The Bloodstock Rock Society was formed in 2002. It was a very early example of ‘crowd funding’ and was created to support the festival primarily, with some added benefits such as priority access to the Signing Room at the Assembly Rooms, Derby.
There were around 50 members initially. However, over the years it has developed into a community of around 300+ who are to all intents and purposes, the festival’s fan club. There are 52 Lifetime members of the Rock Society who have had a Rock Society place reserved for them since 2004. A number of Lifers now run the Rock Society for the membership and are now form part of the festival team itself.
There are 300 memberships available every year for those who want to be part of this exclusive community of Bloodstockers. Any Bloodstocker is welcome to join. Once people join they tend to return every year as they love being part of it. All Rock Society members have some things in common; the love of all things Bloodstock and all things metal.
