Ingested/Kamelot, Weight of the Tide/Orden Ogan, Combichrist/A Forest of Stars, Alestorm/Voyager and Pallbearer/Gemma Fox look like they'll be my big clashes. Little overlap between Conjurer/SepticFlesh and Mantar/Sellsword, but that's fine, should be able to see almost all of each.

As it stands, based on last year, Alestorm will clash with both Voyager AND Aonia. Wonderful >_>

Really? That's a damn site better than usual. Maybe they finally got tired of people complaining about how late they leave it.

People complaining about how late they leave it will now be replaced by people complaining about how early they've announced them.

Yeah I was quite shocked! I guess it's because the metal to the masses finishes this weekend. So on Tuesday we can probably expect the last of the new blood and jager bands and official stage times :D

I wonder if they'll get the site map out soon too. It will be interesting to see the new campsite layout and arena layout as i'm guessing they'll need to shift a few things around to fit in both the strongmen and fighting guys!

Don't think that is the case. He said the 2 M2TM bands he just played where getting announced on Tuesday along with the days they are on not that they are releasing set times for the festival.

Does mean we should be line-up complete on Tuesday though

No sign of the stage times yet then.

There seems to be one fewer band on each day on the New Blood stage this year - only 12 announced per day, where previously it was 13.

You've been around long enough to know Bloodstock wait until the last minute to post those, and insist that the bands themselves keep their stage times a secret. How else will they maximise the sales of their over-priced lanyards that fall apart after a mild dampening? :P

Barbarian Hermit have a slot but still haven't appeared on the line-up, so I assume there are a handful they either haven't added or still haven't confirmed days for yet.

I think the official site is wrong at the moment. There were 3 other bands announced (Underdark, Equinox and Barbarian Hermit) but they don't appear on the line-up page. Maybe the days that those bands are playing haven't been decided yet so they haven't updated it. Either that or it's an oversight on the webmaster's part!

:lol: yes I'm aware that's usually the case but someone posted earlier on this thread that they were bringing them out yesterday.
