Standard tickets are still available from ticket store. Now announcing 12 further bands who’ll be gracing Catton Park’s hallowed turf in August 2022.
Grabbing a Ronnie James Dio main stage slot on Saturday are JINJER! After being foiled at the last moment this year with visa and travel issues, all will be thrilled to see them finally join for 2022. As one of our most requested bands, all are looking forward to seeing tracks from their epic ‘Wallflowers’ album released only last month. Check out our Album Review HERE.
LORNA SHORE is being added to Saturday’s main stage bill. The New Jersey deathcore squad have been generating a huge buzz, so BLOODSTOCK is excited to welcome them to Catton Park. See ‘To The Hellfire’ from their ‘…And I Return To Nothingness’ EP that came out last month via Century Media.
Also snatching a main stage spot on Saturday, are Finnish metal squad LOST SOCIETY who have recently re-signed to Nuclear Blast with the promise of new music on the way. Consider yourself a Misfits fan? Then you won’t want to miss Friday’s main stage addition of Misfits OG, DOYLE. Bring some spooktacular entertainment to 2022.
