Bloodstock 2017 Adds Soilwork, Macabre, Wintersun And Scarab

Bloodstock Open Air 2017 continues to pile on the quality name bands from across the metal genre. Now joining the already packed bill are Swedish metallers Soilwork, US death metal legends Macabre, the enigmatic folk/prog band Wintersun, and Egypitian baddasses Scarab.

Björn ‘Speed’ Strid commented:

“We are really thrilled to return to UK soil after a killer mini-tour with Arch Enemy last year. That ended with one of the most spectacular and sweatiest shows to date at The Underworld in London. Bloodstock is always a riot and we cannot wait to hit the stage this summer. Bring it England!!!”

Corporate Death of Macbre commented:

We haven’t been back to the UK in several years but Bloodstock is exactly where Macabre should play if you know our music.” Don’t miss this rare opportunity to catch this unique band on UK shores!

BOA 2017 already features Amon Amarth, Megadeth, Blind Guardian, Hatebreed, Testament, Obituary, Brujeria, Whitechapel, Possessed, Hell, Skindred, Annihilator, Municipal Waste and Decapitated.

The first wave of VIP tickets has already sold out and the remainder are expected to sell out in early 2017.

Available now is the deposit scheme/payment plan. The payment plan helps ease the ‘big lump’ shock of paying for your standard weekend ticket by breaking it up into five smaller, more manageable sums. You can sign up in the ticket store at any time between 22 Dec and 28 Feb, with an initial payment of £34.80 payable at that point. Thereafter, four additional instalments of £27.80 will debit your bank account on 1st April, May, June, and July respectively. Find out further details over at
