Bloodstock 2017  3

BLOODSTOCK wish you a Metal Christmas!

As we pelt into December, BLOODSTOCK HQ is getting some Christmas treats ready! As well as preparing the on-sale dates of VIP upgrades, the remainder of the VIP ticket allocation and this year’s deposit scheme, we’ve three more bands to announce for 2017!

Joining the BOA fray for the first time are SKINDRED. The boisterous Welsh crew mix a unique blend of reggae, punk and metal and are renowned for their live shows. If you’ve ever taken part in Evil Scarecrow’s epic ‘Crabulon’ before, get ready to join in with the Newport helicopter!
Also landing a main stage slot are Canadian thrash icons, ANNIHILATOR. Last year’s ‘Suicide Society’ album - the band’s fifteenth! - spawned tour dates around the globe, but rumour has it they’re heading back to the studio this month!
Rounding out today’s announcement are our crossover thrash buddies, MUNICIPAL WASTE! With last album ‘The Fatal Feast’ coming out four years ago, maybe BLOODSTOCK will get treated to a new tune or two?! Frontman Tony Foresta tells us “We are very excited to be finally returning to one of our favourite metal festivals - BLOODSTOCK! We’re looking forward to getting greasy with all of our UK fans!”
Already announced for 2017 are Friday’s headliners AMON AMARTH, plus BLIND GUARDIAN, HATEBREED, TESTAMENT, OBITUARY, BRUJERIA, WHITECHAPEL, POSSESSED, HELL and DECAPITATED. Many more are still to be announced!

Early bird weekend camping tix are on sale at a discounted £120 and due to exceptional demand, a limited number of VIP packages were put on sale last month on a first come, first served basis. This allocation quickly SOLD OUT! The remaining VIP allocation and a number of VIP upgrades (to accompany previously purchased early bird tickets) and will be available from 16th December, but don’t hang around if you want these, as VIP is set to sell out even earlier in 2017. Also stay tuned for details of 2017’s ticket deposit scheme (payable over 5 instalments) in just a few weeks time!

BLOODSTOCK will take place at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 10th-13th August 2017. Early bird weekend tickets with camping are available now, priced from £120 (+ booking fee) at http://bloodstock.seetickets.com/event/bloodstock-2017/catton-park/1010726/.
