I just call it an a$$ lineup. It's horrible. And it disgraces the once proud name of Donington.

Lost Prophets are ok I suppose but definately not headlining material - especially not last night of festival headlining material. Im pleased about the following bands though - Disturbed, HIM, Kiss, The Offspring and JEW (although I never thought I'd see them at a metal festival lol).

Talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel. I have seen Lost Prophets and they aint that good. I can think of a lot better bands than Kiss and the Offspring aswell.
You suck whoever thought of these bands.
