Bloodstock have just added two more bands to next year’s packed festival bill.

The headliners for the Saturday night have been confirmed as Meshuggah (joining Killswitch Engage and Megadeth at the top of the bill), while elsewhere Helloween will join as special guests on the main stage on Sunday. “Playing the UK is always something special for us,” enthuses bassist Markus Grosskopf. “Back in 1989, the energy and dedication of the British fans was the decisive reason for us to record our first live album Live In The UK there, instead of any other country in the world. Our headlining shows in May 2022 once more proved why the UK is the cradle of metal!”

Bloodstock takes place at Catton Park in Derbyshire from August 10 – 13, 2023.
