Following the announcement of Friday night headliners, JUDAS PRIEST, Saturday night headliners, GOJIRA and Sunday headliners, NIGHTWISH, BLOODSTOCK has now announced three more bands for its 2018 line-up.
Joining Friday’s bill in the Ronnie James Dio Main Stage ‘special guest’ slot are black metal legends, EMPEROR in a UK exclusive appearance. Frontman Ihsahn has confirmed a special set based around one of their classic albums.
Also stepping into a Main Stage slot on Sunday are Californian circle pit kings, DEVILDRIVER.
Frontman Dez Fafara said:
“We couldn’t be more fucking ready to bring the heavy and get the whole festival moving! We are thankful for the opportunity and can’t wait to see everyone there! Get ready to get the fuck in the pit!”
Finally, hotly-tipped three-piece, NAILS will also land a Ronnie James Dio Main Stage slot on Sunday in a UK exclusive show.
Frontman Todd Jones commented:
“I’ve been following BLOODSTOCK and looking at their advertisements online for the past few years, admiring how great a job the festival does having a great mix of underground bands and some of metal’s biggest and finest. We’re proud to finally say we’re part of what BLOODSTOCK is doing to fight the good fight! We’ll see all you motherfuckers at BLOODSTOCK!!!”
BLOODSTOCK will take place at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 9th-12th August 2018.
