Just came across this, gives an idea of who'll be around at the time

Warlock and then Tank in the Sophie would be good

Sepultura don't half look out of place on that line up.

Unfortunately they are the only other band on that festival that we will probably get. :(

I want to see Warlock announced for next year but I fear it won't happen :(

Sadly, I can see it only being Sepultura and Watain from those line-ups and the power metal fans once again being shafted.

I bet the next announcement will be on Halloween. Delain's European tour finishes the next day so hopefully they'll be involved in any upcoming announcements.

Shadow of them former selves when I last saw them unfortunately :( would jump at the opportunity if they find their spark again though.

I'd love to see Epica, Doro/Warlock, Powerwolf, Turisas and Freedom Call back at Bloodstock. But sadly I suspect we're more likely to end up with Sepultura and Amorphis.

I really hope they learned their lesson from that and don't repeat the same mistake. Sadly, I'm not optimistic, and it wouldn't surprise me to see Nightwish shafted in the same way that WT were.

Really? When did you see them last? It's been about five years for me IIRC.

You would think so, maybe they'll chuck the token power and melodic bands on the NW day.

Last year at Hammerfest, just felt like going through the motions. I thought it was an off night but a mate saw them in Denmark around the same time and said the same thing. They also mentioned a new album but I haven't heard anything since :(
