Different outlets will have different allocations too, so anything in the 7000's may be the the top end of one sellers block, and tickets for another may start at 8000

Yeah I don't think the numbers mean too much. Mine's around 4100, my mates is around 3900. I ordered mine about a month ago. He ordered his straight after last year.

They confirmed they won't be there this year, but will hopefully be back next year. Said they just wanted to mix things up.

EDIT:
Other things from the podcast-

- 'Bullet belts' are banned
- They are discouraging all bags from being brought into the arena; all bags will be checked
- no gazebos on Thursday or Friday. If there's space after that, then fine.
- cracking down on oversized tents
- at numerous point they drilled home that they are not BSing about the ticket sales numbers. Said that, at current rate of sales, BOA will sell out around the end of July.
- They mentioned the 2018 announcement thing again. The way they worded it, I got the impression it may not be a band but something else
- Final bands announced on Wednesday
- Stage times announced closer to the festival (usual spiel on this really)
- Security generally a bit tighter and expect more checks searches - including vehicle searches.
- pints will be 4 pound something
- They'll be selling 2018 tickets at the box office - only place to get it without the booking fee.
- VIP signing tent announcement/running order next week


-Shame about battle of the nations, along with the RAM gallery I really enjoyed it last year. Weightlifting is quite a 10 second wonder, minutes to set up for short pay off.
-If this year is so close to selling out, I wonder if the 2018 announcement ties in with it somehow. New location or set up etc.
-If they can get the VIP running order announced next week then why can't they get the regular running order out as well? If it's that close to selling out wouldn't that mean they don't need to hold off as per usual in the hope of picking up a few late ticket sales
-The security things I can understand, I can only imagine the car searches will just be sniffer dogs though. Nothing more than I was expecting.
-When they sound £4 something for a pint, it leads me to think it'll be closer to £5 than £4...

BOA could quite easily book a UK promotion like ICW. Doesn't Wacken also have wrestling on show.


Aye, Soni did it in 2014.

I would prefer wrestling to weightlifting though, maybe a work but at least there's a few minutes entertainment in it rather than 20-30 seconds for weightlifting. Although saying that I'd prefer battle of the nations stuff where people actually batter the crap out of each other :lol:

Wrestling? No thanks. Too many fat blokes walking around with inappropriate clothing on already. :ugh:

It's not the tennis. :P

I'd prefer battle of the nations personally but if it's an alternative to weightlifting I'd take wrestling :lol:

Some people on the Facebook forum have said their tickets are in the 11,000's but yeah I imagine it would vary by the ticket vendor.

Yup. That'd be pretty disappointing if it's not a mistake.

Hmmmmm, Mantar's FB page shows them playing Brutal Assault on Saturday then Bloodstock on Sunday, however they were clearly on the Saturday line-up for BOA. Looks like someone fucked up.

Scarab isn't a glitch/mistake, they've cancelled/been kicked :x
