Seven more bands confirmed for Bloodstock Festival

Seven more bands have been confirmed for Bloodstock Festival!

Whilst fans are still patiently awaiting the third and final headliner, seven more bands have been confirmed for this year’s festival! Mancunian black metallers WINTERFYLLETH have been confirmed to perform on the Ronnie James Dio Stage to continue to support their latest studio effort, The Dark Hereafter, which was released last year.

The other six bands confirmed for the festival will perform on the festival’s second stage, The Sophie Lancaster Stage. Classic metallers DENDERA, rising doom metallers KROH, death metallers ABHORRENT DECIMATION, British experimental metallers BOSSK, underground thrashers WRETCHED SOUL and doompop outfit COURTESANS will all perform on The Sophie Lancaster Stage at this year’s festival. Speaking about the announcement, COURTESANS says, “to perform at Bloodstock is incredible exciting. It’s a huge honour to play the Sophie Lancaster Stage, her legacy is at the heart of our ethics. We’re advocates of equality and have a zero tolerance to any form of prejudice. We hope to raise a few eyebrows and stir some shit up!”
