Conjurer set to work their magic at Bloodstock 2020


From Scruffy Murphys to the headline stage at BLOODSTOCK. That’s the incredible journey that Birmingham’s local heavy heroes CONJURER are set to complete on the Saturday of next year’s festival at Catton Park, Derbyshire.

Described as “ultra-gnarly, monstrously heavy” by Metal Hammer, record label Holy Roar released their debut album Mire (reviewed here) to vast praise last year. See the video for the tracks ‘Thankless’ above.

Bloodstock has also announced that the mighty SAXON will be special guests on the Ronnie James Dio main stage on Sunday! The NWOBHM legends recently released live album The Eagle Has Landed 40 (Live) to celebrate 40 head-bangin’ years and word has it, have been in the studio with Andy Sneap working on new music too.

Watch a clip of classic track ‘747 Strangers In The Night (Live)’ from the new live release. The band have said to expect their biggest, boldest show yet.

Also joining the Sunday main stage line up, are ORANGE GOBLIN with their unmistakable heavy metal blend of stoner, doom, black, crust, and southern rock. After a four-year wait, the London-based group released latest album The Wolf Bites Back last year, and are revving up to celebrate their 25th anniversary in 2020.

It’s also been announced that Thursday’s Sophie Lancaster stage headliners will be none other than Swedish hard rockers THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA! The Nuclear Blast signed band, who boast members of Soilwork and Arch Enemy amidst their line-up, are promising a new album for 2020 but if you’re not familiar with them yet, make time to check out ‘This Time’ from their current release Sometimes The World Ain’t Enough.

On Sunday, the Sophie stage welcomes Canadian power metal squad UNLEASH THE ARCHERS. Have a listen to ‘The Matriarch’ from their acclaimed last album Apex, or pick up their new limited edition Explorers EP which includes two special cover songs and was released by Napalm Records in October.

Don’t forget, this Sunday (15 December) is the last day to snap up standard weekend tickets with early bird discount, if stocks last until then!  On Monday 16 December, standard weekend tickets will move from £130 to £145; keeping the price the same as 2019.
