Idle hands are a nice addition., but that's it. Sunday only is now pretty much locked down.

If you want to spend upwards of 200 quid to sit in a field drinking, I've got a nice big plot in Wales ? no neighbours, so you can blast all the music you like ? You can even park next to your tent ! I'll do 2-for-1 if you want to bring your mates. VIP (extra) gets you access to the indoor plumbing.


Nar, I'd rather spend the days watching a quality lineup of bands but Bloodstock don't seem to want to oblige.

What??

It doesn't go up and down, since 2011 it's always been 27, ie 9 bands per day!!

Are you trying to suggest that in the last few years they've been different numbers of bands on each day?! Cos they're haven't.

The only time it changed recently is last year and that's because of the weather on Saturday. There was still 27 acts billed for the main stage though.

Might just be the amount of bands he wanted to see rather than the actual number of bands playing, least that is how I read it. :)

No that can't be right, unless he literally wants to see every single band that's been booked this year, and wanted to see every single main stage band in previous years, including wanted to see even more bands that were actually there in 2018 :/

I'm happy with Viscera, Dog Tired and Bailer. Should be able to fill the days now.

Glad I sold my ticket, didn't think it would get any better :lol:

Also Bloodstock has had 9 bands on Main Stage each on Fri/Sat/Sun every year for a long time now, just checking back on some of the previous year posters shows this.

Soen is an incredible booking. Heard good things about Idle Hands, need to check them out. Checked out the three tracks Viscera have on Spotify - flipping heavy! Can imagine if they are tight they'll be cracking live. Might be a bit too 'core' sounding in their extreme sound for some on here though.

What made you buy a ticket in the first place? This is quite possibly the worst BOA line up there's ever been.... and I'm including the times it was a 1.5 day fest in 2005 and 2006.

If looking for something else to do during the same weekend, the best festival in Europe just happens to be taking place in the Czech Rep at the same time....

Hey, what was wrong with 2005? lol.

2006 admittedly had some right garbage on the Saturday, but that Friday run of Majesty - Savage Circus - Axel Rudi Pell - Primal Fear? I'd give a limb for a bit of that at Bloodstock these days.

No no - I was talking about the outdoor Bloodstock's in 2005 and 2006, not the indoor.

My point was even when it was a much lower budget outdoor festival in 05 and 06, and it was only a day and a half long (Friday evening, all day Saturday, then we went home on Sunday), the line ups of the festival way back then were still better.

I meant this is literally the worst line up for the outdoor Bloodstock I've seen, even included the low key versions of the festival that it started out as.

I'm a huge fan of Devin Townsend, so I bought my ticket after he was announced as headliner and would be playing heavier songs (also at Early Bird pricing).

I like all three headliners for Bloodstock this year and at the time most of the under card was not yet announced. As it is 20th anniversary, I honestly thought many more decent bands were gonna get booked, especially bands that have played Bloodstock before or haven't played in a long time.

I'm actually going Into the Grave in Netherlands on the same weekend which has a far superior lineup.

I guess if you like Devin ITG is a good line up, not much there for me apart from Vreid and Gloryhammer....still better than Bloodstock though!

I should be going to NEtherlands for Eindhoven Metal Meeting later on in December, it's always a blast.
