Weekend tickets to this summers five-day Bloodstock festival are sold out. A limited number of one-day tickets remain, with the Judas Priest headlining Sunday tickets very limited. The last set of bands has been added to the bill, and the festival is ready to go in just three weeks.

Saturday opening slot on the Sophie Lancaster Stage is alt Metal four-piece Netherhall, who won their slot through the Planet Rock Radio band competition.

The second phase of the Metal 2 The Masses programme has finished, with eleven more grassroots bands winning a New Blood stage slot. South Wales-based Pearler, Kent’s Struck/Down, Leeds’ Sound Of Origin, Birmingham’s Insurgent, and Northern Island’s Elder Druid have secured a Friday slot.

Brighton’s Kinzoku, Chesterfield’s Irontooth, Wolverhampton’s Blood Church, Nottingham’s Cotton Mouth, Stoke’s The Ghoules and Scotlands Nassaum will all appear on Saturday.
