Vicky confirmed announcement for 11 tomorrow

Due to the lower key build up than usual, I’m guessing a load of Sophie bands

Given the lack of big names of the main stage, any announcement now isn't even worth a build-up. But you're probably right - a bunch of pub bands nobody's heard of for the 2nd stage most likely.
God, Bloodstock really know how to take momentum and throw it down the drain, I used to see news of announcement and be excited or at the very least intrigued, and in the past few years, after the first 2 or 3 announcements it's just not worth caring any more

Acid Reign - not keen on the music, but they were very fun headlining the Sophie stage in 2016

Svalbarduk - never heard of them, hardcore punk crew? No thanks

Idle Hands - who?

Soen - "Swedish progressive rock collection"....sound like a right yawn fest

Viscare - the announcement handily doesn't even say what they're like!

Dog Tired - from Metal 2 The Masses, so no doubt cack.

Lol, more tripe.

The only one I'd heard of is Acid Reign, and that's only via the caustic reviews of their latest album :lol:

Not regretting my Rhapsody / Helloween / VoA / HRH Vikings tickets yet :lol:

Acid Reign were a shit-tonne of fun in the Sophie a few years back, see how that translates to an early afternoon slot on the main. Don't know the others, yet.

Idle Hands released my favourite album of 2019, this is a fantastic addition to the line up.

They're like trad metal but also inspired by the Cure.

Anyone who sleeps on them is missing out.

Love the most recent Soen album, so very happy with that. Nothing else does anything for me

Still looks like just the Devin day for me

So obviously I recommend the whole album "Mana", but my favourite tracks from the album are "Nightfall", "Give Me To The Night", and "Double Negative", if you just want to sample a few tracks.

And then from their EP I thought "Time Crushes All" was incredible too.

I seem to be way out of touch as the only one of those bands I know is Acid Reign.

Looks like I wasn't far wrong, then.
