I must admit I'm glad this year is the year I've decided to miss.

It's early days. But the Saturday is looking like the Sunday was last year, with not much of interest on the mainstage for my tastes.

Saturday is looking as grim as Saturday was last year. Let's hope things improve in the coming months.

Think it will be Testament, Devildriver and Metal Church. Coroner and Sacred Reich would be my preferred choices.

That's what some people had said but announcements are usually at 11 and nothing so far, so not sure now

Were we definitely meant to be getting one today?

If so, do you think they may do the evening (6pmish) instead, so as to not have an announcement so close to HRH? (HRH are meant to be announcing their first bands for the Stoner v Doom weekender at 12ish).

Doubt it would be today, Download have an announcement tomorrow so I'd imagine Bloodstock would hold off until next week so the hype isn't drowned out after 1 day.

Would that affect it? Bloodstocks dedicated followers probably wouldn't give a toss about the download announcement so surely it wouldn't be taking any hype away.

An organiser said today time unknown on the Rock Soc page. |Could be any time in that case.

Answered your own question there. Bloodstock's dedicated followers wouldn't care about DL but they only take up a fraction of ticket sales. If they blow what they are hyping as a big deal the day before Download throw out their usual 30 odd bands then your undecided casual fan isn't going to be interested for long and they need those fans as they take up quite a whack of ticket sales.
