I'd be delighted with an Emperor/Sabaton/Amon Amarth headline trilogy. Especially if the likes of Blind Guardian and Kreator got special guest slots. Sounds like the sort of Bloodstock I used to go to!

Book a good alternative to BG on the sophie stage and I'd take that

I'd almost rather Korn, Limp Bizkit and Five Finger over that. If only because I haven't seen them a thousand times. I'd take Kreator and Blind Guardian though.

Part of me wonders if it Korn will be a headliner, new album out later this month and maybe the band don't want to announce until the new album is out? (I hope it isn't Korn anyway :lol: )

I've kind of expecting Korn for a few years now, but if they are they probably wouldn't get announced until after their tour with Limp Bizkit, which I think is next year sometime. We might even get massively unlucky and have both of them.

That would immediately guarantee my non attendance

Wow I can't believe Limp Bizkit are being even mentioned here!
In all likelihood I wouldn't watch the headliners so I guess it wouldn't matter but it would piss so many people off! There have been questionable selections of bands recently but there not stupid! :lol:

Yeah that's pretty much how I felt, although Rob Zombie were fun for a bit. 2015 had alot of gems!

I'd be ok with it, nothing really exciting for me, but then again I'm usually not into the headliners that much anyway (minus Slayer of course!) I hope Kreator play though that would be amazing.

They've put up the dates on FB and DL is on one of the dates.

Book a bigger and better undercard to compensate then, headliners aren't be all and end all


Only for the France and Spain Downloads, rumoured to be at the UK one though! C'mon Bloodstock!

Tour's in December. Imagine waiting all that time for that headliner then getting Korn and LB, the shit storm on here would be amazing :lol:
