If BOA booked MM as well (who would be quite a large leap in terms of acts who've preceded him) then that'd be two big (and probably) expensive gambles in one year. I can't see BOA taking those gambles both in one year.
Hene my logic, we already have Venom, so we won't get Manson
Ah, I'm following your logic now. Thing I see with that though is that Bloodstock doesn't NEED Venom as much as want them so unless they fit their traditional payment structure which is surely crucial after this years event which can't have done very well based off of the crowd I saw, the space in the campsites and the relatively insignificant ticket price rise.
I dunno Manson has been doing academy tours of late he's not in his prime and his relevance is diminished. Since he's still gigging either promoters are willing to take a loss on his shows or his fee has been revised after his rather dramatic meltdown.
