We welcomed Lost Society, VIDEO NASTIES, Wolf Jaw, Grave Lines & VEXED to the bill!
Tickets available at www.bloodstock.uk.com ...
I cant see how this can go ahead. Even if lockdown is over, you can bet public gatherings will still be kerbed. Maybe this is more a case of waiting until they are told to cancel so the insurance kicks in? Which you couldn't blame anyone for because there's a few quid tied up here.
It will not happend this year Rock am ring and helfest and Download fest and wacken I think they'll cancel
I certainly hope so we’re gonna need it
I’ve volunteered for Sabaton Open Air and would hope still to be going. It’s the same weekend as Bloodstock. I hope both festivals still go ahead but frankly I doubt it. If things start to ease up early in May it’s possible I suppose. That said, those who’ve lost friends and relatives to this virus are unlikely to rush to attend a mass public gathering so soon afterwards.
Well, my only question now is where on earth or heaven and hell do i find a hazmat suit for my kid 🤣
great news! now bring some power metal , Primal Fear,Thunderstone,Amorphis,hammerfall,Leone/Turilli Rhapsody,battle beast or beast in black, add some kreator, sodom, ensiferum and sonata arctica to play the first four albums!
This just will not go ahead. The current emergency will last until a vaccine is found and the population is vaccinated. There is no way that an event where social distancing is not possible, where large numbers of people have to gather in one place and travel from all over the country to get to will be possible this year.
Why are you still on the page if you aren't planning on going? Let some of us be excited for something this year
I will bath in antibac every 2 hours and wear and full hazmat suit for the whole weekend there if it means this goes ahead.
"Ok guys, stand two meters apart at all times during bloodstock!!" *Queue to get in extends to Burton on Trent *main arena is now limited to 500 people *SOPHIE tent is a nice 50 people *every campsite & portaloo becomes condemned post-festival due to it being a biohazard * Showsec basically turn into SS camp guards, whips and MP40'S included
Sam Elcock are you going this year mate
Listen up chilblains.... Until Bloodstock says it’s cancelled , it’s still on.... Don’t be upsetting yourselves thinking the worst until it’s set in stone.... Put the Metal on , crack open a cold 1 & smile at Bloodstock’s past.... Chins up peeps....
U need add a cpl of hardcore bands now please
No one can predict where we will be at by June/July. This is a novel virus and the hope is that it won’t thrive in warmer weather like flu and cold viruses but no one knows so hang in there and see how it plays out. FYI I am a biomedical scientist , Virology is not my speciality but I work with those that are
There's positivity and there's blind denial....
So when is igorrr getting announced?
Positivity is what we all need and bloodstock is delivering. Lighten up. I work in a covid19 cohort ward and every day I check bloodstock news and I can tell you it lifts my spirits after a brutally horrid day of work. I'm burnt out and tired and I need to know that there is a possibility of something good coming.
Not a chance unfortunately.
In a worst case scenario, you’ll be able to use your tickets for the next year, just like Inferno Festival did, so sit tight. Plus, there is no way of knowing what’s going to happen in the next 4 weeks, let alone mid-August. It’s not like everyone’s an armchair epidemiologist, amirite? 🙂
This is going to be one hell of a party to celebrate not only 20 yrs of Bloodstock but this mess the world is currently in
Out come the corona experts...
Lost Society should be cool. Vexed have a good write up. Broken record time: Cellar Darling / Therapy? / Bull-Riff Stampede / Atarka / Kerbdog and a special reformation of Creaming Jesus am my wishlist 😀
It's all about money. If they cancel, their insurance won't pay out. It is 'going ahead' until they are forced to cancel. Its the same with all small/medium sized festivals. Big festivals like download can probably afford to take a little bit of a hit. Also, be careful buying tickets. I have a ticket for Metaldays and they released information saying that the smallprint states they don't have to offer a refund in the case of a cancellation due to a pandemic.
'Closely monitoring' You're watching the news every day and waiting to see if the lockdown is going to be finished before July, like the rest of us. There's no need to jazz it up. 😂🤣
Needs to happen now that you’ve booked Lost Society
