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

Now it’s been revealed that Conjurer, Power Trip, Forgotten Remains, A Forest Of Stars, Alien Weaponry and Bio-Cancer will also perform sets over the weekend.

Power Trip will play on the Ronnie James Dio Main Stage on the Saturday, while Conjurer, Forgotten Remains and A Forest Of Stars will perform on the Sophie Lancaster Stage the same day. Alien Weaponry and Bio Cancer will take to the Sophie stage on the Sunday.

Bloodstock organisers have also announced the dates of all 31 grand finals of the Metal 2 The Masses programme, which supports regional venues and gives local bands the opportunity to grab a spot at the festival’s Newblood Stage.

In addition, Bloodstock’s official travel partner Big Green Coach have added Cambridge and Norwich to their list of 23 pick-up points to take you to the festival.
