The UK festival will take place at Catton Park, Derbyshire, on August 9-12, with artists including Judas Priest, Gojira, Nightwish, Fozzy, Doro Pesch, Orphaned Land and At The Gates all previously confirmed.

Now it’s been announced that Alestorm, Pallbearer, Fahran and Doomsday Outlaw have been added to the bill.

Alestorm frontman Chris Bowes says: “Oh wow! It’s been 10 years since our debut album Captain Morgan’s Revenge came out and somehow, it’s also been 10 years since we last played Bloodstock Open Air!

“Let’s have a very silly party time, Englandshire. I promise we won’t be shite.”
