As for politics at gigs and festivals, keep it at home unless it's that kind of festival or gig. If I went to Glastonbury or a Billy Bragg gig I expect it. I don't expect politics at a Heavy Metal festival. Songs about nuclear war maybe, but not politics.
That includes dickhead comedians and announcers between bands. We know Donald Trump is a bit of a twat, but we want a few days where the real world doesn't exist. Where we can forget the day jobs and drink a few beers. Not much to ask is it?
Completely agree. That announcer between bands has been obsessed with Trump for the last couple of years. For me, Bloodstock is just an escape for 4 days so would be nice to be able to forget the issues of the world for those days. We hear about them enough every other day of the year.
Back to the music, I really hope Architects don't headline. I really tried with their latest album but could only get half way through. To me it's just monotonous shouty rubbish, but that's the sort of thing that people apparently love these days, with bands like Code Orange and Ithaca being classed as 'the future of metal'. Would take Parkway Drive over any of them every day of the week.
Doubt we'll get another announcement today either, nothing has been mentioned and the last few have been 3 weeks apart so I reckon the next one will be next week.
