Re: Next Announcement

Not really a rumour but Brutal Assault and Obscene Extreme have just postponed to 2022, and Metaldays are making a call by the end of this month but dont sound hopeful so we could be seeing the collapse of the late summer touring circuit. If that happens I expect that Bloodstock will still go ahead ...

Re: Next Announcement

I think it will happen, just dont pin your hopes on the lineup staying as it is. Likely to be more replacements due to bands dropping through travel restrictions etc

Re: Next Announcement

If they have to run a smaller event due to restrictions I think it would likely be its own event with its own tickets etc and the tickets for BOA already in existence would either roll over or be refunded. Reason I think they would go that route is it avoids the issue above of people complaining the...

Re: Wednesday bands?

As far as I know the plan is for there to be bands on the Wednesday but I doubt they will announce anything until they are certain the festival will actually go ahead

Re: Next Announcement

Eugh Architects would be even worse than Parkway. Plus after ticket sales bombed in '19, would they risk another 'core headliner? Well apparently Parkway sold a lot of day tickets which are pretty lucrative. Also I dont think fests are gonna have difficulty selling tickets for next year as a lot ar...

Re: Next Announcement

They did say they wanted to book Merciful Fate this year and couldnt for some reason so id assume that would be their initial go to. But since most festivals are rolling over line ups etc its possible whatever stopped Bloodstock booking them this year may still apply. Personally hope its someone els...

Re: European Metal Festival Alliance

Been really enjoying it so far. Kampfar, Cult of Fire, Alien Weaponry and Rotting Christ all put on good sets and great to see some of the effort being put into the production. Mate convinced me to watch Amenra as well which wasnt my thing musically but looked very good. Still no replacement for a p...

Re: Next Announcement

New sets, not sure if its a live stream or recording sets but suspect its recorded due to all the bands being spread out everywhere.

Tickets go on sale on Friday for €6.66

Re: Next Announcement

Its gonna be a fucking weird year getting barely any festival announcements to get excited for since most fests 90% of the line up is rolled over

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

Yeah im not expecting my Metaldays ticket to be refunded but they will probably let it roll over to next year
