Metalcore pioneers Killswitch Engage are set to headline the Ronnie James Dio main stage on Friday, their first ever appearance at the festival. Meanwhile, thrash legends Megadeth will close out proceedings in spectacular style on Sunday night. Other confirmed main stage bands include Devildriver, Fit For An Autopsy, Knocked Loose, Decapitated and Gatecreeper.

Over on the Sophie Lancaster Stage, Zeal & Ardor will headline one day (tbd) and expect to also see sets from King 810 and Unto Others. Stay tuned for more 2023 surprises soon.

Early bird weekend camping tickets went on sale online at 9am Monday 15th August, priced at £150 (+ bkg fee) at the ticket store. Serpents Lair VIP tickets and camper van passes (which always sell out very quickly, so don’t snooze if you’re after one) will go on sale at 9am on Wednesday 17th August. Once the early bird allocation has sold out, standard weekend tickets will increase to £165 (+ bkg fee). For the first time in 2023, there will also be a child’s VIP ticket available, so mini moshers can join their parents in the VIP area and camping at a more reasonable cost.

Bloodstock will take place at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 10th-13th August 2023. For more info, click here.
