According to Sky Sports football transfer rumours, Infernal Majesty will be named as special guests and play all of the None Shall Defy album, :D

Based on?

Though I'd be happy with Devildriver if it comes to fruition

Well, Vicky did tell me she'd booked another band I'd like for next year. It's clearly Manowar :-)

I hope we hear about the 3rd headliner soon as the first 2 announced do nothing for me.

On social media Bloodstock is going through all the old posters, so I wonder if that's leading up to the next announcement (which would be in about two weeks). Or perhaps I'm just clutching at straws.

Given that I am buying my VIP ticket on 4 Sept when they are released, another announcement soon would be very welcome

How long are early bird tickets on sale for? I'm tempted to buy one but I can't 100% commit to going next year as I have a PhD to finish. The plan is to have viva done by mid-August so I can use Bloodstock as the greatest party ever, but things could go wrong so the deposit scheme is likely to be by best option.

Aye, I normally get an early bird ticket around December. Most of the big hitters have been announced with a bit of the undercard, no rush.

I've got a feeling Powerwolf are due an announcement.....

Headlining Friday's Sophie stage perhaps...... :P

Seriously disappointing so far, hopefully the poor announcements means they'll have a decent headliner this year.
