Bloodstock news: Bloodbath, Doro, Septicflesh and Fozzy announced for Bloodstock festival 2018

Latest update from Bloodstock

Bloodbath, Doro, Septicflesh and Fozzy announced for Bloodstock festival 2018

Bloodstock Festival gets even bigger!

BLOODSTOCK have announced four more additions to their August 2018 line-up.

German metal legend, DORO will be the Friday night Sophie Lancaster stage headliner.  With a career spanning over 30 years and 17 studio albums under her belt (including 4 with Warlock), DORO’s current label Nuclear Blast recently celebrated her 30 year anniversary with a 3 DVD box set, ‘Strong & Proud’; a great place to start if you’re not clued up on the Metal Queen.  Get a taster of what she does best with this live cut of ‘Raise Your Fist In The Air’ from Wacken:


WWE wrestling star Chris Jericho’s band, FOZZY join Sunday’s Ronnie James Dio main stage line-up.  Currently rampaging across Europe, the Century Media outfit dropped their seventh album ‘Judas’ last month and have racked up more than 10 million views of the title track’s video.  Check it out at:

Swedish death metal outfit, BLOODBATH will lay waste to the main stage on Friday.  Guitarist Anders Nyström tells us “After eight years, our time has come to put the BLOOD back in BLOODSTOCK!”  Not familiar with this supergroup featuring members of PARADISE LOST, KATATONIA and OPETH?  Investigate their video for ‘Church of Vestitas’, taken from 2014’s ‘Grand Morbid Funeral’ opus  and ready yourself for their long-awaited return!

Landing a Saturday spot on the main stage are Greek symphonic death metal squad, SEPTICFLESH.  First formed back in 1990, the pioneers unveiled their tenth record, ‘Codex Omega’ in September.  Record label, Season Of Mist are streaming the whole beast including a 360° video for ‘Dante’s Inferno’ over at:

With Friday night headliners, JUDAS PRIEST, Saturday night headliners, GOJIRA and Sunday headliners, NIGHTWISH already announced, along with EMPEROR, DEVILDRIVER, WATAIN, COMBICHRIST, NAILS, ORDEN OGAN and MEMORIAM so far, 2018 is shaping up to be another stellar year for BLOODSTOCK.

BLOODSTOCK’s first wave of Serpents Lair VIP tickets are now SOLD OUT!  The final allocation, the last batch of VIP deluxe packages and a limited amount of VIP upgrades priced at £145 (for those who’ve already bought ‘early bird’ tickets) will become available at 9.00am on 16th December in the ticket store.  Mark your calendars and don’t delay if you want to join us in 2018’s VIP Serpents Lair, as they’re moving faster than ever before!

Weekend tickets are still available in very limited numbers at an ‘early bird’ price (just £125 for four days of metal fun) so grab yours now at the ticket store if you want to save £20!  To keep up with inflation and increased costs in 2018, standard weekend tickets with camping will increase from last year’s £139 to £145 once the ‘early bird’ allocation sells out. Camper van pitches are also available now.

If you already know you can only attend for a single day, sign up for a day ticket reminder email as day tickets do not go on sale until next summer.  Register your day ticket interest here – https://www.seetickets.com/register/bloodstock.

BLOODSTOCK will take place at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 9th-12th August 2018.  Get additional information over at www.bloodstock.uk.com.

What ended up being your favourite set of Bloodstock 2019?!


Comment on Facebook

TesseracT for me. A truly flawless performance and they had the best sound of the weekend too.

Eluveitie for me personally. Loved the show!

Eluvietie were brilliant. Also Ten Ton Slug, Queensryche, Xentrix, Death Angel, Master’s Call, Helheim, Powerwolf, Anthrax...enjoyed quite a few. But Eluvietie topped them.

Loved this old school metal set

Easily TesseracT, honorable mentions to Thy Art, Parkway Drive and Queensryche too

Death Angel , Metal Church & Sabaton For Me !

Powerwolf for me, first time seeing them live.

The Parallax Method!

Ross the Boss ft KK Downing. Definitely. However Thy Art Is Murder surprised me the most. I dislike alot of metalcore /deathcore etc. It's really not for me - but they were great. And I enjoy whacking on their album ever now and then

Ross The Boss!

Queensryche and Dee Snider are tied for best of the weekend for me

How exactly did metal church get their logo you stand out like that? I remember thinking at the time that looks so impressive. Was it the world's most powerful high res projector or something?

Tesseract wheel control the storm 58 double queensryche grand magus scorps the lazys dee the fantastic powerwolf sabaton Ross the boss,with kk swallow the sun anthrax taake all hail the yeti

Dee Snider was amazing, as were Soulfly.

Dee fucking Snider although I was surprised how much enjoyed Ross the Boss. Speedhorn also awesome as were Wildhearts, cancer bats and incite 🤘🔥🤘🔥🤘

Sabaton and Bodom. Bodom deserved to be higher up the list. They should have opened for sabaton

Metal Church for me.

swallow the sun, closely followed by Dee Snider and Parkway drive

Dee Snider was fucking brilliant 🤘🏻

Powerwolf,Dee Snider,Hypocrisy

Hard to say! Either Scorpions, Dee Snider, Anthrax or Thy Art is Murder. Really cant norrow it further down!

Dee Snider owns the Dio stage every single time he graces it

It's a tie between Taake and Dee Snider.

Eluvuveitie, Dee snyder, hypocrisy,

DUST BOLT, Ten Ton Slug, Boss Keloid, Dee
