Re: Next Announcement

It seems like it won't be so much a limit on the numbers that will be the issue (I imagine it'll either be full capacity or cancelled), but which bands are actually able to come over. Have we had anything from other countries, "roadmaps" similar to ours? l

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?

Re: Guess what date gigs will be back to normal (no social distancing)

As Vicky said there will be a contingency plan if the fest can’t go ahead. I'm guessing it will be a one day fest with all english bands. Hopefully, this year will get pushed to 2022 and we keep MF. I think even the one day of British bands, or festival with 5000 people are massively unlikely, they...

Re: Next Announcement

Supposedly the government are saying that every adult in the UK will have their first jab by the end of July, which surely bodes well for Bloodstock if true. Doesn't necessarily mean much though, especially if travel corridors aren't open by then.

Re: So much for Iced Earth...

With any luck being inside will get him to sort his head out and he comes out not an arsehole. That's what I hope too. I kinda feel sorry for a lot of them. There's been a real new kind of crazy in the U.S. all lead astray by a leader that's not be held accountable for his actions thanks to 43 real...

Re: Album of the Year - ROUND 2

Enslaved winning show's you've all got taste. I think. Because that snoozefest of a Demons and Wizards album in second place suggests you don't :lol: I haven't heard the Enslaved album, although if its winning I should, but I kind of agree with Demons and Wizards. I loved the bands first two albums...

Re: So...Marilyn Manson's evil image isn't just an act. (Allegedly)

It seems that he's an absolute scumbag to me - it goes beyond a bit of sex play, supposedly he would do things like rape her in her sleep. But I agree, its a troublesome trend to have record labels dropping artists at the first sign of trouble. Its a lot of back and forth, and you honestly wonder wh...

Re: 2021 albums

Steven Wilson - I knew this was going to be a different album for him and a lot 'poppier' and on first listen, that is the case. A couple of decent tracks, but most of the rest doesnt grab me yet. I'm not on of the fans that is calling him every name under the sun, but this one likely isnt for me. ...

Re: Album of the Year - ROUND 2

A return to the earth below is a fantastic song but the rest of the album didn't grab me. Maybe the brilliance of that song over shadowed the rest of the songs. I'm in the same boat. I loved their other two albums, but nothing I've heard of this album has done anything for me. Maybe I should give i...

Re: Album of the Year - ROUND 2

Still cant believe noone else voted for Oceans of Slumber in the first round. May well have been my number 1 :( A return to the earth below is a fantastic song but the rest of the album didn't grab me. Maybe the brilliance of that song over shadowed the rest of the songs.

Re: Next Announcement

Personally I think Bloodstock should start looking into the possibility of a reduced-capacity, one-day (or at least, no camping) event on the same grounds, with social distancing enforcement an option if needed. Probably only British bands, perhaps only one stage, and certainly limited traders or ot...
