Dammit.

So far, the lineup has about 4 bands for me, maybe 5 if I really push.

Bloodstock are really going to have to pull it out of the bag. Better get on the Wishlist forum, peeps!

So if you want a refund, seetickets require you to send the tickets back to them (fair enough) but also want you to include a copy of the email they sent you as well.
I don't have a printer but fortunately a friend of mine was able to print it off and pop it through the letterbox on his way home.

Sending the ticket back sounds unnecessary. I'd have thought that the barcode could be invalidated by SeeTickets at the click of a button.

The barcodes aren't scanned on entry though so invalidating it won't do anything.

I hadn't realized that. Since most venues scan barcodes now I just assumed that Bloodstock had been doing the same.

That's irrelevant though as it's unlikely SeeTickets would know that Bloodstock don't scan barcodes when many venues actually do.

Besides, it's in the SeeTickets refund policy that physical tickets have to be returned to them in order to process refunds. I expect it's more to do with making it impossible for scammers to get a refund and then try and sell an unusable ticket to someone else.

Personally I would send it via recorded delivery. Seems abit wrong them forcing people to go to post offices at the moment.

Line-up page is getting updated atm, will soon see if the bands are just transposed as they were or if anyone's moving around.

Recorded doesn't mean anything right now as Royal Mail isn't asking anyone to sign for post at the moment. And the compensation cover for Recorded only goes up to £20. I bit the bullet and sent it via Special Delivery as the compensation cover goes up to £500 and the total refund amount for me is gonna be nearly £300.

2020 lineup was trash. 2021 lineup is trash because its the same lineup minus Behemoth. With the extra day just being a few bands on Sophie, I'm not expecting anything good. Thursday is just all the throwaway stages open. With there being only a few main bands still to announce. I'm out again.

What? The extra day is a full day with main stage bands.

But yeah 95% of the shit line up from this year moved over, no thanks.

No the extra day is Sophie, Hobgoblin and Jager, Ronnie stage is still only 3 days.

No it's not. The festival clarified this in response to a question on Facebook. The Weds & Thurs next year are just the Sophie, New Blood & Jager stages. No main stage bands.

Ah OK, sorry.

Well that's pretty shit, kinda defeats the point of putting on an extra day if it's just low profile bands.
