Hard to believe it was 20 years ago.
What a line up. And Pantera throwing in a cover of Number of the Beast. Great venue, wish they had a few more at it.

This is a sore spot forme seeing this. The week I was meant to book this my shithole of a work place put me on monthly pay without giving notice so I ended up missing it. What a line up.

Did Neurosis play that day? I have no memory of them at this. I do remember Pitchshifter playing though. The mexican wave during Foo Fighters :lol: The heat was mental too. Hard to believe it was 20 years ago.

Soulfly were hardly higher on the bill than Slayer? And did Ozzy play his solo stuff then do a set with Sabbath?

Yeah, soulfly were on after Slayer. Logan from machine head was in soulfly at the time. And yes Ozzy did a solo set first which had Joe Holmes on guitar, Mike bordin on drums and Rob tajerio on bass. I have a few bootlegs of The bands that played that day.

That was a class weekend! The heat was indeed nuts. The Mexican wave with the flying beer cups haha! Good times, mad to think 20 years have passed!

Jesus there's a few lineup anomalies there--like Therapy? are one of my favourite bands but playing above Pantera and Slayer? And really don't get the Soulfly thing either!

Great day out. Bunch of us from Kilkenny went. Therapy filled Korn’s slot hence the position for them. (Korn kancelled last minute)

Even at the time though it was ridiculous that soulfly were above slayer. Soulfly I thought were awful, nothing new there.

Slayer were the band of the day for me, I’m prob bias as it was my first time seeing them but they ripped it.

Funniest part of the day was an announcer telling the crowd to stop throwing mud and then gets landed direct hit to the face with a pile of mud. Classic.

The announcer was Krusher. Remember him? from Raw Power, Noisy Mothers. Pantera were the band of the day for me.

[quote="huez2000"]this is a moot point of course.....but if you think about it...a line up of that quality (presuming in theory they were all still playing)...playing a festival nowadays would do serious business, compared to what I presume was the standard ticket sales back in the day.

That was a great gig. Long trip over for it, but so worth it.
