People said the exact same thing last year when she said it was close to selling out, and then it went and sold out.

It seems to me that she's not usually wrong on these things and I struggle to see the benefit of her teasing "it's about to be sold out" when Bloodstock is quite popular anyway. I don't know if it's sold out previous years but even if it hasn't, they obviously get enough revenue to keep the whole thing churning at the very least.

It's simple, if you want to come, then buy your ticket and get into it! Her saying it's about to be sold out is fair warning IMO.

By the way, are there any more announcements due? Any hot rumours?

Yes.

They did exactly the same thing last year, and it was truthful.

AS for next announcement - I'm guessing next week or week after based on the info in the live broadcast last night.

According to yesterday's Facebook live, band announcements are coming over the next couple of weeks. The Thursday night line up is also done and dusted apparently!

They also mentioned they have some big news regarding the festival (not band related) which they may be able to announce at this years festival. Sounds interesting!

Wonder what that could be. What would be big enough to warrant an announcement like that. New location?

New location? New stage? Changing their focus from Metal to Skiffle? Being bought up by Facebook? Let the wild speculation commence.

New location could be a possibility with the increasing capacity. If that was the case maybe they would have room for another stage too!

Without wishing to sound negative, I hope they don't increase the capacity by much. What I love about bloodstock is the atmosphere and the fact that the vast majority of people are there for the music and not just to cause chaos and have a massive piss up. I worry that if it increases too much and becomes even more mainstream, that atmosphere would be lost and we'd get some of the obnoxious Download crowd deciding to come to bloodstock instead
