    Well, trust me to make a thread about this! Haha!

    As I know that quite a few forumers such as Metal Evilution Dave and Watto will be heading over to our Mecca this year, I thought I'd see if anyone else was heading over, what festivals they'll be attending, general Q&A and all that kinda stuff.

    As a spur of the moment kinda thing, I went and booked flights the other day to head over for a month, from the 26th of May to the 28th of June.

If anyone can suggest things to see and do and places to visit in the forementioned places, it'd be greatly appreciated.

    Would love for Dave and Watto to post up their itineries too! :)

    I'm going in September for a month. Just visiting family and watching some World Cup qualifiers. Hoping Adagio, Symphony X or Circus Maximus will be around my way if not I will go catch them next year.

    I'll be in Europe from 20th June til 18th July. First time. I've got much better things to do than watch bands though. Hitting over a dozen countries. I'll be spending my birthday eve in Paris, and Birthday in the Swiss Alps too.

    Not a fan of Prague Pete? Why's that? Not much to see or just downright not worth it?

    And Pyro, first time I went to Europe, I didn't see many bands, more sights and such. You're going to love it!

    I'd love to go this year, but unfortunately I'm not going to have enough saved up so I'll be heading over for Metal Camp, Tuska Open Air and Wacken next year instead.

    Yeah, that's the plan here, but to the extreme.

    ^ I concur with beardy, Pyro.

    Crap sights, boring people, sanitised pubs and so many fucking fat disgusting old tourists I literally couldn't walk down some streets (no kidding at all). Crap bridge, crap "castle", crap selection of Czech beers (like coming to Australia and finding only VB and Fosters). Ugly, fat, pissed Irish/British/American bucks parties on every corner. The kind of place where you can talk to 100 people on the street and not find any locals. Apparently Cesky Krumlov is by far the better idea if you're going to CZ.

    Did you go to Hells Bells?

    Great club and the beer was about $1 AUD for 1/2 litre (2006 ex. rate).

    I couldn't be bothered to post the lineup of the festivals but i'm definantly going to/already have tickets for Sweden rock, Hellfest, Wacken & metal camp. I'll probably do the first day of Graspop and I might go to Brutal assault. I'll be over in Europe for at least 3 months and i'll be going to as many places as I can and i'm going to climb lots of epic shit. Ive heard the Swiss alps have a couple of challenging mountains:p These next 3 months of waiting to go over are going to be torture

    Final bands for Hellfest were announced during the night. I still can't believe how good they've made the line up. Extremely diverse and there's really something for everyone on there. Check this out:

    Magic Circle Festival has just been announced now too - July 18, naturally with Manowar headlining. I'm told the lineup for that is gonna be pretty cool this year. :)
