The first acts have been announced for the 10th anniversary Bloodstock Open Air festival.

Manowar's ex-guitarist/founding member Ross The Boss is first to be announced. Having spent 8 years with the band, he left in 1988, and in recent years made a guest appearance with the band, and has not forgotten his old band's tunes, which attendees will no doubt be treated to at next year's bash.

The other act confirmed for 2010 is German Speed metallers Rage, their Bassist/vocalist Peavey said, "Bloodstock Bangers! We're proud to be part of the next issue's billing! See you all there! Cheers, Rage."

Expect them to be joined by a full line-up of established and unsigned metal bands.

Bloodstock will take place from Friday 13th until Sunday 15th August 2010 at Catton Hall, Walton-on-Trent, in South Derbyshire. The aim is to offer a traditional metal event comparable to those regularly seen in Europe (but on a smaller scale of 6,000-10,000 capacity), and capturing the spirit of the original Monsters Of Rock shows which used to take place at Castle Donington during the 1980's and 1990's.

As well as the international heavy metal bands across three stages, Bloodstock offers a large selection of merchandise stalls, metal karaoke, a campsite and a wide selection of food and bars.

Early bird tickets, including camping are on sale priced at £89.95 for adults and £39.95 for children, and £30 for a campervan ticket, and £10 for a car parking pass. Day tickets are expected to be on sale at a later date. To buy tickets, click here.
