Date: August 8th, 2013 – August 11th, 2013
Venue: Catton Hall, Derby
England’s biggest metal festival, Bloodstock Open Air, is one that attracts all varieties of heavy loving fans thanks to its broad spread of bands across many metal genres. Boasting an average attendance of around 10,000 people it has the appeal of being big, but not too big. This year’s edition features something for older fans in King Diamond, something for younger fans in Lamb Of God, and something for flat out psychos in Slayer.
