Even after editing this post once it's still wrong. :rolleyes:

"We didn't hear it from here though."

Looks like an announcement sometime on the 30th.

Fingers crossed for Warlock and Powerwolf but sadly I'm expecting it to be something like Watain and Sepultura instead :(

And if they're gonna have another go at booking some one-hit wonder from the 90s that nobody wants then I'll guess at Powerman 5000.

As Sepultura have just announced a UK tour in March and are also playing Hammerfest in Wales in the same month I suspect that, if they end up at Bloodstock, they won't be announced until after that tour.

Delain are playing a sold-out show in London on November 1st so they might get announced, but it would be unusual to confirm a festival appearance before any other shows have been completed.

And they're doing it with Marco from Nightwish. If we get that for the Sunday I'd be really pleased.

I wonder if we will see the return of Evile? Looks like they are with a new booking agency now and in the process of writing new songs. I think their return would be very welcomed by Bloodstockers!

I don't see Marco coming onstage before Nightwish's set to do a couple of songs with Delain, but it would be cool to have Delain on the main stage on the Sunday though! Stick Epica in as subheadliners then all the Thrash/Death meatheads will be so upset!

I'd also like to see Evergrey turn up on the Sunday and get Floor Jansen to do a song or two from 'The Storm Within' with them.

I like Nightwish and Delain, but don't like Epica. I do hope they manage to put some matching bands on that day though, I loved that day in 2015 when Within Temptation played as not only did I get to see them, but also Napalm Death, one of my favourite bands, Death, Dark Angel, 1349, Savage Messiah, Fleshgod Apocalypse, half of Ethereal and Jasad - however I felt bad for my two friends though who came just for WT on the day, and didn't see anything except them and Opeth as they wanted to be front row.

Friend doesn't like Nails or Devildriver, so she's getting a bit annoyed that it might be a repeat of that year!

If 30th is the right date for an announcement, then we might be looking at some Damnation bands. Only really Dying Fetus and Disentomb I'd be desperate to have from that, as I know AxNx aren't a bloodstock kind of band. Is that date confirmed?

Remember Devildriver and Nails are already playing the Sunday :P

Have Delain and/or Epica on the main Sunday and have Dying Fetus as the Sophie Headliner (Sophie is due a headliner in the next announcement anyway) and It'll all be hunky dory (though could use a few more Thrash bands, for me anyway :eyes: )

What about Akercocke as a Sophie stage headliner??? Heard that they were very well received in 2016.

I'd say two years is too soon, but the bookers couldn't give a toss about that so they seem likely

Just realized the UK dates for W.A.S.P's tour finish on the 27th, maybe they could be in the announcement? 3rd on JP day below Emperor would be good to see
