Yes, the wonderful wonderful sound of cats screeching, nails being dragged down blackboards and foghorns warning ships of impending disaster will all be heard as the 4 DJs of The Apocalypse return to host Bloodstock's legendary karoake sessions on the Lava Stage in the Guitar Hero 3 Marquee. Each night from around 11.30pm, Death will again be running proceedings ably assisted by Famine, War and Pestilence (just the elements you need at a Festival) as we bring you the cream ready for you to sour with your wailings of distress or tuneful passionate singing as some called it. In 2007 Schlumpy was the face of our karaoke and he's back - bigger and sillier ready to orchestrate the crowd to give his verdict on each and every one of you. So, wailings of distress it is then.
We've timed the karaoke to dovetail with the last note of the last band on the Main Stage to ensure maximum impact. The 4 DJs will be warming up (particularly Death) as you guys wind your way from the Main Arena via booze, bogs or burgers to the wildest manic metal party vibe that Bloodstock is famed for. This really is The Gathering. This is the gig that everyone talks about with the "I was there" grin. So make sure you get your vocal chords lubricated, your stage presence perfected and your lyrics learnt. Of course you can just do what everyone else does and just get your name down, get pissed, get up on stage, wonder what the hell you're doing there and then belt out the track of your choice to adoring thousands who also wonder what the hell you're doing there.....just before they follow you up to do the same.
This year, we've doubled the size of the marquee to make sure we can squeeze you all in and with an increased choice of tracks this year's karaoke is set to blow away previous incarnations. If you've got a particular track or opinion you'd like Death to embrace, drop his alter ego a line on firstname.lastname@example.org to let your voice be heard!
