However, looking at the length of that last set they did (looks similar to Bloodstock's 1h), I wouldn't be sure they will do imaginations in full, perhaps they changed their mind and will stick with a standard festival set. A 'best of' set would make sense for a festival with no other power metal on the bill.

I wouldn't mind as I usually don't like full album sets from anyone (though imaginations is so good, I would be okay with it).

They new stuff is much better live. Check out the new live album, it sounds way better. :)

Just had a look at the app and noticed that Background Music are playing the 9pm Sophie slot each day? Has anyone ever checked this band out?

They're great! play lots of covers. Not much stage presence though.

Yep. They will be playing Pantera's greatest hits....

I can't wait. Pantera don't get played often enough. Think there might be any Rage Against the Machine?

nah, there won't be any at all - in fact I think you should request that the 4 Dicks Of The Apocalypse play extract Pantera and RATM to make up for the absence of it in previous years.

I'll be quite happy with that BG set list. I've never been convinced they'd play all of Imaginations at Bloodstock, being that it's not an album which has a history in the UK, but either way will be good for me.

Xentrix and Kreator is the oddest clash for me, Bloodstock seem to like clashing Xentrix with another thrash band, it was Voivod last time. But there are very few bands I'd miss Kreator for and Xentrix certainly aren't one of them!

Really weird clash this especially with "background music" being on, could they just not have had them starting at 20.30?

I'd be somewhat disappointed by a lack of "Imaginations from the other side" being played in full. Don't get me wrong, I'll enjoy the set pretty much no matter what they play. But having been led to believe up to this point that they'd be doing it, to see them do something else would be a bit of let down, particularly given that for my tastes it's their best album.

Might be worth tweeting Blind Guardian or something to see about the Imaginations set? Tbh I would have thought Bloodstock would have announced it if they were as they did with Fear Factory and Behemoth. Seems unlikely with just an hour slot too.

But more to the point, what is the special thing that apparently Megadeth are doing?!

Someone on FB suggested it was them playing Mechanix, but they've played that every time I've seen them!

The whole of Rust In Peace would be ace.

No. As a result, I saw none of those bands.

Yeah I saw that Wacken interview, I'm intrigued and have no idea what it could be! I'm really hoping they play Mechanix, I've never seen them play it live and its probably my favourite Megadeth song!

Is this special for Bloodstock? Perhaps Dave's voice will sound decent for it? Or Alissa Cookie Monster will join them on stage?

Mechanix is great when I have seen them play it live but I would prefer them to play the entire of the Peace Sells album.
