Killswitch Engage & Megadeth confirmed for Bloodstock 2023


While the sound of BLOODSTOCK may still be ringing in your ears, the first wave of bands have already been announced for next year – set to take place on 10-13 August 2023 at Catton Park, Derbyshire.

Metalcore giants KILLSWITCH ENGAGE are set to headline the Ronnie James Dio main stage on Friday, their first ever appearance at the festival. Meanwhile, thrash legends MEGADETH will close out proceedings in spectacular style on Sunday night.

Other confirmed main stage bands include DEVILDRIVER, FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY, KNOCKED LOOSE, DECAPITATED and GATECREEPER. Over on the Sophie Lancaster Stage, ZEAL & ARDOR will headline one day (tbd) and expect to also see sets from KING 810 and UNTO OTHERS

Early bird weekend camping tickets are on sale online priced at £150 (+ bkg fee) at the ticket store. Serpents Lair VIP tickets and camper van passes are also on sale. Once the early bird allocation has sold out, standard weekend tickets will increase to £165 (+ bkg fee). For the first time in 2023, there will also be a child’s VIP ticket available, so mini moshers can join their parents in the VIP area and camping at a more reasonable cost.
