Good grief I hope not. I'd live with Megadeth but the other two would guarantee me an early night for sure.

I am the opposite - Devin Townsend guarantees my attendance but not bothered by Megadeth (seen them so many times) and no fan of LoG.

Well that would put me right off, and the way things are going with some genres now being over looked in favour if others even the under card are getting weak.

Devin would be perfect for me, would be happy with virutally any other headliners if that were he case.

So here’s a question....

If (when) Amon Amarth play again, will they headline?

New album just about to come out since they headlined in 2017 and as far as I’m aware they are still in the spotlight. They do the whole festival circuit religiously pretty much every year. This year it’s the June run (download/graspop/rockamring etc) and next year I would suspect it will be the August run (wacken/summer breeze/ Alcatraz etc) so I’d be astonished if they don’t play bloodstock in 2020.

So I would assume they would headline again or would they play in a special guest slot?
My betting is they will be the first headliner announced at this years fest.

The post on the Rock Society FB Group came with a 'Don't read anything into this..' comment with the pictures. I think her husband did PR for them and has stayed friends. Wouldn't mind if they played TBH, far from the worst of the options.
She wanted nothing...and I delivered

I guess you just have shitty musical tastes ;-) For me, it's the best Bloodstock lineup in years.

Friday and Sunday are very decent for me with a lot to see. I have to echo the other comments that Saturday is shit apart from Anthrax.

TesseracT's last record sold more copies in the UK than anyone else on the Sunday outside of Sabaton.

That comment can be read very diffferently than what was meant. :lol:
