Re: So Venom.....

Sabaton's crowd was much bigger than Trivium's. Nothing against Trivium but that was embarrassingly small for a headliner, probably the smallest headliner crowd I've seen at Bloodstock.

Really hope that Venom aren't headlining as that would be really weak.

Re: Next announcement

I'm surprised anyone was expecting a huge announcement. :lol: Savage Messiah will do. Much more preferable to the alternatives that I was thinking would be announced. I was referring to the organisers' post on this forum about the announcement - the word 'HUGE' was used which I felt was a tad over ...

Re: Next announcement

Well that's pretty underwhelming.

Savage Messiah and bunch of unsigned bands and bands hardly anyone's heard of? Wouldn't exactly call that a 'HUGE' announcement...

Re: What's wrong with Bloodstock

Whilst I have no problem with the festival doing what it needs to do to turn a profit, I do agree that they need to drop the whole "by the fans, for the fans" slogan as it's clearly not and to proclaim it as such is just disingenuous.

Re: Burgerkill bump up.

God, I hope not. Need a band far more established than them to play on the main stage.

Re: Sophie Lancaster stage disabled access

Shows how much attention I've been paying when I've gone in there! I stand corrected.

Re: Sophie Lancaster stage disabled access

From what I can remember, there isn't a disabled viewing platform in the Sophie tent.

Re: What's wrong with Bloodstock

European power metal bands simply don't draw the required numbers in the UK for Bloodstock to book them based on the amount of money they charge and the high-up slot on the bill they would expect. It's a shame, but the harsh truth is the music you like just isn't popular enough to populate a line-u...

Re: What's wrong with Bloodstock

Whilst I admire the time and care that obviously went in to the original post, unfortunately, the OPs sentiments (however well expressed they may be) can be summed up with the same points that so many others that have expressed dissatisfaction with the direction Bloodstock is headed: - The festival ...

Re: Ticket Prices

I'll be quite interested to see if ticket sales go up or down this year. I know quite a few people that aren't bothering this year because they don't like the lineup (myself included) Pretty sure the organisers' thought process is that any regulars or semi-regulars who be lost this year through the...

Re: Next announcement

I don't think they book German bands anymore. :sniff: Aye, the line-up really needs some German bands on it. Rather enjoyed Beyond the Black who supported Saxon & Hell, would be good for a low Sophie slot. Not sure which show you went to on that tour but I saw BTB at Leeds on the Saxon/Hell tou...

Re: Overall, Do You Like This Years Lineup?

It's definitely Sabaton that stick out in my mind as being too soon a repeat, played 2 years ago, and have toured the UK many times since. Yep. They feel like the token nod towards those of us that like power metal. It's like "well, we need a power metal band, so we'll book Sabaton". Don'...
