Bloodstock organisers have added a further four bands to this year’s bill.

The event will take place at Catton Park, Derbyshire, on August 8-11, with Sabaton and Scorpions previously confirmed as headliners.

And today, it’s been revealed that Max Cavalera’s Soulfly, Powerwolf, Incite and Swallow The Sun will also play at the UK festival.

Soulfly will play on the Ronnie James Dio main stage on the Friday, with Cavalera saying he’s excited to be appearing at Catton Park.

He says: “Bloodstock 2019, get ready! It will be a Cavalera invasion! Soulfly will be playing a lot of songs off our new album Ritual (opens in new tab).
