Capacity will be raised by 25% on this year according to BOA, so looking at around 18,500 capacity for next year, so hopefully Korn will not be booked.

I think you're asking the wrong people.

The Black Dahlia Murder are supporting CC in March in the UK- I can't see them coming back in August. I hope the Sophie headliners are good because I'm not impressed with the mainstage headliners- nostalgia for Priest aside. Gojira were good in 2008 or 9 when they played but the next time they played I didn't find them so good. Dimmu Borgir might turn up after Wacken...after all Priest and Nightwish are at Wacken

Electric Wizard will be there next year I hear, assume theyll headline Sophie. Makes no sense to have em mainstage in daytime

Yeah right. I think you need a better source.

Have any of your predictions ever been right? You were saying that you KNOW it's Machine Head last week...

I would love Electric Wizard to be there next year, they are well overdue. They have a new album coming out soon so hopefully they're on the cards. Headlining the Sophie stage on Saturday or Sunday would be great as I don't want to miss any of Priest! Saw on Instagram that Vicky is watching Myles Kennedy rehearse for an Alterbridge show, potential 2019 headliner?

Ghost did that, and headlined. Kreator had a couple of UK shows in February and came to Bloodstock.

Are you mad? Do you realize how big Alter Bridge are? They sold out a couple of nights at the O2 Arena last year. They're far too big for Bloodstock and will probably headline Download in a couple of years. Did it occur to you that Vicky might just be a fan of Alter Bridge?

They only did one date at the O2.

Alter Bridge are at the top of BOA's reach, but they're still a realistic headliner. Especially as they've managed to get Judas Priest, who likely charge more than AB.
