Bought your BLOODSTOCK 2019 ticket yet? We’re more than halfway there now; just 19 weekends remain ‘til you can be back with your metal brethren on the hallowed ground of Catton Park. But with more than 80 bands still to announce and a host of other goodies in store to reveal too, it’s on with the show revealing eight more exciting acts joining the UK’s best metal weekender this August.
Brit tech/prog extremists, KRYSTHLA will kick off proceedings on the Ronnie James Dio main stage on Saturday. The band is currently in the studio working on their third studio album, set for release this Summer, so expect new material in August!

Six more bands pick up spots on the Sophie Lancaster stage, bringing their glorious noise for your delectation on both Thursday and Friday. Kicking off the fun after you’ve set up camp on Thursday are doom-laden riff-mongers, BARBARIAN HERMIT, classic hard rockers BLIND RIVER, groove-heavy slug-lords TEN TON SLUG and bringing the party and all the laughs for opening night, FOOTPRINTS IN THE CUSTARD. On Friday on the Sophie stage, we also welcome melodic death metal beasts COUNTLESS SKIES and sludge metal squad BONGCAULDRON.
