Does anyone know when Hellfest tickets go on sale? Is it usually the same time each year? I hear it sells out fairly quick and don't want to miss out.
I reckon a couple of the following will be there; Maiden, Metallica, GnR, Scorpions, Helloween. This appeals to me.

I think they are going on sale next Friday. I'd say they'll announce it on Monday.

Can't see that they be putting tickets out without some sort of announcement. I'd be expecting something around the same time.

Still seems nuts to me that people would fork out that kinda money for a fest ticket without knowing some of the lineup - at least a couple of the headliners

Ye would think that but I waited for the line up a couple of years ago, it was the best festival line up Id ever seen and it was sold out. Going by the headline/support sized acts I anticipate for this year, its worth a punt.
Plus its meant to be deadly craic and decent weather. Whats not to like?

Its not something I'd ever do but I suppose it's pretty much the same band's doing the rounds every year, especially at the bigger fests, so you could probably make a decent guess at who'll be there

Thats exactly it, Hellfest attracts the sort of bigger acts I want to see and represents the best chance of seeing a few in the one place and it sells out before its announced so its a no brainer for me. And I like the size too, 25k, big festivals do my tits in.

Got my numbers mixed up there. Hellfest daily capacity is 55,000. That suits me.

Don't mind a small bit of sun but decent weather to me is not scald me balls off. Heard it's tricky to get to?

Wouldn't buy a ticket till see a few bands even if they've been pretty consistent meself, Always wanted to check HF out but falls same weekend as Graspop which won't sell out straight away in 2016 for instance line ups were similar GMM had Maiden,HF had Rammstein which were at GMM this year Maiden rumored for HF next year, swings and roundabouts really.
