In fairness this forum represents a tiny proportion of Bloodstock attendees so I dont think using the wishlist forum as a barometer for how big a draw a band would be is a good idea for them anyway
Your right but their FB and Twitter and Vicky are continually asking who do you want to see play Bloodstock
Is this purely for fan engagement? Post count?
Certainly it`s worrying/hilarious the amount of people requesting bands who played this year(!)
Certainly it`s worrying the amount of people who ask for Metallica, Maiden, Ozzy and bands of that size
Certainly it`s worrying analyzing said posters who tag their mates who have no real interest in going anyway
This forum has a lot of loyal supporters of the festival who have been going for many years, it would make common sense for the promoters to get a better view of everything from the toilets, sound quality, camping, band requests here-You would think so anyway
