If only there was a tried and tested method of communicating something to a wide audience without requiring (but not excluding) the use of smartphones.

We could call it something like the world wide web, and people could connect to it using any number of different clients in order to consume the information!

Sounds daft, don't think it would catch on.

Ross the Boss now back to being a few spots up.

Oh, apparently if you add something to your favourites, then go to your faovurites and select the band, you can see the time on the next page. I suspect that time is meant to dsisplay on the front page too, but isn't.

Yeah that's worked for me but you can only see one band at a time doing that, oh dear...

That crazy method gives Ross the Boss a 55 minute set length, nice.

I always try and avoid posting negative things on this forum but this cock up sums it all up for me.
Every European festival announces their stage times weeks, often months in advance.
Yet Download and bloodstock insist on doing it a few days before and on a bloody app that doesn’t work. I don’t want a Bloodstock app, I just want the stage times to be posted on the website like every other festival.

So it would appear that having to 'favourite' a band is no longer necessary. You can just click on each one individually to see the times.

Not ideal and a bit laborious but still, managed to work out my own schedule.

Only clash for me is Wildhearts and Helheim. I would have watched Helheim out of curiosity but I'm not missing the Wildhearts for them.

Everything else works out fine apart from the fact we'll probably get there too late to catch Death Angel.

Times have worked out better for me as it means I'm only down to 1 full on clash, shame it's 2 bands of the same genre which is annoying.

Disappointing start to next year only Dark Tranquility for me. The rest Meh

No great enthusiasm for it from the crowd either

For an announcement that is a whole year in advance that's meant to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Bloodstock, that was a massively underwhelming start.

Vio-lence is a rarity and Sacred Reich have been heavily requested for several years so I get why those two are worth announcing this far in advance but the rest are just a massive pile of meh.

And to big it up as the 20th anniversary and not announce 1 band that is remotely connected to the roots of the festival feels like a slap in the face for long-time attendees.

What is concerning is that the biggest cheer from the crowd was in response to Skindred.
Now, this isn't a knock on Skindred per se but ffs, we should be demanding better than a band that tours the UK at least once a year. If they're the band that get the biggest reaction then it hardly encourages the organisers to try very hard
