1. Increase the size of the festival and turn it into a commercial circus like Download to increase revenue.
2. Break the bank for them and only book cheaper acts for the rest of the line up.
3. Keep the festival in its current format.
I very much prefer option 3, 15-20k fans and a great atmosphere every year.
Option 3 sound good to me, but money talks.
If, as has been suggested, Bloodstock starts booking bands like Bullet for my Valentine and Five Finger Death Punch then the commercial circus won't be a long way off. Hopefully Bloodstock stays true to its roots.
