Kind of disappointed Vuur isn't a top pick, but get they're not big over here - still fit the melodic clean vocal sort of metal people always ask for on here. Would be great if they could play same day as Devin so Anneke could sing with him. (I know it's just a game, and I'm not getting overly invested in it, it's just the most interesting thread for a long time)

Must say that it's still incomparably better than this year.

Well I've pretty much got 6 each day there, so for my tastes I'm going to say 666 is nicely balanced :D

For my tastes this would be a great weekend. I still think there's far too little extreme/death metal on it for it to be viable in the real world though. The Friday is crying out for a Morbid Angel/Deicide band around third spot to balance things out. But I'd go for sure. Which is more than I can say for the real Bloodstock this year :lol:

Looking pretty good. I would suggest maybe bumping Turisas up above Myrkur on the Friday. In fact, Myrkur and Chthonic both strike me as better suited to the Sophie stage. Perhaps one could be swapped for an extreme band like Soze suggested?

I would also bump Sacred Reich and possibly Finntroll above Primordial on the Saturday seems as they were only third up when they played in 2014.

there's not a huge amount I actively listen to on here (I'm still shocked you all prefer Overkill to Accept), but the stuff that I don't is still pretty decent and there's almost no one I'd want to actively avoid, whereas this year I can't stand the majority of the lineup.

I'd definitely go to it!

But it does need a few more extreme acts to sell to the size of crowd you would need to fund it.

I'd say Edguy should swap places with Heidevolk on Sunday, Primordial should move down a few places and Turisas up a couple. Overall though its a great lineup for my tastes.

I think moving Myrkur to the Sophie is a great idea, as a possible special guest slot? They'd be much better in there. I'd put Heidivolk and probably Alcest in there too, which would leave room for a bit of raucous death metal for those who would be missing that sort of thing.
