Scorps were utterly brilliant at Barca Rockfest this year. But then they always are!
Any one else see them at Newcastle Academy a few years ago wow just wow.

With Sabaton and Scoprpions headlining- looking to make a return for first time since '13 :o

I think you must have been at a different festival to me. Crüe stole the show and made Kiss look quite dull following them.

At least a couple of years ago, they were both charging the same amount for festival appearances. They're about the same size, perhaps with Scorps being a bit bigger. The surprise for me are that Priest are a natural Bloodstock band, worth breaking the bank for. Scorps probably don't have quite the same draw for the Bloodstock demographic, so I wasn't expecting them to splash the cash to book them. I'm obviously pleased that they have, though.

They were both pretty terrible, I'd give it to Crue in that they seemed to put a bit more effort into it (not that it paid off though)

Hopefully it'll be another classic hard rock band plus two power metal acts. If for no other reason than to watch the Facebook page go into meltdown. BUT I THOUGHT BLOODSTOCK WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FOCKIN' BROOTAL!!!

I thought the last announcement was a Halloween "treat"?

Expect some sort of Halloween related guff such as Evil Scarecrow.

If they do a Halloween themed announcement, I reckon we may get King Diamond
