Hell would be awesome, but think Andy would struggle to play for both Priest & Hell at the same time :lol:

Well I suppose he's got 5 minutes to cross the arena and change from being leather-clad to getting all the Hell make-up on.

I'd be very happy with Hell. Perhaps they can play that new album they were teasing five+ years ago. :lol:

Hell sound like the best option so far but I'm guessing they've died a death.

Don't sleep on Fellowship if you like power metal, absolutely incredible band and I'm really excited to see them get bigger.

Really good announcement for me. Scarecrow are fine - I'd be bored of them any other year, but they'll be fun enough for closing the festival I suppose.

The New Blood seems to be where its at though. Hanowar there is going to be great - the Jager Stage hasn't done them justice in the past. Fellowship, The Injester, Sorceress of Sin, Deitus and Ghost of Atlantis all sound worth a watch on first listen as well. Just hope there aren't too many clashes.

Also happy with Scarecrow, despite their blurb:
So, we haven't played as a band for a year. Not even a practice. We have closed and abandoned our rehearsal room. Our van is gathering moss on a driveway. We have 2 new members who we have never played with. One of them was our main stagehand. We have not replaced that position. Basically, Evil Scarecrow, are, in reality, unconscious in stasis, floating through the void of space until we clear the disease-ridden Van Allen radiation belt. Along comes the good ship Bloodstock, who nudges us awake to see if we will come and play with them. “No", we mumble. "No band yet". “More sleep”. They return with a cup of tea and a bacon sandwich. “It’s headlining the Sophie Stage” they whisper.

Shit.

So, we have sprung back into life! We are dusting off our props and may even have a band practice or two. So, if you want to see the most shambolic, unpracticed, unprepared Evil Scarecrow show ever, then join us! We can’t promise our usual super-polished -ahem- performance. But we promise to bring the biggest, messiest, stupidest party yet.


Maybe they'll get to use their new set backing this time, since wind will be less of a factor. :lol:
