As 2017 settles in, four more bands have been locked in for August’s Bloodstock festival, which takes place at Catton Park, Derbyshire, on 10th - 13th August.


Soilwork have been confirmed for the main stage.   



Frontman Björn ‘Speed’ Strid said:


"We are really thrilled to return to UK soil after a killer mini-tour with Arch Enemy last year.  That ended with one of the most spectacular and sweatiest shows to date at The Underworld in London.  Bloodstock is always a riot and we cannot wait to hit the stage this summer.  Bring it England!!!"  


‘Murder metal’ outfit Macabre are set for a headline slot on the Sophie Lancaster stage, where they will be joined by Wintersun and Eqyptian death dealers Scarab.
