The Bloodstock Open Air festival is the U.K.'s biggest and best full-on metal festival, and this year marks its fifth open air event once again at Catton Hall at the south of Derbyshire. The festival has grown over the years and is now one of the most important dates on any metalhead's calendar. The festival has always hosted a varied line-up of both popular and underground metal and this year is no exception.

Catton Hall will once again be the home to this great event. It is located in the middle of the Derby, Birmingham, Leicester, Nottingham square - with the nearest towns being Lichfield, Burton upon Trent and Tamworth. The location of Catton Hall can be viewed at this location.

A shuttle bus service will also run from Lichfield and Burton upon Trent, information on the shuttle bus service as well as opening times, age restrictions, camping and any other information you may need can be found at this location.

No - Carcass are headlining their day and Cradle Of Filth are co-headlining with Blind Guardian on the second day.
Even when they are still playing on different days, Carcass' slot will be later than Cradle Of Filth's slot the next day, so I don't know why you think this.

I think those viking warriors they're having this year would be interesting. Do you think the bloodstock team were influenced by that guy who was dressed up in all those carlsberg cases last year? haha funny stuff. Something different i suppose

Music wise I can understand your sentiments, but performance wise they would most certainly have been the most fun thing on stage there.

Yes! I am looking forward to this - hopefully I'll bump into some of you there.

About Gwar - well, I saw them at Wacken and was quite surprised really. They actually did put on a very entertaining show, it is a shame they won't be here after all.

That was a really really fantastic festival (apart from the Cradle Of Filth incident).
I'll have my pictures on sometime today and my review on probably tomorrow some time.

I did three interviews with members of Die Apokalyptischen Reiter, Blind Guardian and Equilibrium. They will be on as soon as possible too!
