FUEL GIRLS TO OPEN FESTIVAL - DOC INSANE EXTREME CIRCUS SHOW - CELESTY ADDED TO LINE UP
With the METAL box solidly checked owing to a fantastic cast of some of the top names in heavy music, BLOODSTOCK are living up to the festival side of the name with the announcement of two acts perfectly matched for what will be the UKâ€™s Metal Festival experience of the Summer. THE FUEL GIRLS are the hottest, craziest and most sought-after group of performers to hit the rock, metal and extreme sports scene. If itâ€™s not their wild fire and whiskey fuelled stage show, itâ€™s their arena show, with a fire spitting buggy, bikes, cars, quads and t-shirt cannons! Having performed all over the world, from Las Vegas to Puerto Rico, THE FUEL GIRLS are now bringing their thrilling roller-coaster of a show to this yearâ€™s BLOODSTOCK, to kick of proceedings on the Thursday night
Perhaps not as easy on the eye, but as - if not more - extreme, DOC INSANE will be bringing his controversial live show to the fields of Derbyshire. The spawn of a Hellâ€™s Angel, this maniac rockâ€™nâ€™roller will treat the BLOODSTOCK audience to a performance that will make Jackass look like a Punch and Judy puppet show. Expect fire, nail beds, sledgehammers and hooks in places where they just plain donâ€™t belong.
Of course BLOODSTOCK is also about bringing awesome new music to the UK. The first to bring greats such as NIGHTWISH, WITHIN TEMPTATION and BLIND GUARDIAN to England, BLOODSTOCK has always prided itself on itâ€™s ability to pick out Metalâ€™s future superstars, and this year weâ€™re excited to bring you hotly tipped Finns CELESTY. These Epic-Metallers are a must-see for fans of acts such as Sonata Arctica, Manowar and Rhapsody Of Fire and a welcome addition to the already outstanding BLOODSTOCK line up. Formed in 1998, these Finns have just released new album â€œVendettaâ€ via Spinefarm Records. Orchestrated by Kalevi Ollie, better known for his work with the Finnish National Opera, with the Tampere City Orchestra lending their skills as well, the album is a grandiose tour-de-force, and the live show promised to take BLOODSTOCK attendees on a journey through the enchanted kingdoms of Epic Symphonic Power Metal.
