Glad to hear it after the initial overcrowding issues in VIP last year

Go read the reaction to that video on the Bloodstock VIP facebook page, it is quite spectacular.

You would think they are asking folk to walk from Tamworth the way folk are moaning.

I have to lug all my stuff on to a train to Glasgow and to my hotel on the Wednesday night then down to the bus station at 630am on the Thursday morning, I would love to be able to just go to the car park and drag my stuff from there!

I can understand the set times not being released until all the bands are announced but they must have a site map ready by now, unless they're planning a massive overhaul of the arena but i doubt this
BOA '10, '11, '12, '13, '14, '15, `16, `18, '19
Beermageddon '12, '13, '14, '15, `16, `17, `18, '19
SRS '12
EMFA '20

Only 1 gig between now and BOA for me and doing more band research, wish they would give a rough indication of the running order, don't want my usual luck to occur and I really get into a new band only to find they clash with a must see band :rolleyes:

The Enslaved/Ne Oblivascaris still hurts me on a spiritual level.

It is looking to be a clash free year for me this year. Mostly due to the fact that there are far less bands suited to my tastes.

On a more positive note, I am quite excited as it looms closer. Note to self: bring suncream and a fucking hat.

No gigs for me before BOA sadly. However it is only adding to the anticipation.

I haven't been to a show since Fleshgod Apocalypse in February.

I just checked my ticket stubs and my last gig was Annihilator in Glasgow in 2 Oct 2015. I am badly needing some beer and gig time.

I don't normally get the set times until I arrive at Bloodstock and get that around the neck thing which I have to throw on my glasses every time I want to read it.


I'm getting super excited. Realizing how close it's getting to hanging out, drinking tons, being on holiday, and partying to metal music for a whole fucking 4 days and nights!!

Set times are always the Tuesday of the festival. Be way better if it were a couple of weeks before.

Can't see there being much difference with the site to be honest. Bearded Theory was on the other week and this is their site map. Obviously they have more campervans and caravans due to the nature of the festival, with different entrances.

Maybe Ironwood is bigger this year? But I don't know if it's to scale or just a representation.

Took me ages to buy tickets as always wanted to do Bloodstock but always clashed with holidays or wasn't allowed time off.
I finally buy tickets for me and the missus and the boss is "suggesting" that I make myself available on the Sunday to fly to Germany for training! Um no!
If he had asked me weeks ago I would have booked a different festival but too excited now! Even if I wasn't; one of the wife's favourite bands is Anthrax so can't see me getting away at any time on Sunday!
