Anyone who went to BLOODSTOCK this year would be amazed to see the strength and depth of metal on the upgraded big top ‘Newblood Stage’ and next year promises to deliver yet again. With their ale-loving friends at Hobgoblin continuing their support of BLOODSTOCK, the commitment to underground metal grows, as ‘Hobgoblin Presents BLOODSTOCK’s Metal 2 The Masses’.
BLOODSTOCK has an ever-increasing number of venues and promoters in the UK and overseas supporting their scheme to support ‘new blood’ bands, and in addition to their ‘battle of the bands’-style roadshow, there’s a raft of other entry platforms to get bands on to the bill at the UK’s heaviest of festivals. This really is an event with an eye on the future of metal.
Further to the tour itself, which begins in May 2014, BLOODSTOCK will also be taking CD submissions, and their Hobgoblin pals will be continuing their M2TM video upload programme worldwide, as in years prior. Look out for the print ads, coasters and special BLOODSTOCK branded beer bottles.
This year BLOODSTOCK have no less than 20 regions covered in the UK, including places as far afield as the Channel Isles, so if you’re unsigned or self-released and fancy sharing a spot on the bill with likes of MEGADETH, DOWN and EMPEROR, we suggest you get in touch with any of the following venues and make it happen!
Take it from the boys in Karybdis, one of the 2013 event’s successful bands, when they say “It was fantastic to have been part of BLOODSTOCK! No one does it better!”
