A lot of these are 'wouldn't mind back' as opposed to 'must have back!', hence why it is quite lengthy. I've marked the ones I'd like back the most with an *.

From 2010:
Hospital of Death
Opeth
Sonata Artica
Ensiferum
Rage
*Powerwolf
Enforcer
*Splintered Soul (also 2012)
Fear Factory
*Devin Townsend (also 2011)
Amorphis
*Edguy
Evile
Leaves' Eyes
Sylosis
*Twisted Sister (possibly the best headliner I've seen since I started attending BOA)
Gojira (also 2013)
*Korpiklaani
Stone Circle

2011:
Revoker
*Coroner (One of the best bands I've seen at BOA, period.)
Poisonblack (Whilst I was a little disappointed with them, I'd love to give them another chance)
*Wolf (Yes, they play semi-regularly, but '11 was the last time and they always entertain me).
Lawnmower Deth
*Brezno (Flipping brilliant folk metal band)
Cryostorm
Shreddertron
Immortal
Rhapsody of Fire/Luca Turilli's Rhapsody
*Therion
*Wintersun (were ace last time out. Hopefully they'll resolve their issues with Nuclea Blast and get Time II out soon as well)
Finntroll
Angel Witch
Hammerfall
*Hell (also 2012) (Always entertain)
*Criminal
Amaranthe

2012:
*Viking Skull (Really enjoyed this - can we have them on the main bill this time?)
Dio Disciples
Iced Earth
Moonsorrow
Grand Magus
*Freedom Call (Good fun!)
*Alcest (Amazing band - maybe have them as the 'until mdinght' band on the 2nd stage one night?)
Krepuskul
Machine Head
Testament
*Chthonic (Another really good live act)
I Am I
*Orange Goblin (Get these dudes on the main stage!)
Bull-Riff Stampede (also 2013)
Father
Alice Cooper
Paradise Lost
Anvil
Kobra and the Lotus
Crims of Passion
Blynd
*Shattered Skies (Really enjoyed these guys - really tight live band)
Sa-da-KO

2013:
Tragedy
Ravenage
*Accept (Quality)
Xentrix
Skiltron
Bloodbound
Avantasia
*Sabaton
Mael Mordha
Skreamer
Slayer
*Anthrax
Fozzy
Gama Bomb
*Breed77
*Gormathon
*Grifter
Amulet

2014 has just happened, so I'll not do a list for them.

Twisted Sister, Ensifirum, Grand Magus, Kreator, Enforcer, Watain...

Although I'd happily trade Watain for a Taake booking.

MOONSORROW <3 My favourite band. Loads of people loved them in 2012, they should come back asap.

Also Amorphis, I keep going on about this all over, but we need to get them back for their special Tales from the Thousand Lakes show. Screw Wacken, bring it to Bloodstock. :D

Not really. Repeat bookings are a weak addition to the festival and we've had far too many in recent years. I don't mind the odd band or two, but more than that is not good for the festival, regardless of how much I personally like the band. Dimmu Borgir and Evil Scarecrow being two prime examples this year - I like both bands, but neither should have been booked.

I'd have Devin back. I can't see Biohazard bring back any time soon after the stage invasion. Sadly.

Good.

Biohazard are less appealing than an argos catalogue filled with animal shit.

Don't like recent repeat bookings, but having a few from the Sophie that went down very well and promoting them to the mainstage would be an idea, i.e.:

Belphegor
Powerwolf
Amaranthe
Enforcer
