The extreme metal veterans join Lamb of God and Mercyful Fate for th 2022 edition of the heavy music pilgrimage at Catton Park.

After an awesome 2021 festival, Bloodstock has wasted no time in lining up 2022! Black metal legends Behemoth will be joining the 2022 lineup to close out the Ronnie James Dio main stage on Friday. 

Behemoth’s Nergal comments: “BLOODSTOCK has a very special place in BEHEMOTH’s heart. They are one of the first major European metal festivals who took risks to position BEHEMOTH as a festival headliner; a game changer for us in the UK! I can’t wait to get back onto the legendary grounds of Catton Park and raise some monumental hell with our legions! Until August!” 

Behemoth has spent all of lockdown writing new material and just put on a mammoth of a live stream in celebration of Halloween. While you wait for next summer, enjoy this live clip of “Evoe”, taken from their In Absentia Dei stream, which sees a live release on 17th December via Nuclear Blast.  

Las Vegas based Spiritworld will be bringing their brand of “death western”  on Saturday on the main stage in a UK festival exclusive! The band is dropping their debut Pagan Rhythms album via Century Media this friday November 5th! If their live set is anything like their videos, Bloodstock goers are in for a treat!

Swedish legends Dark Funeral have been added to Sunday’s main stage in yet another UK festival exclusive. It’s been five long years since their last album, but the band has confirmed they have finished recording their seventh album with producer Daniel Bergstrand, with a prospective release date of March 2022. 

Belphagor will be gracing the Sophie Lancaster stage and have a new album slated for 2022! Frontman Helmuth comments: “Hail! We are proud to announce that BELPHEGOR was again invited to the ingenious BLOODSTOCK Open Air in Derbyshire, England in August 2022 and we will shred the Sophie Lancaster stage. Be prepared!” 

The Sophie stage will also see Heart Of A Coward, Ferocious Dog, Blood Youth, Black Tongue and Hariot. 

With tickets selling faster than ever, all VIP packages, early birds, and campervan tickets are already sold out. Weekend camping tickets & child tickets are on sale now at the ticket store.
