Is this from Twitter again? Surely not for this year, especially after how badly Suck Mojo went down (I know very little about either, but aren't they pretty similar)? I love that Insomnium are announcing soon, Edguy have a gap....lets chase after a band people have only jokingly requested.
BANDS I LIKE FOR BLOODSTOCK!!!

They had better not start booking good bands now i've decided to laugh the fest off this year....

Bodycount? FFS :x She really does seem to have appalling taste :lol:

I can't see them booking Edguy, I just have little belief in them booking any power metal apart from UK bands or the couple who are really popular here (Blind Guardian, Sabaton, Helloween). They all charge too much, being that they're so much popular elsewhere. I'd be happy to eat my words though, despite not even being much of a fan of Edguy it would still be nice to see bands like this being booked.

Insomnium would be a great booking and one I can see happening.

Body Count are by far and away a better band than SM (they could actually rap for a start) they're the band that got famous for the "cop killer" song. I quite like early and the latest BC, although not very suited for BOA but if it's between them and another 'core band I'd happily settle for BC.

I'd be happy with Insomnium, Edguy and Body Count (though my bingo would be ruined :lol: ) but are their really the spaces left for them?

Yeah saw that on Twitter the other day. Personally never listened to Body Count so no idea what they're like, although she could be making initial contact with these bands to book them for 2018 and beyond, not necessarily this year :)

I quite liked Body Count back in the day but this is 20+ years too late

She seems to want to book every other cack never-made-it rap metal band from the mid 90s, so Clawfinger must be imminent, along with Senser and One Minute Silence.

I saw Body Count last year and they were pretty good, far better than chelsea grin and king thingy sound, I wouldn't imagine she's trying to get them for this year though, it's probably a bit late I would imagine.

Go back and read that again, and then tell me how on earth they could ever be suitable for Bloodstock.
