Bloodstock’s summer bill is expanding further with more bands being added onto the Sophie Lancaster stage.

Joining the previously announced Sophie stage headliners Goatwhore, Diamond Head and Acid Reign across the weekend are old school death metal marauders Memoriam (featuring former members of Bolt Thrower and Benediction) and symphonic metallers Pythia.

There’s also a stone cold slab of tech-metal from This Is Turin, ballistic thrash metal from One Machine and progressive metallers Derange heading into the Sophie Lancaster stage over the August weekender.

Check out the full line-up below with Slayer, Twisted Sister, Mastodon, Anthrax and more!

Bloodstock have also announced a load of heavy metal club nights across the UK with more to follow. They’ll be holding loads of Bloodstock giveaways so it’s well worth rocking up.
