I've ended up with a spare Wacken ticket if anyone wants it - $210


Oh and I'll be at Metalcamp, Kaltenbach, Wacken and maybe Summer Breeze.

How you getting from Tuska to Metalcamp? That's gonna be a very tight squeeze..

1 x direct flight 4/7/10 from Helsinki - Ljubljana dep: 17:00 arrive 18:40, so depending on buses / trains to tolmin, it would be possible... BUT flight alone will cost $1500 :P

http://www.skyscanner.net/flights/hel/lju/100704/airfares-to-ljubljana-from-helsinki-vantaa-in-july-2010.html

Helsinki to Munich..... $1430 PLUS overnight stay in munich / ljubljana + plus train etc to tolmin.... "almost makes the above option worthwhile". :P

Maybe fly from helsinki to croatia (split) and then train up?

http://www.skyscanner.net/flights/hel/spu/100704/airfares-to-split-from-helsinki-vantaa-in-july-2010.html

All options sounds like a mission / ridiculously expensive - GOOD LUCK!!!! :-P

1 month and 2 days before im off... YEEEEEHAAAAWWWWW!!! ;D

It's doable for about $350 (including flights, bus, accomo overnight in some POS Venesian ghetto), much to the disagreement of SODs analysis :P But if I were to do it, I'd have to leave fairly early on the 3rd night which may or may not suck big-time. Plus I'm starting to get flashbacks from when we tried to go from Dessel to Ljubljana last year :o I think I promised myself then that I wouldn't do a similar epic travel mission post-festival ever again, so I'm still deciding if the Tuska line up is worth it. I've just got a decent amount of time to kill in between Hellfest and Metal Camp and I haven't been to Scandinavia yet sooooo :whistle:

Certainly :)

Upon further investigation I've actually come up with a better alternative, so I'll show both. First one involves a stay over in Stockholm, not Venice (my mistake)

#1
Helsinki - Stockholm  $200.90
4th July 17:55 - 17:55 (gotta love the change in timezones)

Stay overnight

Stockholm - Venice Treviso $80.05
5th July 07:10 - 09:35

Venice Treviso to the main station on main-land Italy, enter Slovenia via Udine and Nova Gorica to Tolmin.


#2
Helsinki to Ljubljana via Copenhagen $410.30
5th July 07:40(06:40) - 11:45

Then just hit the bus to Tolmin. There's a similar flight on the day before so thats an option too. A little bit more expensive, but the reduction in fuck around is spectacular so I reckon it'll be well worth the extra $money$ if I'm able to get out of Tuska nice and early Sunday morning.

You fucked up the link for the copenhagen flight (wrong link) :P

If ya dont mind flight hopping, why dont you just go:

$410.60
Depart: Sun 04 Jul 2010
17:55-17:55 1h Helsinki Vantaa (HEL) Stockholm Arlanda (ARN) SAS  SK6623 
  3h 30 Connect in airport
21:25-23:55 2h 30 Stockholm Arlanda (ARN) Ljubljana (LJU) SAS  SK8905 

http://www.skyscanner.net/flights/results/hel/lju/100704/selected-flights.html?owfc=stau*hel1007041755*sk*1*lju1007042355&oqrid=stauhel%20lju%20100704

The advantage of that is (i) same airline for initial / connecting flight with 3hrs difference between the two.... handy for if the initial flight is delayed, causing you to miss the connection, (ii) you end up in Ljubljana on the 4th..... can go to a hostel near the traino, sleep, wake up on the 5th, have breakfast and get whatever bus (or train) you fancy to Tolmin.....

:)

Depends on what night Hypocrisy are playing, really ;D

But it's good to know it's pretty do-able with a lot of it's hassle easily ironed out with a bit of research. The less borders I have to cross by bus the BETTER.

Not sure how many people are going to be in Europe this early, but I found a pretty sweet looking festival in West Germany that'll cater to the death and grind fans

DEATHFEAST OPEN AIR
10th June to 12th June

Suffocation, Prostitute Disfigurement, Haemorage, Cliteater, Dying Fetus, Necrophagist, Hail of Bullets, Axphyx, Grave, Sinister... Pretty damn solid line up :)

Fear Factory just got announced for Wacken. So FF and Gojira at Wacken, Sarke at Party.San, and Cannibal Corpse at both and also at Summer Breeze with Behemoth... if someone adds Triptykon my head might explode.

haha tell me about it, Cannibal Corpse not once, not twice, but three times in three weeks.

We worked out that if we're lazy no good drunk-all-the-time metalheads (natch) then we'll see about 100 bands over the three weeks. But if we put in some real effort we could see far more :D

OK slight plan-change on the N?rburgring. Because you need to be 25 to rent a car there, I'll be heading over there after Hellfest and driving it on my birthday! (24th June) :D

I'll be looking to stay at House Marvin hotel in the mean time. Daily rental of a car starts at 495.00 EUR (a Renault Clio RS, the one I'll be renting) with a... *winces* 2,500.00 EUR bond. From what I understand it includes fuel etc, but I've sent them an email asking for details.

So if you're looking to come along, try not to have a crash :P

Is anybody going to Summer Breeze?

For those that do want to go but havent got a tik yet, the Summer Breeze site has sold out.  I have found a place that has only a few left, is anyone else interested?  Or is anyone selling tickets that would save me going through a German tattoo shop?
