BLOODSTOCK brings the new breed! Applications are still open!

Bloodstock 2013BLOODSTOCK are excited to announce the first batch of breaking bands to grace their freshly designed ‘New Blood’ stage in 2013. The stage is sponsored by BOA’s favourite thirst-quenchers, Hobgoblin.

Bloodstock has always been proud to support new bands from all over the world and the ‘New Blood’ stage gives them the platform to showcase the latest new acts, asserting their belief that you don’t necessarily need a major label record deal under your belt to get a shot at playing the fest.

The following bands were chosen from CD applications to perform at the festival, while more will be added later through the ‘Metal 2 The Masses’ scheme and the Hobgoblin video upload.

The lucky seven span the range of the metal spectrum and are…

Dishonour The Crown (Hardcore)


Karybdis (Tech Death)


Fahran (Hard Rock)


Diesel King (Sludge)


Left Unscarred (Metalcore)


Amulet (NWOBHM)


Merciless Terror (Thrash)

Has your fave new band not been selected yet? Fear not, for Bloodstock intend to keep hunting out new additions via CD applications, video uploads, and the mighty ‘Metal 2 The Masses’ events! There’s plenty more to come and still time to enter!
