After last week’s headliner announcement – where we revealed the mighty MACHINE HEAD will be letting fans pick the songs at their first ever UK festival headline slot – BLOODSTOCK and MACHINE HEAD are now ready to take your requests.

BLOODSTOCK can also reveal a further three acts for the Sophie Stage and one for the Ronnie James Dio Stage. Headlining the Sophie Stage on Thursday night , raucous rockers VIKING SKULL bring their loud and proud metal to BLOODSTOCK, alongside Belfast metalheads SWEET SAVAGE. Hotly tipped newcomers DEATH VALLEY KNIGHTS show why in just a few short months their powerful metal has earned them a much coverted spot at Britain’s most metal festival, and finally Canada’s KOBRA & THE LOTUS make their BLOODTOCK debut opening the Ronnie James Dio Stage on Sunday.

There’s just two months to go until CATTON HALL opens its gates for the most festive fun-packed metal weekend the UK has to offer, With exclusive appearances for a plethora of bands, a host of comedy, fairground rights and alternative entertainment, BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR 2012 is the hottest ticket this summer.
