The festival line-up announcements just keep rolling (rolling, rolling, rolling) in this week don’t they! Today we have the news that Bloodstock festival have announced four more awesome bands for their 2017 lineup.
Swedish metallers Soilwork are set for an appearance on Catton Park’s main stage. Frontman Bjorn “Speed” Strid says; “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!!!”
Chicago’s Macabre are appearing in a headline slot on the Sophie Lancaster stage and guitarist/vocalist Corporate Death says; “We haven’t been back to the UK in several years but BLOODSTOCK is exactly where MACABRE should play if you know our music.”
Also announced are Finnish metallers Wintersun who are also set for a Sophie Lancaster stage headline slot! They say; “It’ll be great to come back to the atmospheric BLOODSTOCK. We had a blast in 2011, but this year is extra special since we’re going to play new music for you guys! See ya in August!”
The final announcement for today is Egyptian death metallers Scarab, who will be taking their place on the bill on the Sophie Lancaster stage!
