Posted by on August 16, 2021


Bloodstock Open Air is a long running outdoor music festival that takes place, every year, at Catton Park, Derbyshire, United Kingdom. This year’s festival is going on right now with headliners Devin Townsend, Kreator, and Judas Priest. It has been announced that the headliners of the 2022 festival will be Lamb of God and Mercyful Fate.

Lamb of God’s vocalist Randy Blythe says:

“It’s been way too long since we’ve rocked the festivals of Merry Olde — what better way to announce our return than a headliner slot at Bloodstock? Until then, pack your wellies and stay safe, England — Lamb of God (and Roger Brilliant) will see you summer 2022!”

Mercyful Fate had this to say to next year’s attendees:

“Mercyful Fate comes to Bloodstock…this will be a dangerous meeting you don’t want to miss. This time we are going to bring the Devil himself.”

One headlining slot remains open for 2022 keep it here for more info!
