More acts have been revealed for Bloodstock 2018, which will take place at Catton Hall, Walton on Trent, Derbyshire, DE12 8LN from Thursday 9th to Sunday 12th August 2018.
Ahead of their new album (released in January), headlining the Sophie Lancaster Stage on the Sunday as a UK festival exclusive will be Watain.
Frontman Erik Danielsson says "Our last performance at BLOODSTOCK in 2012 was also the final date on the ‘Lawless Darkness’ tour. The sun was setting while we played and the crowd was getting louder and wilder the darker it became. A very charged atmosphere. Eager now to return and see what the eventful years that have passed and the force accumulated since then has done to both us and the BLOODSTOCK crowd. Furthermore, England is of course sacred ground when it comes to Metal in general, so when performing there, the stakes are always high. May all those that doubt be impaled upon them."
Also confirmed - all for the Ronnie Jame Dio main stage - are German metallers Orden Ogan on the Saturday, and both with early slots on Friday will be Atlanta's Combichrist, and British death/grind four-piece Memoriam.
They join the acts announced so far, which are headliners Judas Priest, Gojira, and Nightwish, along with will be Emperor, DevilDriver, and Nails. Many more acts will be announced in the coming weeks and months.
Early bird weekend tickets are on sale from the link below priced at £125. The full ticket price will be £145 when the early-birds have gone.
