Canadian speed merchants Annihilator, crossover rockers Skindred and thrash revivalists Municipal Waste have been added to the line-up for 2017's Bloodstock Open Air. Taking place from 10 - 13 August, at Catton Park, Derbyshire, the trio join already announced headliners Amon Amarth, along with Blind Guardian, Testament and others for the Midland's metal event.
Furthermore, Bloodstock HQ is getting some Christmas treats ready, with on-sale dates of VIP upgrades, the remainder of the VIP ticket allocation, and this year’s deposit scheme all being readied.
Joining the BOA fray for the first time are Skindred. The boisterous Welsh crew mix a unique blend of reggae, punk and metal and are renowned for their live shows.
Also landing a main stage slot are Canadian icons, Annihilator. Led by mainman Jeff Waters, the Canadians will be hitting Bloodstock in support of last years' ‘Suicide Society’ album - the band’s fifteenth.
Rounding out the latest band announcement are our crossover thrash buddies, Municipal Waste. Says frontman Tony Foresta; “We are very excited to be finally returning to one of our favourite metal festivals - Bloodstock! We’re looking forward to getting greasy with all of our UK fans!”
Other acts already announced for 2017 include Friday’s headliners Amon Amarth, plus Blind Guardian, Hatebreed, Testament, Obituary, Brujaria, Whitechaple, Possessed, Hell and Decapated.
