Do they even still use that tagline? It hasn't been 'by the fans, for the fans' for several years now anyway.

Better get your coat, hat and gloves ready!


Would be rather bizarre to have an outdoor camping fest in October, definitely can't see it being delayed, either goes ahead in the normal time or gets cancelled.

Boomtown which was supposedly 12th - 16th Aug has cancelled, they're coming back for 11th - 15th August next year.

If it was going back a couple of months they'd never have created the 2021 lineup page. The decision's already been made, it's a question of when they announce it and regardless of the by the fans for the fans strapline, it all comes down to insurance.


Yep quite right! I'm going back on myself!

As for the strapline, I really don't think the Bloodstock organiser are being mean or anything by not sharing info or being straight up with us in a good and timely manner. If they even hint at there being a cancellation, it could either invalidate their insurance or potentially leave them open to potentially insurance fraud investigations or insurers refusing to insure them in future festivals.

So really, they are doing the right thing.

It's gonna be called off with them trying to keep the same lineup for next year and people will be offered a choice of refund or roll-over.

Someone cocked up and put the webpage up early with all the info on it - got sent a message with the link earlier but I think it's been taken down again

The way they are talking, I think that next year will be an expanded festival. Maybe they will make Thursday a full day and add another day on the end. They have probably kept all the headlines and will add extra ones and add more stages. Prices will go up too.

Announcement 3pm on Monday, think it's fairly obvious now what that is going to be.

Wish they'd just do it now so I could alcohol my misery away.

So you changed a post with a screenshot saying the festival had been cancelled to this.

Odd response, but it basically confirms its cancelled and you're waiting until Monday to announce it.

You do realise that by deleting that post you've just confirmed that it was real, well done. :lol:

We know it's cancelled, we've known since you put that 2021 lineup page up then removed it the other day.

Just the fact you can't buy tickets speaks volumes. :)
