Yeah it's disappointing that Skindred wasn't announced as special guests, but then were confirmed as special guests on one of the recent live streams. Very odd way to do it? :?

Saxon I can see as special guests because of their history with the festival and it would just make sense on a day with Priest, Diamond Head and Gloryhammer in terms of day tickets.

Priest and Saxon sorts my singing out for Sunday
Would definitely get my attendance

Although Saxon or KD/MF would make sense

It will probably be Zack Sabbath as no-one has asked for them :lol:

I like Saxon but am I the only one hoping they aren't playing? Would rather someone else myself

Very much not. Band themselves have never clicked with me, and even if I did like them, they play everywhere every year, they'd be exactly the same level as Skindred. I'd much rather someone a bit more out there. Hoping they'll do Steelhouse instead.


Very much agree with this. Their a fine singalong for a good lineup, but this year needs a bit more than that imo.

Counterpoint: Saxon are my favourite metal band and should play every year.

It's bound to be municipal waste in the announcement.

I would not be upset by that in the slightest.

They've announced bands who ended up third from top as special guests so are Skindred getting the same slot again?

If they're on before Devin then I can see why they've slipped it in on the quiet, that's bloody awful :(

Aye, bit on an unsubtle hint before Wave of Death :lol: Hopefully Toxic Holocaust too as they were great :D

Aye, if there's nothing decent in the tent for the rest of the evening then I can see us heading back pretty early that night, especially if Phil the goose-stepper ends up being 3rd from top.

Almost certain that Phil Anselmo, Paradise Lost and Gloryhammer are all third from top looking the posters etc

Yep, that pretty much puts the nail in the coffin for any hope of a Mercyful Fate appearance. FFS - how are the Bloodstock booking team so unbelievably dense to what their fans actually want?
