Spring is almost here, and Bloodstock 2023 is only 135 days away. There have been a couple of lineup changes, with DevilDriver and Nonpoint, with Abbath filling the slot on Saturday’s Ronnie James Dio main stage, Bossk moving to the Sophie Lancaster stage, and Pest Control added to the lineup.
“We’re really looking forward to coming back to the UK to shake the Bloodstock foundation,” Abbath say. “It’s been way too long.” Dez Fafara shared a statement recently, which you can read below, explaining that following a bad bout of Covid-19, he has been advised not to take long flights.
This year Bloodstock will welcome Metal fitness company Rockfit, who mix cardio, dance, and some serious body-sculpting set to a pure rock and Metal playlist for those that like it loud.
Hopefully, the weather will be warm, so you will be able to indulge in some black ice cream. To help build the excitement, Bloodstock will hold their next Facebook Live show on 6 April at 7 pm. Their club nights begin the following day, and you can see the current list of these below.
