I don't know what is worse, shitting in a carrier bag or throwing it at a band :o

Was this per-prepared or did they just do it in the middle of the gig?
I'm going to take a few steps away from anyone with a carrier bag at a gig in future if it's the latter :lol:

I was there the Cradle year. There was a steady anti Cradle throughout the fest with people wearing Dani is a cunt t shirts. I'm not blaming Dani but I feel it was unwise of him to egg the crowd into throwing more stuff at him after a bottle was first thrown.

On a side note I was disappointed by their performance. First time I saw them since the nineties and back in the day they used to have a good theatrical stage set up. So I was expecting a big stage set up from their headlining performance. Saying that though I'd like to see them back. I'm hoping for them and Myrkur in the next announcement.
I see the bad moon arising.

What's the chance of KSE seeing that they are supporting Maiden finishing 10th Aug??

If Killswitch Engage played I'm sure they'd headline.We discussed them as a potential headliner a couple of months ago and we all seemed to agree they're not the right sort of band for Bloodstock. Killswitch also have a five day gap in June between Copenhagen and Hannover in which they could fit in Download festival, but with six UK dates later in the summer I doubt that.

I wouldn't hold your breath. KSE would probably headline if they played BOA, can't see them playing under Gojira either, as they're bigger (though admittedly Gojira have momentum behind them that KSE don't).

I would suggest unlikely, a little too on the non-BOA type of band. Even for the stuff they have been booking recently.

I really hope the festival gets it's fair share of power metal this year too! I'm hoping for Primal Fear or some cheese like Freedom Call :p

They have leaked before? Interesting... Can only imagine it coming from the bands side as it wouldn't be good if someone on the BS team leaked the information... unless it was by accident haha.

I'm fairly sure BOA started keeping their doors firmly closed the year after the set times debacle on Facebook.
