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.

Skindred wont be Special Guests, Bloodstock always mention when bands are in the announcement. Third down is looking likely though

Very strategic- mixing up the genres on the different days- can't stand any of today's announcement frankly....

They've said in numerous presses that they're celebrating 20 years of Bloodstock in 2020.

Those two sentences don't mean the same thing.

Imagine if someone chucked current Arch Enemy and Architects in a blender. It's truly generic -core that only gets any attention because the vocalist is female.

Devin is OK. I'm not all that familiar with his stuff but managed to enjoy 'Empath' a bit after several listens. I did see his set at Sonisphere 2014 and he was really good, so I'm sure his BOA headline show will be good too.

Gloryhammer are a great addition to the line-up - more of that please! As for Jinjer, I don't understand why there's been so much hype around them.
