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....

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.

Most underwhelming announcement imaginable.

Hopefully that's the non Metal headliner out of the way. But I have a nasty feeling they'll book that awful Volbeat band as well...

Devin, predictable and will go over well but not for me. Early night Friday unless Bloodstock finally give people a choice of another band when the headline is on.
Never listened to Jinjer despite the hype around them.
Very happy about Gloryhammer, always enjoyable.

Devin - oh fuck yes
Gloryhammer - oh hoots yes
Jinjer - not my thing

Overall a bloody excellent announcement for me.

Doesn't really seem like a 20th anniversary year lineup so far.

Devin Townsend
Meshuggah

Lamb of God
Skindred

Megadeth
Testament

Is what I'm expecting.
