Well it's just come up on my face book page, so I guess I'm only half to blame.

Yeah I think mine's powered by gerbils. I never took much notice of the line up page especially for Thursday, it was the top slot on my Fb feed earlier so I just took it on face value, I'm still undecided on going or not so don't really keep up.

Or more accurately you just got confused by amiguous phrasing. By "Introducing" Reign of Fury they were just doing a little "info about the bands playing the fest" type thing, not announcing them as a new addition.

Also trust me, I have slower internet than either of you :(

Yeah I guess so, I just took it as an announcement. I'm blaming the heat and beer for making me drowsy.

Shame about Nuclear Assault being on so early, one of the main draws for me and I'm never quite ready for a band at 11am :lol: Hope they still pull a decent crowd. Although I'm still dithering on whether to go at all, best make a decision soon!!

I'm fairly sure a large chunk of the Jager bands are M2tM winners, so likely yes, we'll see them all in one go next week or the week after. Wouldn't be too shocked if the mainstage band also came through M2tM or was the winner of the Hobgoblin vote to be honest.

That hasn't been the case in the past, and I don't believe it will be this year either.

I know at least 3 who've said they are on the Jager, including most of the ones who are actually decent. That's not including Snowblind, who are already announced.

FWIW, Morass Of Molasses will be playing on the Jägermeister stage this year.

A long shot but Amaranthe have just been announced for a festival in Spain same weekend as Bloodstock. Within Temptation also playing there, i wonder if they will be a late addition to Bloodstocks lineup.

Anyone else feel 12 bands per day on the Sophie is a bit much? In my eyes any more than 10/11 just causes short set times and leaves less room for manoeuvre in case of any technical difficulties (see Amon Amarth ending up with a 4 song set at download the other year).

Maybe an earlier start.
