PARADISE LOST and WATAIN have been confirmed for next year's edition of the Bloodstock Open Air festival, set to take place August 10-12 at Catton Hall in Walton On Trent, Derbyshire, England.
Commented PARADISE LOST guitarist Greg Mackintosh: "We had the pleasure of playing the first-ever Bloodstock Open Air way back in 2005 when it was quite an intimate affair. It's an honor to be asked back to Bloodstock Open Air 2012, which looks to be shaping up to be a blinding festival. Since we last played, we have seen Bloodstock Open Air grow into the great British metal festival it is today. We look forward to seeing you all down the front."
Said WATAIN: "The United Kingdom has spawned many a thing inspirational to WATAIN, be it druidic sorcery, VENOM or JUDAS PRIEST. Our performances there have always been spiced with a nameless sensation of raw power, and this is the main reason why we have chosen Bloodstock to be one of the very few festival shows we will perform next year. As always, expect something very far from the ordinary."
The festival billing is shaping up as follows:
Ronnie James Dio Stage
Sophie Lancaster Stage
