The first band on that list that they should bring back is Powerwolf. They were fantastic and it will have been 5 years.

So far 5 bands have been announced-all 5 have played before.Do the bookers withhold 50% of a bands fee unless they return within 5 years or something?
There are thousands more bands around who have NEVER played the fest than who actually HAVE-why don't the bookers try getting some of them?There are people on here who can give give the organizers a few pointers if they are getting stuck......

To be fair they've been going for a decade and there aren't exactly a plethora of new bands taking the reins there is a point where this kinda thing is a statistical likelihood.

It doesn't have to be new bands though. There are hundreds of bands that haven't played yet.

And to be honest I don't particularly want that many new bands on the Mainstage. That's what the New Blood stage is for. I'd rather have the Mainstage for established acts that have been going for a while.

I'd rather there weren't new bands on the mainstage. Usually new bands are cack like Suicide Silence. I wouldn't even mind repeats, just repeats from a bit longer than 2 years ago please.

I don't mind new bands playing the mainstage, as long as it is only in the opening slots. I think after that and up until the late afternoon slots (i.e. third/fourth from top) should be established bands that aren't world beaters but have a really strong following in the Bloodstock demographic [*]. And after that we start getting to household names in the metal world and amongst the biggest names in their respectful genres.

[*] And by Bloodstock Demographic, I mean bands that aren't the media darling (Unless they actually fit the bill like Watain, Behemoth etc.)

Just to clarify my earlier post.I wasn't suggesting Bloodstock book "new" bands for the main stage-i was saying that there are thousands of active bands who have never played the fest yet the bookers keep rolling out the same ones who have played before,
For this announcement substitute (quickly off the top of my head) Cannibal Corpse for Asphyx,Hail Of Bullets or Gorguts and with Sepultura-swap for Annihilator,Tankard,Nuclear Assault for example(there are countless others obviously).The lineup would be a lot "fresher" and at least it would look like the bookers were at least trying.
