Bloodstock 2018 adds At The Gates, Exhorder and more

Bloodstock is excited to announce four more bands for 2018! Tickets are moving faster than ever for 2018’s weekender, with ‘Serpent’s Lair’ VIP tickets sold out completely! Don’t delay in picking up your ticket before August comes around. We’re expecting another weekend sell-out this year! Now for the latest band announcement…

Sunday’s special guest on the Ronnie James Dio main stage will be At The Gates. The Swedish melodeath overlords are hard at work on the follow up album to 2014’s At War With Reality which is set for release on 18th May via Century Media. Check out their latest studio report over on drummer Adrian Erlandsson’s YouTube channel.

Cruising into a Saturday night special guest slot on the Sophie stage are seminal New Orleans thrash pioneers, Exhorder. Arguably the creators of the original sound that Pantera honed and took to the masses, when we learned the band had reformed, Bloodstock had to bring them to Derbyshire! Check out their classic 1990 debut studio album, Slaughter In The Vatican on YouTube.

Las Vegas sludge metal beasts, Weight of the Tide land a Sophie stage slot. The band released second album, All Told via Undergroove Records late last year. Check out a taster of that release via the video for “The Architect”.

California death metal outfit, Sangre also join the Sophie stage bill. Not familiar with Sangre? Then get a taster over at their Bandcamp page.

If you haven’t grabbed your ticket yet and are a bit stretched post-Christmas, Bloodstock’s payment plan helps ease the ‘lump sum’ shock of paying for your ticket by breaking it into five smaller, more manageable amounts. Sign up in the ticket store any time before 28th Feb for an initial deposit of £36.00. Thereafter, four additional instalments of £29.00 will debit your bank account on 3rd April, 1st May, 1st June and 2nd July respectively. Find out full details and sign up over at

With Friday night headliners, Judas Priest, Saturday night headliners, Gojira and Sunday headliners, Nightwish already announced, along with EmperorDevilDriverWatainCombichristNailsOrden Ogan and Memoriam so far, 2018 is shaping up to be another stellar year for Bloodstock.

If you already know you can only attend for a single day, sign up for a day ticket reminder email as day tickets do not go on sale until next summer. Register your day ticket interest here –

Bloodstock will take place at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 9th-12th August 2018. Get additional information over at
