Emperor would be amazing for me personally, especially if it is going to be an Anthems set. Where was it said that there is going to be a really heavy pyro-laden Sophie headliner?

The closer we get to the announcement, the more I am thinking it is DTP with Orchestra.

This is promising. Definitely means it won't be any of those horrific 5FDP, Korn type suggestions and unlikely to be another warbling operatic symph band. So I'm hopeful...

This has me thinking...if the organisers, presumably Vicky, have told Tet it's a band he likes, it's almost certainly a melodic band. The only melodic bands I can think of that are both big enough to headline and affordable, and that aren't another Nightwishy type band, are Priest, Sabaton and Manowar. I still think both the former and latter are out of Bloodstock's budget...but I don't think Sabaton are enough of a 'wow' announcement to justify the hype.

'My feet hurt ... yes that is a clue as to who the final headliner is.
PS ... no it isn't'

Which I can't make head nor tail of :lol:

Surely that's Priest nailed on as the final headliner

I think Simon Hall was just taking the mick out of people on Facebook who hang on to everything as being a clue to the final headliner :lol: After Wacken's announcement today, I feel quite confident that the final headliner may actually be Priest. Think we'll definitely see appearances from Dimmu Borgir and COB too.

To be honest, I would be surprised/disappointed if it isn't them after that.

Vicky said on insta that 'Dave from the band is coming over today'
And her husband is good friends with Rob Flynn so unless it's Megadeth again i'm calling Machine Head
