Sure, I've seen them both as a support act and a headliner. My opinion is that they're a kind of bland thrash influenced band that don't deserve anywhere near the flak they seem to get. I genuinely don't get why there's so much hate sent in their direction. I wouldn't go out of my way to see them, but they deserve their place at Bloodstock.


Trivium are just crap there's not really much point trying to like them just to enjoy seeing them at BOA because there is no other option on friday night

I was one of those people. And from there, my love for Bloodstock grew. I know a lot of the people at the barrier with me were there for Avantasia too, so they were there for the weekend like me as there were enough bands on the lineup in general to win me over. ;)

Regardless of the headliners and some of the line up, I am starting to get damn stoked about this, watching the countdown draw us nearer to BOA.

Looking forward to a damn fine weekend with like minded people, good music and a few ales when the bands I don't want to see are on.

All we need is a dry and sunny weekend to make it perfect! :D

2013 was my first Bloodstock, this year will be my second and to me, this year has more strength in depth than previous years, although I will probably be spending a lot of time in the Sophie tent on Saturday and Sunday

I vote no. If I hadn't had bought tickets on the first day after last year's, I don't think I would buy them now. But I'm still looking forward to it all the same.

While I don't see anything redeeming about the headliners with the possible exception of Rob Zombie, I do wonder what else they could have done to either stay in budget or get a couple of decent big names.

I would have liked to have seen less suck overall on the headliners. Everyone else I could have dealt with. Also, I would personally have liked to have seen guys like Enthroned, Vader, Paradise Lost, Insomnium, etc. But who knows, maybe they couldn't get them booked or whatever. I'm still looking forward to Overkill, ProPain (first time for me), Sabaton, Cannibal Corpse (F U Johnny!), Korpiklaani, etc.

Compared to last years, I mean, beating the likes of Rotting Christ, Emperor et al would have been difficult.

I will wait for some announcements before I splurge on 2016 tickets though!

With the exception of Rob Zombie the headliners are awful for me this year, but I still get why they do it. Popular headliners are enough to bring in new punters, whilst the regulars and the proper metal fans go for the other bands lower down the bill.

Let's just hope they don't fuck up the opportunity to impress new punters again by fucking up the toilets.

For me the line up this year is great. There are about 17 bands in total I really want to see, and I'll no doubt discover more as I work through the line up to listen to bands I've never heard of before. Particularly looking forward to Overkill, Nuclear Assault, Korpiklaani, Ensiferum, Arnocoprs etc.

I just caught Nuclear Assault on the Hellfest stream, and man they kick ass, looking forward to this much more. Can't wait to see Dan Lilker again.

Nuclear Assault are a huge positive on the bill for me and I have very high hopes!

Yes, couple of bands I really want to see, but mainly going because of my friends and the general atmosphere.

I think the line up is a strong one overall although it undoubtedly could be stronger.

Mainly I think it goes to show that various "rumours" you hear should be taken with a strong pinch of salt.

Kreator, Insomnium, Arch Enemy, Judas Priest and Five Finger Death Punch I heard mentioned a lot for example yet none of them are booked for this year.

None of those were rumored, they were either wishlisted or in the case of AE and FFDP a "I hope we don't get them" thing.
