Watch Parkway Drive Perform Crushed At Bloodstock 2019
Last month, Parkway Drive made history by headlining their first ever British festival – the UK’s premier heavy metal fest, Bloodstock Open Air.
Walking through the swarming crowd, carrying huge torches aloft, Parkway blasted through a hellacious set of punishing beatdowns and more riffs than you can handle, primarily taken from latest two albums Reverence and Ire. Let’s face it, who can deny the power of Wishing Wells and Vice Grip?
But it was the absolute rager of Crushed that (quite literally) set Catton Park alight, which you can watch below in all it’s fiery glory.
“I’ve seen a lot of bands over Bloodstock’s 19 years and the anticipation for Parkway Drive’s headline set this year was one of the greatest - and they did not disappoint,” says Bloodstock festival booker Vicky Hungerford. “The production was insane and our biggest to date at the festival! I’ve never had so many messages from fans, both old and new about how blown away they were after seeing Parkway destroy Bloodstock.”
Bloodstock celebrates its 20th year next year, and takes place August 6-9 at Catton Park, Derbyshire. Announced so far are Vio-Lence, Sacred Reich, Butcher Babies, The Black Dahlia Murder, Skindred and Dark Tranquillity. The first headliner will be announced at the end of September.
Tickets are on sale now. There’s also a limited number of VIP tickets available via a deposit scheme, which you can purchase from 9am on September 12.
