Re: Next Announcement

Obviously it's about availability, but I can think of loads of bands who could potentially headline BOA in the future. This year it seems to be a bit limited, apart from Megadeth and Cooper, there's possibly Deep Purple and Scorpions if BOAs budget stretches that far. Five Finger Death Punch, Rob Zo...

Re: Next Announcement

I think the concerns are more that bands like Korn or Limp Bizkit would want to play high on the bill and people rightly want those slots to go to bands that are regularly requested (e.g Helloween, Emperor, Devin Townsend Project, Manowar, Saxon, Kreator). I have no hate for Korn or Limp Bizkit (se...

Re: Next Announcement

So would One Direction, Justin Timberlake and Beyoncé. They're not going to be playing either. Your point is? If you want Marilyn Manson, Limp Bizkit or Korn then go to Download. Simple. What's with the urge to turn Bloodstock into a mini Download? And for the record I've actually seen Korn, and pe...

Re: Next Announcement

Some of these comments are fucking ridiculous. Korn, Marilyn Manson and Limp Buzkit are more well known than 90% of the bands on BOA's lineups past and present, get over it. These 3 bands would also sell more tickets and bring more attention to BOA than 90% of the bands that play and I for one welco...

Re: Next Announcement

So many amazing bands in Europe next summer, surely there's no way the organiser can mess next year up.

Re: Next Announcement

If we're to say that Emperor and Amon Amarth are 2 of our headliners next year, it's already looking like the weakest BOA to date in my opinion. However, if both these bands are special guests then it could turn in to a very strong year.

Re: Next Announcement

Marily Manson did not ask for £1m, I think you've got your facts completely wrong. Alt fests entire budget for bands was only 800k. However he did ask for his payment up front vefore playing which was apparently just over 100k.

Re: Confirmation for next year

The fact of the matter is, Download books whatever is popular in the rock/metal world and so does BOA now to a lesser degree. As I said previously, there's a reason why BOA's main stage isn't full of these smaller European Metal bands, because the festival wouldn't exist anymore. Yeah booking a refo...
