With Saturday headliners, GOJIRA and Sunday headliners, NIGHTWISH already announced for next year’s event, 2018 is shaping up to be another stellar year for BLOODSTOCK.

The first wave of Serpents Lair VIP tickets (priced at £290) are now on sale for those who want their VIP spot guaranteed.  A second wave, including Deluxe VIP packages (Luxpads, Bellepads, Podpads, etc) and a limited amount of VIP upgrades will then become available on 16th December at 9am.  Don’t delay this year if you want to join us in the VIP Serpents Lair, as they’re sure to sell out even faster as people make sure they don’t miss out after experiencing VIP for the first time in 2017.

Standard weekend tickets are currently available at ‘early bird’ prices (just £125 for four days of metal fun) and are moving very quickly, so grab yours now at the ticket store if you want to save £20!  In order to keep up with inflation and extra costs in 2018, standard weekend tickets with camping will increase from last year’s £139 to £145 once the ‘early bird’ allocation is gone.  The limited allocation of VIP upgrades (for those who’ve bought early bird tickets) will cost £145.

Meanwhile, remind yourself of this year’s festival by watching this exclusive live footage of Friday night headliners, AMON AMARTH performing ‘Guardians of Asgaard’ over at BLOODSTOCK’s official YouTube channel – https://youtu.be/-KT0W-3uTfA.

BLOODSTOCK Director & band booker, Vicky Hungerford comments, “We’ve been blown away by yet another incredible year in 2017!!  Our first sold out festival, great weather, stunning performances from bands across all stages and the atmosphere this year had to be the best yet!  We love and appreciate the BLOODSTOCK faithful, both old and new and they’ve certainly shown us what the metal community is all about.  We’ve hit the ground running for 2018 with two perfect headliners already announced and one more to follow shortly… exciting times are ahead.”

Daniella Leopard Dylan Jones 😂😂😂

Yea, they were fucking dreadful and he was basically a massive Bellend. Blatantly Little man syndrome

Unfortunately I did yes.

Yeah loved it! Met them in the signing tent, hope Cradle of Filth get announced!!

Awesome band, the sound was abit lost on a day time open air stage but I’m glad Dani Filth is a decent enough bloke to forgive all the fucking cunts in the metal scene (refer to comments in this post) and come back to Bloodstock after what happened last time. Hopefully Cradle will come again next year.

Please don't announce them again. Dani is a knob

Yes! And they were amazing, some sound difficulties but the same happened to a few bands throughout the day... And they were awesome in the signing tent! He was so nice to me and gave me a hug and let me have a pic even though we were like the last in and the guy said no pics! So what’s all the shit about him being a dick?! 🙄

Phil Sparks ?

Have to admit, they weren't for me.

Nice makup Kale A. Deane

Gazz Cavalera Do you remember last December, winters temper, flaccid member 😂😂😂😂

Love Devilment...and Cradle. Have met Dani and he was totally fine! Cradle for Bloodstock!

First time watching them and meeting the band. Was always told Daniel was a dick, but honest truth, I've never felt so appreciated as a fan when speaking to him. Even went out of his way to shake my hand again as I was leaving the tent. I really don't understand the hate. The performance was fantastic and my mates who were with me were pleasantly surprised how good it was. Would be great to have cradle there again. They have reformed themselves the past couple of years and have never been better! I try and be unbiased about cradle as I am a big fan. I can critique on some of there stuff as I believe they have released some pretty week music in the years, but they have also released some incredible music. Hope to see them back.

Nah.. didn't fancy the idea of bleeding ear drums in a field!

Love Cradle, but this band is just a so dull

Sam Brunt Kim Brunt

Yep I saw them for the 1st time and ironically I was listening to Cradle of Filth this afternoon too.

Listened to a couple of songs before danis screeches went through my head and I walked away

Stuart Brown is that you lol

He over uses the screeches in this band.
