FWIW, Slayer charge significantly less than Judas Priest.
Yes, my point it gets expensive fast for even the 'cheaper' bands, a very rough ball park figure a few years ago about 100k for Slayer so multiply accordingly for the few bands at the very top of the food chain.
Seems like they always want top dollar everywhere and all the time to avoid being labelled as a 'cheap' band thereafter by the industry.
Personally I wouldn't want JP, Manowar, Mettalica or Maiden there If the cost was massively increasing Bloodstock capacity.
The Bloodstock 'Brand' to me anyway is more about seeing the very bands the other big uk festivals wouldn't book.
edit Ross in 2010 not Manowar my bad
