Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Following their headline show at London’s Alexandra Palace over the weekend, Parkway Drive have been confirmed as the third and final headliner for Bloodstock 2019.
They join the already announced Friday headliner Sabaton, and Sunday headliner Scorpions.
“We’re pretty damn excited,” says Parkway Drive frontman Winston McCall. “This will be our first shot headlining a UK festival. Bloodstock has a hell of a reputation and is renowned for having one of the best festival sites and atmospheres going. We’ll be bringing full production, we want to give Bloodstock a set that’s worthy of a headline slot! We’re psyched! Thanks for having us.”
Parkway Drive join a Bloodstock line-up that also welcomes Anthrax, Dimmu Borgir, Children of Bodom, Code Orange, Powerwolf, Soilwork, Cradle of Filth, Thy Art Is Murder, Tesseract, Metal Church, Soulfly, Death Angel, Dee Snider, and many more.
All arrive in Catton Park, near Walton on Trent in Derbyshire, from the 8 – 11 August 2019.
Bloodstock Festival brings together a wealth of artists from across the heavy music spectrum, consistently offering an exciting mixture across its top level. This year is no different, with the melodic meeting the brutal – and everything in between.
Parkway Drive arrive following the release of last year’s Relevance, and album that once again took them to No.1 on the Australian charts, and into the top 15 in the UK.
Their recent headline performances have drawn widespread critical acclaim, praised for their top quality production and its visual spectacular.
Sabaton have been delivering Swedish power-metal since the release of their 2005 debut Primo Victoria. They are currently working on their follow-up to 2016’s The Last Stand.
Scorpions arrive at Bloodstock with almost half a century of music behind them, most recently releasing Return to Forever in 2015. Their career includes the likes of Still Loving You, Wind of Change and Send Me an Angel.
