Bloodstock 2015 adds headliners Delain and more for mighty metal weekender

Shrug off those January blues, for festival season is fast approaching!

Line-up announcements are coming in thick and fast, and Bloodstock is the latest festival to confirm more bands for 2015.

The mecca of all things heavy metal welcomes Delain as Friday night headliners, alongside already-announced Within Temptations, Trivium and Rob Zombie.

Dutch metallers Delain will headline the Sophie Lancaster stage, a cause very close to their hearts, they explain: “Having written our previous records’ title track, We Are The Others, about Sophie Lancaster, it will be an extra important and special occasion for us to headline the Sophie Lancaster stage and meet up with our friends at the Sophie Lancaster Foundation again.

“We look forward to rocking out at Bloodstock and hope to see many of you there!”

Fleshgod Apocalypse, Battalion, Mordred and Destrage complete Bloodstock’s latest additions, joining special guests Opeth and Sabaton.

Cannibal Corpse, Ihsahn, Sepultura, Orange Goblin, Nuclear Assault, Dark Angel and Enslaved will also appear across the weekend.

Bloodstock takes place between 6-9 August 2015 at Catton Park, Derbyshire – get Bloodstock tickets today.
