Going by recent years of classic band Sunday, divisive band Saturday, cult perhaps band Friday(at least some times)

Friday-King Diamond or Helloween or Amon Amarth

Saturday-Lamb of God or Volbeat, or though maybe something like FFDP?, I dont think the backlash towards controversial bookings has been learned from because the promoter seems to like it thus it stays

Sunday- Could it be Whitesnake? Or will they have Amon Amarth with a legendary band Saxon or Accept as SG/double headliner ?

Expect to see the likes of : Exodus, Turisas, Destruction, Jinjer etc and possibly something no-one would have predicted like Kerbdog or Toranaga

Devin Townsend
Baby Metal - special guests

Lamb of God
Body Count

Megadeth - depending on Daves health

I also think Skindred, Carcass, Skid Row, Therapy? Will be on the lineup.

Babymetal were quite entertaining as a novelty act the two times I've seen them previously (Sonisphere 2014 & Reading 2015) but they're nothing more than a novelty act to me and would be a colossal waste of a slot at Bloodstock that could and should go to a proper Metal band.

If there's some kind of anniversary thing, I reckon Saxon will be involved somewhere.

Others - Devin Townsend, Behemoth, Whitesnake,

I'd love to see them again but are they still going? Seems like they haven't toured the UK in ages and god knows when they last released an album, and even that was a bit meh?

Some quality suggestions in this thread! Would love to see behemoth now i've gotten into them, and i've always got time for amon amarth and saxon!

Definitely still going. They are playing London in Feb with Korpiklaani and Trollfest. According to their page they have been writing material for a new album. I suspect that will come out early next year, in time for that European tour.

I can see Volbeat and FFDP being subs at DL next year. BOA seems to book DL bands who have either plateaued (Trivium, Rob Zombie) or are on the up but not yet as big as either of those two are (Parkway, Ghost).

Think we'll end up with Killswitch for a DL band next year (if they don't do Slam Dunk like BFMV).

Toranga would be welcome but Kerbdog are a bit too indy for BOA surely?

Would want Mercyful Fate, but that won't happen and I'll end up going elsewhere to see them.

I'm wondering if Danzig will make an appearance, purely because he confirmed that they're heading to Europe in 2020.

I would bet money on Volbeat headlining, possibly with a Mercyful Fate Special Guest because the band have a few connections to one another.
