Frontwoman Sharen den Adel enthusiastically comments:
We’re thrilled to play Bloodstock again! We had such a great time before and can’t wait to take Hydra to the stage at Catton Park. It’s a really exciting time for us right now and we’re looking forward to bringing the fire!!
Slotting in to the Saturday night special guest slot are Swedish progmeisters, Opeth. Having landed at #14 on the UK album charts last week, their highest chart position to date for new studio album, Pale Communion, OPETH are looking forward to returning to Bloodstock. Comments frontman Mikael Akerfeldt:
We’re happy to confirm that we’ll be back at the Bloodstock festival next year! I don’t know how many times we’ve played there now, but it’s a real great place, a nice festival run by nice people. Too bad it’s like….a year or so away!?
