With just eight weeks until Bloodstock 2019, the bands for this year’s Jägermeister Stage have now been revealed.

Belfast’s Skypilot bring their heavy riffs and groove to Catton Park’s Jäger Stage on Friday, joined by Leicester grunge/hard rock outfit, Graves and blues Metal squad, Beggar. On Saturday, Irish heavy groove trio, Black Shuck and one man Death Metal outfit Foul Body Autopsy are welcomed. Sunday’s bill features Irish/Australian hard rockers, Jailbirds, as well as Womenowar. A second batch of Jägermeister Stage bands will be announced next month.

British Manowar tribute Womenowar, not to be confused with American act Womanowar who were forced to change their logo and remove videos from YouTube after the threat of legal action from the band they seek to honour, are also on the bill. In a remarkable coincidence, or possible intervention from the Gods Of Heavy Metal, Womenowar play Bloodstock on the very same day that Manowar’s original and true guitarist, Ross The Boss, plays Bloodstock’s Main Stage.

Bloodstock are also pleased to announce the second wave of New Blood winners from their ‘Metal 2 The Masses’ finals, who all bag a spot to perform on the Hobgoblin New Blood stage. The finals are still taking place around the country, so get down to your local event and support grass roots music and help shape Bloodstock’s line-up.

Landing a Friday New Blood Stage slot are Burnley’s winners, the Southern/doom Metal squad, Grand Elder, Bournemouth’s Black/Death Metal victors Anakim, and thrash/prog groovesters Blind Divine who triumphed in Cardiff’s final. Saturday’s line-up welcomes Wrexham’s top dogs, Scars Of Remembrance and joining Sunday’s New Blood fun are Elyrean, the melo/tech thrashers who won in Wolverhampton, Hitchin melodeath victors Fear Bound, and instrumental tri-guitar Stoke champions, Lost In Lavender Town.

You can pick up weekend tickets for £145 (+ fees) and children’s weekend tickets at just £35 (+ fees) right here. VIP tickets, including Podpads, Bellepads and Octopads, plus VIP upgrades (for those who’ve already purchased a standard ticket) will sell out shortly, so grab yours ASAP.

Friday night’s headliner Sabaton, Saturday’s top dogs Parkway Drive and Sunday’s bill toppers Scorpions are joined by Ross The Boss, Queensrÿche, Dee Snider, Eluveitie, Grand Magus, Evil Scarecrow, Anthrax, Dimmu Borgir, Children Of Bodum, Rotting Christ, Krysthla, Xentrix, Code Orange, Cancer Bats, Powerwolf, Soilwork, Cradle Of Filth, Thy Art Is Murder, Tesseract, Metal Church, Soulfly, Death Angel, Swallow The Sun, Aborted and many more with more bands still to be announced.
