If we do get a thrash Sophie headline I'd prefer Tankard. :)

Tankard would be a superb announcement as a Sophie headliner

This....but on Sunday night as I'm not sure my aged body would cope with that alcoholic intake that would ensue without the next day being a complete write off

Power Trip wouldn't be suited to headline as they don't have enough quality material to fill an hour yet, I think they would be in one of the bottom three slots on main myself.

Either way I'm fully behind the idea of both Power Trip and a thrash sophie headliner! Except Friday night, I'm going to be a wreak after JP and won't be able to enjoy the Sophie headliner

Delain have said they're spending next year writing an album and wouldn't be touring as much, so they're probably less likely for Bloodstock now. :(

Is it the usual 11am or because we rarely have announcements on a monday at a different time like 6pm?

You would have thought that they would have done it on Halloween...

I'm in optimistic mood, have a fancy that Iced Earth will be announced.

Download are announcing tomorrow, probably Metallica, which is sort of a bigger deal than Bloodstock.

Fingers crossed! What time is the announcement supposed to be?

Announcement should be at 11. If not, it'll be around 6 I think. Iced Earth PLEASE

Watain, Orden Ogan, Combichrist and Memoriam UK

Watain are Sunday Sophie headliners, the rest are mainstage bands

Combichrist should be good though thought the Sophie stage would of been better. Meant to see Memoriam the other year but they clashed with Anthrax so I'll try and give them a go this time round
