What people are saying about Bloodstock

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best UK metal festival 3rd year running and loved it. I always stay in VIP serpents lair camp where you get warm showers. People and staff were friendly and helpful as always. I won a backstage tour in a bloodstock competition and that was interesting. My favourite performance was Parkway Drive...just so good! I'll definately be back next year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great event but a few flaws As always Bloodstock delivers a good weekend of festival fun and music All the usual things like bands, merchandise and bars ...are up to the usual top notch standards But they knew about the impending weather tha was heading our way and could have prepared a bit better for the impact that the weather had. Especially as I was told on several occasions about the walk from car park to campsite And how difficult it had become.. they should have learned from prior year or other major festivals But in the whole. A great weekend wash had by my group of friends and myself Bring some good weather for next year ...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bloodstock 2019 Sunday First time at Bloodstock, just a taster for the Sunday. First impressions despite the weather and heavy downpours which had afflicted the site for the duration of the festival was that it was bearing up well, muddy yes but alright for getting about. Had a look at the camp sites and they had survived pretty well too. The overall vibe although a full on metal experience was of friendliness of the crowds and security combined. No queues for food or beers, excellent choices and you couldn't go wrong with the logistics, each of the stages in easy reach, great atmosphere's in all areas, easy to gain a great viewing position too. The ease of access and logisitics reminded me of Ramblin Man Fair which offers similar benefits for a festival crowd around the 15000 mark. For me, in all things metal; a constant feature is the craic and exchanges between the front men ( or women) and the crowds. Wytch Tripper, Dee Snider and even Cradle of Filth kept smiles on the faces of their fans with great humour, risque, dark or good natured. Overall it drives a spirit of camaraderie and fellowship amongst the metal scene loyalists. You know you are within a circle of friends. The aforementioned were the musical highlights of the afternoon and I would add a special mention for the young Aussie/Irish outfit - The Jailbirds in the Jaeger tent who ripped it up and pulled an ever increasing crowd throughout their set culminating in a double encore, refreshing energy and youthful enthusiasm aplenty but absolutely on it from start to finish. The Lazys were a bit hard done by in terms of being moved to the Sunday slot just before the Scorps but went for it in great style, shame about the sound problems. Queensryche delivered an accomplished set and those familiar with their material were loud in their approval. Soilwork the Swedish melodic death metal outfit from Helsinborg were worth a mention too, delivering their brand of polished accessible metal. Always makes me smile the term melodic death metal!! And so to the Scorpions, one of the main reasons I bought a ticket and decided to wet my toes with the festival this year, I confess to being north of 50 years of age and it had been 35 years since I saw the Teutonic rockers on the Blackout tour. You have to temper your expectation somewhat when a band has been on the go for 55 years and their lead vocalist is over 70 years of age. Klaus Meine looked a bit frail and unsteady but fair play to him he paced himself and came good in the second half of the set, letting his voice soar over the closing numbers. The German rockers brought their experience and visuals to the headline event and the staging, lights and backdrops were nothing short of stunning. I just laughed out loud at Rudi Schenker running around with his smoke machine built onto his guitar and Mikky Dee's drum solo on his suspended drum rig was ludicrous and majestic all at the same time. Mathias Jabs and Schenker played some wonderful twin riffs and exchanged solos throughout, there was even time to squeeze in an appearance from an acoustic flying V in the Unplugged section, mercifully the weather stayed dry for that piece, Wonderful to see the band so up close at the end of the walkway. Slightly surreal to see these icons in Southern Derbyshire I kept thinking.. So it was emotional to see these legends of the rock/metal scene still doing it despite threatening to retire last year. Klaus bade farewell with a "We Love You Bloodstock, we hope to see you again sometime", I am not sure we will, so it was great to Rock Like A Hurricane for old times sake. I left with a tear in my eye, looking to get my early Bird ticket for the full festival next year. Great job Bloodstock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Organisation at its best First time for me at Bloodstock and it will not be the last. Only went on the Sunday but from.the moment we arrived till way past midnight it was amazing. I am comparing it against Download , Sonisphere and Leeds all of which are excellent in their own ways. Positives - Welcoming security Bars inside the stage tents. Ease of access to all stages. Drinks served within 5 minutes ( oh what a differance to Download this year). Fantastic choice of food. ( reasonably priced). Main stage sound system unbelievable.(so clear). Lemmys Bar ( so so good ) Festival Staff 100% postive review. Taxi pick up/drop off so easy. Scorpions and Dee Snider . Negatives ---NONE .
