I would think quite a few that want to see either JP or Nightwish would be the type just to attend one day and go home.


Especially Nightwish, now they've announced their own tour I already know some who were going for the day who aren't at all now.

Overall Power Trip would be a decent booking. I still think it's a pretty rubbish lineup overall but can't afford to go and do metal days instead so will probably end up at this as can get a lift both ways. The remaining Saturday and Sunday bands all need to be good on the main stage though as 5 bands in 2 days is pretty awful, and even then it's not like Venom inc and alestorm are my favourite bands of all time...

I'm generally OK with the lineup. I think last year was better, but I have bands to see every day! So I'm happy out.

I would like the next announcement to maybe have a good hardcore band in there. Previous years have had the likes of Pro Pain and Biohazard. I'd wager Sick of it all would be a great announcement.

I'm surprised that there aren't more of the classic underground U.K. bands playing. Surely they would be relatively cheap and would get a few more heads in than pub-level bands from around the country? Bands who are established but still small: the likes of Solstice, Desecration, Sabbat, Iron Monkey, Slomatics. Even going into Ireland there are Mourning Beloveth and Malthusian.

Its mostly decent for me this year.

Looking at my Yes/No/Maybe list for the last few years I tend to average 4/5 bands on the Dio stage I want to see and this year is the same with the exception of Sunday which is a bit shit for me but so far iv got some stuff on the Sophie stage to make up for it

Folk on the Download forum have mentioned that Power Trip have announced they'll be playing Bloodstock on the current Trivium tour.

My friend went and he said that there was no mention of it on the date he went to. Said he's in the same boat as me where wants to see Priest, but rest of lineup is lacklustre and not sure whether to just wait for their own date.

Yeah, I have seen a few people saying that Power Trip self-confirmed at a recent show.

Power Trip, Code Orange, Skiltron and one other tomorrow maybe?

Have a horrible feeling it will be Code Orange. One of the worst bands I've ever seen - really don't get it

Same. I'm hoping we get some bands that played the Epica tour, but I'm fully expecting Trivium's whole support packages. All average bands at best.
BANDS I LIKE FOR BLOODSTOCK!!!

I also think Code Orange are crap. They were awful supporting Gojira last year.

But the chances are it will be an ultimately uninteresting announcement. :P Still four main stage spots left my by reckoning.

If the only name bands we end up getting are Trivium's tour supports that will be massively underwhelming

All bands have names.
