Nope. I was told the rumour that involved two of those bands from the main man in the respective bands. Both of whom I vaguely know personally.

Just goes to show how negotiations and bookings don't always work out how the bands and/or festival wish.

I am quite looking forward to the fest as it is drawing closer. I do think if they switch the Saturday RJD bands with a couple on the other days it would be more enjoyable and well balanced. I am going to rarely leave the RJD stage on Saturday. Which means I'm regrettably going to miss Burgerkill, apparently they're coming?

Now we have all the bands (short of someone dropping out last minute) I can say I really do like the line up. It has it's flaws no doubt, but when it gets things right it hits the nail right on the head. Good mix of rarities in there which adds to the appeal as well as some bands I've wanted to see for awhile all in one place so helps me tick a few boxes.

I just hope now that the bands I want to avoid clash with the bands I would like to see. I know i'm going to have some inevitable clashes but doesn't stop me hoping theres fewer of them :lol:

Also Burgerkill is coming....

I guess bar the Saturday main and second stage and pretty much all the New Blood stage I do like it. That said, its looks incredibly likely that all the bands I like on Sunday and Friday will play in a big clump in the middle of the day all at the same time, and I have little either side of that to watch at all. So it could easily switch to a massive "no" come stagetimes.
BANDS I LIKE FOR BLOODSTOCK!!!

If I've counted right:

Bands I'll be actively avoiding, unless they've had a sudden and drastic change in direction: 13
Bands I don't care about, but might check in case they've improved: 11
Bands I actively want to see, unless they've had a sudden and drastic change in direction: 9
Bands I need to check out as I don't know them: 91

Bands on my must see list: 16

The rest vary between: will happily check them out/hell no I'm off to the bar!

Frankly the 16 on my must see list justify the fee for them alone, anyone else who is good is a bonus.

A big reduction on the whole wolf howling at the moon alchemy gothic shirt "battle metal" neck beard crap this year even though Within Temptation somehow managed to headline; it's a yes.

It was worth it just to watch Death alone.

The "somehow" is fairly easily explained. They're the biggest headlining act Bloodstock have ever had.

No! Overall I already like the 2016 line up better than this year's line up after only 2 band announcements! :lol:
