Bloodstock’s Metal To The Masses gets underway in January

Bloodstock BOA 2015Fancy a chance to get your band a slot at Bloodstock (and maybe also Wacken and Metaldays)? Here’s the skinny from the folks running Metal to the Masses 2015…

We’re proud to announce that we’ve teamed up with the brewers of our favourite ale, as we host the Hobgoblin Newblood Stage and offer up a raft of options for you to get your band to Bloodstock.

Focused on Unsigned and Self Signed bands we’ll be looking at acts from both the UK and abroad through either The Metal 2 The Masses, Video Uploads or good old fashioned CD submissions … yep remember them?


Hobgoblin will be opening up the search worldwide via , inviting acts to submit their videos online from mid January 2015. Fans can vote for their favourite act, with the winner bagging the coveted slot on the Newblood stage. In exchange for their vote, participants also win the chance to take home a whole host of music-related prizes via an ‘instant win’ competition.


Bands can apply directly to local promoters who are running showcase events up and down the UK – these could also win you a further slot on the Sophie Stage 2016 along with slots at Wacken (Ger), Metaldays (Slov) and a raft of other additional prizes.

This scheme is focused on UK acts and full details can be found on the website, but to beat the rush these are some of the Promoters running events in their regions.

If none of these regions suit and you feel a venue closer to you may be willing to host the events, then please email us their details and we will contact them.


The following promoters are running events in their regions that could see your band playing at Bloodstock (Additional Wacken slot not included)

Please note more Promoters / Venue details will be coming on board all the time so check the website. If you have a venue in your region/country that would be interested in running events then please email moc.k1544604783u.kco1544604783tsdoo1544604783lb@no1544604783mis1544604783


If you are a signed to a label or self release act wishing to apply for the Newblood Stage (but not via the M2TM), then please send CD’s and Biogs to the following address. This is open to bands both European and Worldwide ….
