According to a posting at Italy's All About Chaos webzine, the organizers of Italy's Gods Of Metal festival are asking for the public's help in choosing the bands to headline next year's (tenth) edition of the annual two-day event. These are the potential headliners you can vote for:
GUNS N' ROSES
SYSTEM OF A DOWN
MANOWAR (with orchestra)
To vote, just send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and write down your preference. You can choose only two bands.
Out of all the e-mails received, ten people will win free entrance to the festival.
