Dimmu's management said: "Due to restrictions and uncertainties regarding international travel and logistics, we have to postpone Dimmu Borgir's performance at Bloodstock until next year. The band is absolutely gutted about this, having to cancel Bloodstock again, but we have already confirmed with Vicky and the Bloodstock team that the band will be back in the UK for the 2022 edition. Stay safe!".
