and the background music was that of Fates Warning. I was thinking "no freaking way"!

Fates Warning is a no brainer for me........I will be there.

Add The below to the mix and how the hell could I not be there.

Royal Hunt
Andre Matos
Circus Maximus
Pagan's Mind
Brainstorm
Sabaton

Thanks Glen for Fates Warning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It isnt a weak line up by far, just I think everyone expected something huge this time around. Saturday seems to be a best of ProgPower. The whole line up is solid, and I am not even a fan of any of those bands but I will say that is a good line up. The friday for me is really nice. I love Power Quest, Sabaton and Andre Matos is my favorite vocalist of all time. I think the shock of it all is still hitting us. I really think we all expected Tarot, Almah, Falconer and others....but like always...there are always surprises and bands that we never thought about. I would have never guessed Andre matos.

I dont think it gets less appealing. I think that it is harder and harder to book due to more acts touring now and more other smaller fest bringing bands over. It isnt like how it was 6 or 7 years ago where you were lucky to get at least 5 good tours a year....maybe.

I am sure it will sell out. Just on reputation alone. It is run professionally and I have never heard anyone ever say they had a bad time there. Hopefully this doesnt turn into a bitch session with everyone asking why this band and that band were not booked.

Everyone at the venue was extremely excited about the lineup. I, myself, am utterly excited.

As someone who has been a complainer for the last three years, let me just say that this lineup is one of my favorites ever. I love Fates Warning, Andre Matos, Power Quest, Brainstorm, Pagan's Mind, Circus Maximus, and Royal Hunt. There isn't a single band on there that I don't like, just a few I'm not familiar with(like Diablo String Orchestra).

And wow. Just wow. Glenn finally got Fates Warning, one of the few true headliners that he hasn't landed yet. I'm not sure if Matos is headliner material, but he's obviously got enough material to keep a crowd interested for 90 minutes, so that's cool.

My only quibble is with Power Quest and Circus Maximus being openers. I have to assume that the OP didn't list them in order. Seems to me that Power Quest and Circus Maximus have a lot more buzz than Tomorrow's Eve or Diablo Swing Orchestra. But we always quibble with roster slots. Heck, as long as I get to see those bands.
