After last week's announcement that the mighty Machine Head will be letting fans pick the songs at their first ever UK festival headline slot - Bloodstock Open Air, Machine Head are now ready to take your requests.

If you head to http://www.facebook.com/Bloodstock you can submit your suggestions via a poll. Each fan can pick five songs from Machine Head's incredible debut 'Burn My Eyes', and the five most popular tracks will be performed at Catton Hall this summer.

Bloodstock can also reveal a further three acts for the Sophie Stage and one for the Ronnie James Dio Stage. Headlining the Sophie Stage on Thursday night, raucous rockers Viking Skull bring their loud and proud Metal to Bloodstock, alongside Belfast Metalheads Sweet Savage.

Hotly tipped newcomers Death Valley Knights show why in just a few short months their powerful Metal has earned them a much coveted spot at Britain's most Metal festival, and finally Canada's Kobra And The Lotus make their Bloodstock debut opening the Ronnie James Dio Stage on Sunday.

There's just two months to go until Catton Hall opens its gates for the most festive fun-packed Metal weekend the UK has to offer. With exclusive appearances for a plethora of bands, a host of comedy, fairground rights and alternative entertainment, Bloodstock Open Air 2012 is the hottest ticket this summer.

Bloodstock Open Air 2012 takes place at Catton Hall August 9th – 12th. Tickets are available by clicking here

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
