    Thanks, Rob. Booked mine this morning. FYI, $79.99 is for a room with ONE bed. Two beds are $84.99. Still not bad. Thursday is cheaper...can't remember if they told me $64.99 or $69.99 (two beds). :oops:

    Let the party planning begin! :kickass:

    That's not a discount at all..those are all the same rates available if you book on their website. Rob - I'd call them back and request something since you're giving them A LOT of business, the rate they quoted you appears to the normal everyday rate.

    Well, that's not right. I'll give them a call & will let you know.

    I believe this is what Rob knew and wasn't telling us:

    Looks like Korpiklaani is headlining and Primordial has been bumped to the third slot.

    Something is odd though, How did Primordial get upstaged by Eluveitie? Beforehand they were just the supporting act. I mean Personally I like Eluveitie more but something feels amiss.

    If this is true then I have a good friend who will be exited about Korpiklanni

    Now, I am closer to making a decision about whether or not I will go to CPF this time around.

    It does seem strange. The only thing I can think of is that Eluveitie was on the last tour here, getting the exposure. Primordial has never toured the States before. From the fans' point of view they shouldn't have gotten upstaged, but from the way things really work, they don't get the upper hand.

    I'm super excited to see both!

    Thanks Rob. For me personally it doesn't matter, but it would be nice for everyone to know what's what. :)

    I'll be fine with this as long as Primordial doesn't get dicked when it comes to playing time.

    I think with this announcement, they just did . There are now 6 bands on the tour. I'd guess Primordial will probably get 20-30 minutes. I was expecting them to get ~60 minutes until this announcement. :erk:

    Glad I saw the headline set at Heathen Crusade a few years ago. :headbang:

    If Primordial can get close to 45 minutes I'd be more than satisfied.

    Ugh. Not my cup of tea. I'm out for Thursday.

    I do hope the Friday and Saturday lineups are my cup o' tea otherwise I may be skipping PF '09.
