To play devil's advocate, you could say BOA are still doing the same but have moved onto other genres/reviving old genres instead of promoting new ones. Booking nu-metal acts like Stuck Mojo and Kill II This could be bookings in the same vain as Edguy and Saxon were a decade ago, except with hindsight Saxon have gone onto have a revival SM haven't yet. So now these kinds of bookings are just misguided attempts at trying to repeat the same success they've had.


Ehh??! :lol:

Oh god please no. They've played twice fairly recently, and didn't exactly set the place on fire either time. Considering their tour has just finished, I'm hoping we get Katatonia added soon, although I'm not exactly holding out hope.
BANDS I LIKE FOR BLOODSTOCK!!!

I'd be happy with them, not likely though we have had our good announcements for the year I don't hold much hope for anything else to be excited about

My bad :lol:

Easy way of putting it would be that people say BOA used to book bands no one would touch with a barge pole like Saxon etc but when you think about it they still do with the likes of Stuck Mojo etc. It's the same principle just different genre. So far it doesn't look to have as no band has as of yet had a saxon style resurgence but it is early days

I am still holding out hope for any of:
Warlock
Metal Church
Coroner
Sodom

I fear I will be sadly disappointed.

Reckon we'll get an announcement today? Wouldn't be surprised if the next one is the Thursday bands.

Sodom are at Damnation so you can rule them out.

Are Coroner doing the rounds again? I was really impressed with them last time, and it's certainly been a little while since they last played.

Way back in 2011, I really enjoyed them but I don't recall them drawing a big crowd.

That said if they played I'd be happy.

Battle Beast hell yeah! Were awesome recently at the Underworld, cant wait to see em again. This slot seems a bit wierd though, Thursdays normally party night and BB surely deserve a decent main stage slot rather than this?

Devilment I haven't actually heard, but COF are one of my favourite bands, so anything involving Dani is of interest.

Not bothered about the unknown bands, but this is a great announcement just for them 2.

It's about bloody time they booked Battle Beast! I agree that the Thursday night slot is a little bid of an odd placement for them but this will be the first time the Thursday night has held any appeal to me so I'll definitely be there for them.

As with others, I couldn't give a monkey's about the unknown bands as I'm used to it being a deluge of noisy crap by now, so the only other band of interest in this announcement is Devilment. Certainly not a 'wow' booking by any means but given some of the other awfulness on the mainstage this year, it could've been far, far worse.

Battle Beast is an excellent addition, and while the Thursday night slot is a bit odd given the bands which usually play, I think I'd rather see them for an hour in the tent at the end of "party" night instead of 35-40 mins mid afternoon.

Not heard of any of the others except Ba'al, who I'll certainly be making a effort to see.
