Bloodstock organisers have given fans a late Valentine's Day treat in the form of three new bands including the mighty Arch Enemy who will be appearing as special guests to Megadeth on the Sunday night of the festival. Also confirmed are deathcore titans Chelsea Grin and prog-metal band ONI.
Arch Enemy guitarist Michael Amott tells us "We're very much looking forward to being a part of this year's edition of BLOODSTOCK, which actually takes place very close to where my father was born. We'll be bringing our 'pure fucking metal' attack home... Hail to England!"
Chelsea Grin frontman Alex Koehler tells us “We are looking forward to heading back overseas this summer to be part of Bloodstock 2017. When we were offered the show and we saw the lineup we were extremely excited. We’ve seen tons of videos from BLOODSTOCK in the past and cannot wait to be there.”
ONI frontman Jake Oni says “In the past year, we’ve had the pleasure of playing the UK a few times, but being a part Bloodstock 2017 is a huge honour. We are not only excited to show this festival what we’ve got, but also to see some of the masters that are playing!!! You don't want to miss this!”
More bands are still to be confirmed, including the Saturday night headliner.
Bloodstock will take place at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 10th-13th August 2017. For ticket details and more information on Bloodstock, please visit: bloodstock.uk.com.
