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 :P

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.

to clarify i appreciate any price rise on tickets is going to earn them a nice bit extra but if you lose 10% or more of your audience it doesn't really matter if you raised the price a little higher.

Listened to the new Amorphis album today, it'd be great if they get announced for next year. They haven't played since 2013 and have a new album to support.

It'd be very nice for those of us who didn't realise they were playing Wembley with Nightwish and Arch Enemy until it had already sold out :ugh:

It's already my album of the year, not a single band still performing that i enjoy more than Amorphis these days, although 2013 doesn't seem very long ago.

And yeah that Nightwish show was harsh, I was waiting for a proper headliner set from them this year instead I had the option to travel 300 miles to London to see them do 45 minutes or nothing...very disappointing.

Well the flipside to that coin is that after this year maybe BOA have erred at the ticket sales and are going to compensate with bigger traditional acts; I'd say Venom (legacy wise at least, maybe not as they are now) fit that perfectly.

The thing is with Manson is that I'd doubt he'd draw many of his own fans to BOA and I can't see many people who "like but would only see at a festival" being drawn to BOA. Plus, speaking to a Manson fan friend of mine (I know, I associate with Manson fans :P ) he may be playing smaller venues but the price of a ticket has risen above inflation; so his demands probably haven't changed, he's just charging more from fewer people to compensate :lol:

I'm sure there are more out there too. So if you start mixing the odd repeat band in with that lot you could keep going with the festival - in the same vain as it has been recently - for years.


Just want to throw Ministry into this. I'd love to see them.


Yes!!! Me too, they're at Wacken and think they'd be great at Bloodstock

I did expect Nightwish this year to be honest. I would be surprised if they don't make it next year.

We tend to get some Wacken bands here, so it's definitely possible. Fingers crossed!

Ministry & Judas Priest as two of the headliners? Oh go on then. :D

Are Ministry actually headliner sized? I've never seen them tour or anything, but I'm not sure I hear enough about them to think they could headline. I'd say Special Guest is more likely, but I dunno I don't really pay attention to them much.
BANDS I LIKE FOR BLOODSTOCK!!!

Last time they played Manchester Academy 2. Mid afternoon slot at most.

Yeah thats what I was thinking, that would be amazing! But like others have said I don't think Ministry are big enough to headline

I wouldn't of said so no, quite a hard one to judge because I'm not sure popular they are these days, would off thought about 3rd or 4th down?

Hmm a bit low down I would of thought, Academy's are still quite big aren't they?
