Re: Next Announcement

What made you buy a ticket in the first place? This is quite possibly the worst BOA line up there's ever been.... and I'm including the times it was a 1.5 day fest in 2005 and 2006. If looking for something else to do during the same weekend, the best festival in Europe just happens to be taking pl...

Re: Next Announcement

Glad I sold my ticket, didn't think it would get any better :lol:

Also Bloodstock has had 9 bands on Main Stage each on Fri/Sat/Sun every year for a long time now, just checking back on some of the previous year posters shows this.

Re: Next Announcement

The Sophie headliners playing after the main stage headliners are usually on way too late in the day for most people, especially on a Sunday. Perhaps they could do what Sonisphere used to do and a few Euro fests where you have the Tent headliner on at the same time as the Main stage headliner and t...

Re: Next Announcement

Yeah, it's definitely a miss for me & my group this year (ten of us altogether in 2018) - some are doing a day at Download, some are going to the eurofests. I'm going to see the bands I thought BOA might book (Delain, Helloween, VoA) on their own tours, and catch Saxon & Winterfylleth at th...

Re: Next Announcement

Any one have ideas in how to best sell a ticket? This was one announcement too wrong for me so taken the decision to go to a different festival (Sorry if I shouldn't post this here)

That's what I don't understand as Nuclear Blast have way better bands in their roster that would fit Bloodstock

Re: Next Announcement

Oh fuck, Hatebreed At least they're last on on the Sophie stage Sunday night so are very easy to dodge. This is certainly true, and it's quite funny that they've been dropped down to the Sophie stage. Not necessarily, Sophie headline imo is the second best slot of the festival as not only is it las...

Re: Next Announcement

Well I'm disappointed as nothing for me with this announcement, but will have to check out some of those bands as not heard most of them.

Whilst I'm happy to see Paradise Lost bumped to SG, it is surprising and the festival must be really struggling to book bands...

Re: Next Announcement

I'm not very tech savvie so am unsure how I would find out about all the gigs otherwise Same for me! I don't have Facebook o...

Re: Devin Townsend UK/IRE Tour 2019

Re: At the Gates Tour

Ah maybe its the South Western Railway which affects me since I travel through Waterloo when I go to gigs normally. They're on strike throughout December until after new year - services still run but fewer and last one back is 10:45pm for me. It stopped me from going to see Kataklysm & Fleshgod ...

Re: Being sober at gigs

I never have a drink at gigs - I want to remember the show I went to. Not to mention drinks are overpriced at venues and I have the weakest bladder in the universe :lol:

At festivals I will have some drinks in the campsite though :D

Re: At the Gates Tour

Wow electric ballroom changed to underworld. At the gates popularity must be on the slide. Well if the weather goes to crap in December at least I've got the refund option until 10 days before the event now :lol: It's worth mentioning there's a huge train strike at the moment which affects travel f...

Re: Death Metal

There is Memoriam, and at a stretch Dark Tranquillity / Cattle Decapitation so there is some but would be good to have some more!

Ps. I feel this way about Folk metal which is COMPLETELY neglected most years...there's always some Death Metal every year so I'm sure more will be booked.
