Re: 18 Year Old First Festival Alone

we are a friendly fest, if you don't arrive with mates, you will soon meet loads of like minded folk. Where will you be travelling from? There may be metal heads in your vicinity on here !! I'll be catching the coach up from Bournemouth. Sorry bud but would that be {down from Bournemouth} We are in...

Re: Request - New entrance to the camping sites

The benevolent me would say that it has not been done because not enough people have complained. The cynical me would say that it would encourage more people to carry more of their own food and drink, reducing the profit of the festival so it will never happen :lol: I can see yea point about the fo...

Re: Request - New entrance to the camping sites

So why as it not been done? I would have to agree this would save a lot of walking to the car from tent. Would this not ease ques at the main entrance.

You have been to Bloodstock before, haven't you? At least half the crowd are shitfaced before they even get to the site! :lol:


Is that not tradition though... :lol:

Re: Third Headliner Possibilities

I'm still leaning towards something like this on the Friday - Five Finger Death Punch Body Count Sepultura Exodus Ffdp are the only band who could be considered as a headliner out of the list u gave. The rest are no way big enough sep and Exodus are more middle of the line up. Body count. Possible ...

Re: Camping chairs in the arena megathread

Yes i agree... I saw kids as young as two months old without hear defenders on. A kid or baby is oblivious at that age is to know what is going on around them so why bring them. Some people need parenting skills or just don't deserve kids.

Re: Camping chairs in the arena megathread

Well getting rid of the chairs creates other problems. Imagine all those people in chairs now sitting on the floor. Would be a bitch to walk through them to get to the front. Trying not to step on an outstretched limb. Done it at a fest before in the dark. I'd much prefer to walk through a crowd of...

Re: 2018 Capacity

Bit odd, that new campsite looked pretty empty when I had a look. Also they need to do something about that entrance queue before expanding the capacity any further, I was stuck in that for 3 baking hot hours this year. Maybe open the campsites on Wednesday so everyone isn't trying to get in at the...

Re: Third Headliner Possibilities

of the ones that have been suggested so far: Judas Priest - clearly not gonna happen, a large amount would have already been spent getting Nightwish, and Priest always price themselves out. Helloween - once again, likely to be too expensive for what they are, wouldn't get a huge crowd and wouldn't ...

Here's the site on Google Maps - https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.7387261,-1.6944544,1198m/data=!3m1!1e3 Looks like there's two options. Use the field that's in the area south of of where Midgard & Ironwood meet or open up the field to the East of Ironwood. If they do the later you'd hope they...
