**Please note that the line-up was compiled, based on European festival policy. From a safety and security point of view, the two artists have to play simultaneously, as the smaller electronic venues cannot handle nearly the same capacity as the main/rock venues can. The formula at ALL multi arena events in the UK is that the programmes in different arenas should be ‘balanced’ i.e. that the most popular acts in each arena should appear at exactly the same time and for similar durations to avoid crowd rushes or surges between arenas, which is a major public safety risk.
Both Fatboy Slim and Metallica are headlining artists, who are both playing the penultimate slot. After consulting with various festival experts in the UK, and taking the venue curfews into consideration, this is the only line-up approved by all the agents and management.
