Bloodstock Festival Announces Second Headliner!

Down to headline Friday night at Bloodstock Festival.

New Orleans Sludge champions Down are preparing to conquer Derbyshire next August as the opening headline act for Bloodstock Festival.

Arguably one of the finest metal frontmen of his generation, Philip Anselmo is looking forward to setting foot on Bloodstock's hallowed soil, stating: “We are more than elated to be a part of Bloodstock Festival this coming year! This should be a blast, and I hope everyone shows up to support this great event!"

Bassist, Pat Bruders adds: “I’m looking forward to another great time at Bloodstock Festival! When I was there two years ago with Crowbar, it was a blast! Down is getting ready to tear it up at Bloodstock in 2014, so get ready people! Let’s BRING IT!"

Tickets for 2014's event are already on sale at ‘early bird’ prices, a bargainous £115 for a 4-day weekend ticket with camping. Don't delay, as once the limited ‘early bird’ allocation is gone, it's gone, and tickets revert to full price. Pick up your discounted tickets now from the Bloodstock store.

This year, over 1.2 million fans from across the world logged on to watch the bands on the Bloodstock main stage, via the Daily Motion live link. 2013 was Bloodstock's biggest ever attendance at just shy of 14,000 and with a site licence of 15,000 we are expecting the 2014 event to sell out in advance, so don’t wait too long to get your tickets!

Already announced as Saturday night headliners are black metal overlords, Emperor, who are only playing a very select number of shows in 2014. Bloodstock is to be their only UK performance and Emperor's only other currently announced 2014 show at Germany's Wacken Festival is already sold out.
