Re: Next Announcement

I didn't intend to ruffle feathers with the miracles comment. I doubt there is much bloodstock can do if there are problems. Right now the team are balancing: - Bands (and staff possibly?) physically able to get here with the travel restrictions in place - The entire audience having received vaccin...

Re: Next Announcement

Still seems unlikely to go ahead. Kretaor very good replacement for Mercyful Fate though. You could argue not big enough, but they're massively popular. Sadly, I think I must agree. In the fullness of time, I think it will have to be delayed. While we have vaccines and all the bits being rolled out...

To be honest, that lineup page changes almost every time I look at it. Dimmu Borgir were gone for a while too. I don't think I would read anything into it until the announcement happens.

Re: Next Announcement

It seems most people are predicting BMTH or Architects or whatever pony is being trotted out as metal apparently these days. But going with something else, given the current line-up, if it now had to be all UK-only, that chops a significant amount of bands from the roster, does it not? I mean, if I'...

Re: Next Announcement

It seems like it won't be so much a limit on the numbers that will be the issue (I imagine it'll either be full capacity or cancelled), but which bands are actually able to come over. Have we had anything from other countries, "roadmaps" similar to ours? l Sorry what I mean was the *with ...

Re: So...Marilyn Manson's evil image isn't just an act. (Allegedly)

Well, hands up anyone that doesn't have a disgruntled ex? Extra hands up, anyone not have at least one ex that didn't try some sort of revenge type stuff on them by saying messed up stuff to anyone who'd listen in an attempt to make you look bad? It happens! Sorry, it just does. As for this case, wh...

Re: Next Announcement

the festival has a number of contingencies in place, one of which is an all british affair with reduced crowd. That doesn't make sense, they have a massive drive on to sell tickets as it is! VIP already sold out last year so I can't see how they could reduce crowd at all. If anything with news of v...

Re: Next Announcement

just to throw some numbers out there, a quick Google suggests there are 55 million adults in the UK. It's just shy of 29 weeks to Bloodstock, which means that we would need to vaccinate around 1.9 million people per week to have given everyone at least one dose by then. we're currently well over th...

Re: Next Announcement

You have to look at the logic of things. OK so first of all, let's assume there is no guidance issued by the Government that outright prevents festivals going ahead. There are still very concerning things in that article. For instance, Ray of Slam Dunk says “The government are going to stop social d...

Dino Cazares has responded to a tweet from Vicky saying: "I'm Down to hear who it's going to be" - but then someone responded to that saying it's someone who has never headlined before so who knows. https://twitter.com/DinoCazares/status/1292715812629827586 EDIT: he responded to someone e...
