Summer for rockers and metalheads is almost like the Holiday season for a kid, mainly because we are so excited for the many great festivals and gigs coming up. For a metal fan, Bloodstock Festival is like Christmas.
And much like Christmas, the lead-up to the weekend is full of surprises. The latest one from Bloodstock HQ is a handful of bands announced for the Jagermeister stage.
If you have never experienced the wonderful weekend of Bloodstock Festival, Jagermeister Stage is the smallest stage, but by no means is it the least eventful. It even has its own bar and orning.
This week the following bands were announced to play this stage:
Friday sees sludge instrumentalists Wall – featuring Ryan and Elliot Cole of Desert Storm & The Grand Mall
Reading power trio Black Emerald
Slap-bass and drummer duo Ale Of Adam

and on Sunday we have blues-rockers The Howling Tides
