First poster for Bloodstock 2020Bloodstock may only be getting into its stride, but already details have been announced for next year’s 20th anniversary event, which will take place over the weekend of 6 – 9 August 2020.

Next year, Catton Park will welcome an exclusive twin thrash attack, with Bay Area squad Vio-lence making their first ever UK appearance, while the renascent Sacred Reich will make their only UK festival appearance of the year.

Following their triumphant main stage performance in 2017, Skindred will bring the Newport Helicopter back to the fields of south Derbyshire.  There will be a double dose of melodeath on the main stage, thanks to The Black Dahlia Murder and Dark Tranquillity, while LA metal crew Butcher Babies round off the first announcement.

Bloodstock’s 2020 headline acts will be announced in due course.

If you’re on site this weekend, you can buy 2020 early bird tickets in person from the on-site box office for £130, with no booking fee!  Early bird tickets, VIP tickets, car parking, child tickets and campervan tickets will also be available online from 9am on Monday (12 August) at the ticket store.
