Capacity will be raised by 25% on this year according to BOA, so looking at around 18,500 capacity for next year, so hopefully Korn will not be booked.

The Black Dahlia Murder are supporting CC in March in the UK- I can't see them coming back in August. I hope the Sophie headliners are good because I'm not impressed with the mainstage headliners- nostalgia for Priest aside. Gojira were good in 2008 or 9 when they played but the next time they played I didn't find them so good. Dimmu Borgir might turn up after Wacken...after all Priest and Nightwish are at Wacken

Yeah right. I think you need a better source.

Have any of your predictions ever been right? You were saying that you KNOW it's Machine Head last week...

I would love Electric Wizard to be there next year, they are well overdue. They have a new album coming out soon so hopefully they're on the cards. Headlining the Sophie stage on Saturday or Sunday would be great as I don't want to miss any of Priest! Saw on Instagram that Vicky is watching Myles Kennedy rehearse for an Alterbridge show, potential 2019 headliner?

Ghost did that, and headlined. Kreator had a couple of UK shows in February and came to Bloodstock.

Are you mad? Do you realize how big Alter Bridge are? They sold out a couple of nights at the O2 Arena last year. They're far too big for Bloodstock and will probably headline Download in a couple of years. Did it occur to you that Vicky might just be a fan of Alter Bridge?

They only did one date at the O2.

Alter Bridge are at the top of BOA's reach, but they're still a realistic headliner. Especially as they've managed to get Judas Priest, who likely charge more than AB.
