As festival season draws closer – more and more bands are being announced for various festivals across the board.  Bloodstock is no different adding one more band to the main stage and five to it’s famous Sophie Lancaster stage.

On the main stage are anthemic black-metallers Winterfylleth

While classic metallers Dendera join the Friday line up for the Sophie stage

On Saturday, doomsters Kroh take the Sophie stage

ABHORRENT DECIMATION

On Sunday, UK experimental metal from Bossk

London Doom-pop outfit, and RAMzine’s ones to watch, Courtesans

Courtesans had this to say:

“To perform at BLOODSTOCK is incredible exciting. It’s a huge honour to play the Sophie Lancaster Stage, her legacy is at the heart of our ethics. We’re advocates of equality and have a zero tolerance to any form of prejudice. We hope to raise a few eyebrows and stir some shit up!”
