Bloodstock announce Ghost as Saturday night headliner!

By on 3 April 2017

Bloodstock have announced GHOST as Saturday night headliner! This will be GHOST’s first ‘ritual’ at BLOODSTOCK and watching their amazing stage show after dark is sure to be quite the religious experience!  Check out a taster of what might be in store in the live clip above from Hellfest 2016.

A Nameless Ghoul informs us:

“We are absolutely chuffed to finally be playing at the classic BLOODSTOCK.  Over the years we have heard so many great things about it and now, to be able to headline one of the nights, is a great honour and we are very much looking forward to it.  Thank you all and see you there!”

GHOST, who are hot off the back of their Popestar UK tour, channel the early sounds of Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Mercyful Fate and Judas Priest, as well as elements of prog and late ‘60s psych rock, so couldn’t be more at home on Catton Park’s hallowed turf.  Papa and the Ghouls current album, ‘Meliora’ spawned the Grammy Award-winning track, ‘Cirice’, the video for which has clocked up almost 16 million views on YouTube:

‘Meliora’ was followed in September 2016 by their critically lauded ‘Popestar’ EP, featuring the hugely sticky ‘Square Hammer’. We can’t wait to welcome them to Catton Park in August!

VIP tickets and upgrades are now moving very quickly, with some packages already sold out, so if you’re planning on ‘going VIP’, grab yours soon to avoid disappointment.
