Bloodstock Festival adds five new acts


Five new acts have been confirmed for Bloodstock Festival!

Now reunited with guitarist Pepper Keenan, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY have been added to the Ronnie James Dio Stage. It’s been four years since the groove metal quartet last hit Bloodstock, so fans will likely want to snap up this rare opportunity to see the band at Catton Park this summer.

They’ll be joined by atmospheric US black metal act GHOST BATH, who will be making their UK debut at this year’s event, and are sure to turn heads when they hit the stage.

Joining the Bloodstock bill for the first time are Boston-based metalcore quartet UNEARTH, who will take to the Ronnie James Dio Stage on the event’s final day, Sunday 14th August.

EVIL SCARECROW are certainly no strangers to Bloodstock, having last played the event in 2014. The comedy metallers will be back in 2016 for their fifth appearance at the event and,

Finally, Aldershot ‘metal n’ roll‘ trio XII BOAR have been added to the Sophie Lancaster Stage. Brimming with Southern-infused rock anthems, the band will undoubtedly bring the party to Bloodstock 2016!

Don’t forget today is the last day to sign up to the Bloodstock 2016 Ticket Deposit Scheme! Head over to the Bloodstock website for more information:
