I guess you just have shitty musical tastes ;-) For me, it's the best Bloodstock lineup in years.

Re: Bloodstock Quiz

I just made this quiz to guess all the main stage bands throughout the festival's history. Hopefully it's more accurate than Bloodstock's own History page! https://www.sporcle.com/games/themasterofpop/bloodstock-festival-2005-2018 Well that's embarrassing. I had a complete blank, and only managed 5...

Re: LIST TIME! Definitely / Likely / Maybe / Avoid.

If you don't check out bands... how will you ever find out new bands? Haha People's preferences are what they are. I don't see the appeal in paying a lot of money for a festival, only to spend it sat in the campsites talking and drinking. But plenty of other people get great enjoyment from doing ju...

This shouldn't even be a consideration. Ross The Boss all the way. Seriously. He's been my live show of the year for 2 of the last 3 years.

It's very much the latter, sadly. I too was unaware of any of these bands before the announcement. Having now listened to them, none of them are for me. Bloodred Hourglass sounded OK for a bit until the vocals kicked in.

Re: Next Announcement

if people are criticizing BOA for booking big bands and failing to fill the undercard, how is Amplified any better? It's not, and that's precisely why I haven't gone to Amplified yet. They have typically 3 medium sized name bands and an undercard filled with underground bands. Which is fine to a po...

Re: Themed stages

They are now at the stage that they are booking bands such as Judas Priest and the Scorpions that cost upwards of £1M each. No they don't. Yes, they're very expensive, almost certainly the most expensive bands to ever play Bloodstock. But they're not being paid 7 figures (I've been told the actual ...

Re: Next Announcement

I do feel that the overall level of the bands playing (headliners aside) is far lowerthan previously....oris that just me getting old and grumpy No, I think you're right. I can only assume it's because they've biased the budget towards getting bigger bands for the main stage, so they have less left...

Re: Next Announcement

Sulpher are an interesting one. Assuming it's the same band, I saw them supporting Christian Death nearly 20 years ago. I quite liked them at the time, but haven't heard anything from them since then.

No thanks. It just won't work out well for a festival of Bloodstock's size.

Re: Next Announcement

Blind River are a great booking and make a very welcome return. Sulpher are a blast from the past. I last saw them nearly 20 years ago! But mostly, Thursday feels like a bit of a wasted opportunity. It's the perfect excuse to have some decent party bands to get the festival started, and it doesn't l...

Re: Next Announcement

I'd heard of Broken Teeth, Feed the Rhino, Fallujah, Hark and Cambion tbf. I'd still see you're in the minority in terms of festival goers though, and even you haven't heard of Forever Still. Heh. Forever Still were one of the few on that list that I did know. I'm guessing to some extent it's a reg...
