Re: Next Announcement

So Bloodstock have announced that at the moment, the festival is due to go ahead as planned. But if it does have to be cancelled, customers will have a choice of a refund or to roll their ticket over to next year. If it does get cancelled, then of course I hope this doesn't hurt the festival's chanc...

Re: Biff Byford Solo Tour

Yep, it was just too expensive for a solo thing. To be fair, he could have blamed the coronavirus, but he fessed up to it just not selling, which is a decent thing to do. But he did try to shift some of the blame to the coronavirus issue which is ridiculous. And I don't see how his recent surgery h...

Re: 2020 Albums

So far this year, I've only listened to 4 new albums: Demons & Wizards - III (excellent, really enjoyed this) Ozzy - Ordinary Man (crap; only 1 song - "Under the Graveyard" - worth keeping on my mp3 player) Body Count - Carnivore (not bad, not as good as 'Manslaughter' or 'Bloodlust', ...

Re: Advice for first timers

Hi there, I'm a first timer on BOA(and UK) this year, so please tell me about payment method on-site. Can I pay for merchandises(T-shirts, Hoodies etc...) or beers/foods by credit card? Or should I trip to the ATM before purchasing something? I appreciate your help with awesome metal heads! Merchan...

Re: Biff Byford Solo Tour

Cancelled due to poor ticket sales. Biff is trying to blame the corona virus panic which is totally laughable considering that these dates have been on sale for 3 months. Personally, I think it's far more likely to be caused by Biff being a greedy bastard and trying to charge Saxon tour prices to wa...

Re: Next Announcement

Just listened to the main Savage Master track on YouTube, and it bloody atrocious. Sounds like they're desperately trying to have a Doro style thing going on, but the trouble is they just sound like a pub band with an appalling bad singer. Why did Bloodstock pick this tripe? Because they've got no ...

Re: Necessity of a Smart-Phone

Of course it depends what you mean by 'essential' but I do think a smart-phone is required in this day and age for many things and would potentially put you at a disadvantage if you didn't have one. That said, I just upgraded my smart-phone and the total cost of the phone was only £130 and it does e...

Re: Next Announcement

Surprised there hasn't been much positivity towards Savage Master on here so far. They sound pretty suited to the majority's taste on this forum - melodic trad/power metal. Yep. They're absolutely the sort of band that should be being booked. It's just that they're not very good. Musically they're ...

That quote could be applied to pretty much anything related to the festival - she hardly comes across as the most professional or diplomatic person in the world at the best of times.
