While there’s little to separate The Dillinger Escape Plan and Sunday’s headliners, Four Year Strong in terms of draw, there’s only one band’s performance on everyone’s lips all weekend.

Sunday Slaylist: Hevy Festival 2011 first announcement

Hevy Festival 2011 Thrash Hits

In case we haven’t made it obvious by now, we hate writing about festival line-up announcements. Every couple of weeks or so we have to knock out a news piece at whatever godforsaken hour the festival in question has deemed is the acceptable time for news of the latest bookings to be released, feigning interest in a half-dozen shitty bands surrounding a single name we’re actually interested in seeing.

Thankfully, the guys over at Hevy Festival have no time for such dicking about either, as they went and announced a whopping 25 bands in their first 2011 line-up announcement earlier this week. It only seems fair and proper that we give them a Slaylist in recognition of the amount of ballache they saved us by doing so.
