Ffs I hope not. First Devin and now this shit?


Are they really big enough to headline though? I remember them being only a support for bullet for my valentine a few years back at academy venues and it wasn't even sold out. I think they could end up as special guests but surely not headliners

Let's hope it's another Volbeat scenario whereby we are given the unexpected. I'm not a fan of Killswitch and had the displeasure of seeing them support Maiden last year. Even their show was stereotypical yawnfest Metalcore. Also if they were to headline, what a waste! Especially given the touted '20th anniversary'. I'm going to sit here and hold out the hope that it'll be Fate, which it won't be.

^ Seeing as I can see Devin at the Roundhouse in December, as much as I like him I would definitely need Fate to sell me a ticket to this. I'm hopeful for once though that BOA will get them booked.

I can see it being Killswitch as special guests. Considering they supported Parkway on their recent tour, it would look like a downgrade to have them headlining this year, but I could see them as special guests to someone big on the Saturday.

Not really a follower of these things, didn't realize this was a common occurrence for him. Be a bit weird to see them announced and bumped up following negative publicity though.

I'd be surprised if they were anything but a headliner, regular academy band with a large media profile and crossover appeal. I think they are the same size of other previous headliners (not getting into "oh they were the non-BOA bands") like Mastodon, LoG, Trivium and Down.

I think any two of BFMV, Killswitch engage, FFDP or any of that Kerrang/Download bullshit would guarantee my non-attendance

"Twentieth anniversary" I`m expecting "Something special" since its them who are hyping the anniversary so much

It`s early early days yet and I`m expecting better announcements more to my tastes, I mean thus far Butcher Babies are headlining Sunday :lol:

Final two headliners to be announced before Halloween according to Facebook

At least I'll have a good chance of deciding on early bird tickets once all three have been announced

I'd imagine it's Priest and Mercyful Fate.

Priest, Mercyful Fate and Devin Townsend is perfect for me.

But I'm fully expecting some absolute gash like Volbeat and Killswitch Engage.

So how does that fit in with tours etc as that can dictate who can/can't be announced.

Does the Ozzy postponement until probably after BOA prevent Priest?
FFDP have their tour in January (though seems to have sold well already)
Fate have already announced for other fests
KSE will finish their tour by then
Volbeat tour has finished

off the top of my head

Devin/Priest/Fate would be an immense headliner line-up for me but I can't see them putting on 3 genuinely good metal bands as headliners all in one year so I assume there may be some weight to the Killswitch Engage theory. I'd absolutely love to see Mercyful Fate at BS but I feel like it's gonna be another brilliant opportunity like Helloween/Demons & Wizards that they skip on to incorporate more metalcore into the festival.

Of the guesses people are making Priest are the only one I'd enjoy. MF are fine until King Diamond opens his mouth, can't stand his voice.

I'm still going with Behemoth and Priest as headliners given that most of Slipknot's dates with Behemoth seemed to have sold out already. The postponement of the Ozzy/Priest tour may also mean that Priest can bring the announcement forward seems as it won't affect ticket sales for now. Both would be pretty safe bookings in terms of appealing to the typical Bloodstock-er too. Killswitch could be a possibility though as their last UK date is 20th October...

I'd be really shocked if Behemoth or Mercyful Fate were headliners, I'd say both would work better as special guests. I'd guess Killswitch (although I think that would be a letdown, they aren't as big or special as other bands they could get) for Saturday, Priest or Megadave for Sunday.

I still think Amon Amarth will be in there somewhere.
Obviously their dates are late November but I guess they could be announced a few weeks before
