Now the dust has settled on this year's event, we're thrilled to announce that BLOODSTOCK 2017 was officially our most successful year to date! For the first time ever we welcomed a capacity crowd to Catton Park, selling out of our 15,000 weekend tickets in advance and having our highest ever single day ticket sales for GHOST on Saturday. With our Saturday headliners, GOJIRA and Sunday headliners, NIGHTWISH already announced for next year's event, 2018 is shaping up to be another stellar year for your favourite metal festival. Early bird weekend tickets (priced at just £125) are already moving quickly and once that special discounted allocation is gone, it's gone forever, so grab yours now at the ticket store if you want to save £20!
BLOODSTOCK Director & band booker, Victoria Hungerford comments, “We’ve been blown away by yet another incredible year!! Our first sold out festival, great weather, stunning performances from bands across all stages and the atmosphere this year had to be the best yet! We love and appreciate the BLOODSTOCK faithful, both old and new and they've certainly shown us what the metal community is all about. We’ve hit the ground running for 2018 with two perfect headliners already announced and one more to follow shortly… exciting times are ahead."
Our first wave of Serpents Lair VIP tickets go on sale at 9am on Monday 4th September for those who want their VIP spot guaranteed. Special VIP packages (Luxpads, Bellepads, Podpads, etc) and a limited amount of VIP upgrades will then become available on 16th December at 9am. Don't delay this year if you want VIP tickets as they're sure to sell out even faster than last year, as people make sure they don't miss out once they've experienced VIP for that first time.
This year, in order to keep up with inflation and extra costs, standard weekend tickets with camping will increase from last year's £139 to £145, with VIP tickets priced at £290. The limited allocation of VIP upgrades (for those who've bought early bird tickets) will cost £145.
For those of you wanting camper van tickets, in order to increase campsite space we're looking at moving camper vans across the road. Until we have finalised the new site layout, these will not be put on sale. We suggest to any camper van-ers wishing to take advantage of the early bird ticket price, that they purchase their early birds now while they're still available, then they can pick up their camper van pass when those go on sale. At the rate early birds are currently moving, we cannot 100% guarantee the early bird price will still be available by the time camper van passes go into the online store.
We wish to thank all our loyal metal brethren for keeping the faith and joining us once again at Catton Park this month! Roll on 2018 for the 'best one yet'! See you there, BLOODSTOCKers!
