Headlining the Sophie Lancaster stage on Thursday night, our welcome party night, will be Phil Campbell’s All Starr Band. The Motorhead axeman will also officially open the newly christened ‘Lemmy’s Bar’ with the first drink at 5pm!! Come along to Catton Park early, pitch your tent and kick off the weekend’s festivities with Phil at Lemmy’s Bar!!
In addition to Phil and friends, two more bands get added to the Sophie Lancaster Stage. British extreme metallers The King Is Blind are delighted to return to Catton Park, following their crushing Bloodstock debut in 2014 and release of their debut album, ‘Our Father’ (Cacophonous Records) last month. Frontman Stephen Tovey recalls their previous visit:
"The Blodostock crowd welcomed us with open arms and raised fists on our last visit, so on the back of ‘Our Father’, we’re primed and chomping at the bit to bring a savage and energetic set of the heaviest metal to Catton Hall this August. You bring the beers, the horns and the headbanging, we’ll bring the riffs and the truly crushing metal.”
Homegrown doomsters, Witchsorrow also join the bill. Necroskull admits that
“It gives us no small amount of pleasure to once again rain doom down upon Bloodstock. It is an incredibly special place for us, and we are incredibly proud to stand alongside Twisted Sister, Venom, Slayer, and Paradise Lost in bringing heavy metal madness to Catton Park. Doom forever. Forever doomed.”
Oh and by the way....
