Devin Townsend
Meshuggah

Lamb of God
Skindred

Megadeth
Testament

Is what I'm expecting.


Skindred wont be Special Guests, Bloodstock always mention when bands are in the announcement. Third down is looking likely though

Very strategic- mixing up the genres on the different days- can't stand any of today's announcement frankly....

That's because it's not the 20th anniversary :lol:


They've said in numerous presses that they're celebrating 20 years of Bloodstock in 2020.

Imagine if someone chucked current Arch Enemy and Architects in a blender. It's truly generic -core that only gets any attention because the vocalist is female.

Devin is OK. I'm not all that familiar with his stuff but managed to enjoy 'Empath' a bit after several listens. I did see his set at Sonisphere 2014 and he was really good, so I'm sure his BOA headline show will be good too.

Gloryhammer are a great addition to the line-up - more of that please! As for Jinjer, I don't understand why there's been so much hype around them.

I guess it makes quite a few happy but I dont see Devin as a headliner esp as they are touting the 20th anniversary, SG at best for me, maybe I`d think different but cant get into his solo stuff

Gloryhammer do nothing for me either, I guess always bit of Scarecrow/Alestorm esuqe fun needed on some counts

Jinjer is a predictable booking, face it the bookers love Metal Core and we are stuck with it

The poster so far looks like Download lite and wouldnt touch with a barge pole...however it`s early doors and perhaps if i`m really good that Saxon, Mercyful Fate announcement will be just round the corner

So far, there's only one band for me on this year's lineup: Gloryhammer. Of the rest, Devin and Dark Tranquillity can be OK on their day. Jinjer are dreadful, but were inevitable, given the (inexplicable to me) hype that's been following them around of late.

There are still plenty of bands to be announced yet, but I confess I'd been hoping for a bit more to celebrate 20 years of Bloodstock. It's all a bit underwhelming so far.

People do need to settle down a little. We still have to be announced:

2 headliners
3 special guests
3 second stage headliners
2 of the third place spots (assuming Skindred are one)

So the bulk of the big hitters still to be announced. So far its only really Devin and Gloryhammer for me, so dont get me wrong, I'm hoping for improvements, but there's still plenty of time for that

Not worth a ticket yet, only one band I have pencilled in out of the nine so far.

Well that's blown our Volbeat predictions out of the window! :lol:

Quite surprised to see Devin get a headline slot; was expecting him as a special guest, but he's clearly more than capable of headlining and will smash it! Only seen him the once at Damnation 2011 and he was excellent then so very much looking forward to his set. :D

Jinjer seems to have a lot of hype around them so make for a good contemporary booking. Will have to check them out.

Not a fan of Gloryhammer personally but seemed to go down well last time.

I'm now guessing Behemoth will headline the Saturday night and potentially Priest for the Sunday...

The new Devin record is still my album of the year and is unlikely to get shifted from that spot, so I'm obviously very happy with that.

Jinjer are one of the few core bands out there I like, and I really like them.

Gloryhammer are fantastic fun.

Superb announcement for me (plus I got 3/3 on the bingo). Still going to be holding off on getting tickets for a little while, want to see what Brutal Assault has on offer before we commit.

Great start then if the names we have so far aren't even the big ones. Guess Jinjer will take the spot of the current hyped band like Power Trip/Alien Weaponry previously.

Saw Devin at BOA in what?13? Sounded okay , but headliner ?
Suppose BOA is faced with the same dilemma as Download but on a smaller scale, when to promote bands to headline in order to survive down the line.
Will have a listen to revise him
