Look, we’re not sure why guys dressed as Darth Vader and Imperial Stormtroopers turn up at every fucking metal festival in the UK anymore – they just do. There were some at Hammerfest 2. Is Star Wars particularly metal? It’s not even that cool in a geek-way anymore – and yet another reason to give Jar Jar Binks the finger.
