Watain and Memoriam Among Latest Additions to 2018 Bloodstock Open Air Festival

Bloodstock Open Air 2018 Festival Header

The UK’s most metal festival just got that bit heavier! The Bloodstock Festival team have four more bands for everyone just in time for Halloween.

First up for Bloodstock Open Air 2018 this time out are next year’s Sunday night Sophie Stage headliners – Watain! If Nightwish aren’t you thing, you can enjoy some of the blackest metal around from one of metal’s most revered extreme bands of recent times.

Watain are joined by three bands taking to the Ronnie James Dio main stage across the weekend. Firstly, UK metal veterans Memoriam will be pummelling the senses on the Friday of BOA 2018. Secondly, US industrial metallers Combichrist will be teaming up with Memoriam on the main stage on Friday. Last but not least, German power metallers Orden Ogan (a new band to our ears here at Rock Sins) will be ripping it up on the Saturday of next year’s Bloodstock Festival. These four bands join 2018 headliners Nightwish, Gojira and Judas Priest along with Devildriver, Nails and Friday special guests Emperor!

Halloween will also see the launch of Bloodstock’s Rock Society tickets, for which we’ll hand over directly to the organisers to tell you about:

Bloodstock’s Rock Society tickets become available in the store on Halloween morning, 31st October at 9.00am! The ‘Rock Society’ is effectively the festival’s ‘Members Club’, offering not only a 10% discount on your weekend ticket (on top of the early bird discount if you purchase the Rock Society membership + ticket bundle option), but all sorts of other cool benefits like priority signing tent access, a Rock Society laminate, access to the VIP Serpents Lair bar, a tour of the backstage & production areas to see ‘behind the scenes’, the chance to meet with the festival organisers, a dedicated hangout area in the Rock Society tent on site, a Rock Society Facebook community where you can make friends and get to know your fellow RockSoc members and plenty more besides. Full details can be found at http://www.bloodstock.uk.com/pages/rock-society. Memberships are priced at £75, limited to 300 and sell out almost immediately, so don’t delay if you want to pick one up.
