2) Meeting place :
Parking Autocars - Rue Cardinal Mercier - near Gare Centrale

Tip : we ask to the persons who want to be back earlier to not ask this to the bus driver !!!
They don't have to change plans just for a few guys.
Last year, around 15 persons missed the shuttle because they didn't hear that departure time had changed.
You want to leave earlier, just ask for a taxi or car sharing Wink

Last year there was a little diagram on the forum of the different doors and labelled where to go, could we have this again? Obviously not too important right now, but i'm a bit slow so it would help alot and i'm sure other people would benefit too! Embarassed

Yes, of course.
But as you can guess, this is early, as we need to make the plans before.

Entrance, desk, bar etc ... are the same, only small details could change.

We met the video company 2 weeks ago.
We should get a big prod for this dvd, so that would be a pity to not produce it Wink

Some agreements, need to be done before ...

3 years ago, my friends and I went to MFVF and when we went out to get some fresh air (about half an hour before the main act Lacuna Coil) - along with a number of other people - the security people didn't want to let us back in again claiming there was some rule saying that when you go outside after 10 pm, you weren't allowed to come back in again. Of course we weren't happy at all with this and eventually they let us back in.

Now, my question: will this rule be applied again this year? Because honestly, this is the main reason why my friens and I didn't come back the year after that or last year.

No, I explained this 2 years ago.
The security guys in 2005 are not the same now, they usually worked at AB (big venue in Brussels) and decided by themselve that people were not allowed to enter again during the last show ... we never agreed that of course, this is not normal.
AB curfew is at around 10 or 11.00 pm, so I guess that the reason was because they wanted to finish earlier Shocked

When there is a problem like this, we always learn it a long time after the festival ... so we can't help people at the good moment.

We know nearly all the staff very well, but there is always newcomers, so I suggest you that when there is something unusual, find a responsible (there is always 1 person who manage his staff : security, crew, etc ... and of course promoter).

Just curious, but what time roughly would the first band be on stage? I've never been to MFVF but considering going for the Saturday - however, I'll be in NL the night before so would be getting the earliest train into Belgium (hopefully meeting someone there to drive me over). One of the main bands I want to see is Edenbridge who I'm guessing will be playing early, so wanted to make sure there was little chance of missing them before hand Smile

Also, how long will bands play roughly?

Reviews and stuff:
Jukebox: Metal

Firsts bands play between 30 and 40 minute.
First act should play at around 10.20 am

hi there

just wanted to ask, if all the bands performing this year have been 100% confirmed.
most of all i want to see OTEP.
i just don't feel like booking all tickets (to make a pretty long way from Germany) and finally finding out, OTEP's performance is cancelled.
