Well, in Will's absence, I'll stump up for a pint for the winner. Pick 10 bands you think will play on either the RJD stage or Sophie stage at Bloodstock in 2016 (excluding Venom and Behemoth who have already been announced). Some points will be awarded similar to previous years (I can't be arsed to look up what those points are now, but IIRC you get more points for a headliner on either stage). I'll go for a mixture of optimism and realism again, so my ten would be:

- Twisted Sister
- Judas Priest
- Manowar
- Five Finger Death Punch
- Bullet For My Valentine
- Epica
- Tristania
- Borknagar
- Arch Enemy
- Gloryhammer

Rules (based on last year's)

THE RULES:

> Pick 10 bands you think will play on either the Ronnie James Dio stage or the S.O.P.H.I.E tent at BOA 2016.

> Only bands that play the Sophie and Dio stages will count.

> You're not allowed to pick bands already announced. This means if you decide to have a go a couple of months before BOA 2016, you probably won't win.

> You cannot edit your post, even if it's to score yourself. You could have edited your list for all I know, and it's a ballache to check back, so I'll just disqualify you.

> The deadline for entries is July 11th 2016, which is a month before the festival starts. I will then spend half a night totting up the scores. Any band announcements or cancellations after this time won't affect the scores.

THE POINTS:

> 15 points for a headliner (that is the band playing last on Friday, Saturday or Sunday on the Dio or Sophie stage). This doesn't include 'Special Guests' or 'Co-headliners'. They come under...

> 10 points for every other band on the Dio/Sophie stages.

> There's usually one entry who gets more bands than everyone else. If this happens again this time, that entry will earn an extra 10 points.

THE PRIZES:

Since beer is roughly a tenner a pint, if there's one single outright winner, the prize is a pint of premium warm ale or cider, a plastic of wine or a tumbler of spirit from the Serpent's Lair. Noddle buys into the Real Ale marketing hype so will fund no lager habit.

The winner is only eligible if they're attending in 2016.

If there's more than one winner, someone will attempt to contact all top scorers, asking 1) if they're attending 2016. If they are, they're entitled to answer b) a tie-breaker question (not searchable via google!). I will make contact immediately after posting the results and allow a week for everyone to reply with answers. If there is no response within that time, it will be assumed they're not interested. This helps allow enough time to arrange prize collection. After a week, the closest to the correct answer wins.

Pint is only claimable at BOA 2016

Now that's the long, boring rules bollocks that you may or may not have read (thankfully, most of you do), go and pepper this thread with bands on lists!

Good luck...

Mostly just a list of bands I don't want to play. I figure I never get many on this, so hopefully me predicting them will get rid of all the bad bands I don't want to see.

Do we have to specify who we guess will be a headliner or are we given bonus if they just happen to be on the list?
