"Oh wow! It's been 10 years since our debut album 'Captain Morgan's Revenge' came out and somehow, it's also been 10 years since we last played Bloodstock Open Air! Let's have a very silly party time, Englandshire, I promise we won't be shite"

The much-lauded Pallbearer join with a Sunday slot on the Sophie Lancaster stage bringing their monumental, doom-laden, melodic heaviness to Catton Park. Arkansas-based The Little Rock,  have been praised by everyone from the New York Times to Loudwire, Decibel and Spin. Nottingham hard rockers, Fahran pick up a Friday slot on the Sophie stage, having just released a video for their latest track 'State of Mind', take from upcoming album Vapours.
