At this stage, I'd just be happy for it to go ahead and I know the team are doing everything within their power.


With you 100%. I don't care who gets announced at this stage. I, like everybody else in these parts, just need it to happen.

Re: Next Announcement

I'm preparing for more changes. I'm getting increasingly pessimistic about the prospects of Devin Townsend, Unleash The Archers and Bloodywood being allowed to travel to the UK given the current state of Covid in their countries. Bullet For My Valentine to be announced as replacement friday headlin...

Re: Next Announcement

Well, I imagine more richer bands like Devin Townsend would be able to afford the hotel stay. I think you're misrepresenting both how much money Devin has and how much he's being paid for this appearance. It's not even close to economically feasible for him and his band and crew to spend 10 days in...

Re: Next Announcement

Bleed from Within are the worst band I have ever seen Wowzers, it's probably States of Panic for me (BOA '13, Sophie stage, Sunday) didn't even get through one song. King 810 were mighty shit in 2017. The Dark Funeral set in 2013 was also infamously bad. I think at this stage I couldn't care less w...

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

So...any news on whether we're getting an actual lineup or is it just UK bands? Can we get bands coming in? Its way too early to call it. At the moment Bloodstock is planning on running in the existing format and with as many of the existing bands as possible. In the event of there being travel res...

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

Latest update I've seen: But as the summer progresses and vaccination levels rise, events will become more viable. “The vaccine’s rolling out at an incredibly good speed – we’re quite confident that we’re going ahead,” Greenfield says of Bloodstock, which is due to begin 11 August. “We can adapt so...

Re: Best Bands Who've Only Played Bloodstock Once

Even though I wasn't there, I want to add Kroh because I sadly missed that one but I saw them as an opening band in London back in 2015 and loved them! I heard they're back together so hopefully they'll play Bloodstock again and one that I'm at. I saw that Kroh set and loved it at the time, but the...
