The new home of traditional metal rock music, with exclusive performances, and three stages. Over ten thousand metalheads throng to the hallowed grounds of Catton Hall in Derbyshire for a wild weekend of metal celebrations.
Bloodstock Open Air festival will take place from Thursday 6th until Sunday 9th August at Catton Hall, Walton-on-Trent, in South Derbyshire.

Once again the charity will have a stall in the market area, selling Teenage Cancer Trust merchandise and offering a ‘T-Shirt Amnesty’ (clear some drawer space and bring your unwanted band T-shirts to donate or swap).
