The organizers of Bloodstock Open Air 2013 have announced today their first headliner for next year's festival. It will be Danish metal legends King Diamond.

After a six-year touring hiatus, the band returned to the stage in 2012 for European festivals, Hellfest and Sweden Rock. Friday night's closing performance at Bloodstock Open Air 2013 marks not only their first ever UK festival appearance, but their first UK show of any kind in many years and will be their only UK date in 2013.

When asked about Bloodstock, the mighty King stated: "I'm looking so much forward to this, we all are. Finally back in England! The people at Bloodstock have gone the extra mile to make this possible, and will be expanding the stage to fit our full production. This is gonna be dark and very heavy!"

King Diamond will join previously announced special guests Anthrax and Accept, and UK exclusive appearances from Firewind and Fozzy.

Bloodstock Open Air 2013 will take place at Catton Hall in the UK from 08-11 August, 2013. Get all the information about the festival at http://www.bloodstock.uk.com.

And to be honest grammatically it is correct. It's the same as saying Saxon are confirmed as headliners, Metallica confirmed as headliners. Actually a band is plural just like the police is a plural word

Been saying it for the past 2 years, but I might finally go to BOA this year; I would love to see KD live (would probably even prefer MF but I can take this ha)

You misunderstood what I meant. I agree with using "headlinerS" because people generally refer to bands who are named after their vocalist/guitarist/whatever in the singular even not in the case of solo projects. For example I agree with Alice Cooper being a "headliner" because the lineup always changes in that band, but King Diamond or Halford are "headliners" because the core line-up is the same so it's not a one-man effort.

Boo hoo about Mercyful Fate though

How do you know this? up there it clearly says that they expanded the stage specifically for their show.
