Bloodstock 2019 line up Easter treats as 7 more artists are revealed

Organisers of the UK’s Bloodstock Open Air have revealed the names of seven more artists who’ll play at this year’s festival.

It'll take place at Catton Park, Derbyshire, on August 8-11, with Sabaton, Scorpions and Parkway Drive previously confirmed as headliners.

Today it’s been announced that Sulpher, Def Con One, Damnation's Hammer, Blasphemer and Zealot Cult will hit the Sophie Lancaster Stage on the Friday, while Witchtripper and Harbinger land Sophie Stage slots on the Sunday.

Bloodstock have also today announced that they’ve teamed up with the YoungMinds organisation, who support young people’s mental health across the UK.

YoungMinds will benefit from Bloodstock’s guest list donation scheme and will have a stand in the arena where you'll be able to find out more about their work and make a donation.

In addition, a further three Bloodstock club nights have been added in Leicester, Cardiff and Nottingham. The events will see fans getting the chance to win weekend tickets and more, while you’ll also be able to take part in a range of activities.
