With just six months to go until Bloodstock's 20th anneriversary weekend, organisers have announced seven new additions to the bill along with a new gaming arena debuting at the festival.
First up on the bill are Brit thrash luminaries, Acid Reign who are set for a Friday slot on the Ronnie James Dio main stage! Having returned in 2015 after a 24 year hiatus, frontman H says, "Anyone who witnessed our 2016 show on the Sophie stage knows exactly how much we love playing Bloodstock. There is a lot of excitement in the AR camp right now, we finally got a new album out after all these years (29 to be exact) and now we get to put a Bloodstock sized cherry on the top of that cake. Can't wait to see you all there!"
Also appearing on Friday’s main stage, are Bristol’s hardcore punk crew Svalbard who released their It's Hard To Have Hope album through Holy Roar Records in 2018.
Goth-soaked metal newcomers, Idle Hands will open the main stage on Sunday! The Portland-based band are hot off their recent US support slot to the mighty King Diamond and the release of their debut album, Mana via Eisenwald Records.
