Re: Next Announcement

2020 lineup was trash. 2021 lineup is trash because its the same lineup minus Behemoth. With the extra day just being a few bands on Sophie, I'm not expecting anything good. Thursday is just all the throwaway stages open. With there being only a few main bands still to announce. I'm out again.

Fairly certain they have bands on the Thursday, could be wrong, but I haven't been for a while, but they also have shite loads of entertainment on the pre-days. Then when it kicks off properly, they have about 6 or 7 stages.

Re: Next Announcement

The capacity of Download is 110,000 this year and they are charging £243 for 3 days camping +£5.50 postage. Bloodstock maximum attendance has been 18,000. I went to Sonsiphere when it was 60,000 people - it reminded me of some post-apocalyptic refugee camp. You have to be off your face all the time...

Re: Next Announcement

That hardly translates to moving outdoor and trying to capture 10k - 15k people. They'd have to book a much stronger lineup and use a site that they wouldn't be getting for such a low cost, thus having to charge customers much more and not giving your tickets away. With their current lineups, there...

Re: Next Announcement

Can you imagine a HRH open-air fest? Charging circa £100 a ticket for 2 big name bands, a couple of medium-size bands plus a load of no-name filler? Yeah, can see that going down well... Skindred and Saxon have headlined HrH before and Paradise Lost have headlined Hammerfest. 2-3k capacity festival...

Re: Next Announcement

The niche festivals have caught up and Bloodstock has sleepwalked into being just another festival. The problem is BOA just doesn't seem special and hasn't for years. When you consider there are so many rock and metal festivals out there and even the other festivals are now putting on Metal stages ...

Re: Next Announcement

If they really want to get to 20,000+ which I believe they do, they have to improve the Sophie Stage. I've made some good discoveries there, but the bands are nowhere near big enough for a decent size festival Damnation's lower stages always have much bigger bands than Bloodstock and that's a fract...

Re: Next Announcement

If they're gonna continue with the more mainstream bands the they could do with adding another stage at some point and bring back some folk/power to try to get the best of both worlds I think they need something else on whilst headliners are on. I understand they want the whole crowd to watch the m...
