BLOODSTOCK 2018 is all set to be the biggest yet, with tickets moving fast and set to sell out again in advance. If you want to join us at Catton Park in August, don’t delay in grabbing your tickets! The countdown is now on, with just 12 weeks to go!
If you’re arriving early on Thursday to set up your pitch, we kick off the festival arrivals night in heavy duty style with five awesome bands on the Sophie Lancaster stage.
ARKONA (www.facebook.com/arkonarussia) headline the party, bringing their pagan/folk infused tunes all the way from Moscow, Russia. The band’s current album, ‘Khram’ was released earlier this year. Check out ‘Shtorm’ taken from that release at https://youtu.be/7WXUq9q5RZc. Portsmouth death metallers and 2009 ‘Metal 2 The Masses’ alumni BLOODSHOT DAWN (www.facebook.com/pg/BloodshotDawn) also land a slot. Watch their official video for ‘Shackled’, taken from the recently released ‘Reanimation’ album; https://youtu.be/W79nOt56zq0. Bringing their bagpipes to the bill are folk metal outfit SKILTRON (www.facebook.com/skiltron).
