As you all know, Bloodstock is one of the safest and friendliest festivals in the country, and this is primarily because of the sense of community that you help create.
To say that we were shocked and upset by this crime is an understatement, and our thoughts are with the victim.
We think it’s pretty likely that someone will recognise the description of the perpetrator and we urge anyone who might have any information to get in touch with the Police as soon as possible – this can be done confidentially via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or direct to Derbyshire Police using the
details in their press release (link below).
We also respectfully ask that you don’t engage in public discussion or speculation about this on the Bloodstock forums or anywhere else on the web.
If the Police can catch the perpetrator of this horrendous crime, no one would want the chance of successful prosecution harmed by prejudicial comments
The safety of everyone at Bloodstock remains our priority and we’ll review our operations with the relevant authorities over the next few months.
