Re: The (speculative) Weather Thread

In general any forecast should be treated with caution - all models are wrong. From 2-5 days the forecasts are fine, but they should be interpreted as a general picture. You certainly shouldn't take an hourly forecast beyond 2 days as a certainty, or even 6 hours in advance. Accuweather giving 90 da...

Re: The (speculative) Weather Thread

You're right not to. Any forecast more than ten days is bullshit.

Awesome, cheers! :D Looks like I don't have to trawl through their whole discography in preparation then!

It's their best album too.

Re: The (speculative) Weather Thread

Saturday in 2013 was bone dry - my only Bloodstock experience so far.

They're more reliable than Accuweather.

Re: Any solo travellers?

I'll be travelling to Bloodstock alone. I might be meeting someone there who said if he's going he'll arrive on the Friday. I should get in touch with him about that though.

Re: Blind Guardian

I think it might depend on how long a slot they get. If they only get an hour (which is standard for SG) then they might stick to a best of set as Imaginations is nearly that long played live, probably only give enough time for 1 more track and as stated it wasn't that big over here at the time. If...

Re: The (speculative) Weather Thread

Accuweather is a load of crap. Nobody has a clue what the weather will be beyond ten days and Accuweather is wasting people's time by providing daily forecasts four weeks in advance.

Re: Camp Loners & Newbies 2017

I'm not travelling from Dundee either, fortunately. :lol: I don't live in Scotland anymore. Been in Reading for two-and-a-half years. Forgot to change my location.

Re: Camp Loners & Newbies 2017

I will be camping at Bloodstock for the first time this year - I've only been to one day of the festival before, Saturday in 2013 to see Avantasia - and I'll be coming alone so it would be nice to meet up with others who are going alone. I do not, however, use Facebook so I can't join the group! Is ...
