Just in time for Halloween, Bloodstock organisers have announced four more bands to their 2018 line-up which is headlined by Gojira, Nightwish and Judas Priest.
Headlining the Sunday’s Sophie Lancaster stage in a UK festival exclusive with be Swedish black metal titans Watain. Frontman Erik Danielsson tells us, "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."
The full line-up of new additions reads as follows:
Bloodstock’s Rock Society tickets become available in the store on Halloween morning, 31st October at 9.00am!
