Or perhaps extending the festival by a day, Wednesday to Monday?

Didn't they say the exact same thing around this time last year and it turned out to be a capacity increase or the new campsite or something? It's probably something that should be in place for this year's, something like a new entrance that's been needed for a few years.
BANDS I LIKE FOR BLOODSTOCK!!!

Same! :lol: I kinda like the idea as it would give us a full day to get set up rather than rushing on the Thursday before the bands, but I would be even more dead than usual come Monday!

They seemed to think that *everyone* would be happy, so maybe an additional entrance could be it?

Although a new and/or bigger entrance would be good, it seems a bit of a random thing to announce at the festival this year :lol: I think in the Facebook live they mentioned adding extra lanes to get things moving quicker but we'll see!

"I know you've been all looking forward to Judas Priest for years now but first, let us tell you the exciting news for next year! You'll be able to get stuck for hours in yet another unbearable queue in a different entrance!"

I imagine it'll be something necessary but mundane.

My vague hope for Vader or Insomnium is running completely empty haha.

I'm liking Nailed to Obscurity! Sort of Melodic Death-Doom.

I take it that's all the mainstage slots filled then.

Yeah and from the email they sent round, think it might be all the Sophie slots too, except the Thursday
