The first @BLOODSTOCKFEST band announcement is looking awesome !!!!!!!!!"


and the first shitstorm on the forums is also looking awesome :lol:

This to me makes me AA is more likely, they're ready to announce some bands but obviously they can't just now....because they have an upcoming tour...

Give it until the 30th anniversary and they can repeat the cycle :eyes:

I agree on the thought that it'll be Amon Amarth.

I'm guessing the tease for earlier in October was them working on an agreement to announce a different headliner/sub and it simply hasn't come off.

Do we think, from Vicky's tweet, that we may be getting a handful of bands?

That's how I'd read it, hopefully at least 3-4

I hope we get a few bands announced at the same time as it gives us more to discuss/complain about :D

That again makes me think that the band they were going to announce are one that has an upcoming tour as well. If it's a band playing continental fests then why haven't they announced them yet? Unless there is a tour... and lets face it BOA aren't adverse to booking bands who have only just toured the winter before (yes i'm aware could be a ton of other reasons but to me this one makes the most sense).

Vader and Amon Amarth among a couple of others I'm guessing. I also think Acid Reign may be back

Doubt Acid Reign would play 2 years in a row, if they were I think they wouldn't be announced for a while yet, they only announced a UK tour last week.

Eh? A band playing a country twice in over 10 years isn't a rarity?

In fact it would only be their third UK gig since 1999. Half the attendance wasn't even born then. :lol:


Well I can kind of understand Warlock's point, playing the same one off festival date twice in three years kind of diminishes the uniqueness of the event. Although in the grand scheme of things, twice in three years when they've only done one other UK date this millennium is still a hell of a rarity.

Well, I'm still hoping for Megadeth at least, but I'm hugely biast :lol:


Yeah thats kind of what I mean, plus they have been about abroad. But yeah I guess looking at it that way it is still a rarity.

Ah right I didn't know that, just when you see their name on the poster you don't always know about them doing a certain album.

That's true, could they not do a normal none album set?

Either way I'm not complaining, I'd be happy for them to play again! Was just thinking why they couldn't do a sub slot, for example

Halloween announcement then (if at all this month), would of thought they would of started hyping/hinting if it was to be on Monday though (being the first announcement and all).

Well even if they did a normal set most of the material would be drawn from Nightshade and Welkin anyway, doubt they would be able to headline off the back of it though. If they did an album in full set then they have the draw of it being a rare show+ album in full which would probably make them a headliner.

First announcement not until early November according to an email they just sent out.

By end of October last year 7 bands had been announced, with another 3 in mid November so let's hope it's a large announcement to get back up to speed

Could be trying to pull a Hellfest and just announce like 20 bands at once, hopefully most of them will be as good. :lol:

I doubt it, I imagine instead of doing 3 bands every fortnight they'll just announce 4 or something. That or they carry on with 3 and the bigger name bands are announced for longer/closer to the fest whereas they normally dry up around March.
