Next announcement will be all three headliners, Nightwish, Blind Guardian and Dream Theater. And Bloodstock 2015 will change its name to Bloodstock 2015: We're Sorry For All The Extreme Metal Last Year.

I think the 'delay' in the fest announcement means some negotiations are still needed. Scorpions and there demands? Keepers era halloween?

Could never get into Dream Theatre either.

That would be "Bloodstock 2015: One good headliner (Nightwish), one utterly tedious one that can't even spell their own name properly (Dream Theatre) and one of the most dreadful bands in the history of the world (B***d G******n)" :P :lol:

What grown man thinks Nightwish are good but Dream Theater and Blind Guardian aren't? :lol:

This one :P

Nightwish are fun and remind me of some good times in my life - and are currently blessed with probably the best all-round singer in the "warbly gofficky/symphonic metal stuff" genre. The other two are pish.

Wouldn't mind Blind Guardian (if only to give Beardy something to complain about) but not the other two. Overblown, pretentious and utterly boring after the third twiddle.

I've got plenty of other things to complain about without chucking a band that manage to somehow be utterly tedious and incredibly annoying at the same time (and have the most overrated singer this side of Andi Deris and that bloke from Sabaton who can't sing either :P ) into the mix :P :lol:

Nope. Still tediously dull.

Could Danzig headline? He doesn't get much of a shout round here but, I could see it.

Opeth are big enough to headline yes, but are enough people really bothered about seeing them? There are smaller bands that I think more people would be more interested in watching, maybe someone who haven't headlined the festival twice already.
Nightwish I would be happy to see again, its been a while since they last played and they are big enough, good fun band. I would also be happy with mastodon. I usually expect one headliner I like and I'm happy enough with that, so either one of those, or dream theater, would suit me. Judas priest should definitely headline the Sunday.

Speaking of cradle of filth, I'd quite like to see them back a headliners. Wouldn't blame them if they never play bloodstock again though after last time.
