Judging by the lineup on the website it looks like they'll be playing under Vio-Lence, so unless Vio-Lence are special guest (which is highly unlikely, and would've been announced at the time) Skindred have actually been knocked down a slot and will be 4th from top at best next year


The order of the website looks wrong, tbh. I can't see Dark Tranquility being beneath Butcher Babies tbh.

Too early to tell yet, wouldn't read anything into any of the placements for a while.

If they do get Skindred to play further down than they warrant then that's a good business move.

Apologise for changing the subject entirely but I just noticed that Deicide have been announced for Gelfe Metal Festival next year. What do you reckon are the chances of them playing Bloodstock? If memory serves me they were booked some years back, cancelled (predictably) and haven't been back since, would be a good booking in my mind, provided they play of course.

Would love to see Deicide but can understand why Bloodstock might avoid booking them as they are flaky as fuck

Totally, I would understand also but would be a nice addition considering they were supposed to play a few years back.

Fair play to them, got a lot of respect for bands who aren’t total fucking divas about placement (Black Metal aside, as it ruins all atmosphere which is part of the package)

Still not seen Skindred, but I used to love them when I was in school.

Vicky & Adam are doing a Facebook Q&A on Thursday at 7pm. They will be telling everyone when the first headliner will be announced, so it's an announcement of an announcement.

Vicky has already posted on Instagram that first headliner will be announced on the 30th so that pretty much nails Volbeat on!

Volbeat are headlining Rock am Ring in June, surely makes them less likely for BOA now.

Devin Townsend will be announced shortly

Am basing this on all his recent twitter posts have been liked by bloodstock organisers

Eurgh, well that's one early night guaranteed then (assuming he's a headliner).

Volbeat it is then. Their last UK show is in Manchester on Tuesday October 1st, but a day or two shouldn't matter.

The Sisters of Mercy's two London shows are this weekend..

Sisters of Mercy and/or Devin Townsend would be good announcements for me, but as I've said before, I doubt a Rock band that peaked in the late 80s/early 90s and hasn't released anything new since is hardly headliner material.

Better at Whitby?

I look forward to next year but am a little worried about announcements

I mean it`s being touted as twenty years and you really hope its a holy freakin F`k announcement but feel more worried its going to be something hugely disappointing, a couple of metalcore bands who no-one wants and someone who were barely famous in the 1990`s-I know you cannot please everyone but...
