Good idea. I think like was said in the next announcement thread all the RJD bands will be low key and not really worthy of the mainstage, can't see them holding them back this late unless they are bands playing Download. The onlty slightly higher key bands I can see are Caverlera's return to Roots, Suicidal Tendancies and Orange Goblin. Was going to say Sikth but they have the same position as Sabaton so doubt there's room for them.

I'd actually be happy with that, would rather watch Beholder! The one time they seem like the more appealing choice! Still would rather drink warm beer and chat rubbish at the campsite though :P

Hmmm... looking at Download's line-up, there's some decent bands we could get. I honestly don't think we'll get as many as the four remaining RJD bands. However, there are certainly plenty of possibilities. Besides those already listed, there's also the likes of Kvelertak, Lost Society, Red Fang and Code Orange.

If we get anyone from download I'm hoping for suicidal tendencies

Honestly, Download's lineup this year is one of the worst I've ever seen for a major UK festival, and I really can't see many bands playing that I'd want to see at Bloodstock. Sabaton are too big, and Devilskin are the only other Download band I can see that I'd want at Bloodstock.

I think people would probably be pretty happy with that, which probably says more about King 810 than Beholder.

You must be looking at a different line up to me! SOAD, Prophets of Rage, FFDP, Mastodon,Sabaton, Red Fang, Baroness, Suicidal Tendencies, Exodus and that is just Day 1. Plenty more on day 2 and 3.

Clearly not all the bands are suitable for BS (size or style) but saying that it is the worst line up you have seen is way OTT!

Its terrible. There are a handful of decent bands on each day, and aside from System I've seen them all, mostly multiple times. Its so predictable as a line up.
BANDS I LIKE FOR BLOODSTOCK!!!

Well, as the saying goes, there's no accounting for taste. Of those Sabaton are the only one I'd want to watch and I'd actively go out of my way to avoid SOAD, Prophets of Rage, Mastodon and Suicidal Tendencies.

I would love to see Alestorm play but I would have thought they would have been announced before now.

I guess it depends whether there's still some beef between them at BOA? It's silly that they haven't played for so long - you'd have thought they'd be perfect for 4th or 5th band down on the Dio stage. They'd likely draw a pretty big crowd too.

There was beef between them? Well, I know there is difference in band members but surely with Gloryhammer having played whatever they were upset over has been put to bed?
