Re: Next Announcement

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...

Re: The UK political thread (formerly independence thread)

The proposed Labour policies are nothing like policies in Venezuela. They are modeled off policies used in Norway / Sweden / Germany which you may notice are all doing pretty well with a happier population and less inequality than the UK The thing is, until the last couple of days I haven't heard J...

Re: Next Announcement

As far as I could tell they sold a lot less weekend tickets than normal this year judging from the fact the camp sites was far less cramped than normal with Ironwood being half empty. Recon they had locked in Priest a fair while ago and are now suffering with the budget due to lack of sales this year?

Re: Batoushka & Malevolent Creation - 3 UK shows

Just been on The Dome website and nothing listed on there :? Trying to find out if it's the real Batushka as I'd be interested if it is! For the Manchester gig its specifically listed as being Krzysztof's band so looks like the real thing. The promoter has already said the tickets go on sale tomorr...

Re: The UK political thread (formerly independence thread)

It's not an enviable choice this election, but I'm willing to take a risk on Labours radical plans. It is a very big risk, however, and people should have their eyes open to that fact. I dont think its all that radical in the grand scheme of things really. Its a big change for the UK for sure and s...

Re: Next Announcement

Thing with Facebook is it does have a much larger audience and so is semi useful, yes you are going to get a load of bullshit in there but thousands of people on Facebook with bullshit is probably more indicative than a forum with maybe a hundred or so active users. Also some of it will be due to Fa...
