Devin - Unless there's a decent Sophie headliner on the Friday it looks like we'll be heading back for an early night - just never 'got' his solo stuff

Jinjer - not familiar with them but am aware there's a lot of hype around them at the moment so will give them a listen

Gloryhammer - Eurgh. On one hand, it's nice to see the festival haven't forgotten about power metal bands but there's many better ones they could have booked (hopefully they still will and we're not stuck with these bellends as the token PM band).

I'm happy with it, only seen Devin once and I didn't really know his stuff then and since I've got really into him so it'll be great to see a headline show. Gloryhammer are a bit of fun too, Jinjer is the only bad bit of the announcement for me.

Right load of old wank. Devin heading? No fucking thanks, does absolutely nothing for me, and I've never understood why anyone likes his stuff.

Jinjer are bloody atrocious.

Love Gloryhammer, but I'll see them do a much better headline slot in a few weeks.

Brutal Assault is still the place for me!

Love Devin to bits, but his recent albums have been a little too overblown for me. Always love seeing him though. The other two bands I don't really love or hate, might watch, might not.
Still need Fate to be announced to make me wanna go.

Also, this confirms 1 of the 2 bands that we heard the rumour of at this year's.

Let's see if the other one happens (Behemoth + Orchestra).

Guaranteed at least a day ticket for me now, not missing this. Love all Devin's stuff but the chance to hear some SYL stuff for the first time in a decade (or whatever it is) is too much to miss

Good announcement - I like all three bands! Devin headlining is great, although I'm surprised they've announced him so far before his UK tour in December. Gloryhammer the same, and as much as I like them I'd rather they'd booked a different power metal band - it seems like a safe choice, they could have done far better. Jinjer I've only listened to a bit, and like what I've heard so I'll look forward to checking out more.

Can't really complain all together, although it increasingly looks like Bloodstock have missed out on the big rare band touring Europe (Fate) yet again....
BANDS I LIKE FOR BLOODSTOCK!!!

I believe the tour in December is close to selling out. Coupled with the fact that it sounds like the shows will be completely different, it shouldnt affect sales too much I reckon

Most of his UK dates have sold out, so it doesn't really hurt to announce this early.

Jinjer and Gloryhammer also confirmed.


It's a bit underwhelming, isn't it ? nothing to really froth about, nothing to really jump and spend money about ?


Devin!!! *froths at mouth while jumping about* :love: :rock:

I will be looking into my ticket soon, line up already looking much better for me than the last two years already :D

Does nothing for me. Waiting on the other headliners now to decide if I get a tickets or not.

For me, this has to be the weakest back to back announcements in quite some time.

Oh dear.

I do know some people who will be happy with Dev though.
