Bloodstock day tickets on sale 1st July
Day splits revealed, Deicide pull outBloodstock organisers have now revealed the day splits, ahead of day tickets going on sale.
Thursday night kicks off on the Sophie stage. Symphonic extreme metallers Saturnian open proceedings with Bloodshot Dawn and Marionette warming the crowd up for headliners Viking Skull, before metal funnyman Steve Hughes takes to the stage. Of course, it wouldn’t be Bloodstock without the infamous metal Karaoke, and once you’ve sung your tonsils raw the 4 DJS Of The Apocalypse take over til the early hours of Friday morning.
The gates to the main arena open on the Friday as the festival proper swings into action with over one hundred bands spread across four stages with all manner of mighty metal majesty on offer. Dozens of exclusive appearances from some of metals heaviest hitters, hilarious comedic offerings from top alternative comedians and white knuckle rides are all on offer across the weekend.
If that’s not enough, the metal market offers stalls from across the world bringing their wares to the UK for one weekend, and there is an acoustic stage still to be announced with performances from bands on the line up courtesy of Jagermeister.
In other news, Deicide have been forced to cancel their scheduled appearance, and after heeding the call of the fans, Evile will be bumped up to the main stage, with a new act to be revealed for the Sophie stage shortly.
