You'll want to get your accommodations square away very soon. There are two schools of thinking there: stay close to the Edison lot, so you can sleep in later, or stay close to the Ramshead and th Soundstage, so the stumble home is shorter.

I'm afraid that a fair amount of hotels will already be booked, however.
haha yeah I've been 7 times. This year will be my 8th as long as I can get the time off from work (holiday weekend which works in my favor but my base is hosting an airshow that weekend so we'll see...) As far as hotels go, I've stayed a few miles away, in the hostel and within stumbling distance. I take whatever I can get even if it means roomming with 7 others because that shit sells out quick!
They had you do a drug test and the forgot to test for drugs???

Got a pair of three day passes available. Asking only what I paid for them. Managed to snag a couple when they were offered for sale early back in November, so they're cheaper than even the now sold out regular three day. PM me if you're interested.

I'm highly disappointed in the huge lack of posts about this year's MDF on this board. All the updates and photos and shit are on Facebook, goddammit! WTF?

Been thinking pretty hard about going to Messe Des Morts this year, probably won't be doing HHB as it's so close to ShadowWoods (which we're going to). It's smack dab in the middle of Thanksgiving, so I won't have to take any PTO.

Announced so far:
Aosoth
Cult of Fire
Forteresse

OK, just got tickets for Blind Guardian/Grave Digger in Tampa!
edit: they are playing Imaginations from the Other side in its entirety :shock:

Yeah they play here the previous night but I didn't want to shell out 120$ for some other unknown/unwanted bands...so thought of making a nice trip of it.

anybody interested in FTA road-trip to IL?

I think the majority of us that travel for fests are booked for other fests than FTA throughout the rest of the year.

Don't know if this is hitting Atlanta or not (other than the Athens off-shoot the following month)

March 6, 2016 @ The Fillmore Charlotte

One of the best shows I've ever been to. No filler. Grave Digger started at 8pm. 45 minutes of fun heavy metal. BG started at 930 pm and played almost 2 hours. No openers, good sound, great crowd. simply amazing.

This is about a year out, and probably less than 15% chance of happening, but considering dropping most show-going activities for the next year to save up for Beyond the Gates in Bergen next August. Flights to Bergen end up pretty cheap a couple times a year and this fest always has a really stunning lineup. Next year's no different: Mayhem (DMDS set), Vemod, Dark Sonority, Mgla, Cult of Fire, and Negative Plane are the first announcements.

Still working through stuff to see where we are at with this.
Uada
Mgla
Phobocosm
Ulcerate
Auroch
and more added.

Side note: SWMF was a complete total success. I'd be choosing that over HHB every year for a September festival.
