BLOODSTOCK Organisers Deliver an Early Six Band Halloween Treat

Bloodstock organisers have given fans an early Halloween treat with a six band announcement including Children of Bodom and Cradle Of Filth. Get more details here.



Following the news that Swedish metal titans Sabaton would be making their headlining debut at Bloodstock Open Air in 2019, organisers have given fans an early Halloween treat with a six band announcement.

The announcement sees Children Of Bodom land a Friday spot on the Ronnie James Dio main stage in a UK exclusive while Cradle Of Filth return to Catton Park’s main stage on Saturday. The British hellfiends are no strangers to the Bloodstock hallowed ground so expect both tricks and treats aplenty. Dani Filth had this to say about returning to Bloodstock; “Obviously we want to finish what we started ten years ago, that is to finish our set! And for that alone we are really, really looking forward to bringing a massive Cradle show back to the BLOODSTOCK fans. We f**king can’t wait!”

Prepare for heartbreak and a Seance when Cradle Of Filth return to Bloodstock in 2019:

Soilwork also pick up a Sunday slot in a UK festival exclusive. The Swedish metallers are currently hard at work in the studio on their eleventh studio album. The 2019 event will also see the return of the inimitable Dee Snider on Sunday’s main stage! Sunday will also see Queensryche take to the main stage on Sunday. The Todd La Torre-fronted outfit are putting the finishing touches on their forthcoming new album while Swedish death metal luminaries Hypocrisy also join the Main Stage bill on Sunday!

Bloodstockers love a bit of Swedish Death Metal so here’s Hypocrisy:

Bloodstock will take place at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 8th-11th August 2019. Get info on ticket packages and additional information over at

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
