This report is slightly inaccurate - 12 bands in total were announced. Tesla, Skin, Karma To Burn were also announced among others.

Down were awesome in '06 though, and Karma To Burn came totally out of the blue - well happy with that one.

Dude, I really wish I could go to this. I would see 10 out of the 24 bands on this bill. Journey is playing!!! That alone is my reason. For all the haters that start on about Arnel, don't waste you time. The man is the greatest rplacement they have found yet.

NP: Marilyn Manson= Cyclops

Hang on a second, I missed some bands. That does not make this article "highly innacurate". More importantly, it's both you and their website that is highly innacurate by saying "Skin is reforming to perform at Donnington, their first performance there since 1994." The band is Skunk Anansie, Skin is the singer. She released some solo albums under her name after the band broke up. I apologize for the original article lacing the complete additions, I'll fix it now, but don't slate the report when you didn't get it right yourself.

Now playing: 2Pac & Dr. Dre - California Love

I saw Journey in 2006 and they weren't too bad actually. They were better than Queensryche and Thunder.

No worries, I didn't mean it to be come across like I was slating the article or anything, just seemed strange as the info was up everywhere else, so sorry if I caused any offence. I was aware straight away it was Skin the UK rock band and not the former singer of Skunk Anansie - though I must admit they were a very vague childhood memory until this morning!

Journey alone will be worth it for the mass singalongs to Don't Stop Believin' and Any Way You Want It, if nothing else.

Lol weird mate, when I saw Journey that's exactly what we were having a mass sing song to! Glad all that's sorted now. I'd probably go this year if I had the cash but I'm willing to bet that won't happen lol.

Now playing: Skindred - Set it Off
