We are a bit afraid that people are not so motivated to come on Friday, because they have to work the whole day, and have to hurry to change their clothes, eat, and drive to the festival.
For those who came on Fri, they didn't sleep a lot between both days ...

Maybe a kind of list with + and - with the days ?
This forum poll will give an idea, but not the final decision of course. We are trying to give the best solutions to people ;-)

This is my point of view, this doesn't involve the members of MFVF :

" - "
Friday : less bands, ending late, maybe less people (not good for the bands), reduced staff, public more tired of their day.
Sunday : shops are closed, people work on Monday

"+"
Friday : shorter day, shops are open
Sunday : more bands, ending earlier (maybe 22h / 10pm max), longer shows, starting later on both days


(this is a quick idea, I should dd some points later)

Yes but when you want to see some bands you don't care about sleeping. My friends and I slept for 2 hours between the days and I was all hyper the second day. The people on the bus (most of them were in both days) were obviously tired but they got a nap while going to the fest and they were ok for Saturday

I believe the "-" in Friday is that the bands are "extreme" and not accesible, i knew many people that didn't come to friday for that reason but if there was a mixture of both "styles" people would be more motivated to come

Both days do the same for me cause:

Friday: people work -but that only applies for people who live in Belgium cause for those who take a plane, we come a day earlier or very early that morning so we do take a day off either way-
Sunday: people work on monday -this time its bad for the foreign people cause they have to travel many hours, those who live in Belgium should have no prob driving 2-3 hours if the fest ends at 22h-

You just have to count how many people are actually from belgium and how many from abroad
If most people are from belgium then Sunday is the best for them, the fest finishes early and they get back home at midnight or 1 am
Either way, Friday or Sunday, the foreign fans (that take plane) have to take a day off! (Friday or Monday) so it really depends on the belgium fans
About motivation, I insist on the bands thing (btw to make it clear, I love extreme bands) Laughing

I voted for Staurday and Sunday. I work on both Friday and Sunday, and would find it easier this way; coming right from work to the festival is really difficult to me, and as the festival would end earlier on Sunday (as it could also start earlier), it would be really fine.

As long as the main fest remains on saturday, it won't be a problem for most people I think. I personally don't care much about the additional days prior or after the main fest.

I'll propably only come to the 'main fest'
but I voted friday and saturday because that's what has been announced and changing dates could be bad (I think), I'd more keep the switching days for next year then
and offc I prefer seeing saturday as a very long day, and ending later Smile (but that's personal preference ofc)

and in case I would come to the other day, going to an outside shop to get something cheaper and more healthy (that really makes you able to do long days Smile ) is always nice, no priority ofc

I'm not sure about mixing bands, mixing saturday would be like changing the formula

When you have around 500 or 700 persons for Doro, it's a non-sense.
The problem was probably the Friday. There were less bands, so less interest from people in addition to their tiredness ...

It's ealy now, and if a change happens it won't arrive a few months before the festival of course.

I would really advise taking a decision on dates sooner rather than later.

I, as well as many others are coming from abroad. Travel and accommodation gets more expensive the closer you get to the dates. So even though we are in January, 9 months off, I'm seeing the flights creep up bit by bit already. Now, if I didn't have other commitments, I would just book to get to Brussels on the Friday morning, and depart on the Monday, therefore being covered either way. But, like many others,I can't just go ahead and do that.

I really look forward to a decision being made as soon as possible, because if it is too late, there will be many of us who won't be able to come Crying or Very sad

Good luck - I'm sure it can't be easy trying to figure out what to do for the best. Thanks for putting the time and thought into this issue!

After a meeting, we have decided to change the dates.
Instead of 17 and 18 oct, the festival takes places on the Saturday 18 and Sunday 19.

This decision was taken after to have seen all the points.
These days are more easy for a lot of people (audience, staff, bands ...), will let more place for bands, better for the schedule (later opening, change over, show time).

Tickets bought during the special offer still valid for saturday and sunday, no worries.

The website is updated.

Probably separated if there is a very good headliner.
But last year it was a little bit mixed on the Friday, as Doro and Holy Moses are very different styles.

mixing it a bit is a good thing
having singers that do both grunts and clear or bands where the grunter has a big part

So, that means the "main fest" is still on Saturday 18th, right?

Yes, it's always on the Saturday, but Sunday will be a full day too.
