Re: Next Announcement

The Brutal Assault ticket was about £85 for the fest, so far cheaper than BOA. But mainly it's cheaper cos the beer/food is much cheaper, so while they'll be the cost of the flights to add on, the beer is about £1.50 a pint and a double rum and coke was about £2, so if you drink a lot at fests (as ...

Re: Next Announcement

If you factor in the ticket for Brutal Assault costs far less and the drinks are far cheaper, then the whole festival expense even with flights generally costs me less than Bloodstock. Very off topic, but how is it so much cheaper? I've been looking to do a European festival for the first time (was...

Re: Next Announcement

That announcement means Thursday is probably the best day for me right now. Nightflight, Nekrogoblikon, Raised by Owls and The Crawling are all good, although I've seen Nekrogoblikon last week and watching Raised by Owls in two weeks. They'll have to do a lot better to tempt me. Interesting the way ...

Re: Next Announcement

If they're gonna continue with the more mainstream bands the they could do with adding another stage at some point and bring back some folk/power to try to get the best of both worlds Considering the quality of the bands they are getting in the last few years I'm pretty sure they can't afford to ex...

Re: worst band on the lineup ?

For the festival, Bury Tomorrow. Why were these booked, especially as a top 3 band? They are passed their glory days anyway, and were never that good, but top 3? With so many other similar bands who are these for? Definitely don't fit on a 20th anniversary bill. That band had glory days?! Chart wis...

Re: Next Announcement

There is either a money issue, or a band availability problem; or a straight up choice to go in a slightly different direction with booking imo. (Maybe they're just testing the water for a broadening of the scope though - it's lost me mind). Its definitely not entirely by choice, they would have an...

Re: worst band on the lineup ?

My god so much choice! For me, Hatebreed. Musically trash, fans are trash, completely unredeemable. For the festival, Bury Tomorrow. Why were these booked, especially as a top 3 band? They are passed their glory days anyway, and were never that good, but top 3? With so many other similar bands who a...

Re: Next Announcement

also is it just me or is nuclear blast taking over i get they are a sponser but over half the lineup are signed to them Its always been that way, they used to just play a Nuclear Blast promo DVD on the main screen all day every day. I'd be absolutely fine with it if they picked the Nuclear Blast ba...

Re: Next Announcement

Also say Nekrogoblikon. Saw them last night, they were pretty good, and would fill the Evil Scarecrow slot pretty decently. The singer was a bit weird though, very little crowd interaction which doesn't really work for a gimmick band. Play-for-free joke band ? or are they bigger than that ? I'd say...

Re: Next Announcement

Forums in general have died a lot from the old days, as people move more and more to the bigger sites like Facebook, Reddit, Twitter. I mean there's a politcal point to make about corporations coming in somewhere new and taking out the little guy yet again... But it also doesn't help that there isn'...

Re: Next Announcement

Conjurer - play everywhere, getting a bit boring the amount I've seen them. Orange Goblin - play everywhere, were always boring Saxon - play everywhere, bland, uninteresting and overrated. The Sophie stage is a bit more interesting this announcement. Unleash the Archers are the kind of band that sho...

Re: Next Announcement

Yeah I reckon Saxon are nailed on as Sunday special guests. They're also doing an Italian festival called Rock the Castle in July. Big chance they'll do all of Europe but Vicky will forget about Saxon for Bloodstock. :P I like Saxon but am I the only one hoping they aren't playing? Would rather som...
