Re: Next Announcement

It makes you wonder what the point is when the only bands of any note they'll have that day will be the bands that were already playing - Night Flight, Necrogoblikon and Raised by Owls. The point is its a bonus, I dont think its intended to be some big extra thing to market long term and they dont ...

Re: Next Announcement

As far as I know there is lots of insurance that will only pay out under force majeure, different country but this was the case with Metaldays where they could only cancelled when the Slovenian government clarified the long term plans Since the UK government refuses to discuss anything more than a f...

Re: Next Announcement

Most festivals iv seen are rolling over as much of this years line up as possible and I expect Bloodstock to do the same. Given bands work in festival runs its probably financially nonviable for them to do anything else even if they wanted to

Re: Next Announcement

Metaldays cancelled today and Midgardsblot have said they expect to cancel so given along with Wacken / Summer Breeze etc it looks like the writing is on the wall for this summer.

Bloodstock will hold out for the government to cancel it rather than them but think its inevitable at this point

Re: Next Announcement

Im a bit more optimistic, if the peak happens before the end of April we could start seeing the lockdown relaxed by the end of May and so if that happens we could be back to some level of normality by July which might allow the August fests to go ahead.

Not something id put money on though

Re: Next Announcement

btw for those who have been talking about it on the Thursday Q&A they mentioned they tried to get Mercyful Fate and couldnt but would be trying to book them for a future Bloodstock

Didnt give a reason for why they couldnt but guessing a lot of the time they cant discuss that stuff

Re: Advice for first timers

Hi, 1 ) Beer was £4.50 a pint last year and for a main meal your looking at £7 - £10 and the quality is generally good 2 ) You can see a map of last years site layout from last year at the link below to get an idea and it rarely changed much https://www.bloodstock.uk.com/downloads/Bloodstock_Disney_...

Re: Next Announcement

Also, one of the few demographics I can't find a biggish fest for is Power Metal, which everyone wants BOA to book. Could be I'm not looking in the right place (happily stand corrected if I've missed it) but does show there isn't the market for it here. Im not into Power Metal but a lot of friends ...

Re: Next Announcement

I think the issue is that last year weekend ticket numbers were clearly massively down. It was easy to tell from any of the campsites by how much more room there was than normal and by the quicker queues to get in on Thursday. They had probably already booked a load of the big acts like Priest expec...

Re: Next Announcement

Raised by Owls are pretty perfect as a fun Thursday night party band and Anakim are on my Yes list from last year but I cant remember what they actually sound like so will likely check them out. Rest aint my thing but tbh im happy with 2 bands on a Thursday as its more party night than bands night f...

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

Moonsorrow are playing Rockharz Open Air (Germany) early July, and Månegarm Open Air (Sweden) late August, which leaves a neat little hole in their festival schedule... :eyes: Really hope they play but hoping if they do they are a Sophie headliner as they need longer set than 40 minutes due to thei...

Re: Next Announcement

Orange Goblin are a band I keep meaning to check out. Any recommendations on albums to start with would be appreciated. :yes: A Eulogy for the Damned is probably the best entry point imo. I also really like Back from the Abyss As for the announcement is fairly solid for me. Orange Goblin are great ...

Re: The UK political thread (formerly independence thread)

Yes Scandinavians do generally pay more tax than us and get excellent public services and infrastructure in return. If you want that level of public services and infrastructure is of course a choice but the point was that doing that has been shown to work very well economically and isnt some crazy e...
