New Entrance

Why can't we have our new entrance here just like Bearded Theory Festival? Look at the Google Map link at the bottom.

Looking at their map for this year it would appear they only have one entrance this year and it goes through what is currently BOA's quiet camp.

Interestingly BT's car parking is on the other side of the road from Bloodstock's.

This is why i can not see any issue with Bloodstock doing the same. You don't even have to cut though quiet camping you can go down the right hand side of it.

Change the entrance location and swap the current quiet camp with a noisy one?

The website says Ragnarock is now the quiet campsite

I think Ragnarok could work well as the new quiet camp. It seemed much bigger than Hel (maybe because it was so empty!) and is further away from the noise of Midgaard.

I think there's another event on a Catton Hall around the Bloodstock weekend which is why they can't use the parking field BT use, plus it might no be big enough, BOA is bigger than BT is.

No i think Bloodstock is the same size has BT festival. I really can not see any problem trying it out for this year to see how it gets on if not put the entrance back to where it was.

You've got to remember that Bearded Theory is a totally different type of festival. The majority of people turn up in campervans, minibuses and caravans. Very few people camp in tents compared to Bloodstock.

It's more like a 1980s New Age Traveller type of festival.
