I wasn't there and have no opinion on parkway drive. I believe the organisers can book whomever they like but the article clearly says they had the same crowd as evil scarecrow. So that doesn't sound like a success. Just having loads of pyros doesn't make them a successful headliner.
I see the bad moon arising.

I saw PD at Brutal Assault at the weekend, got bored after 2 songs and went to see some thing else.

Gutalax, a Czech grindcore band who played at 10am in the morning and do songs about shit, had a far bigger crowd that Parkway Drive.

Well from where i was standing PD had a decent crowd then Evil Scarcrow. I know Facebook folkes gave them a good review so the haters must be on this forum.

It all so said gale force winds. Ummm i don't think so. Think it was just a plan to fill the canceled Dimmu slot and move COF to Sunday cuz Bloodstock f'''k up on not finding anyone to fill that slot.

Probably just Parkway Drive fans on Facebook giving their favourite band support. Most people on the FB page have never attended Bloodstock. 147,000+ as well as those that use Twitter instead. Yep. They all attend every year. In fact that is probably close to how many have ever attended without counting the people that go every year. Don't forget it was only a few thousand for the first few years.

Cradle of Filth had problems with their flight being delayed/cancelled. The same problem Anthrax had.

Not saying they was the most perfect band who had ever played at Bloodstock. But they was certainly the best headline act on the main stage. Tbh I don't really care what people say about them cuz I enjoyed every bit of there set on Saturday. Probably a few years ago when I did not even think about PD I would be saying the same thing about them but I gave them a chance when I saw them at the motor point arena in Nottingham and I am glad I did.

Sabaton were the best (mainstage headliner) Scorpions the worst, so Parkway get themselves second place.

Loving the continuing Parkway Aggro

As I said on the facebook page - I'm looking forwards to the 2020 headliners, if only so that we can hear about someone other than tHe FuTuRe oF mEtAl !
