When is the announcement?

The main announcement is generally just before the ticket resale although previous years has seen numerous bands released before then. Like many UK festivals the line up announcement can be unpredictable, it also sometimes depends on the bands. For example in 2014 Metallica could not be announced in the full announcement due to a contract already in place with another festival.
